Disney have had a significant amount of success in a short amount of time. Many would ask why this is. It mainly comes down to Disney featuring nostalgic films, and television shows that many people have a connection to it.
During this pandemic, it hasn’t been possible for many production companies to produce new content, and if your platform relies on fresh, original content, you’re going to struggle. This is why Disney+ haven’t had this issue. They are not focused on releasing new, original content. Their subscribers aren’t expecting this either, which makes it a perfect scenario for all parties.
In the future, they may decide to produce original content, which would be for subscribers only. This would only happen when the pandemic is over, and that could take their service to the next level entirely. Keep your eyes peeled.
