While Disney is busy axing in-the-works projects from newly acquired 20th Century Fox, it's going full steam ahead on rebooting some of Fox's most popular films.
Family-friendly movies "Night at the Museum," "Diary of a Wimpy Kid," "Home Alone" and "Cheaper by the Dozen" (which was already a reboot of the 1950 film), would be rebooted for the studio's upcoming streaming service, Disney+, Disney CEO Bob Iger revealed today.
"We’re also focused on leveraging Fox’s vast library of great titles to further enrich the content mix on our [direct to consumer] platforms," said Iger.
Whether those films will be reborn as feature films or TV series, we don't yet know.
In addition to Disney's "vault" offerings, new original "Star Wars" and Marvel series, there will be 300 hours of classic Fox content when Disney+ launches November 12.
The subscription price is $7 monthly. An enhanced streaming package, with ESPN Plus and Hulu will cost you $12.99, the studio announced today.
