Disney Strikes A Longterm Deal With Pinewood Studios In England
In what is sure to be fantastic news for Disney filmmaking- the Walt Disney Company has struck a long-term deal with Pinewood Studios to continue using their Buckinghamshire, England studio space. According to various sources, the deal is good through 2029.
Pinewood Studios has long been the go-to studio for Disney’s Star Wars films including the upcoming “The Rise of Skywalker” as well as other hits like “Mary Poppins Returns” and Marvel’s “Avengers: Age of Ultron”
Pinewood has been a major partner in Disney’s rise to blockbuster domination. Much of the studio filming for Disney’s “Star Wars” films — including their upcoming film “The Rise of Skywalker” — took place at the British backlot located 20 miles from Central London. Other Disney films shot there include last year’s “Mary Poppins Returns” and Marvel films like “Avengers: Age of Ultron.”
The deal is significant in part because it comes as Disney finalizes their Disney+ line-up. The studio has a long cinematic history and was the home to the James Bond franchise as well as the Hobbit movies.
According to a recent report in Digital TV, Paul Goulding chairman of the Pinewood Group had this to say about the deal: “It’s wonderful to have Disney here at Pinewood. They’ve been making great films with us for many years, and the fact they want to shoot so many more here is testimony not only to the quality of the teams and infrastructure at Pinewood but also to the British film industry as a whole,” he said.
It will be exciting in the years ahead to see what exciting projects come out of the studios! Readers are encouraged to keep following along with MickeyBlog for the latest Disney movie news and updates.
