Disney takes over 40 shows and films off Disney+ as part of cost-cutting drive

Jeff Goldblum, Willow, Turner & Hooch and Y are amongst those to get the chop from Disney+, as the service starts to get streamlined.

It’s been a week or so since it was revealed that Disney was to remove some of its existing productions from its Disney+ streaming service, as part of its drive to save costs. Presumably taking the shows off the service saves on residuals to creatives for instance, amongst other costs.

Well, the cull has begun, and there are some high profile productions that are coming off the service. Its recent Willow TV show for instance, along with The World According To Jeff Goldblum, its shows based on Turner & Hooch and The Mighty Ducks, and films including the superb documentary Howard.

Deadline is keeping track of what’s disappearing, and further details that are gone include The One And Only Ivan, Magic Camp, Marvel’s Project Hero, Y and Big Shot.

Inevitably, Disney hasn’t released a statement explaining everything that’d been taken off the service, so it’s a bit of a guessing game. But it does confirm that it’s very much changing times at Disney+.
