Avatar, My poor little angel, The young scissorhands, are some of the films that are on Disney Plus and that were produced by the 20th Century Fox studio, and although they are great classics, there is also other type of content from the now-defunct studio They just couldn’t make it to Disney Plus like Alien, Fight Club, The Passion of the Christ, Logan.
The information that exists so far according to Disney representatives in Latin America is that this content, and that it is a large library that must be used, will go to an app that will concentrate these movies and series, as such it cannot be the application of FOX because that is a different business model through pay TV subscription channels.
The answer is at the moment STAR, a service from India that has already been tested with great success, as Star has been on the market for years. It began in 1990 as Star TV, a conglomerate of various media and channels – currently more than 60 – but initially its main engine was to screen Hollywood films for the Indian market.
In 1993, Star’s adventure with US shareholders began when it was acquired by Ruppert Murdoch to rename it, now yes, STAR. This business was a success in India and was finally part of the package that the Walt Disney Company acquired at the end of December 2017.
In India they can even access what would be Disney Plus in that countryOnly there is called Disney Plus Hot Star and as you will see, there is a wide, but very wide catalog of Bollywood movies.
Disney representatives in Latin America indicated that all content would go to STAR although they did not mention any release date or what plans are for it. However, and as we pointed out a few months ago, Fox content that is not available on Disney Plus is being planned to arrive on this new platform in 2021.
Sergio López Aguirre Stanley Kubrick once said “To have a broader vision, not only see good movies, but also the bad ones” obviously I listened to him in the second and it’s very funny.
