Star Wars Episode 9 hit with delay after director shake up

Disney has announced that Star Wars Episode 9 will be arriving later than expected. When the company announced yesterday that JJ Abrams was being brought on to direct and write Episode 9, we probably should have assumed this would happen, as is sounds like Abrams' arrival is acting as something of a hard reset for production. In any case, we're all going to have to wait quite a bit longer for Episode 9 to release.

Netflix to Disney: wait, let’s talk about Marvel and Star Wars

Netflix to Disney: wait, let’s talk about Marvel and Star Wars

While Disney-made Disney content seems to be 100% off the table, Netflix still wants to negotiate over Marvel and Star Wars content. Disney, after all, owns the whole lot. Netflix stands to gain or lose a whole lot of viewers based on news bits like "Disney will ditch Netflix in 2019". Amid talks of the future of Disney's stream-friendly content, the CEO of the company agreed that Marvel and Star Wars (Lucasfilm) content might well be next to leave Netflix.

After an announcement of a Disney content pull from Netflix, the company further expressed the possibility of doing so with Lucasfilm and Marvel content. Not that they'd necessarily pull the content that's been licensed under Netflix brand specifically, but that they're considering more separate streaming services. If they do decide to split these other brands, we'd have one whole heck of a lot of streaming brands to choose from - or perhaps we'll see it the other way - that we've got too many services to pay for.

Apple Clips puts Disney favorites in revamped video app

Apple may have been fairly quiet about its Clips app since the iPhone video editing tool went live in April, but it's getting a big update today. Clips 1.1 is available to download in the App Store, but if you bought an iOS device recently you well already have it. Launched alongside, rather than replacing iMovie for iOS, Clips was intended to address the concern that its existing video editing tool was a little too serious and fairly complex.
