Video: Disney +: No Harry Potter, Batman & Co? Why?
In contrast to Amazon, Netflix or Sky, the "Disney +" offer only consists of series and films in which the "Walt Disney Company" owns the rights. Disney has long been more than just a cartoonist with a few amusement parks. The Walt Disney Company is one of the largest media groups in the world. The mega-group includes Pixar Animations Studios, Marvel Studios, Lucasfilm (Star Wars, Indiana Jones), 21st Century Fox (The Simpsons, X-Men), the ABC Network and many other studios, television stations and distributors. What you see on "Disney +" belongs to Disney.
In addition to Disney, there are of course also some other media companies such as "WarnerMedia". Their film and television company "Warner Bros. Entertainment" includes, for example, "Harry Potter" films as well as the latest superhero films and series from the DC universe such as "Batman", "Superman", "Wonder Woman" and " Flash”was created. Well-known film studios and broadcasters such as "New Line Cinema", "Turner", "HBO" and "The CW" belong to Warner Bros. With "HBO Max" WarnerMedia plans to launch its own streaming service in the United States in May 2020 - which is very similar how "Disney +" should consist of the content of the media group.
If Disney wanted to offer "Harry Potter" and other famous films and series from other film and series companies, they would have to acquire a temporary license (like Netflix). However, this is rather unlikely for two reasons: On the one hand, Disney itself has enough content to feed its streaming service, on the other hand, it is questionable whether the direct competition would sell the licenses to Disney at all.
