Imagine being able to watch your favorite Disney movies and TV shows whenever you feel like it… that seriously seems like it’s too good to be true, right? Well guys, that’s about to become a reality because the network is preparing to release its own streaming service — Disney+ — and we’re freaking out! We’ve gone ahead and rounded up all the deets on the new streaming service, and here’s everything we know so far:
How will it work?
OK, so think Netflix or Hulu, but with all of our fave Disney TV shows and movies! That’s right, for a small fee, you’ll be able to stream them all at your finger tips, wherever and whenever.
When will it be available?
Mark your calendars, guys, because Disney+ launches on November 12, 2019! That means we’re only a few months away, and we seriously cannot wait.
How much will it cost?
You’ll be able to watch all your favorite movies and TV shows for only $6.99 a month. Or, you can pay $69.99 for a year, which comes out to $5.83 per month.
What movies will be on it?
“At some point fairly soon after launch, it will house the entire Disney motion picture library,” CEO Bob Iger told Vulture. “So the movies that traditionally have been kept in a vault and brought out basically every few years will be on the service.”
Yep, that means exactly what you think it means. All the old animated classics, like The Little Mermaid, The Lion King, Aladdin, Beauty And The Beast, Frozen, Moana and more will all be available! This is, like, the best news ever, especially considering those movies aren’t streamed anywhere at the moment.
It’s also been confirmed that all new Disney live-action and animated movies, including this year’s remake of Dumbo, Aladdin, The Lion King, Toy Story 4 and Frozen 2, of course, will be available through the site. But unlike Netflix, the movies will premiere in theaters first, before making their way to the online service. Bob added to Vulture that the new movies will be available “within a year” of their release.
And that’s not all. All of the classic Disney Channel Original Movies, like High School Musical, the Lizzie McGuire Movie, Cadet Kelly, Descendants and more will be available! Wow, goodbye to our social life.
As for you Star Wars fans, Disney also confirmed that starting with Star Wars: Episode IX, all of the upcoming films from the series will be available. Plus, two new spinoff series called The Mandalorian and Cassian Andor will premiere on the Disney+.
Plus, Fox’s The Simpsons is also coming to Disney+! The first 30 seasons of the classic animated TV show will be available to stream on the new service. An animated series based on Pixar’s Monsters Inc. will also premiere on the streaming service. And get this — they’re even making a new High School Musical spinoff show that you’ll only be able to watch on Disney+! It’ll star Sofia Wylie, Olivia Rodrigo, Joshua Bassett and more. We’re seriously freaking out!
The network also revealed that they’ll offer over 250 films and documentaries from National Geographic on the new streaming service. Yeah, it sounds pretty epic and we could not be more excited. Can it be November already?!
