Think of it as somebody sitting there playing cards. They just laid down a skip card to shop for themselves a while . Artemis Fowl, they’re like, ‘Skip. You can watch that on Disney+.’ They’re not going to stick a Marvel movie on Disney+ because they’ve got some Marvel TV shows coming, and they must keep them Marvel movies valuable”.
