No Plans For Ad-Supported Disney Plus For Now
Services like Spotify offer its customers a free tier, where some features are limited and users will have to put up with ads.

Disney Shows Off Its ‘Real’ Retractable Lightsaber
Lightsabers have to be one of the coolest weapons we’ve seen in fiction, and throughout the years, we’ve seen many people attempt to make it.

If you’ve ever been to a theme park or a concert, sometimes you are given these paper bracelets that act as your ticket into the venue. The problem with these bracelets is that they can get damaged and lost or they might not be particularly pleasant to wear, which is why Disney is taking steps to change that.
Disney+ Could Overtake Netflix In The Next 5 Years
Right now Netflix is pretty much sitting at the top of the list when it comes to streaming.

Given the various streaming platforms under Disney’s banner, it didn’t really come as a surprise when the company decided to offer them as a bundle where for $12.99 a month, users could get Disney+, ESPN+, and Hulu. However, this version only offered the ad-based version of Hulu, which for some isn’t ideal.
Disney+ Puts New Restrictions On Kids Profiles

Disney Created A Robot With An Scarily Unnerving Gaze
While robots might be getting better at mimicking the actions of humans, one thing it lacks is in the eyes. While one could create artificial eyes for robots, they tend to look lifeless.
