Disney+ Surveying Subscribers On Possibility Of Adding More “Mature” Content

in Disney, Entertainment, Television


Last month, not only did we report that Hilary Duff suggested the Lizzie McGuire reboot was not “family-friendly” enough for the Disney streaming service, but we also reported that the Love, Simon series (Love Victor), which was originally planned to air on Disney+, is now going to launch on Hulu.

Both the Love, Simon series and the Lizzie McGuire reboot were reportedly moved off of the Disney streaming service for “family-friendly” reasonings. Hilary Duff herself even spoke out on the matter in when she posted on Instagram saying “Was incredibly excited to launch ‘Lizzie’ on D+ and my passion remains! However, I feel a huge responsibility to honor the fans’ relationship with LIZZIE who, like me, grew up seeing themselves in her. I’d be doing a disservice to everyone by limiting the realities of a 30-year-old’s journey to live under the ceiling of a PG rating.”

Duff continued with “It’s important to me that just as her experience as a preteen/teenager navigating life were authentic, her next chapters are equally as real and relatable. It would be a dream if Disney let us move the show to Hulu if they were interested, and I could bring this beloved character to life again.”

This is interesting since there are now reports of Disney+ emailing current subscribers a survey relating to “more mature content.

One Disney+ subscriber went to the Disney+ Reddit page this past week and shared a very intriguing screenshot from an email received by the user. The survey was sent out by the streaming service and asked the subscriber how likely they would be to watch a television show on the list provided. There was a drop-down list of choices, which includes shows such as Buffy the Vampire Slayer, How I Met Your Mother, FireflyModern FamilyBlack-ish, and Malcolm in the Middle.

Although these television shows listed are not really “mature” content or intended for adults only, they are, however, a bit more geared towards an older crowd than a majority of the films and tv shows currently in the Disney+ library.

Subscribers can still watch the Disney Channel original series, Lizzie McGuire, on Disney+ and will be able to watch the Love, Simon (which will be titled Love Victor) TV series once it hits Hulu.
