Over the past few weeks, we’ve seen many films and shows removed from Disney+ around the world, and unfortunately, one of the titles removed is “Teen Spirit”, which was originally released on ABC Family in the US. The film is no longer available on Disney+ in many countries, including the United States, Canada and in the UK. The film is still currently available on Disney+ in some countries, including Australia.
In this film, Amber Pollock may be the queen bee of Eugene Ashley High School, but years of blind ambition and bad behavior come back to haunt her when a freak accident at Prom ends Amber’s life. In order to save her soul, Amber must pull off a high-school miracle and ensure that Lisa Sommers, the most unpopular girl in school, is named Prom Queen. Will a head-to-toe makeover and some confidence-building advice really be turn a shy and awkward teen into a high school social power player? Only Heaven knows!
Unlike most other removals in the United States, which are done either due to an existing contract with another company like Starz or HBO, or due to it being a limited release, like a holiday special, the reason for this removal is unknown. However, it could be down to Disney trying to reduce costs, such as in residual payments to cast/crew or server costs. Unfortunately, Disney doesn’t inform subscribers in advance of removals, which other streaming services do. So subscribers would be unaware of the embedding removal.
It’s currently unknown if “Teen Spirit” will be returned to Disney+, as it has recently been temporarily removed and readded. Hopefully, the film will be added back to Disney+ at some point.
