A fair and proper decision? Or is Michael Moore simply sabre rattling? He's had these problems before with US companies failing to fund and/or distribute his work:
Fahrenheit 911 attacks the President's actions before and after the 11 September terror attacks and links Mr Bush with powerful families in Saudi Arabia, including that of Osama Bin Laden.
The film was due to be distributed by Miramax, a division of Disney.
But Disney "officially decided to prohibit" Miramax from distributing the film, the director said.
Moore, who won an Oscar for Bowling for Columbine in 2003, questioned whether in a "free and open society" Disney should be making such a decision.
Moore said Disney was "afraid of losing millions of tax breaks in penance for angering [state governor] Jeb Bush in Florida, where Disney have a lot of their investment".
"I have never seen a grosser example of what's wrong when just a few corporations own the media."
