It's almost as if it was designed as a ride first then turned into a film. 

When Rudyard sodding Kipling isn’t quite racist enough, Disney will make up the shortfall. 

It’s because Disney Plus are doing a remake of Song Of The South. It’s starring Brooke Shields, Chris Langham and Spike Milligan is redoing his Curry and Chips persona to play Uncle Remus. Written by

But will all of those still be there come the end of February? I haven’t got Amazon Prime, so if most of that is on there but coming to Disney+ for a small price increase as opposed to a full Amazon Prime subscription (is that still £7.99p/m?) then that’s your hook. 

I’m more interested in what movies will be on Star rather than the TV content, but there’s a few things I might give a try. I’ve never watched Atlanta for example, and it’s been a longtime since I last watched 24, it’ll be interesting to see if that’s aged well

I tend to re-watch XFiles every few years so looking forward to doing that again.

Will probably do Scrubs again too as haven't for a while and I always enjoy it.

Can't see too much on there I haven't watched before but it'll be good to have new content.

If it’s anything like their Sky deal, content will slowly start disappearing from other streaming services as the licences expire and become exclusive to Disney plus.
The big test for them will be if it’s just a content dump or will they be spending time on the bigger licences like X files and Buffy. Buffy is currently available on Amazon Prime but it’s the weird remasters, with the dodgy colour grading and crew members in shot. I wonder if they’ll show the original tv crop versions.

I think that's overlooking what else you get for ÂŁ7.99 from Amazon though.

I believe they are the only digitised versions that exist. The cost to digitise and reformat for 4:3 isn't worth it for a 20+ year old show. Fox remastered them and that's ready to broadcast, whiny nerds or not.

I did have it for about 4 months last year but didn’t use it anywhere near as much as other things. The free next day delivery is great if you use Amazon all the time, but I only ever seem to use it over Christmas now. Just wasn’t for me

They do exist digitally, as the original dvd releases were 4:3 in SD. The Amazon releases are the only HD versions of them though. 

Considering they have already backtracked and started releasing the original aspect versions of the Simpson after the backlash (whiny nerds win!) I am intrigued.

Has Disney had any examples of editing or censoring these shows so far? Seems kinda pointless to subscribe if they're going to removing anything they deem to be too explicit or inappropriate for their logo.

Until they launch it, no one knows. None of the Disney content has been edited. But the whole point of Star is to have a grown up section of the app which will need a pin if you have kids accessing so I am guessing they won’t.

At the min they just use disclaimers. Yesterday they did add parental control so under 7s can't watch things with racial stereotypes but this new content is totally different and will sit seperatly so who knows.

Ah, that pin mechanic sounds promising. I know Netflix and other services mix in all their content without any worries, I just never thought I'd see stuff like the X-Files, Family Guy, Die Hard and Borat directly associated with Disney. I guess that's the habitual thinking of someone who has always associated Disney exclusively with children's/family entertainment.
