In 2021, Disney shut down Disney Junior in countries like Asia, Germany, and South Korea.

Likewise, in 2022, Disney shut down Disney Junior in Brazil and Taiwan.

Disney shuts down Disney Junior and Disney XD, Disney Channel, Radio Disney, Fox, and BabyTv in different parts of the world.

Is Disney Junior Shutting Down In 2024?

In recent years, Disney Channel has undergone big changes by shutting it down in various regions.

Due to this reason, Disney fans, especially kids, are sad about missing their favorite shows.

People wonder if Disney Junior has completely disappeared and is shutting down in 2024.

Thus, Disney Junior is shutting down in 2024 but only in specific regions and countries.

Disney plus
Disney is shutting down the Disney channel, Disney XD, and Disney Junior so that people can subscribe to Disney Plus.

Disney Junior is not available in Southeast Asian countries like Myanmar, Indonesia, Thailand, Vietnam, Indonesia, Malaysia, Philippines, Singapore etc.

However, the channel will still be available in other countries that Disney allows.

For instance, Disney Junior is still available in South Africa as of now in 2024.

Reasons Behind Disney Shutting Down Disney Junior

In 2021, Disney channel shutdown its channels completely from Southeast Asia to subscribe to Disney Plus.

However, the Asian countries in the Southeast heavily rely on TV channels and they cannot afford streaming.

On top of that in some countries like Bangladesh and Vietnam, there is no Disney Plus available.

Due to this reason, the number of viewers significantly decreased in many countries leading to low ratings in the Disney shows.

Hence, Disney decided to shut down completely in countries with fewer viewers and low ratings.

Low Rating And Less Viewers 

The main issue behind Disney getting low ratings and shutting down is Disney+ taking a long time to release new shows and episodes.

The delay makes the people impatient so many of them end up pirating shows for watching illegally to avoid spoilers.

As a result, when the show releases people do not watch it as they already watched it through pirating.

Hence, the show gets fewer viewers and low ratings in those countries which Disney misunderstands as a failure of the show.

For instance, right before a show called TGAMM ended, Disney Channel closed down in the Arab World and was replaced by CN.

Moreover, Disney is shutting down its channels and canceling shows in different countries due to fewer viewers and ratings.

The Bottom Line

Disney closed some channels, including Disney Junior in Southeast Asia in 2024 to focus more on their streaming service, Disney+.

However, this step by Disney is upsetting many fans about missing their favorite shows.

Instead of shutting down Disney Junior, Disney must focus on providing shows on time in different countries.
