Disney Investor Day: All the key announcements
With this event, we should get a clearer idea of Disney’s plan to adjust to the post-pandemic, plus whether it plans to release films originally intended for theaters on Disney+. And, as The New York Times recently claimed, we will likely hear about a major expansion of the Star Wars Universe. We suspect Marvel and Pixar news will also make the call.
Disney+ plans to integrate Star into the streaming service – but only outside the US.
This will see the addition of more adult content, including shows like Family Guy and films like Kingsman The Golden Circle. Star will only be available for subscribers outside the US, as Disney currently uses Hulu to deliver most of its adult content in the US.
Disney also announced expanded parental controls to ensure the streaming service stays appropriate for all ages.
