There are a few original series’ premiering on Disney Plus
Disney has multiple Marvel television shows in the works that will be exclusive to this platform. From a series about Loki starring Tom Hiddleston to Wandavision to The Falcon and The Winter Soldier, fans are excited for the upcoming adventures exclusive to Disney’s streaming platform.
For fans of Walt Disney World and the Disney theme parks, there will be a series detailing the animals of Animal Kingdom Park in Walt Disney World. Pixar fans can watch a spin-off series in the Monsters Inc. universe, entitled Monsters At Work. Additionally, nature titles from National Geographic will be available on Disney Plus. During an interview with Barrons, Disney CEO Bob Iger explained that the company isn’t looking to premiere blockbuster movies on this platform.
“Almost every movie the studio makes is a $100 million-plus movie, and we’re not looking to make movies at that level for the service,” Iger said. “We’re looking to invest significantly in television series on a per-episode business, and we’re looking to make movies that are higher budget, but nothing like that.”
“We wouldn’t make a Star Wars movie for this platform,” Iger continued. “When everybody goes out on the weekend, and you have a movie that opens up to $200 million, there’s a buzz that creates that enhances value. We like that. And eventually, the movies we’re making are going to [end up on] the service.”
