Disney’s shift toward streaming could have a dramatic effect on some of its highest-profile releases. Deadlinesources understand the company is considering releasing live-action remakes Cruella, Peter Pan and Wendy and Pinocchio on Disney+ rather than in theaters. It’s not certain if Disney would make them free to subscribers or ask for an early access premium like it did with Mulan.

The insiders stressed that there hadn’t been a “final decision,” and that Disney was still exploring options. If it did move these titles to Disney+ releases, though, it could represent a decisive moment for streaming movies. The company has been willing to send movies to streaming in response to the COVID-19 pandemic, including Mulan as well as Pixar’s Onward and Soul, but this would represent confidence that Disney+ could offer successful launches for the movies no matter how safe it is to return to theaters in 2021.
