In the midst of growing concern over the strategy of ‘The House of the Mouse’ of simultaneously launching films on Disney + and in theaters, actors and actresses have not only raised their voices on this issue, but have already begun legal battles to protect Your rights.
The first to sue Disney was Scarlett Johansson, an actress who alleges a breach of contract at the premiere of Black Widow. On the other hand, it was reported that Emma Stone would be evaluating taking the same action for the launch of Cruella.
Dwayne Johnson and his position vis-a-vis Disney
Dwayne Johnson has also been linked to this issue. The actor has recently worked with Disney for the film Jungle Cruise, which had a hybrid premiere in 2021, after delaying its arrival in theaters from 2019.
According to Deadline, neither Johnson nor his production company Seven Bucks Productions, which co-produced Jungle Cruise, intend to sue Disney for a loss of income related to the release of the film.
In addition, it was indicated that the former WWE star is in negotiations with Disney regarding the release of the film outside the United States. Both sides are evaluating release methods in countries where movie theaters are still closed.
Disney’s recent series of hybrid releases has put the company at odds with several members of its staff, including Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige, who opposed the release of Black Widow on Disney + and theaters at the same time. .
