Stan Lee Documentary To Be Released On Disney+
The Stan Lee documentary will be produced by Lee’s daughter J.C. Lee, with Gil Champion and Keith Sharon serving as co-producers.
The documentary will cover the life of Stan Lee, who was known for co-creating iconic comic book characters like Spider-Man and Iron Man, among others. He died in November 2018 at the age of 95 after battling pneumonia and other ailments related to old age.
The film will be released on Disney+ in 2023 and is being made by a Disney owned company called Valhalla Entertainment that has made films about celebrities such as Muhammad Ali and Frank Sinatra before now.
This is a big deal for Disney, which is making a lot of moves into the streaming space. The company announced earlier this week that it will launch its own streaming service in 2019, taking on Netflix and others in the battle to become the go-to home for family viewing.
This documentary takes a look at Stan Lee’s life before he became an icon, and how his career has impacted modern pop culture. It will be interesting to see how much footage from these early days makes its way into this production!
