The Entire Disney Library Will Be Included on The Disney+ Streaming Service

If you weren’t planning on subscribing to the Disney+ Streaming Service after they announced that Star Wars and Marvel shows would be a mainstay on the platform, then you certainly will be signing up now.

According to CNBC, Disney CEO Bob Iger revealed in an investors meeting today that they would eventually, “put its entire motion picture library on the service, including movies that have traditionally been kept in its archives.” This means Disney will open the floodgates and allow viewers to see what is normally kept in the “Disney Vault.”

For those not aware of the “Disney Vault,” it was a marketing strategy implemented by Disney to drum up home video sales. A Disney movie would be released on home video then after a few months the company would stop printing new copies and seal it away in the “vault.” They would stop creating new copies for years at a time, then would make a big deal about opening the vault for a particular movie for a new home video “release.” For example, just this past week the “Signature Edition” for Disney’s The Little Mermaid was just released on Blu-ray after six years of not being in circulation since the “Diamond Edition” was released in 2013.

This is a huge selling point for the Disney+ service, especially if there is a particular movie that you haven’t seen in years and have not been able to find anywhere. In my case, its Disney’s animated 101 Dalmatians. I have been wanting to see this movie for months and have been unable to find a copy anywhere or find it on any streaming service. So to get my fix I would have to subscribe to Disney+.

June 17-19 Box Office Results

Yet another record has been broken!

Over the weekend Finding Dory easy set the new record for being the biggest all-time domestic opening film for an animated movie. The record was previously held by Dreamworks’ Shrek the Third which held the record with $121.6 million since May of 2007.  Finding Dory also easily swam past the number two spot at the box office over the weekend, Central Intelligence, beating it by nearly four times as much!

However,  not everything about the weekend’s box office results is sunshine and rainbows.  The fantasy/adventure Warcraft only brought in $7 million in its second weekend of release, barely making it into the top five.  Domestically,  this film has not done well at the Box Office at all.  However, it is still making a killing in the international market. Where it has only made roughly $38 million in its two weeks in the U.S. in the same amount of time it has made over $200 million in China alone!  So when considering the international box office, this movie is not considered a “flop.”

Check out the rest of the box office results below!

No 1. Finding Dory – $135,060,273 in its first weekend of release.

No 2. Central Intelligence $35,535,250 in its first weekend of release.

No 3. The Conjuring 2 – $14,880,050. Bringing its total gross in its 2nd weekend to $71,055,136.

No 4. Now You See Me 2 $9,373,379. Bringing its total gross in its 2nd weekend to $41,085,908.

No 5. Warcraft – $7,241,430. Bringing its total gross in its 2nd weekend to $38,432,955.
