Disney announced some amazing news for those of you interested in the upcoming Disney Plus Streaming Service. Disney CEO Bob Iger announced at yesterday’s annual shareholder’s meeting that the new service will include the entire library of motion pictures.
This news might have been buried a bit under the excitement of the Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge announcement yesterday but this new is giant. This announcement will be the end to the “vault” system for Disney classics. Since the days of VHS, Disney has always followed a system of only releasing classic titles for a short time. After the limited time was up they were put back into the “vault”. Of course you can always find these titles on the secondary market such as ebay or Amazon but you might have to pay a premium to get them.
“The service, which I mentioned earlier is going to launch later in the year, is going to combine what we call library product, movies, and television, with a lot of original product as well, movies and television. And at some point fairly soon after launch it will house the entire Disney motion picture library, so the movies that you speak of that traditionally have been kept in a ‘vault’ and brought out basically every few years will be on the service,” Bob Iger, 2019 Annual Shareholders Meeting
This is really big news for Disney fans. We still do not have an official launch date for the upcoming streaming service but will keep you informed when any news is announced.
