Disney Movie Club is Officially Closing This Year, Sony to Takeover Physical Media Production

The Disney Movie Club, originally established in 2001 to sell VHS and DVD movies directly to consumers, is set to permanently shut down. The closure is part of Sony’s takeover of Disney’s physical media production, which includes the production and distribution of DVDs and Blu-rays. Sony will handle the entire process, from authoring the discs to physical distribution, starting later this year.

The Disney Movie Club, known for enticing offers like “five movies for a dollar,” has been a subscription service providing exclusive discs to its members. Fans have been informed of the closure, and they have until May 20, 2024, to make their final purchases. The announcement coincides with users noticing pop-up notices about the club’s imminent closure when logging into the Disney Movie Club website.


While the specific details about which movies Sony will distribute are not confirmed, it is anticipated that Disney’s extensive catalog, often kept in the “vault,” may be gradually phased out of the physical media space. Disney’s unique approach to physical media, including exclusive releases and limited availability, has set it apart in the industry.

With Sony taking over the production and distribution of Disney’s physical media, the landscape of physical media for Disney content is likely to change, impacting the availability and accessibility of Disney movies on DVDs and Blu-rays.
