Unfortunately, with the start of a new month, due to existing contracts made prior to the Walt Disney Company purchasing 20th Century Fox, a small selection of titles are removed from Disney+ in the United States to head to other streaming platforms.

And today, the 20th Century Studios film, “The Big Year”, was removed from Disney+ in the United States and is now available on Hulu.  However, it’s still available on Disney+ in other countries.

The film is about three fanatical bird-watchers spend an entire year competing to spot the highest number of species as El Nino sends an extraordinary variety of rare breeds flying up into the U.S., but they quickly discover that there are more important things than coming out on top of the competition.

Unfortunately, we don’t know when “The Big Year” will return to Disney+ in the US, like many other films over the past couple of years have done already.

Unlike other streaming services like Netflix or Hulu, Disney+ doesn’t advertise in advance when a title is being removed.

What do you think of “The Big Year” being removed from Disney+?
