Disney ready to 'hit the ground running' with Fox deal closing 'soon'

Disney ready to 'hit the ground running' with Fox deal closing 'soon'

If it's going to take on the might of Netflix, Disney knows that its upcoming video streaming service is going to need a pretty strong content offering - and according to people in the know, Disney is throwing everything it has got at the new platform.

The Disney Vault will be no more when the company releases its streaming service.

Currently, each of the 34 animated films that currently reside in the vault are released to the public every 10 years.

"At some point fairly soon after launch, it will house the entire Disney motion picture library", Iger said.

In the past, Disney has sparingly re-released new films before putting them back in "the vault".

The “vault”, which Iger is referring to, has been used to limit availability of classic movies. With the launch of Disney+, the “Disney Vault” will essentially dissolve. We're thinking about all the wonderful television shows Disney has produced over the years.

Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige has previously reiterated that Marvel's planning for the Fox-controlled X-Men and Fantastic Four film rights won't commence until after the buyout is complete, so it's unclear which aspects of Disney's larger entertainment apparatus have begun working on what's coming after the purchase.

Iger also confirmed that newer Disney movie releases will make their way to Disney+ within a year of being released in cinemas, so you can quickly catch up with the adventures of Captain Marvel and friends.

According to Disney CEO Bob Iger via Polygon, the company's Disney+ streaming service will offer the full Disney catalog, meaning there's nothing left that can be sealed away in the vault.
