Disney + arrived in Brazil only in November 2020, but it was already expected that, in a short time, streaming will become one of Netflix’s biggest competitors. It is true that, for now, practically 80% of the catalog consists of old films, such as classic Disney productions. But the production of original content is in full swing, and that includes series from the Marvel Cinematic Universe and the acclaimed The Mandalorian , original films and much more, which will guarantee a rapid growth in the number of novelties.

But don’t underestimate the power of the classics as well. Entering Disney + for the first time has a different feeling, a mixture of nostalgia and pseudo-exclusivity. It is as if you finally won the key to the collection of drawings and films that were part of your childhood. And it is not for nothing. Today, Disney owns the rights to Pixar, Lucasfilm ( Star Wars ), from Marvel, Fox and National Geographic, and yes, the productions of these studios are in force there, including all the movies Star Wars and Marvel.
