Disney could send more movies directly to Disney Plus due to COVID-19


Disney has announced new movie release dates for several of its films in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic, revamping films like Mulan and Black Widow to later dates. But with a few releases remaining in limbo or continuing to occupy optimistic dates, it’s possible that some upcoming movies will go straight to Disney’s streaming platform, Disney Plus. Now, in an interview with Barron’s, Disney’s executive chairman Bob Iger discussed the possibility of moving more movies to the first launch day on this platform.

“There are (movies) we decided to put on Disney Plus,” he says, referring to Artemis Fowl, which was originally slated for a movie release. “In some cases, we’ve moved things to Disney Plus faster than we could have done,” he said, citing Frozen 2 and Onward as examples.

Iger goes on to say that more films originally planned for a theatrical release may go directly to Disney Plus in the future. “As for the upcoming movies after Artemis, there may be a few more that we’ll end up putting straight to Disney Plus,” he says, “but for the most part, a lot of the great movies from Disney, we’ll just wait for the slots. “

What counts as a “big post movie” is not entirely clear, but it should be noted that the long-delayed X-Men spin-off The New Mutants has yet to land a new date. Pixar’s Soul, which is targeting a release on June 9, could also be a competitor depending on how the next two months will go and whether theaters can reopen.

In the meantime, if you are looking for something to watch at home, here is the Disney Plus program for April 2020.
