So this service is about to launch.
Considered a favorite to have some lasting power vs. Netflix and other streaming services because of its library.
I'm more interested in the original content, which is really how these streaming services define themselves. After all, how many times will people watch Avenger, Pixar and Star Wars movies?
ESPN SportsCenter was promoting The Mandalorian. Why? Disney of course but they based it on the fact that Gina Carano, one of the cast members, is a former UFC fighter.
In any event, the Star Wars nerds seem to be excited based on trailers. But these Star Wars spinoff movies have been somewhat disappointing I think. Still, some people seem to be anticipating this more than upcoming Star Wars movies.
OK looking at the list of original content, looks like they'll do some other Star Wars and MCU shows of some kind.
Unless you're really fans of these properties, it seems like these shows could dilute the brands, probably make the general viewer sick of Star Wars and Marvel.
It would be far more interesting to see some new content based on the original Disney characters -- Mickey Mouse, Donald Duck, etc. Why don't they make more movies out of those?
Anyways it looks like at launch, most of the talk will be about The Mandalorian.
