Disney unveils first look at its new streaming service

Disney+ Confirms Vision and Scarlet Witch, What If?, And More Marvel Shows

Disney+ Confirms Vision and Scarlet Witch, What If?, And More Marvel Shows

A bevy of details about what to expected from Disney's highly anticipated streaming service Disney+ were released yesterday, including a number of tidbits from Marvel.

The new service, which will launch in the fall, is being priced very aggressively. (Netflix does have a $8.99 basic plan, but you can only watch on one screen at a time.) Customers can save by purchasing an annual plan for $69.99, or $5.83 a month.

There's plenty to be excited about ahead of the streaming service's November launch and Disney promises that it will rapidly expand globally following its US debut. A monthly subscription will cost $6.99.

The media-entertainment colossus announced its Disney+ streaming service would launch in November in the United States and gradually expand internationally. That's significantly less than the $12.99 standard plan on Netflix.

Infinity War killed all of the characters that are all getting new shows on Disney+. But Disney quietly revealed a first look at the logo for the first Star Wars live-action TV series The Mandalorian, a first look at the upcoming live-action Lady and the Tramp, and confirmation of Marvel's Falcon & Winter Soldier series as part of their Disney+ presentation.

What original content will subscribers get?

One of the most exciting announcements made today is that within the first year, Disney+ will release more than 25 original series and 10 original movies, specials, and documentaries.

"We wonder how the company will explain what is and is not available on Disney+ both domestically and overseas", Greenfield said in a research note.

Thus far, Disney+ has announced Loki, starring Tom Hiddleston, Falcon & Winter Soldier with Anthony Mackie and Sebastian Stan, WandaVision (that's the name!) with Elizabeth Olsen and Paul Bettany, and an animated What If? show centered around alternate versions of classic Marvel stories.

It'll be available in the United States on November 12, 2019 and it's expected to drop in Canada shortly after.

A "robust library of theatrical and television content" will be available when Disney+ first launches, but the company is promising plenty of additions in the first year.

Disney+ will be packed with blockbuster movies and TV shows from the Disney library, including its recently acquired assets from 21st Century Fox. Subscribers will be able to stream all 30 seasons of The Simpsons when the service launches, along with episodes of Malcolm in the Middle, Kim Possible, and That's So Raven. 2019 Disney Universe films such as "The Lion King", "Avengers: End Game", and "Star Wars: Episode IX" will be streaming exclusively on Disney+ after their theater run.
