Man 10 dollars I would think hard about it but 29.99? Not a chance
I wouldn’t be mad at them upping the sub price by like 5-6 dollarsHonestly. If you have kids, not a bad proposition.
But yeah, patience will pay off in the end. Four or five months possibly.
I just watched UFC 251. It’s a month old and on ESPN+. A lot of options out there. No offense to Disney+ right now but Amazon and Netflix have content too. And COVID slowed the momentum and hype. No Marvel films in theaters. No Marvel TV content. No Disney animated content either.
if it means i can watch it an unlimited amount of times once paid for, then its not a bad deal
What do these motion picture companies do then? Lose out on major revenue for a whole year? I’m sure they had a plan, projections, etc.Disney is better off holding the movie for another year than going this route. The movie will be pirated beyond measure. This is the type of movie you float out into theaters now to allow people to slowly trickle back into the theater gatherings. You aren’t seeing a profit back from your $200+ mil movie either way but it sets the platform for the dozens of other Disney and Marvel films to come back to theaters strong and reinvigorate the blockbuster movie experience we were seeing in spades from Disney pre Covid. Instead you’ve set the precedent for killing movie theaters all together. This is gonna be bad...
Disney had 7-8 films last year that grossed over a billion dollars. One of them is the highest grossing film ever made. A year of revenue loss though far from the marketing ideal won’t kill them in the least especially when everyone is taking a loss. What Disney should do is stagger the release of films where movies can be seen slowly and look toward the future. They have control of Spider-Man, the Avengers and Star Wars. What is really a loss to them that isn’t going to be recouped in 1 fiscal quarter this time next year? Have the powers that be create more content that’s meant to be for D+ as opposed to forcing consumers hands. My co-pharmacist literally left for Disney world today ironically The world is slowly opening back up and people are eager to get back to a sense of normalcy. I would imagine movies are part of those recreational activity. Mulan could’ve waited and if the idea falls on its face which it has a good chance of doing with an additional price point of $30 on a $6-$12 a month streaming service, they’ll realize it could have waited as well. Either way the loss is happening but you’ll have at least reinvested into the status quo. This is uncharted waters we’re in now.What do these motion picture companies do then?

People are home. Streaming has to be the future.
Disney has to be hurting from theme park revenue and no motion pictures.
