Rumor: Disney+ Has an Expiration Date on Some of Their Titles


File this under rumor because there could be some explanations for it, but some Disney+ subscribers have discovered that some of the launch day titles have expiration dates.  Most of us wouldn’t notice as it’s hidden in the metadata.

Stitch Kingdom posted this on Twitter


Some are even set to expire this year?


Now some immediately pointed out that this could be because of other scheduled changes to art or other aspects, or simply place holders



Now we do know that some films will leave for awhile because of agreements with Netflix, but Disney has indicated in the past that the content there would be there. It would be a bad look to take it away. But we did wonder how this would affect DVD/Blu-Ray/digital sales as they vault content to boost sales later.

Hopefully the commentors are right and it’s just directions to change the section or display. I don’t read metadata so i honestly don’t know what it is saying, but some of you might. Even if it was true, I’m sure Disney already backpedaled and fixed it as it was caught and put out by the media. Just in case you might want to watch Princess and the Frog in the next week.

What do you think? Comment and let us know!

Disney has been a big part of my life for years--from family trips to WDW to growing up on Disney classics, TV, and movies. Prior to Pirates and Princesses I successfully ran social media and websites since 2010. I've also been a public speaker and presenter since 2007. I'm the co-host for the YouTube channel Clownfish TV as well as the podcast/ Youtube Pirates and Princesses (PNP) channel. Former contributor, online personality and acting social media manager at The Kingdom Insider (which we built from the ground up and ran from 1997-2019 --Thom didn't quit FYI) Pirates and Princesses was started by my husband and I several years ago. We loved Disney and wanted to honestly cover all aspects from pop-culture to the parks from a consumer focused stance. Living OUR happily ever after getting to do what we love with our two kids! Creating fun content and building new things. Certified art teacher, and mom. Opinions are all mine.
