UPDATE: “Howard,” the 2020 documentary about songwriter and Disney Legend Howard Ashman, is no longer set for removal from Disney+. A representative for Disney told Deadline that the list will be re-evaluated and there could be more changes.

Previously, Disney announced they will be pulling some content off Disney+ and Hulu going forward. Now a list is out, which includes plenty of original series and films created specifically for these platforms, and will all be unavailable by the month’s end.

Willow canceled amid mixed reviews and careful planning for future streaming offerings.
