Alternative platform with films for adults planned


from Matthias Brückle
Disney now owns mountains of classic films that have nothing to do with Star Wars, Marvel and Mickey Mouse. The harmless ones are also available on Disney +, but some titles do not fit the family-friendly image of the streaming platform. In the future, such films should end up on a specially designed streaming service.

The Disney + range is large, but thematically and in terms of content are rather limited. Because the streaming platform relies on only offering content that is also suitable for children and families. So the Mandalorian does. But don't die hard. That's a shame, because since the big Disney-Fox deal at the latest, many popular films have become part of the Disney repertoire, for example films like Deadpool, Alien or Fight Club. However, this gap should not last long – those responsible at Disney want to launch a platform that focuses precisely on those films and series that cannot find a place on Disney +.

Fancy Disney +? It's in Disney's streaming service!

The new platform is called Star and is planned for 2021

Compared to the US Securities and Exchange Commission, Disney confirms that another international streaming service is planned, which could probably be called "Star". So far, many Disney-owned films have landed on Hulu, the streaming service that is now owned by Disney. With a new central platform, however, one could reach more viewers, especially internationally. The whole thing is even planned for the calendar year 2021. (via mediafilm)

What could land on the new platform?

The content of Star should be composed of content from ABC, FX, Freeform, Searchlight and 20th Century Fox. Accordingly, we could expect series like Archer, Fargo, Grey's Anatomy, Sons of Anarchy, but also Oscar films like Slumdog Millionaire, Shape of Water or 12 Years A Slave on the same platform.

Until then, you can still see many of these films on other platforms, such as Logan and Die Hard on Netflix.
