At the beginning of every new month, Disney+ is forced to take some selected titles off the streaming service due to contracts that were made before the Walt Disney Company purchased 20th Century Fox.

Today, the 20th Century Studios film, “Ever After: A Cinderella Story”, was removed from Disney+ in the United States and is now available on Starz.  This removal will only be temporary because the film will return to Disney+ once the existing contract expires.   However, we don’t know precisely how long it will be missing for. It could be months or even longer.

Unlike other streaming services like Netflix or Hulu, Disney doesn’t inform subscribers of any potential removals.


The film tells the story of a “modern” young woman of the 16th century, Danielle, as independent and wise as she is beautiful and kind. Against remarkable odds, she stands up to her scheming stepmother and works miracles on the lives of everyone around her, including the crown prince of France!

“Ever After: A Cinderella Story” has only been removed from Disney+ in the US. It’s still available on Disney+ in other countries.


What do you think of Disney removing “Ever After” from Disney+?

    I am cancelling my subscription because it’s pointless to have Disney Plus & pay for it just to lose access to your saved and favorite movies. I truly am at the point of despising the Disney plus app. It’s not consistent, it’s a joke really. All of my family members and friends will also be cancelling their subscriptions also. All for removing Ever After, Rio, Ice Age movies.

      That’s really not a good reason to cancel Disney+. Yes it’s a pain in the rear end for Disney to remove stuff from their streaming service without any damn warning, but they only remove a few movies and they don’t even do it every month. WarnerMedia removes a lot of their movies I like very often (not every month though, as there can be third-party movies I like removed or just nothing I care for) on HBO Max and I still keep it because I really like what it offers and there’s so many good films and shows to watch on there. Disney+ is not perfect by any means, but it’s one of only 3 services I actually like. (the other 2 being HBO Max and Netflix)

      As for the movies you mentioned Ever After: A Cinderella Story and Rio are gone for now, but every Ice Age film is on Disney+ except for Dawn of the Dinosaurs.

        Actually just to give you an update Ice Age: Dawn of the Dinosaurs is added to Disney+ bringing the complete Ice Age franchise under 1 streaming service, so yeah you should reconsider keeping Disney+ before deleting it Nunya
