The classic 20th Century Studios film, “Edward Scissorhands” has been removed from Disney+ in the United States over the weekend, continuing the long-running trend of movies being removed due to contracts made before Disney purchased 20th Century Fox.

Once upon a time, a kindly inventor created a charming young man named Edward. But the inventor died before he finished Edward, who had sharp metal shears for hands. Edward was sad and alone until a kind Avon lady invited him to live with her family in the fantastical land of Suburbia. This film was directed by Tim Burton and starred Johnny Depp and Winona Ryder.

The film was originally added to Disney+ in the US in December 2021 and lasted around 15 months before being removed, which ties in with other titles from 20th Century Studios.  Once the contract has expired, the film will likely return to Disney+, as many other 20th Century Studios titles have done.

“Edward Scissorhands” is available to stream now on Direct TV and the Roku channel in the United States.  The film is still available to stream on Disney+ around the world, as the existing contract only applies to the US.
