In Memoriam: Titles Leaving Netflix in May (Plus Titles Coming)

Leaving Netflix:

If you love something, set it free. The time has come yet again to let go of some of Netflix’s programming. However, this month we are in luck; the titles leaving are primarily Disney Channel Original Movies, which pains my inner 12-year-old but leaves my 21-year-old self happy that the majority of the titles leaving are movies I don’t watch anymore. Nonetheless, here is the list of titles leaving Netflix in May 2018, with some recommendations for which ones you should be sure to watch before they leave us.
