Disney stands to save money by deleting some properties because they won’t be required to continue making residual payments or paying licensing costs. Disney may also take into account eliminating some content in order to reach licensing agreements with other businesses like Netflix, HBO, etc., and so generate additional income.

Disney’s decision to delete content follows a previous move by Warner Bros. Discovery, managed by David Zaslav, which similarly removed a number of movies from HBO Max. The shows on this list featured Raised by Wolves, The Gordita Chronicles, The Time Traveler’s Wife, The Nevers, Generation, FBoy Island, and Westworld, among others.
