What’s Been Taken Off of Netflix in 2021?

By: Smera Arun

Netflix is home to many popular shows and movies that have been viewed by
millions all over the world. We’ve grown to love these films, but unfortunately, a lot of
them have been taken off of the viewing platform such as Secret Life of Pets, Spy Kids,
and Kung Fu Panda.

The Secret Life of Pets 2, dubbed “most popular movie”, is about a Jack Russell
Terrier named Max, who meets a farm dog named Rooster in the countryside. They both
attempt to overcome Rooster’s fears, while Gidget, a pomeranian, tries to rescue Max’s
favorite toy from a house full of felines, and Snowball, a bunny who likes to pretend that
he’s a superhero, sets on a mission to free a white tiger named Hu from being abused at
the circus. The three storylines added complexity and made for a very heartfelt theme.
The movie grew rapidly and was eventually released to Netflix on December 27th, 2021.
This movie was so popular that a new ride has been added in Universal Studios,
Hollywood which contains animatronic figures, and takes a journey through the
apartment complex that Max lives in. Despite the large expansion of Secret Life of Pets
2, it was recently taken off of Netflix during July of this year. (Add quote here)

Yet another movie was taken off of Netflix in September of this year, Kung Fu
Panda. Both the first and second movies were taken off of Netflix, upsetting many fans
of the franchise. The well-known movie was about Po, a clumsy panda who lives in the
Valley of Peace, but always dreamed of being a Kung Fu legend. When a heinous snow
leopard, Tai Lung, threatens Po’s homeland, Po is chosen to fulfill a prophecy and defend
the valley. It was first released to the streaming platform on July 1, 2021, and has
unfortunately been taken off of Netflix as of September. Kung Fu Panda was unique
because of how massive of a film production it was. Twentieth Century Fox, Paramount
Pictures and Dreamworks Animation were all contributors to this beloved movie.

One show being taken off Netflix is Haikyu!, an anime about Shoyo Hinata, a boy
determined to become a talented volleyball player despite his small stature. This show
was first released to Netflix on November 1st, 2019, and was taken off exactly 2 years
later, on November 1, 2021. The most unique fact about this anime is its sound effects,
and how wholesome it was in its entirety.

Glee was another show taken off of Netflix in November 2021, a mere 2 years
after it was first released. It was about a group of misfits who try to escape the difficult
reality of high school by joining a glee club. The club is headed by Matthew Morrison, a
Spanish teacher who is passionate about bringing up the spirits in the failing club. The
most unique thing about this show is its beautifully diverse cast.

Spy Kids: All the Time in the World is yet another movie being taken off of the
popular streaming platform. This film was about the battle between the villainous                                                 Timekeeper who is trying to stop time in the world, and a retired spy, Marissa who jumps
back into action when she hears about the chaos. She teams up with former spy kids,
Rebecca and Cecil, to save the earth. This movie was first released on Netflix on May 20,
2021, exciting many fans of the amazing franchise. The original Spy
