According to Polygon, the Disney+ service is going to include "the entire Disney motion picture library" shortly after it launches. Releasing its hundreds of classic titles will also be a way to generate subscribers for Disney+, which though ahead of the streaming game when compared to other Hollywood studios, is still arriving years after companies like Netflix and Amazon have staked their claim and grown their audiences in the OTT world. That meant that customers who didn't buy a physical copy of the movie immediately would be out of luck until Disney brought it out of the vault as a new edition or a special release run.

Disney CEO Robert Iger announced at a shareholder meeting on Thursday that the streaming service will house the "entire Disney motion picture library", from (presumably) 1920s shorts like Alice's Day at Sea to 1937's Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs (the company's first full-length animated feature) to more recent fare, like Frozen, Mary Poppins Returns, and Ralph Breaks the Internet. If you've never heard of this vault, you're probably imagining an actual magical vault, guarded by trolls and warlocks.

However, some people have raised an eyebrow on whether every film will from the Vault will *actually* be available. Disney is also in the process of acquiring 21st Century Fox.

The problem is, of course, Bennett was their best defensive end last season and his production won't be easy to match. Earlier Friday, Bennett appeared on NFL Network , knowing his time with the Eagles would soon be over.

The Disney Vault has been a marketing and sales strategy for years.

She said: "While there is little question there are more direct-to-consumer services today than ultimately should survive, we have no doubt that Disney+ remains on the short list of products that should prevail longer-term". Seems to be a combination of central location, space availability, and paying homage to Walt Disney's home state and his effort to launch a theme park here back in the 1960s.
