Disney + sees itself as a competitor to Netflix and scores here especially with franchises such as Star Wars, Marvel, the complete Disney children's productions and much more. The goal is to bring service to as many platforms as possible, which of course includes the millions of consoles on the market.
Although we know that the streaming market is highly competitive, it is all the more important to emphasize that your own portfolio should ensure success. In this context, upcoming highlights such as "Aladdin", "Frozen 2" or the remake of "The Lion King" will be mentioned, which will then be available exclusively at Disney +. At the same time, all Disney content on other streaming services could disappear, including the Simpsons, which now include FOX and the Disney Group.
By the year 2024, we would like to attract 60 to 90 million customers for Disney +.
