Will Disney+ address short “The Mandalorian” episodes
Disney+ has added a resume and restart option to its service. Shame they can’t add more minutes to The Mandalorian.
- Live TV coming to an end as we know it
- Is cord-cutting more expensive than cable
- What hackers will pay for your Disney+ account
If you want something with a little more angst, stick around, it’s about to kick off.
Disney+ listening to feedback
It’s groovy that Disney+ are listening to feedback, but how about listening to some more…
That’s right, “Chapter 2” of Disney+’s The Mandalorian was 27 minutes long once you take away its four minutes of credits.
Yes, the show is great, but let this sink in for a minute. The credits are 14 percent of the episode.
Between episodes one and two, we’ve had about an hour! We have six episodes left from a show that cost $100 million. Disney clearly spends like a government!
We’ll get 4 hours of “The Mandalorian“
Here’s the problem.
Disney spent $100 million, that’s $25 million per hour on a show that the average cord-cutter could binge through in an afternoon.
Here’s why it’s weekly: they’ve got nothing else.
Disney+ isn’t all that
Forget the fact they’re meddling with The Simpsons, or that they launched without a resume and restart function. Focus on what else they have in development? An Obi-Wan show, maybe. They have a Loki show. That’s it.
There will be huge gaps between good, exclusive content — and knowing that is painful, because they’ve got Star Wars!
If Disney spends $1 billion per year on exclusive content at the same rate as The Mandalorian, they’ll have about 40 hours of exclusively Disney+ content in 2020.
I’m calling it already: Disney+ is for babysitting.
