Launch as a standalone Disney+

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, the United Kingdom, Spain, Italy, Germany, Ireland, and Switzerland on March 24, 2020. In the UK and Ireland, Disney+ replaced DisneyLife. In Spain, a linear Disney+ television channel launched alongside the streaming service. The channel is available exclusively on Movistar+, which serves as Disney+'s launch partner in the region.

In December 2019, it was announced that Canal+ would be the exclusive distributor of Disney+ in France. The launch in France was delayed from March 24 to April 7, pursuant to a request from the French government to conserve network capacity due to the Coronavirus pandemic placing additional strain on communications networks.

In April 2020, it was announced that Disney+ original content would be licensed to pay TV and streaming operator OSN, starting on April 9, in 17 countries 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 the existing Disney Deluxe service in the region.

Few months later, Disney+ service expanded in Portugal, Belgium, Finland, Iceland, Luxembourg, Norway, Sweden, Denmark, and Greenland on September 15, 2020; and in Latin America and the Caribbean on November 17, 2020.

The service expanded to Singapore on February 23, 2021.

On August 12, 2021, Disney announced that it would launch in the Middle East and Africa in mid-2022. Following the announcement, all the Disney+ original content has been removed from OSN, which its platform were previously host Disney+ original content through licensing since April 2020.

It was announced that the service would also expand to Central and Eastern Europe, Hong Kong, Taiwan, South Korea, Israel, South Africa, and Turkey later in between 2021 and 2022. Among them, it has been confirmed that the service would launch on November 12, 2021, in South Korea and Taiwan, and on November 16, 2021, in Hong Kong. It will be available in more than 50 nations by 2022 and in more than 160 by the end of 2023.

On March 29, 2022, Disney announced that it would launch the service in South Africa on May 18, 2022, in the Middle East and North Africa (excluding Syria) on June 8, 2022, in most of the remaining European countries on June 14, 2022, and in Israel on June 16, 2022.

The launch date in the Philippines was set for November 17, 2022.

The Disney Bundle

Alongside the launch of the standalone Disney+ service in the U.S., Disney also announced a bundle including its other U.S. streaming services Hulu (ad-supported version) and ESPN+, marketed as The Disney Bundle, initially for US$12.99 per month; the monthly price of this plan subsequently increased to $13.99. Additional variants of the bundle were later added including the ad-free and Live TV variants of Hulu; then, in late 2021, Disney+ and ESPN+ became non-removable parts of the Hulu + Live TV package.

In connection with the August 10, 2022, announcement of the ad-supported version of Disney+ launching on December 8, several new bundle options and increased prices were announced as taking effect the same day. Monthly prices for these plans range from $9.99 (for a new bundle with ad-supported versions of Disney+ and Hulu, but not ESPN+) to $82.99 (for Hulu + Live TV with ESPN+ and the ad-free versions of Disney+ and Hulu streaming content).

Bundled options are also offered in Latin America incorporating Disney+ and Star+, as well as Lionsgate's Starzplay service in some countries of Latin America. In Brazil, there is also a bundle of Disney+ and Globoplay offered on Globoplay's website.

Launch as Disney+ Hotstar

Main article: Disney+ Hotstar

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. However, it was postponed due to the Indian Premier League being rescheduled due to the COVID-19 pandemic. It was then launched on April 3, 2020. A few months later, Disney+ launched in Indonesia through Hotstar on September 5, 2020.

On February 25, 2021, it was reported that Disney+ was launched in Malaysia and Thailand through Hotstar within 2021. It was later confirmed that the launch would take place in Malaysia on June 1, 2021, and Thailand on June 30, 2021. Later on, there was a report stating the service is expected to launch in Vietnam in 2022, but due to numerous delays on the launch as most of its content is being added, the exact date remains unknown.

Whilst not branded under Hotstar, a variant of the Disney+ Hotstar app for non-PC devices was made available for the 17 MENA markets, including Israel, as the Disney+ service officially launched in June 2022 in said markets, which feature the same user interface and login system as Hotstar, and does not support the Disney ID SSO like the international version of the Disney+ app does. In fact, users in the MENA markets are met with an error message upon booting the international version of the Disney+ app, and MENA Disney+ subscribers cannot access their accounts outside the region, and vice versa.

Star content hub launch

Main article: Star (brand)

Star, Disney+'s brand for general entertainment content launched on February 23, 2021, in Canada, Europe, Australia, New Zealand, and Singapore. Star was added to Disney+ in Japan on October 27, 2021, and launched along with the service in South Korea and Taiwan on November 12 and Hong Kong on November 16.

Merger with Hulu

On May 10, 2023, Disney announced that they would introduce an app in the U.S. which combines Disney+ and Hulu content by the end of the year.[1]

On May 18, it was announced that Disney+ and Hulu will remove nearly 60 original films and series on May 26 in order to "cut costs." The news sparked some backlash, mostly towards the initial decision to remove Howard, the documentary on the life of lyricist Howard Ashman, on the eve of Pride Month, and the release of the live-action adaptation of The Little Mermaid. However, it was confirmed the next day that film will remain available on the service.[2][3] In early September, Comcast moved the date from which Disney can acquire Hulu to September 30.[4]

On March 27, 2024, Disney+ officially added Hulu to the service.[5] Previously, this was in beta testing for some subscribers of the Disney Bundle.[1]

Returning programming

Main article: List of returning programming on Disney+

Cancelled programming

  • 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. It was cancelled due to internal creative differences.
  • 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".
  • Lizzie McGuire revival series — a continuation of the Disney Channel series, meant to focus on an adult McGuire living in New York City. It was cancelled due to creative differences from the show's creator Terri Minsky.
  • Untitled Oswald the Lucky Rabbit series - Developed by Matt Danner, a pitch for a streaming Oswald the Lucky Rabbit series was developed alongside Legend of the Three Caballeros, with its existence being revealed through animation union blogs. While it was long speculated that a full series was finished and vaulted much like Three Caballeros, Matt Danner has clarified that only a pilot was produced before the project's cancellation.

Edits and omissions

  • Despite the disclaimer saying that they are presented as originally 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 two scenes: 1) a scene of a stereotypical black doll that says "Mammy!" while throwing out its arms, a la Al Jolson; and 2) as the toys parade into Santa's sack, a toy of a stereotypical Jewish man, and both Aladdin and The Return of Jafar had minor edits (see below).
  • The TaleSpin episodes "Last Horizons" and "Flying Dupes" and the Darkwing Duck episode "Hot Spells" are not available, though the TaleSpin episodes were released on DVD.
  • The Toon Disney edits of TaleSpin episodes are used on this service, instead of the original uncut versions which were previously released on DVD.
  • The Proud Family episode "Don't Leave Home Without It" is omitted from most digital services (save for iTunes, Disney+, and the complete series DVD) due to music licensing issues.
  • Some of Disney's animated films on Disney+ have some minor edits:
  • Frankenweenie (live-action featurette) uses the 27-minute edited version as seen on VHS instead of the original 30-minute theatrical cut.
  • Splash was originally heavily edited prior to November 2022, with some of Madison's nude scenes being either cropped or obscured by way of digitally extended hair. However, the 4K version restores all of those scenes, as of November 13, 2022.
  • Adventures in Babysitting uses the TV airing, which censors all scenes of profanity and trespassing.
  • Darby O'Gill and the Little People uses a theatrical re-release version with a cropped widescreen aspect ratio and re-dubbed voices that lose the more authentic Irish accents.
  • The Santa Clause has the inappropriate phone number replaced.
  • The National Geographic documentary Free Solo uses the UK release, which censors all scenes of profanity and trespassing.
  • All episodes of Andi Mack featuring actor Stoney Westmoreland are unavailable following his arrest for sexual assault. All episodes featuring the actor are still available to stream on Disney+ in Japan.[7]
  • Five episodes of The Simpsons are unavailable to stream on Disney+:
    • "Stark Raving Dad", which features Michael Jackson, is unavailable on the service. The show's producers withdrew the episode from circulation following the release of the documentary film Leaving Neverland, which details allegations of child sexual assault against Jackson. This is despite the fact that the later episode "Mr. Lisa's Opus", which includes a reappearance from the character Jackson voiced (though obviously not voiced by Jackson this time), is available on the service and still airs in syndication, including on Freeform and FXX.
    • "Mayored to the Mob" is unavailable to stream on Disney+ in Singapore.
    • "Thirty Minutes over Tokyo" is unavailable on Disney+ in Japan, due in part of one scene depicting the then Emperor of Japan Akihito, and shown in a disrespectful manner. Other elements seen as disrespectful to Japan and its culture are contained in the episode.
    • "Goo Goo Gai Pan" is unavailable on Disney+ in Hong Kong, due to references to the 1989 Tiananmen Square massacre and a scene depicting former Chinese Communist dictator Mao Zedong.
    • "One Angry Lisa" is unavailable on Disney+ in Hong Kong due to the line "Behold the wonders of China. Bitcoin mines, forced labor camps where children make smartphones."
  • Some Disney theatrical cartoon shorts of the 1920s-1960s, as well as some episodes of both Tron: Uprising TV series and The Wonderful World of Disney are not available.
  • "Whale of a Tale", the first episode of The Little Mermaid TV series, is inexplicably missing.
  • The Disney Channel series Wizards of Waverly Place had some scenes of minor cleavage blurred.
  • Some live-action films, including Greyfriars Bobby and The Computer Wore Tennis Shoes, do not have their Buena Vista logos.
  • The 1963 live-action film Sammy, the Way-Out Seal was heavily edited to 42 minutes with obvious fade-ins and fade-outs.
  • The 1967 live-action film The Adventures of Bullwhip Griffin is edited to remove racial slurs.
  • The 1967 live-action film The Happiest Millionaire features intermission music followed by the Buena Vista fanfare played over the title card before the start of the actual film.
  • 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 scene of a horse going number two before 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" used 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. The aforementioned word was changed to "Shooby-doowah". The episode was later delisted from the service owing to these offenses.
    • 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. The aforementioned word was changed to "Ooh ooh".
    • In the Season 2 episode "Escape", the word "axe" (from the original AUS airing) was changed to "pick".
    • The Season 2 episode "Dad Baby" is banned from the service over its premise of pregnancy.
  • The 1989 Pixar short "Knick Knack" uses the edits from the 2003 theatrical re-release which digitally-edited two brief instances of suggestively inappropriate content to make it more fitting for children in today’s standards.
  • 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. This was to prevent the film from receiving an R rating.
  • Spider-Man and his Amazing Friends omitted one episode from the service, featuring Nazi imagery and Nazi agent Red Skull. Additionally, the series' third episode features a warning about racially insensitive content regarding stereotypes of Asians.
  • In 2021, films, such as Peter Pan, The Aristocats, Dumbo, Lady and the Tramp, The Jungle Book, Aladdin (and its sequels), and the live-action Swiss Family Robinson, were removed from kids' Disney+ profiles due to negative depictions of people and cultures. Said films are still viewable on regular Disney+ profiles, with the enhanced content advisory warnings.
    • Strangely, Pocahontas was kept in the children's profiles and wasn't given the 10-second description in spite of containing the regarded themes.
  • The 1946 compilation film Make Mine Music is the only Disney Animated Canon movie not available on the service due to regarding themes including sexualized imagery in "All the Cats Join In" and intense gunplay violence in "The Martins and the Coys". However, there is a petition requesting the streaming service to add this film (whether it is the cut version or the uncut version).
  • Song of the South is unavailable on the service; the full film has never been released on home video or digitally in the U.S. It has also been withdrawn from all media. This also applies to Victory Through Air Power, which has been banned from all media (with the exception of the Walt Disney Treasures: On the Front Lines DVD set).
  • The FOX television series American Dad! and Family Guy on the Star hub of international versions of Disney+ and the Hulu hub of the US version of said streaming service were altered to remove profanities. Internationally, the Family Guy episode "Partial Terms of Endearment" is not available on the service, due to its controversial nature.
    • Despite this, and the show's controversial state in-general, oddly enough, some more of the most controversial episodes of Family Guy can still be streamed, such as "When You Wish Upon a Weinstein", which was originally delayed from its original release in 2000 as it was feared to have been viewed by audiences as anti-Semitic, and would take three to four years before it would've finally aired on television syndication after the episode was referred to have been 'banned' on home video, as well as the episode "420", which was controversial for its campaign statement that cannabis should be legalized, which resulted in the episode and the whole series being banned from syndication entirely from the Venezuelan government, and lastly, the episode "Extra Large Medium", which was controversial for parodying characters that stereotyped and made fun of former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin and her special needs son, or otherwise, portraying somebody with a disability in a cruel fashion. While the writers and Seth MacFarlane defended the episode, Joe Swanson's voice actor, Patrick Warburton did not, and instead sided with Sarah, stating in an interview that he agreed that the episode went too far and said "I know that you have to be an equal-opportunity offender, but there are some things that I just don't think are funny."[8]
  • Pepper Ann was never released on home video including VHS or DVD, but digitalized and part of Disney's One Saturday Morning.
  • Select episodes of The Muppet Show include content advisories warning of outdated cultural depictions and negative depictions of people and cultures.
    • Several episodes have been partially edited, usually cutting certain songs.
    • The Brooke Shields and Chris Langham episodes are unavailable in the U.S. and Europe (even though the Brooke Shields episode was released on VHS and DVD by Time-Life in the early 2000s).
    • The Spike Milligan and John Denver episodes are unavailable in Europe.
  • Two episodes of DuckTales are missing: "Sphinx for the Memories" and "Launchpad's Civil War". This is despite the fact that both episodes were released on VHS, Laserdisc, and DVD.
  • In some countries outside the United States, the 11th episode of Star vs. the Forces of Evil is not available. In Southern Asia, the episode "Just Friends" has the infamous same-gender kiss scene subdued.
  • The Shake It Up episode "Party It Up" was unavailable on the service due to containing eating disorder jokes. It was eventually restored on Disney+.
  • Sofia the First: Once Upon a Princess is still missing from the streaming service, despite the whole series being added as of October 2022.
  • The Disney Fairies TV specials The Pixie Hollow Games, Pixie Hollow Bake Off and all 47 Pixie Preview shorts are still inexplicably missing from the streaming service, despite that all six Tinker Bell films are available to view on the service.
  • Life-Size is inexplicably missing from the streaming service, despite that its sequel Life-Size 2 is included on the service.
  • The Buzz Lightyear spin-off TV series Buzz Lightyear of Star Command and its pilot movie Buzz Lightyear of Star Command: The Adventure Begins are still missing on the service for unknown reasons.
  • Both the Mickey Mouse short Magician Mickey and all three Roger Rabbit shorts are inexplicably removed from the service in March 2023.
  • As of December 2023, Mickey Saves Christmas still uses the original 21-minute version without the additional scenes.
  • Like on Paramount+, the Nickelodeon series Drake & Josh omits the following episodes on the Hulu hub of the US version of Disney+:
    • "Pilot"
    • "Dune Buggy"
    • "Guitar" (wasn't added due to licensing issues with material used in the episode, likely due to the Stratocaster name being trademarked by Fender)
    • "Blues Brothers" (wasn't added due to copyright reasons such as a clip from the 1980 film The Blues Brothers)
    • "Driver's License" (wasn't added due to licensing issues with material used in the episode)
    • "Number 1 Fan" (wasn't added due to licensing issues with material used in the episode, likely because of copyright for Drake's song)
    • "The Gary Grill"
    • "Drake & Josh Go Hollywood"
    • "Merry Christmas, Drake & Josh"
  • The Nickelodeon series Rugrats features the first season, but omits the remaining eight seasons on the Hulu hub of the US version of Disney+.
    • Additionally, unlike on Paramount+, the first episode "Tommy's First Birthday" omits the episode title card, due to being sourced from digital masters.
  • On the Hulu hub of the US version of Disney+, The Great North episode "For Whom the Smell Tolls Part One" has the instrumental audio from another episode (including the opening theme song (save for a few of that song's lyrics)) mixed in with the audio of that episode.

Unedited or restored content

  • The version of Clock Cleaners used on the service, despite using the Walt Disney Treasures restoration master, 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 still replaced with garbled squawking, as was the case when the cartoon was featured on most DVDs (except for Have a Laugh!: Volume 1).
  • The version of Melody Time fully restores Pecos Bill's cigarette in the Pecos Bill segment, after being removed from the Masterpiece Collection and Gold Collection VHS/DVD releases. Likewise, the scene relating how Pecos Bill fought a native tribal warband from the same segment is also kept uncensored.
  • Saludos Amigos fully restores Goofy's cigarette in the "El Gaucho Goofy" segment, which was removed from the 2000 Gold Classic Collection and the 2008 Classic Caballeros Collection DVD releases, but restored when the film was released as a bonus on the DVD release of Walt & El Grupo.
  • Bonkers retains the banned episodes "Fall Apart Bomb Squad" and "New Partners on the Block".
  • An Extremely Goofy Movie keeps the infamous flaming X scene which is often cut from American television airings.

  • The Timon & Pumbaa short episode Stand by Me restores its original titles and end credits from its theatrical release, but retains the same audio mix from the music video version.
  • Disney+ retains The Jungle Book 2 on the service, which in question remains unreleased after the third reissue was put in moratorium since 2017.
  • X-Men: Days of Future Past began streaming on Disney+ on July 10, 2020, with nudity, swearing, and trespassing intact.[9]
  • The Wolverine began streaming on Disney+ on September 4, 2020, with profanity and trespassing intact.
  • The Fault in Our Stars began streaming on Disney+ on September 25, 2020, with both sexual scenes, profanity, and trespassing intact.
  • Films, such as Big, Turner & Hooch, and Home Alone plus its second sequel retain all instances of profanity, trespassing, and some mature subject matter.
  • The Simpsons Movie retains all instances of profanity, trespassing, nudity, and other more mature content.
  • Arthur and the Minimoys restores all content that were originally cut for the US release, including sexual innuendo and flirting between Arthur and Selenia. Its cut version is no longer in marketing circulation due to the closure of The Weinstein Company after the arrest of Harvey Weinstein in 2018.[10]
  • All Marvel Netflix series retain all instances of mature content, but all Netflix references were removed.
  • With the notable exceptions of "The Three Little Pigs", "Clock Cleaners", and "Santa's Workshop", all the classic cartoons of the 1920s-1960s are generally presented on the service uncut and uncensored, albeit with enhanced content advisory warnings on some of them (e.g. "Beach Picnic", which had stereotypical Native Americans ants in it).
  • Unlike on Paramount+, the Nickelodeon series Drake & Josh restores the closing credits for the episode "Really Big Shrimp" on the Hulu hub of the US version of Disney+.


  • Aladdin and The Shnookums and Meat Funny Cartoon Show are currently the only shows from The Disney Afternoon that have yet to be made available for streaming on Disney+.
  • The New Adventures of Winnie the Pooh, Chip 'n Dale Rescue Rangers, Goof Troop, The Little Mermaid, and Timon & Pumbaa (each of which use the HD prints from the digital releases) have been cropped for a widescreen presentation.
    • Meanwhile, Super Robot Monkey Team Hyperforce Go! and Nickelodeon's Drake & Josh (Season 4 only) (the latter of which is presented on the Hulu hub in the US), which were both produced in widescreen, are cropped to a 4:3 aspect ratio.
    • The New Adventures of Winnie the Pooh, Chip 'n Dale Rescue Rangers, Goof Troop, and The Lion King's Timon and Pumbaa are also available on other VOD services (Google Play Video, Amazon Prime Video, iTunes, and Apple TV+) in remastered HD prints in original aspect ratio 4:3.
  • On the Hulu hub in the US, some films produced in 2.35:1 or 2.39:1, such as Hook and Paddington, are reformatted to the 1.78:1 aspect ratio.
  • Miraculous: Tales of Ladybug & Cat Noir (some Season 4 episodes only) and Pepper Ann are presented in the high-pitched PAL format.
  • Phil of the Future's episodes are in the airing order, and not in the chronological (production) order.
  • The Roger Rabbit short "Roller Coaster Rabbit" is only available as an extra on Who Framed Roger Rabbit. The other shorts "Tummy Trouble" and "Trail Mix-Up" are individually available on the service.
  • Only the first season of The Replacements is available while the second season has yet to be added to this service.
  • Canine Caddy, originally released as a Mickey Mouse cartoon, even though it was officially a Pluto cartoon, has the opening and closing titles replace Mickey's head and name with Pluto's. Oddly, the music used in the opening is replaced by the post-1947 Pluto opening theme.
  • Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, certain films which were originally slated as theatrical premieres were instead launched on Disney+ or are slated to launch on Disney+. These include Artemis Fowl and The One and Only Ivan. Onward was released theatrically, but made available on Disney+ two weeks after its theatrical premiere due to closures because of the pandemic. Frozen II was also made available on the service far earlier than originally planned. The live-action version of Mulan has been announced as first film released under Premier Access on the service beginning on September 4, 2020 where the service is available, due to the continued closure of theaters in many markets (but banned from theaters). Soul was the first Pixar film to skip theaters due to the pandemic, followed by Luca and Turning Red.
  • All the Mickey Mouse Clubhouse specials are split into two episodes, with one of the characters providing a recap of the first part at the beginning of the second part.
  • All the Phineas and Ferb specials have been divided into two episodes, despite still being aired in their original hour-length forms on Disney XD. In addition, Phineas and Ferb: Mission Marvel and Phineas and Ferb: Star Wars are also available in their original combined release as separate titles.
  • Some TV shows, such as Doc McStuffins, Sofia the First, Liv and Maddie, and Big City Greens, have selected episodes listed out of release date order. In addition, Bluey also has selected episodes in their US air date order rather than their original Australian air date order.
    • Unlike on Paramount+, the Nickelodeon series The Thundermans has all episodes listed in the correct air date order on the Hulu hub of the US version of Disney+.
  • Deep Blue is currently the only Miramax film whose rights have been retained by Disney to stream on Disney+, despite Disney selling off the Miramax library in 2010.

  • Even though the credits are for the original 1990 dub, the German-language version of The Little Mermaid is actually the infamous redub from when it was re-released theatrically in Germany (and the rest of Europe) in 1998, which many have decried as the worst German dub of a Disney movie ever, with questionable translations and casting choices (the one exception being Beate Hasenau, who voiced Ursula in both dubs). In German television, The Little Mermaid was aired last time on Disney Channel in Germany, Switzerland, and Austria in 2021, but this Disney animated movie from 1989 will be returned to Disney Channel in German-language countries on August 25, 2023.

  • Starting on December 6, 2023, a beta version of Hulu became available to Disney bundle subscribers with a full version launching on March 27, 2024 for such subscribers, giving access to available content, including additional titles from 20th Century Studios, ABC, FX, Freeform, etc. as well as titles from other Hollywood and Burbank, California based studios, networks and channels within their media companies, such as Warner Bros., Universal, Sony Pictures, Lionsgate, Paramount, Nickelodeon, Cartoon Network, CBS, NBC, etc.
