The Disney+ streaming service will have every Disney movie ever made
🎶 Hi ho, hi ho, it’s off to the Vault we go… 🎶
Okay, the Disney+ streaming service just got interesting. In today’s investor meeting, Disney’s CEO Bob Iger said that when the service launches it will contain “the entire Disney motion picture library.” Just let that sink in for a minute. Every. Single. Disney. Movie.
That means the most beloved movies of all, the famed “Disney Vault” collection, will be available to watch at any time. That’s huge news, as currently Disney just bring that short list of classics out every seven years, like some mystical release schedule from the land of fairy tales.
Which, if you think about it, it kinda is. The company’s reasoning wasn’t to create a scarcity of DVD releases, but rather that every seven years another group of two-to-seven year-olds would become of age, the perfect time to introduce them to the movies that have shaped so many generations of childhoods before.
That list of Vaulted movies includes:
This also means that everything Disney has created since the 1920s will be online for binge watching at your leisure. Iger also reiterated Disney’s commitment to creating more original content, with both movies and television shows coming to the streaming service.
That new content includes a live-action Star Wars series called The Mandalorian, Captain Marvel, and any other new Disney owned shows. Any newly released movies will be on the service within a year of their theatrical release. That’s a big change from the tightly-gated way Disney has run things with DVDs and VHS in the past.
Guess it’s time to get our Mouse on later this year.
