While Peacock does have older Universal Studios content, it doesn’t really have a Universal hub like Disney+'s Marvel, Pixar and Netflix. It is more focused on the NBCUniversal family of television networks. In fact, even the Jurassic Park family of movies is currently playing on HBO, not Peacock.
There is no question that Lightyear’s performance was disappointing and a rare Pixar miss. I had hopes it would hold out but instead it’s cooled its jets. I am mystified how people could have been confused about it being Toy Story 5. Pixar was pretty clear it was a Buzz Lightyear movie, not a Toy Story movie. Maybe they just wanted Toy Story 5, and without Woody, they weren’t interested.
Minions, I would point out, is more adolescent humor, teenagers who make their own spending decisions, and young adult who still have the sense of humor of teenagers. Personally, I’ve never understood the appeal, but not every movie is for everybody.
Still, I would not be surprised to see the stories of the new generation of the Space Command on Disney+, similar to how we’ve seen spin-offs of other Pixar and Disney animation properties. If anyone hasn’t seen the new Baymax shorts series (just six episodes so blink and you’ll miss it), they are wonderful. They don’t feature any of the Big Hero Six characters, other than Hero and his mom (and Moochie the cat) but focus on Baymax spreading his own form of healthcare in the San Fransokoyo area.
I also just watched the short-run Star Wars Vision series after Kenobi ended and while I’m not normally a fan of anime, I loved the inventive takes on the Star Wars universe, blending Japanese art with Lucas’s world.
Who is also (finally) watching the Marvel What If series, and then will get on with Stranger Things Season 4…
