On April 11, the Walt Disney Company revealed their new streaming service, Disney+ on their Investor Day Webcast and on their website. That’s right Disney, one of the most successful companies in the entertainment industry made a streaming service that will not only be cheaper than Netflix’s $12.99 monthly service but will have more possibly more to watch also.
Disney+ is coming out in the U.S. on November 12. 2019 at $6.99 a month. That’s half the price of Netflix, Hulu, and Amazon’s standard $12.99 a month. Best of all it will have around 7,500 television shows and 500 films from the past and present.
The service will include some popular entertainment brands such as Pixar, Marvel, Star Wars and National Geographic , and even Fox. In fact, it’s announced that all 30 seasons of The Simpsons will be available on the service on day one. Additionally, you can also expect to see the entire Star Wars franchise including any animated series’, all current Marvel films especially if they are related to the current MCU, all Disney films which include the Disney Channel movies, and many National Geographic documentaries.
These studies have also announced their own Disney+ originals which include many Toy Story-based projects, Into the Unknown: Making Frozen 2, The Phineas and Ferb Movie (working title), The Falcon and The Winter Soldier and Marvel’s What If…?.
While these new titles are joining in, titles announced before are also joining in. Notable films include The Mandalorian a live-action series featuring Boba Fett; High School Musical: The Musical: The Series (great title by the way); and a live-action Lady and the Tramp.
Available on All Platforms
It is stated that “The Disney+ service will be available on a wide range of mobile and connected devices…” These will include the Xbox One, Playstation 4, and the Nintendo Switch. This would mean that the service is all set for competing with Netflix, Hulu, and Amazon.
As Disney+ will only be available in the U.S. on day one, Disney wants it to “be in nearly all major regions of the world within the next two years.” Hopefully, Disney+ will be available to all sooner after release. In the meantime, fans in America can look forward to enjoying several of their favorite films on November 12, 2019.
