They have Newsies on their and I believe the reason why they filmed Aladdin was to put it on their. Also assume the current west end revival of Mary Poppins will be to film it once it closes or when the current cast leaves. This might be hopeful, but I think they should think about remounting a production of hunchback just for the purpose of filming it. Or they could do it similarly to how Spongebob is going about it.
Disney now has their own platform to spread their stage works even further and I hope they use it.

Yes. Expect a filming of Sister Act to happen and the "secret" revival of Beauty and the Beast is also happening for this purpose (hence why it won't happen on Broadway).

This secret revival- is it the one discussed earlier, rewritten to be a Finding Nemo-style multimedia spectacular with puppets rather than actors in increasingly elaborate costumes?

I remember there being an announcement a few months ago about a planned Broadway revival of BATB, is that still in the works at all?

BATB revival is happening - but from what I heard its a Broadway revival. Not sure about filming though.

Also, wondering if the current run of Mary Poppins in London will get filmed.

How about a revival of Tarzan in Germany with Josh Strickland again and a bilingual cast? They can perform it in German and film it in English for Disney+.
