Along with the announcement of Disney +, the new Disney streaming service to be released this November, Disney announced Tuesday it will be rebooting four popular franchises it acquired when it bought the rights to 21st Century Fox's entertainment companies. Specifically, Disney CEO Bob Iger said during a company call about third-quarter earnings, Home Alone, Night at the Museum, Diary of a Wimpy Kid, and Cheaper by the Dozen will be remade and available on the streaming service, which launches Nov. 12. Other than saying they'll be "reimagined" for "a new generation," Iger gave no details about the form they might take or when they might be released.
Disney had previously announced a live-action/CG remake of its own Lady and the Tramp for Disney+, and reports indicate that by the end of its first year, the service will have more than 400 movies and 7,500 TV episodes. Most films owned by Disney will no longer be available on Netflix after Disney+ launches.
