"We believe Netflix can not win" such a war because of Disney's cost advantage from owning a vast amount of content. "These will be major storylines set in the MCU with ramifications that will be felt both through the other Disney+ series we'll be producing and the future on the big screen". Disney+ will feature an arsenal of kid-friendly programming, including 13 classic animated movies, 21 Pixar features, original series, and material from its Marvel and Star Wars franchises.
Details about Disney+ were shared by executives at an annual investor day, where chief executive Bob Iger said the streaming service would combine the strengths of Disney and the assets acquired from Fox. Let us know in the comments! "It is that simple".
Disney+ will combine offerings from powerhouse brands including Pixar, Marvel, and Star Wars with content from Hulu and sports network ESPN. It's unclear how Earth's Mightiest Heroes will bring back the Decimated, but time travel through the Quantum Realm is expected to play a large role in the movie, which could explain how Loki and Vision are able to come back from the dead. In case you don't believe me that this was his only response-posted alongside the new logo for the Falcon/Winter Soldier show, officially announced yesterday-here you go!
John Meyer, analyst at the investment firm Transpire Ventures, said Netflix still has the upper hand in the market.
Netflix has until now shown a clean pair of heels to all-comers, but is facing a much stiffer test as the Hollywood studios pull their content to boost their own planned rival streaming services.
More than 25 original series and 10 original films, documentaries and specials will be added to the streaming service throughout its first 12 months.
Netflix and Amazon spend billions of dollars on original content for their rival streaming television services, hoping to win viewer loyalty with must-watch films or shows.
The new service, which will launch in the fall, is being priced very aggressively. Diego Luna will also return as Cassian Andor from Rogue One in an as-yet-untitled series that will be available in the second year after launch.
"Captain Marvel" will be available at launch.
Also gearing up for streaming launches are: WarnerMedia, which owns studio Warner Bros (Lord of the Rings, The Lego Movie), HBO, and the rights to Netflix's biggest show, Friends; and Comcast's NBC Universal, owner of the U.S. version of The Office - another Netflix hit - as well as Jurassic World and Fast and Furious maker Universal.
