Disney May Release More Movies on Disney+ Instead of in Theaters

Disney Plus

According to Disney executive chairman Bob Iger, there are other upcoming movies that could be released on Disney+ as well.

During a recent interview with Barron’s, he explained:

“There are some we’ve decided to put on Disney+. We already announced one, Artemis Fowl, that would have been released in theaters. Others we’ve simply delayed. In some cases we’ve moved things onto Disney+ faster than we would have. Frozen 2 was one of them, but Onward would be the biggest example. It was in theaters when this happened. We moved to a pay-per-view period for a couple of weeks where people could buy it and own it. And then we ended up putting it on Disney+.

“In terms of movies going ahead after Artemis, there may be a few more that we end up putting directly onto Disney+, but for the most part a lot of the big tentpole Disney films, we’ll simply wait for slots. In some cases we’ve announced new ones already, but later on in the calendar.”

There’s no information on what movies they are looking at, but we know that it won’t be MCU movies. There are a lot of movies that were given new theatrical release dates. However, there are a few movies that still don’t have release dates, and those movies include The New Mutants, Woman in the Window, Antlers, and The Personal History of David Copperfield.
