Disney already announced a premium VOD plan for its next big animated movie, a new tie-up for Hulu and ESPN+, and a truckload of Star Wars news. Now during its investor’s day presentation, the studio announced two live-action movies, Pinocchio (directed by Robert Zemeckis and starring Tom Hanks) and Peter Pan & Wendy, will both come to Disney+ instead of theaters.
