I’m not sure how many more direct debits my bank account can take.

I said I never would but I just signed up to someone’s Patreon and when you put that on top of the obvious Netflix, Amazon Prime, car insurance and such, this Disney+ thing is going to be the last nail in my coffin.

I subscribed to Tinder Gold a few months back when I was drunk and now I don’t know how to cancel it.

With all of the news about what’s being cancelled on Netflix and the theory that many of the shows will be making their way to Disney’s upcoming streaming service, it’s hard to ignore how good it could be.

On top of that, we have the original Star Wars and MCU entries to deal with, such as The Mandelorian and whatever the Loki thing will be called.

But that’s not enough for some people because they just want to watch, I don’t know, Mulan, with a Fantasia chaser.

Worry not if you’re one of those people though, since it transpires that Disney+ will likely host every single Dinsey-produced cinematic release.

The news comes after Disney CEO, Bob Iger, revealed that the company fully intends to:

put its entire motion picture library on the service, including movies that have traditionally been kept in its archives.

It’s a huge move from Disney and a fantastic advert for the streaming service, though it probably isn’t true. Disney have a few films that are better off never being seen again, such as the infamous Song of the South.

And John Carter.

I’d be lying, of course, if I said that there wasn’t enough money to make me watch John Carter again because of course there is, but I’m definitely asking for at least £250.

I genuinely believe that less than 100 people will watch John Carter on Disney+ in it’s first year of operation. No-body wants to watch that film.

Seriously, Disney, don’t put John Carter on Disney+ and see how many people notice. I really think I might be the only one.

Disney+ is expected to be released later this year, with Bob Iger saying that it will be cheaper than Netflix, which is nice.

Actually since I have your attention, Disney, is Chicken Little in the same cinematic universe as Zootopia? Thanks.
