Yes, major news for those of us that have only previously purchased MCU movies in 1080p on iTunes.
The Disney+ service will be available on a wide range of mobile and connected devices, including gaming consoles, streaming media players and smart TVs, and will adjust to the best possible high-definition viewing experience based on a subscriber’s available bandwidth, with support for up to 4K HDR video playback. An unprecedented amount of content will also be available to fans for offline viewing.
Disney buying Fox meant that they also had The Simpsons. Well if like me you’re a fan (up until season 13 at least) the good news is you’ll be able to stream them on Disney+.
Disney+ announced that all 30 seasons of The Simpsons will be available on the service on day one.
In short it’s vague, I’ve asked for a roadmap but doubt I’ll get it. The service itself seems great but might be a while before we get it here in the UK. My best guess is we will need to wait at least an additional year.
It’s disappointing not to get it on day one given I’m a massive Star Wars and Marvel fan but not much I can do on that one except wait. I’ll update the post once I get some info.
Following its U.S debut, Disney+ will rapidly expand globally, with plans to be in nearly all major regions of the world within the next two years.
Since Disney picked some of Fox along with it came a raft of Marvel characters such as Deadpool and the X-Men. As a bit of an X-Men fan it got me thinking about the state of the existing film series and whether they could get a reboot.
Let’s be honest there hasn’t been a good one since the second movie. The possibility of seeing them done justice and a possible tie into Infinity War Part 2 sounds great to me.
There is such a diverse set of characters in the X-Men universe that they could be the next launch pad for a series of movies. Personally I’d be ok with Capt and Iron Man taking a break to focus on Spider-Man, an X-Men solo film and a couple of independent character ones (Nightcrawler or Gambit anyone?).
Personally I think that we’ll see a new X-Men movie announced within the next 2 years.
