Disney’s streaming service only debuted two months ago, but its catalog has already grown slimmer.

According to angry subscribers who took to Twitter, Disney+ has lost the following 12 movies:

  • Home Alone 1 and 2
  • Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides
  • The Sandlot
  • Flicka
  • Dr. Dolittle
  • White Wilderness
  • Garfield: A Tail of Two Kitties
  • The Shaggy Dog (2006)
  • Mickey, Donald, Goofy: The Three Musketeers
  • Strange Magic
  • The Wonderful World of Disney: Magical Holiday Celebration

A spokesperson confirmed the loss with Gizmodo and reasoned that they had to be removed due to pre-existing legacy agreements.

These titles will return when their licenses expire, but that could take a while.

We’ve known that this would be the case for some time now. Back in October, a Disney+ spokesperson told Gizmodo that a “very, very small” number of titles would periodically leave the service if they had pre-existing legacy agreements for licensing in place prior to the service’s launch.
