With the start of a brand new month, due to contracts made before Disney purchased 20th Century Fox, a small number of titles are temporarily removed from Disney+ in the United States.
Unfortunately, the 1959 classic film, “Journey to the Center of the Earth”, has been removed from Disney+ in the United States and is now available on HBO Max.
The film follows a Scottish professor, Oliver Lindenbrook, who accidentally discovers a map of sorts with directions on how to reach the center of the Earth through an Icelandic crater. When the professor looks to his colleague Alec McEwen to verify his discovery, Alec turns on him and the two engage in a race to see who will reach the center of the Earth first.
Unlike other streaming services, Disney+ doesn’t inform subscribers of upcoming removals.
The film is still available on Disney+ in many other countries and the movie will return to Disney+ in the United States, once it has completed its contract with HBO Max, though no exact return date has been confirmed.
