Why isn’t Live Action Cinderella on Disney+?
Disney+ has been home to many of Disney’s beloved classic films, including a few live-action remakes of their classic animations. But one live-action remake remains missing – Cinderella. Here are some possible explanations for why this film wasn’t added to the streaming service.
Rights were sold to Netflix
The rights to the 2015 version of Cinderella were sold to Netflix in 2019. This means that Disney wouldn’t be able to make it available on Disney+ for a certain period of time.
Another possible explanation is that Disney might have been unable to add the film to Disney+ due to requirements from the film’s distributor. Distributors usually have certain agreements in place with streaming services which prevent the movie from being available on other services.
Not a priority for Disney
Finally, it could also be that the film is simply not a priority for Disney. Although the film was successful at the box office, it was still far from the hit that some of Disney’s other live-action remakes were. Disney may simply be focusing on the more popular films first, leaving the lesser-known ones out.
Cinderella’s live-action remake is not currently available on Disney+, but there could be a few potential explanations as to why, such as the rights being sold to Netflix, restrictions from distributors, or a lack of priority from Disney. Unfortunately, at the moment it looks like fans of the film will have to stick with Netflix to watch it.
