With the start of a brand new month, this results in some titles in the United States being removed from Disney+ due to contracts made before Disney purchased 20th Century Fox. And unfortunately, the 20th Century Studios family film, “Like Mike” has been removed from Disney+ in the United States and is now available to stream on Starz.

The film tells the story of Calvin and his friends, who all live in an orphanage, and find old shoes with the faded letters MJ connected to a powerline. One stormy night, they go to get the shoes when Calvin and the shoes are struck by lightning. Calvin now has unbelievable basketball powers and has the chance to play for the NBA.

It’s unknown how “Like Mike” will be available on Starz, but it will return once it has completed its contract. This isn’t uncommon for films to be removed from Disney+, and this has been happening since it launched in 2019.

Unlike other streaming services, Disney+ does not inform subscribers in advance if a title is going to be removed.

The good news is that the sequel, “Like Mike 2,” is still available on the platform in the US. Internationally, all of the “Like Mike” films are still available to stream on Disney+.
