Disney’s CEO Says More Big Budget Movies Could Be Released Straight To Disney Plus
Disney’s outgoing CEO, Bob Iger, has revealed that more big budget movies could be coming to their streaming service, Disney Plus thanks to Coronavirus.
It’s been a very strange time of late due to the Coronavirus pandemic.
So many movies have been pushed back and a lot of them have been Disney films.
We’ve already seen the whole of Marvel’s Phase 4 get pushed back including the likes of Black Widow and The Eternals.
Mulan and The New Mutants have also been pushed back and Onward was released on-demand very early indeed.
It seems as if more big budget movies might be coming to their new streaming platform pretty soon according to Bob Iger.
Big budget movies could be coming to Disney Plus
Here’s what Bob Iger told Barrons during a recent interview:
There are some we’ve decided to put on Disney Plus. We already announced one, Artemis Fowl, that would have been released in theatres. Others we’ve simply delayed. In some cases we’ve moved things onto Disney Plus faster than we would have… In terms of movies going ahead after Artemis, there may be a few that we end up putting directly onto Disney Plus, but for the most part a lot of the big tent-pole Disney films, we’ll simply wait for slots. In some cases we’ve announced new ones already, but later on in the calendar.
It sounds like Iger might be thinking the likes of The New Mutants could come to their streaming service in the not-so-distant future.
