Disney+ mostly streams movies and shows that are for kids and family, because of it’s Disney, duh! Disney’s focus to target the younger audience is strict and critical. After acquiring Marvel Entertainment and Lucasfilm, both Marvel Cinematic Universe and Star Wars Franchises did not release any content that is inappropriate to children. It’s like losing the freedom to no make dark movies.
