Disney to end 'vault' program ahead of Disney Plus' launch

Disney to end 'vault' program ahead of Disney Plus' launch

For example, Song Of The South, a film that has been regarded as racist since its release in 1946, has a few critics speaking out against Disney's "entire Vault" idea. "And then, of course, we're producing a number of original movies and original television shows as well that will be Disney-branded".

As exciting as it is to hear about new projects on Disney+ like The Mandalorian or the Lady and the Tramp remake, die-hard Disney fans like myself have been hoping to hear about how much of Disney's vast back catalog of films and television programs would be on the new streaming service. Basically, it's the name given to the company's policy of making individual films only available for a limited time period.

His family announced Thursday that the 74-year-old Hall of Famer has chose to retire from public life in wake of the diagnosis. His mark was surpassed in 2016 by Ken Griffey Jr. and this year by Mariano Rivera , the first unanimous selection.


Disney's upcoming streaming service is set to launch later this year and will include the company's entire movie library, Polygon reports. All of these movies will be available to Disney+ customers, which is going to make them almost as influential as Netflix, except overnight. It's also good news for fans looking to explore the more obscure live-action movies in Disney's history, which have occasionally been restricted to releases to members of the Disney Movie Club.

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. The company has confirmed that it is developing TV series based on Star Wars, Monsters Inc., High School Musical, and Marvel characters. So far, no release date for Disney's service has been announced, nor any pricing information.
