At the start of the month, due to previous contracts made by 20th Century Fox before it was purchased by Walt Disney, a handful of titles are removed from Disney+ in the United States each month.   Today, the 20th Century Studios animated film, “Thumbelina”, has been removed from Disney+ in the US.

This retelling of the Hans Christian Andersen classic fairy tale has the digit-sized heroine evading the clutches of various toads, moles, and beetles before she can proceed with her courtship with her dream lover, Prince Cornelius.

“Thumbelina” will be released on Starz on Friday, 13th January 2023, where it will stay temporarily until the contract expires,  and then return to Disney+.  We don’t yet have a date for the film to return to Disney+ in the US.

Unlike other streaming platforms like Netflix or Hulu, Disney+ doesn’t inform subscribers of removals ahead of time.   And the title is still available on Disney+ in other countries.
