Everything We Know So Far About Disney+, Disney’s Upcoming Streaming Service

Disney is getting ready to roll out its own streaming video service this November. Here’s what we know so far:

What’s it called?

It’s called Disney+.

When does it launch?

The service will launch on November 12, 2019.

How much will it cost?

Subscribers will have to pay $6.99 per month to subscribe to the service. There is also an annual service option that will be available for $69.99 per year.

Is it kid friendly?

Yes. In fact, there will be no R-rater movies allowed on the service.

What will it look like?

Here’s some images Disney released of the service:

What movies will be on the service?

Every Disney animated movie from the Disney vault will be on the service, as well as most of Disney’s live-action movies, most Disney Channel series, every single Disney Channel Original Movies, and the complete Pixar library. Disney+ will also be the home of all future Disney theatrical movie releases (The Lion King remake, for example).

Will Disney shows stay on Netflix?

No. Netflix has already canceled shows like Iron Fist, Luke Cage, and Daredevil. Disney eventually will be pulling all of its animated and live-action films from Netflix, including all movies from the Marvel Cinematic Universe and all Star Wars movies.

Which Marvel Movies have been announced for Disney+?

Captain Marvel, Iron Man, Iron Man 2, and Thor: The Dark World will be available when Disney+ launches. Disney+ will also be the exclusive streaming home for Avengers: Endgame.

What about the Disney/Fox merger?

Disney+ will be the exclusive destination for all 30 seasons of The Simpsons.

Any Exclusive Marvel Movies?

Yes, Disney has already announced a limited series for Loki (played by Tom Hiddleston). The mini-series is expected to be about eight episodes long. A series starring Falcon (played by Anthony Mackie) and Bucky Barnes (played by Sebastian Stan) has already been announced, too. It’s called Falcon and the Winter Soldier. A Scarlet Witch series, called WandaVision, has also been confirmed. If all goes well, and it should, expect even more from the Marvel universe.

What About Star Wars?

Jon Favreau is producing an all-new series for the streaming service called The Mandalorian. Favreau described it, “After the stories of Jango and Boba Fett, another warrior emerges in the Star Wars universe. The Mandalorian is set after the fall of the Empire and before the emergence of the First Order.”

Disney has also revealed that Cassian Andor from Rogue One (played by Diego Luna) will also be getting his own series. It will be a prequel series set before the events of Rogue One that will show the back story of the Rebel spy. Disney has also confirmed that K-2S0 will also be back!

Disney is also working on a new season of the hit animated show, The Clone Wars.

How Can This Get Any Better?

Welp, Disney has also announced that they are working on live action remakes of both Lady and the Tramp and The Sword and the Stone. Both of these exclusive live-action reboots will come straight to Disney+ with no theatrical release.

Disney has also announced they are introducing a new series called Monsters at Work, which is based on Monsters, Inc. The vocals of John Goodman and Billy Crystal are also returning for the series. There is also talk of reboots of The Mighty Ducks, The Muppets, Father of the Bride, The Parent Trap, and Honey, I Shrunk the Kids.

Overall, if you’re a Disney, Star Wars, or Marvel fan (or all three???), this is going to be a great deal for only $6.99 a month. We look forward to it’s launch this November.
