Details Released about Disney's Upcoming Streaming Service

Details Released about Disney's Upcoming Streaming Service

Marvel Studios, Lucasfilm, and much of 21st Century Fox's output now all resides in the house that Mickey built.

Disney's new streaming service is certainly ambitious, and it will be interesting to watch it all fall into place as it readies for its Fall 2019 debut.

Disney's new service doesn't have a set price point as of yet, but it's been said to be lower than Netflix's varying cost of between $7.99 and $13.99 United States dollars.

"They're trying to do this balancing act where they continue to profit from the legacy business model with ESPN and then try to create a streaming service as an incremental add-on", he told Cheddar in an interview Wednesday after the company reported earnings. Now, on the television side, 10 episodes are expected to cost from $25 million to $35 million, but Disney seems open to more expensive series, which could be in the $100 million range for a 10 episode season. The content itself will be Disney-branded, meaning that there will be no R-rated stuff. Let us know your thoughts down below!

Other movie projects, the report indicates, are still in the early planning stages-but Disney appears to have already singled them out as must-haves for launch day. But as for where that Fox TV and film fare might end up, he said that Hulu, in which Disney would now have a 60 percent controlling stake, "is a possibility". Likewise, don't be surprised if said material heads to Sky in the United Kingdom, that Disney is also set to pick up a large chunk of. The contractual situation there is likely too complex to extricate them. At that time, there wasn't specific information regarding the fate of Netflix's Marvel shows. No word yet on if they'll jump from Hulu to the new family-friendly service. This also means that Disney can keep doing things the way it has done with select titles and not overcomplicated things in an attempt to push their new site.

Deadline also notes that Disney has Don Quixote, Lady and the Tramp, The Paper Magician, Stargirl, Togo, Magic Camp, Noelle, 3 Men and a Baby, Sword and the Stone, and Timothy Failure projects in the pipeline.
