Viewers have been waiting patiently for Disney to drop more information on their highly anticipated new streaming service. Last year, the production giant released information that they would be releasing their own streaming service and we've been waiting on the edge of our seats ever since. It was just announced that Disney's new streaming service is launching this fall.
Like Netflix and Hulu, Disney has decided to get into the streaming game and we're definitely excited about it. As we all know, Disney has been historically one of the largest and most influential production companies in the entire world, so we have a feeling their streaming service will be top notch.
Last night, Disney tweeted out a teaser that gave away info on what will be on the streaming service and when it'll officially drop!
It all starts on November 12. For more info: https://t.co/RD04P7jdAT #DisneyPlus https://t.co/M1QI7qkH5p— Disney (@Disney)1555027857.0
In year one, you'll be able to rediscover more than 7,500 episodes and 500 films from our library on #DisneyPlus.— Disney (@Disney)1555026878.0
In the teaser that Disney posted to Twitter, we find out that Marvel, Pixar, Star Wars, and National Geographic shows and films will be included on the platform. In the teaser click, all of those names flash across the screen!
Here's the scoop on everything we know about Disney's new streaming service.
The streaming service will launch on November 12, 2019 in the U.S. market. Disney+ will cost $6.99 per month and will be available for viewing on connected TV and mobile devices, similar to Netflix.
Disney+ will have films and tv shows on their platform. They're also claiming that they will release more than 25 original series and 10 original films, documentaries and specials in its first year after launch.
Disney announced a ton of shows and movies that will be available on the platform. To name a few, many Star Wars films will be available, Monsters at Work and classics like The Sound of Music and The Princess Bride. They'll even have our cult favourites like Malcolm in the Middle and all 30 seasons of The Simpsons.
Don't worry if you're Canadian, Disney confirms that Disney+ will launch "globally rapidly and they're planning to be in all major regions of the world within the next two years."
