Disney+ Won’t Debut Star Wars Movies

Disney+ won’t debut new Star Wars movies, all movie content will have been previously released in theatres\cinemas. This is what Bog Iger said….

“Almost every movie the [Disney] studio makes is a $100 million-plus movie, and we’re not looking to make movies at that level for the service,” Disney CEO Bob Iger said in an interview with Barron’s, referring to Disney+. “We wouldn’t make a Star Wars movie for this platform.”

Iger also said he doesn’t know how much subscribing to the service will cost. “We haven’t even decided what we’re going to charge for it,” he said. Iger previously said that Disney’s streaming service will be priced below rival Netflix’s monthly rate, which is $11 a month for a standard plan in the US.

With so much Star Wars content coming this makes good sense to us. There’s a lot to look forward to — bring it on!
