The news of these removals comes following the announcement that Disney+ would clear out content as a cost-cutting measure, with a renewed focus on profitability.

"We are in the process of reviewing the content on our DTC services to align with the strategic changes in our approach to content curation," CFO Christine McCarthy revealed during a Disney earnings call last week (via Deadline).

"As a result, we will be removing certain content from our streaming platforms."
