Most months, Netflix doesn’t lose too many of its great films or TV shows, just a few of random Adam Sandler flicks, a couple of documentaries, but not much else.

Unfortunately for UK subscribers, May 2016 is not one of those months (it is much better across the pond in the US).

Firstly, it should be noted that on the 30 April, Netflix is losing two classics: Quentin Tarantino’s Pulp Fiction and Tom Cruise’s War of the Worlds.

However, it is on the 2 May when the real spring clean is set to happen, with 76 titles expiring, most of which are Disney films.

To name just a few (in alphabetical order), we’re losing The Aristocats, Bedknobs and Broomsticks, Brave, Flubber, Frozen, Monsters University, The Muppets, Pinocchio, Ratatouille, Toy Story (1,2, and 3), Treasure Planet and Up.

With so many Disney films leaving the service, it wouldn’t be a surprise if the company start pushing their own streaming service, DisneyLife, in the next few months.

To make up for the loss, Netflix is adding the likes of Bloodline, Marseille and Cartel Land.
