Disney Plus has so many cool titles that you'll want to watch them all. In the meantime, you may be stuck with a full list of Continue Watching of movies you may not want to watch right now or which you started playing just to see what they were about. Let's see what we can do about removing these titles from your Continue Watching list.
With a growing list of titles that you have to go back to, you may want to prune that list a bit.
Unfortunately, you won't be able to remove titles from "Continue Watching" just by pressing an "x" somewhere. That would have been entirely too easy, but it's a feature that you can't really find on any streaming services.
However, you can still get rid of the items on your list that you do not want.
We know that many people have issues with this, but the method absolutely works. When you want to remove a movie, move the playback line as close to the end of the video as possible. If the video goes small, click on it and follow the progression - allow it to go to the very end of the line before exiting. Once you find your way back to the main page, hit refresh as it will otherwise keep showing you the movie.
When it comes to removing a series, you have to go to the very last season and episode there's available. If you mistakenly started streaming The Simpsons for instance, you'll need to go to Season 31, episode 22 (the latest one available in January 2021). Play the video, move the playback line to the very end and wait for it to end. Do not hurry through this.
It's not the most elegant trick in the book, but it's something that will help you out until there's a better way to do this. Netflix recently introduced a way to eliminate titles from their Continue Watching list from the mobile app, so maybe Disney will follow next.
