What we learned during the Disney Investor Announcements and its a lot!

Okay so there’s a lot of information that has come out from the Disney Investor Day announcements today, I took notes while watching so there’s a good chance I might have missed some stuff so apologies! Let me say while it was cool to watch a lot of the “tease” videos weren’t broadcasted on the live stream which made it a little disappointing (I managed to find some online) but that didn’t stop the excitement of some of the upcoming content across Disney+, Lucasfilm, Marvel, Nat Geo and in the theatrical space. I will say this now there’s so much Disney+ related content that the streamer will be a force to deal with in the years to come and you can honestly see they are throwing insane amounts of money at it  – I was a bit disappointed with the lack of theatrical cinema announcements, most of it we already knew.

Disney+ has 86.8 million subscribers

Over the next few years, roughly 10 Marvel series, 10 Star Wars series, 15 Disney live action, Disney Animation, and Pixar series, plus 15 all-new Disney live action, Disney Animation, and Pixar features will be released directly on Disney+

Star & Star+ is launching outside of the US including Australia and will be integrated into Disney+ which will include 20th Century Studios content and FX TV plus original content and more. Star Launches Feb 23rd – Prices in Australia will stay the same for the first 6 months. (expect it to go up a few dollars after that) Star will have more mature ratings with new Parental Controls being released at the same time. This means we will see films like Logan on Disney+.
