Unfortunately, at the beginning of each month, Disney is forced to remove some titles from Disney+ in the United States due to pre-existing streaming contracts, that were made before the Walt Disney Company purchased 20th Century Fox.
One of the films that has been temporarily removed from Disney+ is the Blue Sky Studios animated hit “Ice Age: Dawn Of The Dinosaurs”. It is, however, still available on Disney+ in other countries.
Eventually, the film will be returned to Disney+, but it might be a while until it does so, as it’ll have to go to another streaming service due to previous contracts made before Disney+ existed.
What’s more frustrating is that “Ice Age: Dawn Of The Dinosaurs” was only added to Disney+ in the United States in May, so has only been available on the streaming service for a limited period.
The film sees times changing for Manny the moody mammoth, Sid the motor mouthed sloth and Diego the crafty saber-toothed tiger. Life heats up for our heroes when they meet some new and none-too-friendly neighbors – the mighty dinosaurs.
Unlike other streaming services like Netflix or Hulu, Disney+ doesn’t inform subscribers of upcoming removals.
