What’s Leaving Netflix in January? It’s A ‘Nightmare’ for Disney Fans

As we look ahead to 2016, it’s time to start planning our New Year’s Resolutions. Netflix has recently announced the full list of titles that are leaving the streaming service this January, so this holiday season we’ve resolved to ignore our families completely and instead binge watch every Disney movie that’s being removed from Netflix.


The Disney classic follows Dumbo, a baby elephant born with oversized ears, who realizes his full potential with the help of a field mouse and some vaguely racist birds.

James and the Giant Peach

James and the Giant Peach follows a young orphan who travels to New York City in a giant peach, conveniently avoiding any sort of passport control. Tim Burton‘s adaptation of the Roald Dahl novel received an Academy Award nomination for Randy Newman‘s original score.


Disney’s take on early American history was criticized for its historical inaccuracy, but nonetheless won two Academy Awards for Best Original Score and Best Song (“Colors of the Wind”).

The Aristocats

Everybody wants to be a cat including Disney himself. The Aristocats was the last film that Walt Disney personally worked on before his death in 1966.

The Fox and the Hound

Disney’s timeless story of friendship between an orphaned fox and a young bloodhound is guaranteed to make you cry. The movie is notable because it featured the early work of future Disney stars like John Lasseter, Tim Burton, John Musker, Ron Clements, and Brad Bird, who would all play important roles in the Disney Renaissance in the 1980s and 1990s.

The Nightmare Before Christmas

Tim Burton’s follow up to Edward Scissorhands and the Batman films was his first foray in the musical world. Today, The Nightmare Before Christmas stands as both a classic Christmas and Halloween movie.
