One of the items that he mentioned as being a top priority for the Walt Disney Company is its streaming service. He even went on to say that streaming is “the future”. The company is hoping to make the streaming service more profitable at least by the end of 2024.

When asked about the streaming success, he share the following, “We had a couple creative misses… one at Pixar, one at Disney Animation. You have to move past that. You have to process failure successfully.”

Iger also said he recently spent time at Pixar and reviewed several upcoming projects.

With so many upcoming movie releases and with the news of the three sequels just announced, it seems like we have a lot to look forward to in Disney entertainment.
