It’s Friday and that means its time for some new additions to Disney+. With today seeing Pixar’s Coco added to Disney+ in the US and Canada, making it one of the first big additions to the Disney+ back catalog since the streaming platform launched.
Coco has been available on Netflix for the past 18 months, but was removed today. This is the first Disney film to be removed from Netflix since Disney+ launched.
It should also be worth noting that Coco has been available in other regions such as the Netherlands and Australia. This is due to different licensing issues.
