Bryan Cranston Reacts to Disney+ Removing His Movie

The actor has commented on Disney’s recent decision to withdraw more than 60 titles, including Bryan Cranston’s The One and Only Ivan from Disney+ on May 26.

A Disney spokesperson is quoted by Deadline as stating The titles that will be removed from Hulu and Disney+ the next week are still being finalized. This signals that changes to what remains on Disney+ and what is removed may continue over the next few days.

Cranston expressed his sense of pride in the movie, thinking back on its debut at the beginning of the COVID lockdown. He urged viewers to check out his work and learn more about the real-life incidents that provided the idea for the film.

I heard the news that my film, The One And Only Ivan is being pulled from Disney+ as early as next week. I was very proud of this sweet, family movie that was released after the COVID Lockdown began. And I urge you to gather your kids, or nieces & nephews, make some popcorn, and watch this engaging and delightful story that was based on real events!

The real life guy that I play actually adopted a baby gorilla (Ivan) and raised him in a Washington state suburb. A crazy true story!! Thanks to Disney for giving us the opportunity to make this movie in the first place. I just know that it will make for really great family time but you have to do it this weekend before it disappears forever. I promise, you ll be glad you saw it. Have a great weekend Bryan.

The One and Only Ivan is an outstanding story about the value of a person’s home, the beauty of friendship, and the efficacy of visualizing. The movie is based on Katherine Applegate’s book, which was released in 2013 and won multiple honors, including the Newbery Medal. It is an outstanding blend of live-action and CGI.

Thea Sharrock is the director of The One and Only Ivan, which is produced by Angelina Jolie, Brigham Taylor, and the late Allison Shearmur, p.g.a., and was adapted from a screenplay by Mike White based on a novel by Katherine Applegate. Executive producers include Thea Sharrock and Sue Baden-Powell.

Ivan, a 400-pound silverback gorilla, lives in a mall in the suburbs with Stella the elephant, Bob the dog, and other animals. Though he has little recollection of the jungle where he was abducted, the arrival of Ruby, a young elephant, moves him deeply. Ruby just became separated from her family in the wild, which makes him reflect on his life, his origins, and his ultimate goals.

Disney will save money by deleting some properties because they won’t be required to continue paying licensing and residual payments. Disney may potentially think about eliminating some content in order to strike licensing deals with other businesses like Netflix, HBO, and so forth, generating additional cash.
