It is not yet known whether the future series will remain faithful to the original film by Roger Spottiswoode.

The American studio’s streaming platform has no qualms about raiding Disney and 20th Century Fox catalogues to deliver original content to its subscribers.

Disney+ attracted 10 million subscribers in only 24 hours when it launched in mid-November in the United States, Canada and the Netherlands.

It will be launched in more Western European markets next year, Eastern Europe and Latin America through 2021, and Asia and the Pacific territories next year and 2021.

Tom Hanks is known for his roles in films such as Sleepless in Seattle, Forrest Gump and  Apollo 13. He also voices Sheriff Woody in the Toy Story animated film series.Follow us on Social Media
