It’s the beginning of a brand new month and that, unfortunately, means that a small number of titles are removed from Disney+ in the United States due to contracts made before the Walt Disney Company purchased 20th Century Fox.
Today saw the removal of the 20th Century Studios film, “Mrs Doubtfire”, in addition to some other films including “Mr Poppers Penguins” and “The Sandlot”.
“Mrs Doubtfire” is still available on Disney+ in other countries including the UK, Canada and Australia.
Once “Mrs Doubtfire” has completed its contract, it will return to Disney+ in the US, though we don’t know how long that will be yet.
The film tells the story of divorced Daniel Hillard (Robin Williams), who is troubled that he has little access to his children and hatches an elaborate plan. With help from his creative brother Frank (Harvey Fierstein), he dresses as an older British woman and convinces his ex-wife, Miranda (Sally Field), to hire him as a nanny. “Mrs. Doubtfire” wins over the children and helps Daniel become a better parent — but when both Daniel and his nanny persona must meet different parties at the same restaurant, his secrets may be exposed.
