This Friday the past, Disney + released a new coming-of-age film called Stargirl – not to be confused with the upcoming series DC Universe with the same name – in addition to new episodes for several reality series scripted and sustainable, including those such as the diary of a President of the Future, Disney Family Sunday, Fairy Tale Wedding, Marvel heroes Project, One Day at Disney, Pixar in real Life, and Shop Class. But none of that is available in Hotstar – or Disney + Hotstar, depending on how it’s feeling – even a day later, despite all the Disney + The original released in India earlier this week on Wednesday.
It signals that Hotstar has stopped launching new weekly + Disney content in India. Gadget 360 has reached out to Hotstar for confirmation and comment at the time of the moratorium is expected to be lifted. After suddenly dropped everything on Wednesday, it is not clear why Hotstar has now decided to not push out new content, especially in the case of the seven series, which is already available in Hotstar.
