    I love Disney but I need to rant real quick lol: Who is in charge of green lighting and developing films and TV content for Disney+ because a solid 75% of the content announced and aired so far is just uninteresting, uninspired, or just unnecessary... Like Godmothered, Sneakerella, Lilo & Stitch unnecessary remake, Shop Class, The Maze, Three Men and a Baby second or third remake, The Parent Trap third or forth remake, Encore, Prince Anders Aladdin spin off... They need more live action original series and films. Stargirl, Timmy Failure, 29 Dates, and Togo all sound fine but they also need more content like You Again, When in Rome, Step Up, and some of those types of Touchstone Pictures type of films. Safety sounds the most promising film announced so far in terms of appeal to adults. I know that executives aren’t worried about the lack of adult or mature content — I like The Mandalorian and the Marvel shows look fine (but) — but when I say adult, I mean The Handmaid’s Tale, The Morning Show, Servant, The Crown, Dead to Me, Jessica Jones, Atlanta, Stumptown, The Hot Zone, Devious Maids, Lost, American Dad, Homeland, hell Pretty Little Liars and High Fidelity. This might be a bit different if Disney+ was available as a discounted add on on Hulu or if both services were combined. They’re doing it with Disney+ Hotstar in India so why not do the same with Disney+, ESPN+, and Hulu in the US. As for series, more stuff like Big Shots, Love Victor, Biggest Star in Appleton, Life and Deaf, and such. ABC, Fox, and Freeform style comedies like Speechless, Fresh Off the Boat, Black•ish, Raising Hope, Malcom in the Middle, Young & Hungry, Baby Daddy, all seem fine enough for Disney+ and these types of sitcoms seem like the ones Disney+ should make. And why has Disney, of all studios, not been handing out animated film and series orders left and right?! This is Disney, Pixar, Blue Sky, Fox Animation, Marvel Animation, Lucasfilm Animation, and 20th Century Animation... why are we stuck with a second Phineas and Ferb movie, another season of The Clone Wars, an animated Marvel show, and some spin off series from Monsters Inc and potentially Rio and Ice Age? HBO Max has not held back ordering a slew of diverse animated programming from its studios but Disney seems to. And this isn’t about the content but my good, the user interface and design are really horrible in comparison to HBO Max which just looks much slicker. I’m not trying to hype up HBO Max, it’s just WarnerMedia is the closest company to compare against Disney.
