Netflix Aiming To Release 90 Original Films In 2019

This year was a big year for Netflix. While they had released original films in the past, this was the year they went all-in, hoping to give typical studios a run for their money. While I’m not sure they’ve fully accomplished their goal (they’re still fighting for credibility on the prestige front, and the overall quality of their movies is still inconsistent at best), it’s clear they’re still working hard to get content out there. This is especially important since next year will see the launching of at least two big streaming contenders with Disney+ and whatever the hell WarnerMedia releases.

So, next year, it looks like the streaming giant will stay the course in terms of their feature film schedule. This year, they released around 80 original features, and they intend to up that to 90, a new report from The New York Times states. According to them, there will around 55 produced in-house (with some having budgets as high as $200 million), as well as a number of docs, animated films, and such, handled by others, that will bring the number higher than in 2018.

It may not sound like a lot, but for comparison, Universal releases around 30 films a year. Netflix may seem like the real underdog here, but in terms of resources and overall reach, they are by no means the little guy in this whole deal, which is a perspective worth keeping in mind.

What do you think of this? Is this continuous churning out of content the way to go for Netflix, or should they pull back and focus more on quality? Let us know your thoughts down below!
