Disney+ Could get New Titles Initially Scheduled For Theatrical Release

By Allyson Vannatta, Staff Writer

Disney hinted that more movies might make the jump to Disney+ without getting a theatrical release first, Deadline reports.

Walt Disney executive chairman Bob Iger said audiences could see more titles follow ARTEMIS FOWL with direct release on the streaming platform.

Iger said,

“In terms of movies going ahead after Artemis, there may be a few more that we end up putting directly onto Disney+, but for the most part a lot of the big tentpole Disney films, we’ll simply wait for slots. In some cases, we’ve announced new ones already, but later on in the calendar.”

Iger didn’t give away any titles that might make the jump. However, rumors have been swirling that F0x’s long-awaited NEW MUTANTS might be one of the titles the chairman was talking about.

Disney movies like BLACK WIDOW and MULAN were pulled from their release dates and given new ones, but NEW MUTANTS wasn’t given a new date.

As new titles could been seen soon on Disney+, Iger also commented on how some movies were put on the streaming service earlier than expected due to the coronavirus.

“In some cases we’ve moved things onto Disney+ faster than we would have. Frozen 2 was one of them, but Onward would be the biggest example. It was in theaters when this happened. We moved to a pay-per-view period for a couple of weeks where people could buy it and own it. And then we ended up putting it on Disney+.”
