Artemis Fowl Disney+ exclusive premiere date is now official

Video streaming has always been a force to reckon with but so far it has conveniently stayed out of the theater industry's way. Films would become available digitally only after cinemas have profited from them, sometimes even a year after the movie premiered.

Disney says The Simpsons in original format will arrive next month

Disney says The Simpsons in original format will arrive next month

Late last year following the launch of its Disney+ streaming service, Disney promised that it would make The Simpsons available in its original 4:3 aspect ratio (for the first 20 or so seasons) at the request of fans.

Looking back at Bob Iger’s Disney

Looking back at Bob Iger’s Disney

The man behind Disney’s meteoric rise over the past decade stepped down from the throne at the end of February. Disney was massive long before, but in his 15 years at the helm, former CEO Bob Iger, 69, brought the House of Mouse to astronomical heights. He was behind key acquisitions that helped Disney to increase its annual revenue by over 200% since he took over in 2005.
