Disney Plus costs

Disney is about to launch Disney+, it’s high-profile streaming service loaded with tons of movies from their past as well as several original titles. It’s all part of the House of Mouse’s plan to finally embrace the world of streaming while also taking on Netflix. Is the gamble going to pay off? All signs point to yes. There’s enough nostalgia built-in for Disney titles of the past, and interest in new original Star Wars and Marvel shows to draw a crowd. But a new profile details that putting all of this together ended up costing Disney and arm and a leg.

disney+ titles

Rather than release a standard press release listing all their titles, Disney+ is taking the long way around and running a seemingly never-ending thread full of everything you’ll be able to watch when the service launches next month. A bunch of the titles will be familiar to movie fans – Disney classics, from the so-called Disney Renaissance and beyond. But there are also several titles that just seem…well, fake. You can’t help but wonder if the poor unlucky social media employee tweeting all these out is slipping a few intentionally fictional movies and TV shows into the list just to see if anyone will notice.

The world is often a cold, dark, angry place, especially these days. So we could all do with a bit of positivity now and then, and maybe we’ll get it in the form of Marvel’s Hero Project.

Mulan Trailer

Disney’s remake of Aladdin just recently crossed the $900 million mark at the worldwide box office, making it only the sixth live-action Disney film to cross that major milestone. So there’s no better time to keep the hype train going than by teasing the next remake of one of their beloved animated classics.

Mulan is based on the 1998 feature animated action adventure inspired by one of China’s most popular folktales. The film follows a young woman who masquerades as a man to take her father’s place in the Imperial Army, and now that story is getting the live-action reboot treatment. However, don’t expect the musical part of the original movie to make a comeback this time.

lady and the tramp remake song

When you hear the title Lady and the Tramp, two things likely come to mind. One is the famous scene where the two dogs share some back-alley spaghetti. The other is “The Siamese Cat Song.” While dogs eating pasta is still perfectly acceptable (in small doses – don’t let your dogs get overweight!), the “Siamese Cat Song” has not aged so well. In fact, it’s quite problematic, to say the least.

Disney is about to unleash a new live-action Lady and the Tramp remake for Disney+, and if you were wondering if the “Siamese Cat Song” would make it into the new film, we now have the answer. Janelle Monae is “reinventing” the song, which means it’ll probably be completely different, and far less offensive.

Disney Killing Fox Films

While some film fans were ecstatic over the prospect of Disney buying Fox, others cautioned that this move could end up being bad for movies. Sadly, it looks as if that latter concern is turning out to be true. A new report reveals that Disney is in the midst of culling, and killing, several Fox titles. Even movies that are still moving ahead are getting a detailed reappraisal from the House of Mouse. Whatever your feelings here, you have to ask yourself: is destroying potentially good movies off just so the Disney Marvel heroes can party with the Fox Marvel heroes ultimately worth it?
