Home Alone
New year, new me. Right? Some Disney+ subscribers were surprised to see a changeup this new year. People are reporting that some films are no longer available on the streaming service.

So far we’ve discovered that a few major films are no longer available on Disney+. Home Alone, Home Alone 2: Lost in New York, Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides, and The Sandlot are some of the films pulled from the digital library.

This comes as a surprise because Disney never mentioned their removal in advance. Many people were curious if Disney would ever vault some of the movies since it was never discussed. Subscribers started asking if more titles will be vaulted as new content is added to Disney+. Today, a Disney+ representative was quick to issue a statement in response to the outcry on social media. These shows were pulled due to some legal issues over legacy deals. They have to iron out the details, but it’s promised that these titles will return to Disney+ once those licenses expire.

Some new content was also recently added without any announcement. So far we know the 2007 movie Fantastic Four: Rise of the Silver Surfer has been quietly added. It would certainly help Disney fans if updates were given about changes in what’s available on the streaming service.

We will post updates if we learn of other shows that get vaulted.
