This has been one busy week for Disney!

The beloved company that serves as the home of iconic characters like Mickey Mouse and Donald Duck has been making power plays by attempting to add 21st Century Fox shows and movies to its roster, and is now announcing ALL future Marvel shows will air exclusively on a new Disney streaming service!

Several months ago, Disney CEO Bob Iger announced that the company would be launching its very own streaming service which is expected to launch in 2019. Disney also revealed their intention to produce their own original content for the service, including films and TV series, which leaves Netflix’s Disney produced Marvel shows in an awkward position.

According to a report by the Wall Street Journal (via /Film), any future Marvel shows will play exclusively on Disney’s streaming service, and although there’s no word on whether Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Luke Cage, Iron Fist, The Defenders, and The Punisher will be following them, it’s probably a good bet that they will at some point. The WSJ also confirms that Disney’s attempt to purchase much of Twentieth Century Fox was part of their plan to compete with Netflix. “[W]e’ve turned our attention to the one platform seeing growth challenges,” Disney Chief Strategy Officer Kevin Mayer said in the WSJ article. “That’s the television platform.” Had the Fox deal gone ahead, it would have given Disney control of much of Fox’s TV shows, which they likely would have then moved over to their streaming service. Mayer added that he doesn’t think of Disney’s new service as “an anti-Netflix move,” but rather as a “pro-Disney move.” Bringing all of Disney’s movies and TV shows under one roof won’t be cheap, as the WSJ claims that it will end up costing Disney more then $300 million a year.

Comprised of eight close-knit siblings, this funny, witty, daring and clever group must navigate the upper ten thousand’s marriage mart in search of romance, adventure and love.

QUOTE FROM CREATOR CHRIS VAN DUSEN:

“We could not have found a more gifted group of actors to bring Bridgerton to life.  When creating this series, the goal was to turn a very traditional genre on its head and make something fresh, smart, sexy and fun. That’s exactly what this cast embodies and I’m ridiculously excited to see them inhabit these characters and captivate viewers in their own incredibly brilliant ways.”

CAST:

 Phoebe Dynevor bridgerton

PHOEBE DYNEVOR (Younger, Dickensian) will play “DAPHNE BRIDGERTON.”

The picture-perfect young debutante has been waiting her entire life to make her grand debut on the marriage mart.  Poised to be the season of 1813’s forthcoming Incomparable, Daphne’s set to take the town by storm – but not everything goes exactly as planned for this diamond of the first water, especially after she meets a certain Duke.

Rege-Jean Page bridgerton

REGÉ-JEAN PAGE (For The People, Roots) will play “SIMON BASSET.”

Having newly returned to London, the Duke of Hastings finds himself the primary topic of conversation amongst marriage-minded misses and ambitious mamas alike.  Yet, for reasons of his own, our devastating Duke has zero interest in his title, society, or taking a wife.

Golda Rosheuvel bridgerton

GOLDA ROSHEUVEL (Silent Witness, Lady MacBeth) will play “QUEEN CHARLOTTE.”

The veritable tastemaker of London society, Queen Charlotte finds herself living for the sordid gossip that Lady Whistledown prints, though she’d swear she’s above such mundane musings.  It’s only when the ton’s newest gossip writer takes aim at the palace that Queen Charlotte knows she must do something about it.
