We Could See An End to 4K Physical Releases From Walt Disney Studios

This week, rumors have begun to fly about the future of physical media from Walt Disney Studios. As it stands, it currently looks that Disney will no longer be pursuing 4K physical releases in favor of putting media on the Disney+ or Hulu streaming services.

If the rumor proves to be true, Walt Disney Studios will still follow through with 4K physical releases for Disney animation, Pixar, Star Wars, and Marvel Studios projects. The Digital Bits, who originally reported the story, have said that this will have the biggest impact on Disney and Fox Studio’s live-action films. Disney is set to release Home Alone and Hocus Pocus on 4K physical next month but after that, there are no longer any plans to continue physical releases.

When I heard this, it made total sense to me. Disney has wanted to continue to build the catalog of its streaming services as it seems to be the way of the future. Just last month, Disney was proud to announce they crossed 60 million paid subscribers on the Disney+ streaming service and it is only just beginning.

What do you think of Disney pursuing more digital releases? Do you prefer to stream or watch a physical copy? Be sure to connect with us on Twitter and Facebook to let us know what you think!

    While i would Agree that they do want to put movies on hulu and disney plus, most tv edits of the films on disney plus are Nothing more but disrespectful to the film, By having a physical release along side with the rent or buy digital versions, it keeps the films in the original version as it is meant to be seen, so i would argue that they should continue with physical media releases along side digital releases , maybe with a lot of care due to covid right now, like have them sparced out a couple of releases at a time Until covid ends and then the physical releases can return to their normal state
