Default Disney+ is still struggling to find its identity

...as it grapples with a dearth of original series

https://www.hollywoodreporter.com/ne...opment-1283260

Disney's streaming service has more than 50 scripted shows and about 50 unscripted shows in development, according to The Hollywood Reporter, which adds that "those launches have been heavily weighted to the service’s first six months, leaving several months until its next high-profile series debuts. With its upcoming release calendar looking thin, multiple sources with connections to Disney suggest that the service is still struggling to define its identity." Disney+ is also dealing with its PG-13 restrictions that has led to the scrapping of the mature version of the Lizzie McGuire reboot that has left Hilary Duff pleading with Disney to move it to Hulu.

The saddest thing is the lack of Walt Disney's complete film and TV library on Disney+ and the lowly positioning it has received in advertising and PR. Those entrusted as stewards of these timeless assets and Walt's legacy have truly dropped the bone while looking at their own reflection.

Exactly. They really dropped the ball on content. It's just not worth it for me unless they put their entire catalogue on there.

In my eyes the reason why Disney+ seems to be struggling is because a lot of people don't want to pay the expensive price that Disney+ is going for yet they started offering it for free at the Disney resort hotels to each guest who stays there. But another thing I noticed about Disney+ that might not be worth it for some people is you can rarely watch a whole movie or cartoon without it having glitches and I noticed this when I was trying to watch Frozen II and I was about to see the end when Disney+ had a glitch and I can't figure it out. Second Disney+ needs to improve it's cartoon lineup because out of all the good Disney cartoons they have besides Elena Of Avalor the new reboot of Ducktales and Phineas And Ferb they need to add The Adventures Of The Gummi Bears The Wuzzles and the Aladdin cartoon series. But if Disney could adjust the price for Disney+ it would improve itself even better and more people could subscribe to it even more
