In an official press release regarding a restructuring of the Walt Disney Company, it was confirmed that
The Company will hold a virtual Investor Day on December 10, where it will present further details of its direct-to-consumer strategies.
At last years Investors Day event, which was held in April, Disney unveiled lots of details on its new streaming service, Disney+, including its price, its subscriber projections, global rollout plans, initial launch date and details about forthcoming Disney+ Originals.
During the next Investor Day, we will hear more about the upcoming streaming platform, Star, which will be the international version of Hulu.

With the Walt Disney Company now focused on streaming, this years virtual event will be extremely important to what content arrives on Disney+ in the future.
