Disney’s Bob Iger says there’s potential for even more movies to debut on #DisneyPlus early. “In terms of movies going ahead after Artemis [Fowl], there may be a few more that we end up putting directly onto Disney+, but for the most part a lot of the big tentpole Disney films, we’ll simply wait for slots.” Which Disney movies would you like to see hit the streaming service early?
One such movie that could land on the Disney streaming service:
According to multiple inside sources, Disney is seriously considering dropping The New Mutants on Disney+, possibly by this summer. Please note that, as of this reporting, no final decision has been made yet. Obviously, the situation with the global pandemic has made it difficult to nail down any theatrical release plans or alternatives. But Disney has weighed their options regarding The New Mutants and they seem to be in agreement this is the best path for that particular movie going forward. It has a modest budget that so they won’t actually being leaving money on the table, and it’s presence on Disney+ could give the channel a much-needed jolt.
Disney+ might have all the Star Wars, Disney, and Marvel movies but one thing they don’t have: new content. Streaming services like Netflix, Apple TV, and even the new Quibi is enticing a young tech-savvy viewing audience craving new content. Content the house of mouse is failing to crank out fast enough. Other films that could land on the streaming service are the live-action “Mulan” and the animated “Soul.”
