THE Disney held its annual D23 conference over the weekend and demonstrated a preview of Disney +, its Netflix rival. One thing that went unnoticed, however, is that the future streaming service really won't have adult content: Deadpool and other very violent Fox movies should go to Hulu.
Entertainment journalist Eric Vespe, who was on D23, asked if Disney + would have R-rated content; In the US, this means that children under 17 can only watch if they are accompanied by an adult.
The Disney representative confirmed that the Disney + series and movies will be at most PG-13, meaning they may be unsuitable for children under 13. According to TechCrunchthis means that “there will be nothing remotely bloody or explicit as Deadpool in streaming ”.
Violent Fox movies can go to Hulu
Vespe then asked if more adult Fox movies would stop at the Hulu streaming service; the representative just said that this "is a good kick". O deadline said last year that Disney + would have a "consistent with the Disney brand" lineup; R-rated movies “will go to Hulu”.
Remember, in the US, Disney + will be sold in a bundle 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.

According to Variety, Disney wants to keep Deadpool rated R but also intends to fit it into the Cinematic Universe Marvel (MCU), whose films are rated PG-13. "The goal is to find a way for the character to easily move between the Avengers spinoffs and their own bloody adventures," the publication says.
Just don't wait to find Deadpool in the Disney + catalog. Instead, we'll have exclusive Pixar series and movies, Star Wars, Marvel, National Geographic and Disney itself. The service will offer 4K, HDR and Dolby Atmos even on the cheapest plan. He arrives on November 12 in the US, Canada and the Netherlands; Its launch in Latin America is scheduled for 2020.
