Disney has not announced a Queen Elizabeth II movie
Social media posts claim Disney has announced a new movie about Queen Elizabeth II. This is false; the photo shared online comes from the AMC+ series "Anne Boleyn," and the Walt Disney Company, as of September 13, 2022 has made no such announcement.
"Disney announces movie about the Queen Elizabeth II," says a September 12, 2022 Facebook post with more than 4,000 likes.
Similarly, claims of a new Queen Elizabeth II movie produced by Disney are inaccurate.
On the same day as the queen's death, several new titles premiered on Disney's streaming platform. But none of them are about Elizabeth, and AFP could find no evidence that the entertainment company has announced such a film.
AFP reached out to Disney for comment, but a response was not forthcoming.
