Disney+ USA Metadata Errors

Last Updated: September 2, 2022: They fixed two long running release date issues. Still tons to go… let’s pick it up, guys. 2 every 2 months? Just do them in one day!

Update Log:

  • August 31, 2022: 1 new error found.
  • July 25, 2022: Many new errors found.
  • July 9, 2022: Thankfully, the most recent error is already fixed.
  • July 2, 2022: 1 new error. Sigh. They’re quickly replenishing the errors. 8 fixed, 3 new ones all in one week! Newest error? Marvel Legends episodes have generic descriptions.
  • June 30, 2022: 1 error fixed! Sadly we were informed of 2 new errors so it is still a step back. New errors involve The Kid Who Would Be King and Club Mickey Mouse (Malaysia)
  • June 28-29: SEVEN errors fixed. WHOA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! This is unreal. Some were VERY long-term (I.e. 2019). Still a lot to go. Many of what are left are very simple. Let’s say this, if they could do 7 today they could easily do most of the remaining in one day. Will they make us wait another year for their annual fixes?

Please submit feedback to help.disneyplus.com and let them know you want to see this stuff fixed. If you’ve done it before, do it again. Do it weekly, monthly. Whatever it takes. Metadata errors should not persist for years.


Errors Since Launch (November 12, 2019)

  1. The word (Series) is appended to 6 series including Iron Man, 101 Dalmatians, The Muppets, Guardians of the Galaxy, and Fantastic Four. It used to be on about 20 so they made progress but then sadly stopped about 2 years ago. They need to finish cleaning up.

2. Marvel Studios should not be a prefix on the MCU titles. Other services and TV Guide data show the titles without the Marvel Studios prefix sometimes. This includes Starz, Netflix, and Prime Video. Further proof the title is incorrect is that the new titles added like Black Widow, WandaVision, Loki, Falcon and the Winter Soldier, Shang-Chi, Moon Knight, Hawkeye and What If? do not have the weird brand prefix. Not only that, but the brand prefix makes the search results unreadable on mobile app. (UPDATE June 2022: THEY ARE FINALLY REMOVING THEM! Here is a list of titles with the prefix remaining:

  • Iron Man 1
  • Thor Ragnarok
  • Captain America Civil War
  • Guardians of the Galaxy Vol 2
  • The Avengers
  • The Avengers: Age of Ultron
  • The Avengers: Infinity War
  • The Avengers: Endgame
  • Captain Marvel
  • Doctor Strange
  • Ant-Man
  • Ant-Man and the Wasp
  • Black Panther

3. Disneynature should not be a prefix on 12 of the Disneynature titles. Other services have listed these films in the past without the Disneynature prefix including Prime Video, Netflix, Starz, and even Hulu. Disney also has official marketing without the prefix and their official listing for the title on Disney.com calls it “Monkey Kingdom.”

Further proof the title is incorrect is that the 2 Disneynature titles added for Earth Day 2020 all arrived sans the prefix – Dolphin Reef and Elephant. We expect Polar Bear to be added without the prefix as well. Update: We were right. And the 2022 Earth Day Disneynature release Bear Witness also did not include the prefix. Starz recently streamed “Disneynature Bears” as just Bears.

4. Guardians of the Galaxy: Date span is 2015-2019, not 2015-2018.

5. Sharpay’s Fabulous Adventure and Tangled: Before Ever After are missing from the DCOMS collection. Tangled is the 102nd DCOM between The Swap and Descendants 2. Sharpay’s goes between Lemonade Mouth and Phineas and Ferb The Movie. It’s imperative since this film was featured in the 100th DCOM celebration and retroactively removing it makes Adventures in the Babysitting no longer the 100th DCOM…!

TANFLED: BEFORE EVER AFTER is missing in between DESCENDANTS 2 and THE SWAP

despite both of them being part of the 100 DCOM celebration. Removing them retroactively from the canon would shift the DCOM numberings in a bad way!

Error Since November 17, 2020

6. LEGO Star Wars: Holiday Special is missing the : between LEGO Star Wars and the rest of the title. All other LEGO titles use colons so it’s only right to be consistent. This even is true on Netflix and other services with other LEGO titles.

Errors Since April 2, 2021

7. A Faithful Wookiee is listed as 2021. It cannot be. It is vintage. You even mention 1978 in the long description! Don’t give me the excuse that the short as a stand-alone first released in 2021.

A Faithful Wookiee has the wrong release date.
A Faithful Wookiee has the wrong release date.

8. Alita Battle Angel released in 2019, not 2018.

Please fix this for us, and Alita fans like Alita_Warrior_99. This is not that complicated.

9. “Star Wars Vintage” is not appropriate to add to SWV collection title names. It’s actually a violation of archive ethics to alter title of existing works if they haven’t undergone changes.

Error Since October 1, 2021

10. LEGO Star Wars: Terrifying Tales is missing the : between LEGO Star Wars and the rest of the title. All other LEGO titles use colons so it’s only right to be consistent. This even is true on Netflix and other services with other LEGO titles.

Error Since November 12, 2021

11. Intertwined is victimized by their DISNEY prefix bug. As a result this brand new series is inaccurately referred to across the internet as “Disney Intertwined” which sounds completely stupid.

Error Since January 21, 2022

12. The Marvel One-Shots are missing from the Infinity Saga collection.

Error Since June 1, 2022

13. Club Mickey Mouse has 6 thumbnails that are wrong. They have swapped 3 sets of episodes.

First 5 episodes on Hotstar

First 5 episodes on Disney+

As you can see, 3 of those 5 are wrong. They’re swapped with 3 later in the season.

Error Since June 22, 2022

14. Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness is not listed under the Wanda and Vision collection, despite Wanda being the villain and a lead.

Error Since July 5, 2022

15. LEGO STAR WARS: SUMMER VACATION is missing the colon… just like the previous 2 LEGO STAR WARS specials.

Error Since July 22, 2022

16. Deadpool 1-2 are missing from the X-Men Collection.

No Deadpool?

Error Since August 10, 2022

17. The Orville is bizarrely named “Orville.”


Fixed Errors

  1. May 4th, 2022: Life Below Zero Season 18 numbers are off by 1. Episode 1 is “missing,” but it’s not… (Fixed late May 2022)
  2. October 15th, 2021: Lost Cities with Albert Lin: Megacity of the Maya Warrior King is incorrectly listed as “Megacity of the Maya Warriors.” The improper name also keeps the special from appearing alongside the rest of the franchise in search when people search “albert lin” or “lost cities.”(Fixed June 29, 2022)
  3. May 25th, 2022: Broken Karaoke Episode 6 features an incorrect thumbnail that goes to another episode. (Fixed June 2022)
  4. May 18th, 2022: Titles of episodes are not capitalized on Knights of Castelcorvo (Fixed June 2022)
  5. February 9, 2022: Disney Junior Alice’s Wonderland Bakery is not the name of this new show. It’s Alice’s Wonderland Bakery. (Fixed June 2022)
  6. Summer 2021: The Lion King has a subtitle: The Walt Disney Signature Collection. This was fixed summer 2020, but reverted 1 year later. The bios were also previously fixed but reverted. (Fixed June 2022)
  7. May 14th, 2021: Special Agent Oso: Three Healthy Steps episodes titles were mostly fixed June 15th 2021, but the team still has 6 titles with extras spaces between words (see episode 10 and 13 in the photo below). Episode 11 is also missing two words – it should be Twirl a Hoop-A-Loop (bolded words are missing). This should be fixed… please. You’ve now entered the title to fix it twice and still not fixed it all. (Recently they finally fixed the Disney Prefix and (Shorts) suffix in the name.) (Fixed June 2022)
  8. April 17th, 2020: Chip n Dale Nutty Tales is improperly titled. Hulu and DisneyNow (also owned by Disney) have it right. (Fixed June 2022)
  9. November 12th, 2019: MARVEL STUDIOS prefix should be part of the titles. (Fixed June 2022 for these titles: Iron Man 2, Iron Man 3, Thor, Thor: The Dark World, Captain America: The First Avenger, Captain America: Winter Soldier, Guardians of the Galaxy Volume 1
  10. May 21, 2021: Fury Files is missing #9-14… except it’s NOT. All episodes are present. This is unprofessional looking. Fix it, please. Stop making it look like things are missing when they aren’t. It bothers new fans! I’ve never seen misnumbering on other services. (Fixed June 2022)
  11. July 1, 2022: Marvel Legends episodes 18-20 don’t have descriptions. They also didn’t have titles but those were added before we could post this.
  12. February 4, 2022: Torn released in 2021, NOT 2022… (Fixed August 2022)
  13. April 16, 2021: The Kid Who Would Be King released in 2019, not 2018. Weird that in April they released 2 recent Fox films, both early 2019 releases, but listed them as 2018. (Fixed August 2022)

NEVAR FORGET
