EXCLUSIVE: No final decision has been made, but Deadline hears that the uncertainty of the future theatrical marketplace has Disney looking at launching a number of its upcoming tent pole family films on Disney+ instead of the theatrical release bows that were envisioned when the films were developed and green lit. At this point, the films being discussed to make that pivot are Cruella, the Craig Gillespie-directed live action re-imaging of the animated classic that stars Emma Stone and Emma Thompson, the Robert Zemeckis-directed Pinocchio that has Tom Hanks starring, and Peter Pan and Wendy, the David Lowery-directed film that has Grown-ish star Yara Shahidi set to play Tinker Bell. It isn’t clear at the moment whether the films will be offered free to Disney+ subscribers, as was done with the Pete Docter-directed Pixar film Soul, or for a premium charge as was done with Mulan. Still, it’s a bombshell development in the fast changing theatrical/streaming landscape.
