The decision by Walt Disney Studios to move the release of Pixar film “Soul” from November 20 in theaters to December 25 directly onto Disney+ drew the “shock and dismay” of European exhibitors, according to the International Union of Cinemas. Said UNIC in a statement, “While cinemas will struggle to recover without new releases, so in truth too will our studio partners, whose decisions in such circumstances risk causing irreparable damage to key markets, many of whom will be less well-placed to support their films when they do decide to release them. It is no exaggeration to say that by the time some studios decide that the moment is right to release their films, it may be too late for many European cinemas.” Soul will be released theatrically in markets where Disney+ is not available.

Pandemic precautions can save money on Netflix productions, shared co-CEO Ted Sarandos at virtual Mipcom. “Because of all these safety protocols and people being very supportive of these safety protocols, productions run much smoother, so you actually save some shooting days sometimes,” he said. “Shooting days are shorter, the sets are better run, there’s fewer people on sets sometimes, which keeps the trains running on time.” Also significant is the financial benefit of people not getting sick. “Going into flu season, all these safety protocols for Covid are going to prevent people also from getting the flu as frequently as they did and you would lose shooting days,” noted Sarandos.
