Disney Plus steals ‘Once Upon A Time’ from Netflix

The long-running TV series on ABC, ‘Once Upon A Time’ will soon be coming to Disney Plus on 18th September, 2020. All 7 seasons are going to be available on the platform. Until now, the series was being streamed on Netflix but will not be a part of it anymore from 6th September, 2020. Disney Plus will also be releasing new seasons of ‘Ever After: A Cinderella Story’, ‘Bend It Like Beckham’, ‘Coop and Cami’, ‘Wicked Tuna’ and ‘Marvel Super Hero Adventures’ in the coming month of September. They are also going to release a few movies for the viewers. Some of them are ‘Never Been Kissed’, ‘The Wolverine’ and ‘Strange Magic’.

Why did Disney Plus take the show from Netflix?

Disney Plus was eventually going to take the series as the show features many Disney characters. It portrays many characters like Snow White, Rapunzel, The Evil Queen, Elsa. There are some other characters also such as Jiminy Cricket, Pinocchio, Robin Hood, Alice, and Jafar that have featured in different seasons. The story is adapted from some of the characters of ‘Fairy Tales’. Disney Plus is appraised as a streaming platform that is children friendly. A lot of movies and series are available on the platform without age discretion. But, on the other hand, Netflix is not a platform where there is any kind of age discretion. As a result, the series is more likely to be streamed on Disney Plus than Netflix.

The series was a great hit initially. Within the first two seasons, it amassed a viewership of approximately 10 million. But, as it progressed, the viewer count started reducing. Even then, Netflix released around 7 seasons consisting of a total of 155 episodes. The series was highly appreciated. It was even nominated for 7 Creative Arts Emmy Awards. It never won though as its competitor was ‘Game of Thrones’, one of the most popular and watched shows. Eddy Kitsis and Adam Horowitz are the creators of the American drama series. Fans are very much excited after this announcement. They will be able to binge ‘Once Upon A Time’ on Disney Plus from 18th September, 2020. You can have a look at the trailer of Season 7 for the show below.
