Disney+ Removes Adult-Focused Movies Added by Mistake

Not so fast, Hot Shots: Disney+ has pulled a pair of 20th Century Studios movies after apparently adding them to the platform by mistake. Just days after Hot Shots! and Hot Shots! Two hands unexpectedly became available to stream, the two 20th Century (formerly Fox) movies have disappeared from Disney+. (Tea Top Gun spoofs starring Charlie Sheen were not among the titles included on the streamer’s monthly listing of new additions to the Disney+ library for April 2022.) Also erroneously announced as coming soon in the US was Jet Li’s Kiss of the Dragon, an R-rated Fox action-thriller that will stream on Disney+ in Canada on April 29.

“You mean to tell me that HOT SHOTS movie was streaming on Disney+ in the past 4 days ago and then it was removed last night,” one subscriber tweeted at Disney+ after noticing the missing movies. “Can you restore FOX movies on Disney+ soon?”

Write another Disney+ user, “Wait… @disneyplus removed hot shots and Hot Shots: Part Two with @charliesheen? They have Daredevil and Punisher on there… makes absolutely no sense to me. What are parental controls for?”

In March, Disney+ implemented new parental controls when adding mature-rated Marvel Television series Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Luke Cage, iron fist, The Punisherand The Defenders. The platform prompted users to update their settings to access the TV-MA titles, which could be restricted to kid-proofed profiles locked by a PIN.

The accidental additions of Hot Shots! and Hot Shots! Two hands comes after users discovered censored blood and violence in an episode of the TV-14-rated Marvel Studios series The Falcon and the Winter Soldier. Disney+ quickly restored the original version of the episode after the more kid-friendly alternate cut was uploaded by mistake.

New additions to Disney+ this month include Herbie: Fully LoadedDisney+ Original movie Better Nate Than Never, Fox’s Chasing Mavericksanimation docuseries sketch bookand episodes of Marvel Studios’ Moon Knightwhich exhibits scenes of bloody violence.
