Disney+ Will Offer Reboots Of 'Home Alone' And More Movie Classics
Disney has revealed more details for its upcoming streaming service. The media giant's new platform will actually offer an option including Hulu and ESPN+ when it launches in the fall.
Disney CEO Bob Iger has revealed some more detailed information about the company's new streaming service Disney+, which will launch in November. According to Deadline, Disney+ will not only offer all the Disney classics (as well as everything from the MCU and the Star Wars universe), but also some "reimaginings" of movies such as Home Alone, Night at the Museum and Cheaper by the Dozen.
Disney CEO Bob Iger: "We see long-term value in [...] IP acquired from FOX"
All the titles set to receive a reboot come from the vast library of FOX, which Disney eventually acquired in March:
"We’re [...] focused on leveraging Fox’s vast library of great titles to further enrich the content mix on our DTC platforms [Disney+ and Hulu]," Iger said, according to Deadline. "We see great long-term value in the broad collection of theatrical IP we acquired from Fox."
Disney+ will offer a bundle with Hulu and ESPN+
Iger also revealed that all customers will have the option to bundle subscriptions for ESPN+ and Hulu for 12.99 a month, as Deadline mentioned in another report.
Aside from offering all the beloved content from the several libraries, Disney+ will also offer brand-new TV shows like The Mandalorian by Lion King director Jon Favreau and The Winter Soldier, starring Marvel stars Anthony Mackie and Sebastian Stan.
