Disney+ Deletes Simpsons Episode With Michael Jackson

Disney’s new Streaming Service has announced that they are deleting the episode of The Simpsons where Michael Jackson voiced a character.

Controversy

Disney+ just launched after their Beta period in The Netherlands. And is now available in North America and New Zealand aswel as The Netherlands.
With the launch of Disney+ came 30 years of Simpons episodes. However one in particular is a controversial one.
One of the episodes has Michael Jackson as a voiced character. After the Documentary “Leaving Neverland” they have decided that it wasn’t fit for Disney+.

Different times, different views

However this is not the first time Disney has been seen as controversial. For example in the movie Dumbo there are crows who are voiced by white actors, however they have a black accent.
People have been looking at Disney as the racist one because of these views. But people tend to forget that these movies started out decades ago and now times has changed.
To battle the problem Disney has a warning with the movies that are seen as controversial. In this way Disney wants to warn people for insensitive content.

Disney+ Simpsons

For many it was a surprise that Disney+ would feature the Simpsons. However a lot of people will see this as a big reason to consider Disney+ as their new streaming service.
This is a great move on Disney’s part to include a fandom this big. However this isn’t the only huge step, Avatar, the gigantic franchise from FOX is currently on Disney+.
When other FOX titles will be presented depends on all the deals with other streamingservices that are in effect right now.
It would be amazing to see the X-men movies and Deadpool movies on Disney+, aswel as the other great franchises previously owned by FOX.

Honest Disney+ Review

Disney+ ¬†was just released in The Netherlands yesterday and I got to test it out in all it’s glory. So now it is time to review this beta test!

Disney+ is the new streaming service of Disney+ that has to be the competitor of Netflix and HBO. For years we have been waiting for this streaming service and now it is finally here in The Netherlands. So let’s do a Disney+ Review!

Performance

I am really impressed by the performance of the application. I have experience no lag at all and setting it up was easy as well. Finding the app was a bit harder though. Because it isn’t world release yet I couldn’t find it in the app store. So with some help from other bloggers I finally found a link. When the app is up and running it runs as good as Netflix would, and for a first release that is very impressive.

Hardware problems

Although I haven’t had any big hardware problems on my phone, browser or even Xbox One. I did have some problems with my Chromebook. It wouldn’t play any movie or show and would be in an infinite loop. Also my onboard mouse didn’t work with scrolling trough the recommended lists, which makes it a bit harder to get what you want. You can still search of course, however it would be a lot easier if it would just work. This will have to be a point reduction for this Disney+ Review.

Full Library

Disney was not kidding when they announced that they would put their full library of Disney movies on their streaming service. Their whole Disney movies library is on it, including Marvel and Star Wars. Pixar is represented as well with all the movies and shorts. If that isn’t enough for you then you should also know that the full National Geographic library is on there as well. This is a major plus for this Disney+ Review.

Countless hours of content

Needless to say you will be able to watch countless hours of Disney magic while you probably should doing other things. However having this library for just 7 dollars a month or 70 dollars a year is a steal. I’m happy to pay the price that they offer and I will be keeping it for alsong as Disney will keep this streaming service going. No more need of a closet full of Disney movies, we have it all online now and we can watch it anywhere we want to.

Up to 10 devices

You can register up to 10 devices to your account, which means you could let 10 other people watch on your account. This might sound like a ripoff, until you realise that Netflix asks double the fee for the same thing. It is not known if browsers are also counted as a device, however it doesn’t seem to be that way.

Conclusion of this Disney+ Review

Disney+ is the streaming service I’ve been looking for ever since I had a Netflix account. I think a lot of people have been waiting anxiously to be able to “own” a Disney library at this size and now we have it. Or atleast The Netherlands has it in this testing period. I think we can expect great things from Disney’s streaming service and I think Disney is very excited about it too.
