As expected, much of the Disney Investor Day‘s focus would be on Disney+, the studio’s exclusive streaming platform that his home to all things Disney, Pixar, Star Wars, and Marvel Studios. So it comes as no surprise that many of the executives, including Bob Chepek, Disney’s CEO, would be making some major announcements.
During the early portions of the conference, the studio revealed that they would be releasing approximately 10 series for each of their brands including Marvel Studios and Star Wars. Additionally, they would be releasing 15 Disney live-action, Disney Animation and Pixar series directly on Disney+
Again, Disney Plus was always going to be so much more than the existing library, and “The Mandalorian” can’t be the only original content for the streaming service. So seeing that number isn’t a surprise. Sure, its a big one, especially since it will be across the board. But Disney fans are thirsting for more original content, and it looks like the studio will be delivering just that.
Of course, we already know some of titles for these series including “WandaVision,” “Falcon and The Winter Soldier,” “Loki,” “Hawkeye,” “She-Hulk,” “Moon Knight,” “Nick Fury” and “Ms. Marvel.” Then there is also Star Wars’s “The Bad Batch” animated series, and the highly anticipated untitled Obi-Wan series starring Ewan McGregor, and the “Rogue One” prequel. Those are just a few examples of what to expect in the coming years.
It should be interesting to see what kind of originals from Disney Animation, Disney Live-Action, and Pixar will be coming to the streaming service. We’ve seen a couple of shorts, and a few charming live-action films like “Star Girl” and “Godmothered.”
But more imporantly, if you want to watch how the MCU expands, or go to a galaxy far, far away, or see some of the best animation in the world, then you might want to think about getting a Disney+ account.
