With most streaming services allowing people to, at the push of a button, find comedies, action, horror, and more, it’s no surprise Disney wants to corner nearly all the markets. In that way, they have plans for more when it comes to their Disney+ roster. As reported by THR, Disney is planning to add a Mickey Mouse documentary.
The doc will be produced by Won’t You Be My Neighbor producer Morgan Neville and directed by Jeff Malmberg. As expected, the doc will focus primarily on the character’s pop culture presence and impact.
Disney also has Howard under their belt, a documentary based on Howard Ashman, the lyricist behind The Little Mermaid, Aladdin, and more. 1950s’ People & Places is also coming back to teach you about “extraordinary people”.
“Disney has a rich history in nonfiction storytelling that dates back to the 1940s,” Disney+’s president of content and marketing, Ricky Strauss said. “The projects announced and showcased here today reflect Disney+’s commitment to building on Walt’s storytelling ethos and core values of creativity, innovation and exploration.”
Disney+ is going public on November 12, 2019, for $6.99 a month or $69.99 a year. On top of Disney’s original content including Mandalorian, Encore, Loki, and more, you can also have access to all Disney’s wide roster of their hit flicks.
The Mickey Mouse documentary has no yet as of now.
