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 Disney 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?
As of now, Disney has unfortunately not given a release date, but they did confirm that it will become available in 2019. That narrows it down to sometime in the next 10 months, LOL. Well, even though we don’t know when exactly it’s coming, the important fact is that it is indeed happening. Guess we’ll just have to wait and see!
How much will it cost?
Disney hasn’t announced the pricing for its streaming service yet either, but you can explained back in November of 2017 that his Disney’s service price will be “substantially less” than Netflix’s price because it will be “reflective of the fact that it will have substantially less volume.” But don’t worry guys, he added that although they plan to have less content than Netflix, they’re going to make up for it with high-quality programming.Disney CEO Bob Iger
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 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, and Toy Story 4, 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.
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+.
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!
Yeah, it sounds pretty epic and we could not be more excited. Can they announce more already?!
