Disney + boss: we are not looking for endless production

3 min read

Although Disney unveiled six more new titles for the company’s streaming service on Friday, it is not going to bring an endless range of films and series. That was explained by the Disney + boss, Kevin Mayer, after a big presentation at the D23 fan fair in California.

“Our position is that we go for quality, we give that more priority than quantity,” said Mayer in an explanation to international media, including BuzzE. “We are not looking for the largest possible volume, but we are looking for projects and products that our customers are interested in.”

For Disney + that will mainly be child-friendly content. The company will use the streaming service for private label titles Disney, Pixar, Marvel, Star Wars and National Geographic. The more mature programming of channels Fox, ABC and FX can be seen on another platform of the concern, Hulu. Unlike Disney +, which is launched on November 12 in the US, Canada and the Netherlands, Hulu is not available outside of North America. “Not yet”, Mayer hints. “But we may also roll that out internationally in the future.”

Lizzie McGuire

Earlier in the day, during the presentation at D23, a biennial fair for Disney fans in Anaheim, the entertainment giant announced, among other things, that the teenage series would bring back Lizzie McGuire. Hilary Duff once again takes on the role of Lizzie, who is now almost thirty and lives in New York. The actress announced on the D23 stage that the animated version of Lizzie, who reflected her thoughts and feelings in the original show, naturally also returns in the new series, but is still thirteen years old, unlike the real Lizzie.
