I never heard about them going in an "adult" direction. Unless you mean the themes of shows like Tangled: The Series and Andi Mack, but I doubt that determines their entire direction. Disney Channel's always had a few standout shows. Even during their "dark ages" they still had Phineas and Ferb and Good Luck Charlie. (Say what you want about the latter, but you gotta admit, it went in a different direction than the other sitcoms.) That doesn't mean they have to get rid of everything else.
