Streaming is determined to launch a lot of content from all its brands!
Disney + plans to release over 100 titles a year from now on. Streaming has seen a significant increase in customer numbers since its debut in late 2019 and now has 100 million subscribers.
At the Walt Disney Company Annual General Meeting of Shareholders, Bob Chapek, CEO of the company, revealed that due to the platform’s success, Disney is even more motivated to increase its content. He said in an official statement:
“The enormous success of Disney +, which has already exceeded 100 million subscribers, has prompted us to be even more ambitious and to significantly increase our investments in the development of high quality content. In fact, we’ve set a goal of over 100 new titles per year, and that includes Disney Animation, Disney Live-Action, Marvel, Star Wars, and National Geographic. Our direct consumption business is the company’s top priority, and our strong catalog of content will continue to fuel its growth. “
In just 16 months, Disney + launched some very successful original products, such as The Mandalorian, Hamilton, and WandaVision. But the path to Disney in the streaming market is virtually untapped and we should see the company increasingly competing with giants like Netflix and Prime Video.
Next week, Marvel Studios’ new venture Hawk and the Winter Soldier will debut on Disney +, following in the footsteps of WandaVision.
