Disney+ (pronounced Disney Plus) is a streaming service produced by the Disney Media and Entertainment Distribution unit of the Walt Disney Company. It launched on November 12, 2019.

It started as a domestic service, and then expanded internationally after Fall 2019. The service is the exclusive home to Disney-owned original content from Disney, Pixar, Marvel Entertainment, Lucasfilm, 20th Century Studios, and National Geographic channels.

Launch

Disney+ was launched early in the Netherlands on September 12, 2019 as a free trial. It officially launched in the Netherlands, United States and Canada on November 12, 2019 just before 3:00 a.m. EST (UTC–5). Disney+ launched in Australia, New Zealand, and Puerto Rico on November 19, 2019, and launched in Austria, United Kingdom, Spain, Italy, Germany, Ireland, and Switzerland on March 24, 2020. Disney+ is expected to launch in Eastern Europe, over the course of a year, and Latin America, over the course of three months, both starting in October 2020. In Spain, a linear Disney+ TV channel launched alongside the streaming service, which broadcasts programming from Disney+. It's available exclusively on Movistar+, their release partner in the region.

In December 2019, it was announced that Canal+ would be the exclusive distributor of Disney+ in France. Three days before the launch, Kevin Mayer, chairman of the Direct-to-Consumer & International division, announced that Disney+ is delaying its launch in France until April 7, instead of the original March 24 date, because of a request from the French government to prevent internet gridlock as the response to the COVID-19 pandemic placing additional strain on communications networks.

In February 2020, Iger announced that it planned to launch Disney+ in India on March 29, 2020 by means of its existing service Hotstar, rebranding its paid tiers as a co-branded service. Hotstar was acquired by Disney during the Fox purchase, and has been the dominant streaming service in the country.

In April 2020, it was announced that Disney+ original content will be licensed to pay TV and streaming operator OSN, starting on April 9, in the Middle East and North Africa region with Disney noting that they had no current "plan to launch Disney+ as a standalone service in the region in the near future".

The service launched in Japan on June 11, 2020 as part of Disney's existing partnership with NTT Docomo, and succeeded their existing Disney Deluxe service in the region for the Disney+ Originals.

Disney+ launched in Indonesia through Hotstar on September 5, 2020, and in Portugal, Belgium, Finland, Iceland, Luxembourg, Norway, Sweden, and Denmark on September 15, 2020, and is set to launch in Latin America on November 17, 2020.

Returning Programming

Main article: List of returning programming on Disney+

Canceled Programing

  • Muppets Live Another Day - An original comedy series planned to have featured the Muppets and Josh Gad that would have taken place after the events of The Muppets Take Manhattan.
  • Book of Enchantments - An adaptation of Serena Valentino's book series exploring the origins of various Disney Villains in a shared universe setting.
  • Kingdom Keepers - An adaptation of the book series to have been headed by Kevin Smith planned to have featured Russell Brand as Captain Hook as the lead villain. Rejected after new management in the division decided it used "too much Disney IP" despite having been greenlit as a "Disney version of the Avengers".
  • Untitled Marvel Television series - An untitled series developed by Marvel Television. The series, alonsgide all planned Marvel Television projects that haven't entered production, was cancelled after Marvel Television was folded into Marvel Studios.
  • Unannounced Tron show - A show based on the movie of the same name.
  • The Complete Tales of Beatrix Potter - An animated series based off of the The 23 Original Tales... books by Beatrix Potter was planned for Disney+, but it was cancelled for being too expensive and because Sony released a film adaptation of Peter Rabbit.

Censorship

  • Despite the disclaimer saying that they are presented as created, the version of Fantasia used on Disney+ has Sunflower removed, and The Three Little Pigs has the Big Bad Wolf's Fuller Brush Man disguise instead of the original Jewish peddler disguise. In addition, Santa's Workshop is missing a scene of a black doll that says "Mammy!" while throwing out its arms, a la Al Jolson.
  • The banned TaleSpin episodes "Last Horizons" and "Flying Dupes" and the banned Darkwing Duck episode "Hot Spells" are not available on this service (even though the TaleSpin episodes were released on DVD).
  • The Toon Disney edits of TaleSpin episodes are used on this service (despite the episodes having been released uncut on DVD).
  • Some of Disney's animated films on Disney+ have some minor edits:
    • Saludos Amigos has the beginning of El Gaucho Goofy with the cigarette butchered.
    • The Sword in the Stone uses the UK release, which partially censors Madam Mim's line: "Sounds like someone's sick. How lovely. I do hope it's serious; something dreadful." The "serious/dreadful" was cut.
    • The dryer was replaced by a pizza box in Lilo & Stitch due to concern of children hiding in the dryer (though this edit was already present in the film's UK release).
  • Splash is censored, with some of Madison's nude scenes being either cropped or censored by way of digitally extended hair.
  • The version of Adventures in Babysitting used on Disney+ is the TV airing version which censors all swearing.
  • The National Geographic documentary Free Solo also censors all instances of swearing (including an "F-Word").
  • Several animated films have had their original variant of the Walt Disney Pictures logo replaced with the 2006/2011 variant, those films include:
  • All episodes of Andi Mack featuring actor Stoney Westmoreland, are unavailable on the service, following his allegations, and subsequent arrest of sexual assault.
  • The Simpsons episode "Stark Raving Dad" is unavailable on Disney+, following the release of the documentary film Leaving Neverland, which details allegations against Michael Jackson of child sexual assault.
  • The Disney Channel original series Wizards of Waverly Place had some scenes of minor cleavage blurred.
  • Several Bluey episodes have many content from the original Australian airings changed or removed to "suit" American audiences (even though the Bluey episodes were originally aired on ABC Kids without any editing changes and later released on DVD in Australia only).
    • "Markets" removes the horse taking a poop when Bluey Heeler and Indy run away.
    • In another episode, "Chickenrat", the sauerkraut makes Bandit Heeler sneeze (he burped in the original Australian airing of the episode).
    • The "BBQ" episode replaces the word "capsicum" (from the original Australian airing) with "pepper".
    • The ending of the episode, "Taxi" removes the part where Bingo Heeler pretends to barf on Bandit.
    • The episode "Daddy Putdown" is missing the part when Bingo Heeler asks Bandit Heeler how babies get in the mother’s belly. This was removed since, in Disney’s eyes, it was a bit too cheeky and inappropriate.
    • The episode "Teasing" uses the AUS September 2020 edited version, where a racial scene with the word "ooga booga" was removed due to a complaint by a viewer stating that the episode included a term with racial connotations and a problematic history for Black people.
    • In the season 2 episode, "Trains", Bluey Heeler's line, “It’s a piece of poo” (from the original Australian airing) was changed to “That’s a slug”.
    • The season 2 episode, "Flat Pack" uses the AUS August 2020 edited version, where another racial scene with the word "ooga booga" was also removed.
    • In the season 2 episode "Escape", the word "axe" (from the original AUS airing) was changed to "pick".
  • The Toy Story 2 outtake of Stinky Pete promising a role in the sequel to two twin Barbie dolls was removed after 2018 to avoid any #MeToo-related controversy.
  • In Hamilton, two "F words" were omitted from "Yorktown (The World Turned Upside Down)" and "Washington on Your Side"; however, a third, partially unfinished one used in "Say No to This" is retained.

Aborted Censorship

  • The version of Clock Cleaners used on Disney+ partially restores Donald Duck's argument with the mainspring, where he yells at it, "Says you!" (and it answers back, "Says I!"), but his calling it a "snake in the grass" is replaced with garbled squawking, as was the case when the cartoon was featured on the Walt Disney Treasures DVD set, "Mickey Mouse in Living Color", and beyond.
  • The version of Melody Time used on Disney+ fully restores Pecos Bill's cigarette, which was last seen on the 1980s VHS American Heroes.
  • X-Men: Days of Future Past began streaming on Disney+ in mid-2020, with both nudity and swearing intact.[1]
  • The Wolverine began streaming on Disney+ on September 4, 2020, with swearing intact.
  • The Fault in Our Stars began streaming on Disney+ on September 25, 2020, with both sexual scenes and swearing intact.
