Disney will be releasing its own video on demand service later this year called Disney+.

While several Star Wars TV shows will be a part of the service, there are currently no plans to release any exclusive Star Wars movies on the platform.

Disney CEO, Bob Iger, was interviewed by Barrons and he has no current plan to release high budget movies on the Disney+ streaming platform. You can read what he had to say posted down below.

"We’re looking to invest significantly in television series on a per-episode business, and we’re looking to make movies that are higher budget, but nothing like that. We wouldn’t make a Star Wars movie for this platform. When everybody goes out on the weekend and you have a movie that opens up to $200 million, there’s a buzz that creates that enhances value. We like that. And eventually the movies we’re making are going to [end up on] the service.

Movies are a huge investment and it's more profitable for Disney to release huge movies like Star Wars and Avenger films in cinemas.

After all, both Avengers: Infinity War and Star Wars: The Force Awakens managed to earn over $2 billion at the worldwide Box Office.

That's not to say movies released on streaming services cannot be successful. After all over on Netflix, the movie called Bird Box was seen by over 45 million users worldwide. This could be a future for films that aren't released theatrically.

For now, Disney is busy concentrating on making The Mandalorian TV show which is expected to premiere sometime later this year. After that, Rogue One's Cassian Andor will have his own Star Wars TV show too in the near future.
