One Of Tom Hanks’ Best Movies Removed From Disney Plus


It’s been revealed that one of Tom Hanks’ very best movies ever (according to us) has been removed from Disney Plus, and we’re upset about it.

What’s the movie, I hear you all asking? The film in question is 1988’s Big, which is one of my favourite movies of all time.

I used to watch the movie all the time as a kid and I was actually recently thinking of rewatching it on Disney Plus.

Well, I can’t do that anymore because the movie is no longer on there.

Well, actually, I’ll let you in on a little secret – I can still watch it because it’s still available on Disney Plus in Europe.

The movie has been removed from Disney Plus in the United States, so everyone reading this article who’s in the US won’t be able to watch Big on the streaming platform.

It’s interesting to think that back in 1988, Hollywood wasn’t really convinced by Tom Hanks.

He was known as something of a comedic actor, and films like Big were the reason why people thought that.

Hanks was also in movies such as Splash, Turner & Hooch and Bachelor Party.

These movies were all comedies of sorts, but things really changed for Hanks after Big.

He ended up winning the Golden Globe for Best Actor in the Musical or Comedy category for his performance in Big.

He was also nominated for his first ever Academy Award of his career.

Big was the film that really allowed Hanks to show off his full range as a leading man.
