Here in Denmark, we already had the first two seasons of the show you mentioned, but the third and final one was added fairly recently.Big Hero 6: The Series was recently added on Disney+ Nordic. That show was good and I finally get to see the show again!
Gnomeo & Juliet has been removed from Disney+ UK.
Over the weekend, Disney has removed the animated film, "Gnomeo and Juliet" from Disney+ in the United Kingdom, Ireland and Canada. In this creative twist on the classic Shakespeare tale, two young garden gnomes, Gnomeo and Juliet, try to avoid tragedy and find lasting happiness together when...whatsondisneyplus.com
Also, all seasons of Pepper Ann will be made available this January on D+ Italy, adding to the other ones
Well, the film was also distributed by third parties in Mexico/Latin America and most of Europe...but not many countries got the film (such as Japan).The only way round this is for Disney to buy the UK, Ireland and Canada distribution rights for that film from Entertainment One, but I guess Disney's not that interested. Disney+ has PJ Masks from eOne, so it wouldn't be that difficult to make a longer deal with them at least.
In fact, Disney+ is launching in 42 countries this Summer, and not just Turkey
A full list of countries where Disney+ will launch this Summer:
Albania, Algeria, Andorra, Bahrain, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Bulgaria, Croatia, Czech Republic, Egypt, Estonia, Greece, Hungary, Iraq, Israel, Jordan, Kosovo, Kuwait, Latvia, Lebanon, Libya, Liechtenstein, Lithuania, Malta, Montenegro, Morocco, North Macedonia, Oman, Palestine, Poland, Qatar, Romania, San Marino, Saudi Arabia, Serbia, Slovakia, Slovenia, South Africa, Tunisia, Turkey, United Arab Emirates, Vatican City and Yemen.
The streaming service will debut in new countries in Europe, the Middle East and Africa.www.hollywoodreporter.com
The list is odd, I would've thought that San Marino and Vatican City (the Pope watches Disney?) already has the Italian version, and Liechenstein has the Swiss version, and I thought Andorra already had it since it was available in both France and Spain. Malta is understandable as they never had the UK version of Disney Channel.
I guess it's one of those weird things where Disney+ first launched in the UK, and then The Isle of Man and the Channel Islands quickly followed, probably due to local laws being different because they have their own governments.
My theory on why Disney+ first launched in the Netherlands, was that they were going to use the country as a regulatory base, it's Disney's first time running a major SVOD service (and also in that country), and also to give them time to get some familiarity with Dutch media regulations before expanding elsewhere, also it's a sizable market for a soft-launch test run of the service.
Since Disney doesn't own the rights to the show, I don't think it can be on Disney+ unless Disney secures some sort of licensing agreement with ActionFliks Media Corporation, like they did with other companies in order to get Miraculous: Tales of Ladybug and Cat Noir and Dude, That's My Ghost! on the service. (Please note that Dude, That's My Ghost! is only available in European countries.) Even then, it likely won't be available on the service outside of the United States, because it only aired on Disney XD USA and not the other international Disney Channel or Disney XD feeds.Well, can be Xiaolin Chronicles added to Disney+, since it aired on Disney XD?
I'd be surprised if that happened.. I don't think Disney cares the slightestI hope that at least in Europe, they will add the shows and movies that aired on Fox Kids on Disney+ (the Saban Entertainment library to benmore specific), especially those made by SIP Animation in partnership with CinéGroupe (such as Princess Sissi, Wunschpunsch, Jim Button etc.)
