Former president of Consumer Products, Games and Publishing Kareem Daniel has been promoted to oversee the new media distribution group. His job is to monetize all that content, in ways that may or may not include repeats of Disney’s $30 “premier VOD” Mulan release on Disney+. The company has scheduled an investor day event for December 10th where it will present more details on its direct-to-consumer plans.

Disney:

“Studios: Messrs. Horn and Bergman will serve as Chairmen, Studios Content, which will focus on creating branded theatrical and episodic content based on the Company’s powerhouse franchises for theatrical exhibition, Disney+ and the Company’s other streaming services.
