Disney Plus is changing movie theater windows… forever? – Marseille News

Needless to say, 2020 has been a dismal year for theaters. We now know that at least the first half of 2021 will remain so. And more, with the latest news on how Disney Plus continues to shorten distribution windows.

The coronavirus forced most countries to shut down their theaters, sparking a chain reaction that ended with the creation of many studios – the ones that would go theatrically – directly on OTT services or streaming platforms.

After some pioneers, Disney was the first Major who hit hard with the launch of Mulan on Disney Plus for an additional 24 euros / 30 dollars.

Since then, Disney has continued to bet in this manner, also playing with the direct release formula with no additional payout (as happened with Soul Yes Hamilton). Now he will try a third modality with the first of Raya and the last dragon, What arrives at the same time in theaters and Disney Plus, but, again, with an additional payment.
