THE Disney held its annual D23 conference over the weekend and demonstrated a preview of Disney +, its Netflix rival. One detail that has gone somewhat unnoticed, however, is that the future streaming service will not really have adult content: Deadpool and other Fox films with a lot of violence should go to Hulu.
Entertainment journalist Eric Vespe, who is on D23, asked if Disney + would have R-rated content; in the USA, this means that children under 17 can only attend if accompanied by an adult.
The Disney representative confirmed that Disney + series and films will be at most PG-13, meaning they may be unsuitable for young people up to 13 years old. According to the TechCrunch, this means that “there will be nothing remotely bloody or explicit as Deadpool streaming ”.
Violent Fox films can go to Hulu
Vespe then asked if Fox’s more adult films would end up on the Hulu streaming service; the representative only said that this “is a good guess”. O deadline said last year that Disney + would have a schedule “consistent with the Disney brand”; films rated R “will go to Hulu”.
Remember that in the US, Disney + will be sold in a package with Hulu and ESPN + for $ 12.99, the same price as the standard Netflix plan. It can also be purchased individually for $ 6.99.
I followed up asking if Fox’s harder edge stuff would end up on Hulu and just got a smile and “that’s a good assumption” in return.

Disney made official the acquisition of Fox this year, including 20th Century Fox Studio, Fox and National Geographic subscription channels, and a majority stake in Hulu. This involves brands known as The Simpsons, X-Men and Fantastic Four, Besides Deadpool.
According to Variety, Disney wants to keep Deadpool rated R, but also intends to fit it into the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU), whose films are rated PG-13. “The goal is to find a way for the character to move easily between the Avengers spinoffs and their own bloody adventures,” says the publication.
Just don’t expect to find Deadpool in the Disney + catalog. Instead, we’ll have exclusive series and films from Pixar, Star Wars, Marvel, National Geographic and Disney itself. The service will offer 4K, HDR and Dolby Atmos even on the cheapest plane. He arrives on November 12 in the USA, Canada and the Netherlands; its launch in Latin America is scheduled for 2020.
