The entertainment giant touts its streaming service as the home for far and Disney Plus Disney, Marvel, Pixar, National Geographic, and Star Wars content. But the reality is that it offers much more than that, also with Fox series and movies. Why? Because Disney bought Fox, in an operation that became effective in March 2019, after paying $ 71.3 billion.
At the moment Disney is trying to keep the businesses separate, as it did with the purchase of two other giants: ESPN and Hulu (and many others). In fact, in the United States, in addition to subscribing to Disney Plus separately, one can purchase packages that include ESPN and Hulu.
For the same reason, to keep these businesses separate, is that not all the seasons of The Simpsons are available on Disney Plus and, at the moment, in Latin America there are only two: 29 and 30. Will there be more? Surely and, as with other Fox content, it will depend, on the one hand, on some specific licenses and on the other, on how the competition behaves and how Disney + wants to make use of that content.
Why? Disney will launch its new Star platform in 2021, which will be designed for a slightly more adult audience than Disney Plus, and which will contain material from Fox, ABC, FX, Freeform and Searchlight.
Among the series and movies that we can currently see on Disney Plus and that are from Fox, there are blockbusters such as “Avatar”; “My Poor Little Angel” 1, 2 and 3; “The Ice Age”, parts 1, 2 and 3; or the franchise “X-Men” (although it is based on Marvel material they were produced by Fox), among other proposals.
