In a world where major studios such as Disney have been censoring and editing older works, physical media has been important for those that want to preserve history and watch works that haven't been censored for modern sensibilities. But now, physical
media from major studios could soon be a thing of the past if Disney has its way, signaling a move towards a online digital-only future.
The Walt Disney Company has declared the discontinuation of physical disc production for its movies and TV shows
in Australia, effective immediately.
Halting the production of DVDs, Blu-rays, and 4K Blu-ray discs, the media giant intends to drive the focus towards digital releases and its streaming service, Disney+. The initial phase of this transition is
slated to begin post the release of Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol. 3 , which will be the last in-line movie to be released on physical discs in Australia and, although not confirmed, could be a sign of things to come in other countries.
