'Rio 3' Film in Development for Disney+

During the acquisition of Fox by Disney, Disney gained access to decades of intellectual property when it came to film and television and now Disney has been slowly adding Fox content to their streaming services and television channels with a renewed interest in several franchises to explore new stories with characters who are well established in media.
