Disney Reveals Plans for New Streaming Service
One of the hottest issues in the animation industry right now concerns Disney’s plans for expansion, which has recently increased in speed and included the somewhat shocking buy-out of Fox’s properties. Part of this issue is Disney’s plans to launch a new streaming service, which has been addressed in a recent report by Deadline.
According to the report, Disney is planning to launch this new streaming platform in fall 2019 in the United States, with an international rollout to follow. No price has been set for the service yet, but the content strategy has been outlined – Disney’s streaming service will not carry any adult content. Their library of adult content will instead be offered through Hulu, which Disney will own a 60% stake of after the Fox deal.
Fans of Netflix’s Marvel shows will have nothing to worry about, as it is said that the current slate of Marvel live-action programs will be remaining in their respective homes. So you’ll still be able to watch Daredevil, Iron Fist, Jessica Jones, Luke Cage, The Punisher, and the Defenders. Although it has not been made clear as to whether Netflix will still be able to produce new seasons of the shows. Aside from their library of content, Disney also plans to launch around four to five original movies and five TV series per year.
