Now, thanks to this report, we know that from Captain Marvel on, they will be heading to Disney's own platform. He has no background in creative content production, shifting into the role from Walt Disney Studios, where he was president of marketing.

According to the earnings call, the new Disney streaming service will be cheaper than Netflix.

Disney, which has been pushing up prices at its theme parks in recent years, saw the latest price hike lead to a slim 1 percent gain in U.S. theme park attendance in the period - down from an 8 percent increase last year - while hotel occupancy rates dropped to 86 percent from 88 percent. It is on the verge of gaining new film, television and worldwide properties in a $71 billion purchase of assets from Twenty-First Century Fox Inc (FOXA.O). Disney has seen "noticeable improvement in the rate of (subscriber) loss in each of the last four quarters", he said.
