Of all the companies to enter the streaming wars, Disney has perhaps the greatest built-in advantage with Disney Plus. It can draw from a deep vault of its own animated and live-action movies and from popular shows on its own cable networks. It can cherry-pick selections from company properties like Marvel, Star Wars, National Geographic and 21st Century Fox. And that’s not counting the platform’s original TV shows and movies, like the Star Wars series “The Mandalorian” and the new live-action version of “Lady and the Tramp.”
