Does anyone know why The Owl House is limited to the USA and UK only? I thought streaming was meant to get rid of these region restrictions.

With the Disney channel shutdown in many countries, there is no legal way to watch recent cartoon series, which will only lead to more piracy.

I think the possible reason could be due to cultural differences since some of the countries in which the show is unavailable are not LGBTQ+ friendly, given the fact that the show's characters Luz and Amity are among the notable LGBTQ+ characters in children's cartoons and also could be due to carriage disputes between Disney and digital TV providers over the service.

I thought that price hike was only for other countries. Ya know, since they're getting Star as an extra section for Disney+.
Anyhoo, while WDAS gets into producing animated series, it makes me wonder what's in store for Disney Television Animation.
I hope DTA is then mostly focused on making original non- movie franchised based things like they have been doing and not just axed by Disney. That'd be sad.

Well, think they said $8.99 American. Plus with STAR will be password protected. Not sure how this will work alongside Hulu. However, STAR will basically be dumping ground for all adult-oriented content from Disney and FOX. Alien, Predator, Die Hard, Pretty Woman, etc.

Hulu is continuing in the US, and Star is launching everywhere else. (Comcast still has an equity interest in Hulu, and Disney will wholly own Star.)

Here's the plot of the new Chip 'n Dale movie.
John Mulaney and Andy Samberg are the new Chip n’ Dale Rescue Rangers - Polygon

But if Chip 'n Dale are still traditionally animated living in a live-action CGI world, why can't they get MacNeille or Burton to reprise them? And what about Monty (Jim Cummings), Zipper and Gadget? And Nimnul?

And get this about Zootopia+.
I hope Nick and Judy will have episodes focused on them, too.

Well I be honest series, but if you going to do this plot, do it with Bonkers, it would fit better.

Heck if you replace this new human character with Marilyn, it could actually work.

Obviously you erase the Lucky promotion to FBI and moving to Washington, and the whole Miranda episodes, just erase from the canon. Never happened.

I don't want a Playstation 5 for all of the new "next gen" games coming, I just want a PS5 so I can just play my PS4 games without my PS4 console sounding like a rocket engine blasting off. (...So tired of seeing the PS5's sold out everywhere....)
Who remembers playing the iCarly game Pack-Rat (Pac-Man clone)on the Nick website? Those were great memories
Was "Mega Man: Fully Charged" ever dubbed in foreign languages?
