Disney's New Streaming Service Won't Feature R-Rated Content

We’re still over a year away from the Disney streaming service launching (it will happen sometime in fall 2019), but supposedly the decision has already been made to not feature any R-rated movies as part of the lineup. Instead, the R-rated fare will go to Hulu, which Disney owns a 30% stock in and currently has some of its movies available. This decision isn’t terribly shocking, as most Disney theatrical projects, whether they hail from the main label or come from somewhere else like Marvel Studios, rarely go past PG-13. Disney also has a reputation for being family-friendly, so while some of the movies that will be available on the service may not be suitable for extremely young viewers, at least there’s no chance that these young’uns could stumble across something that has excessive violence, a lot of cursing, etc.
