Exclusive shows in development for Disney+ include Marvel series focused on Hawkeye, Loki, Scarlet Witch and Vision, and Falcon and Winter Solider; an animated Marvel show titled Marvel's What If...?
At the minute, there's a lot of talk about Disney+ destroying Netflix, and all the Netflix subscribers kicking the streaming service to the curb and signing up for Disney+, which launches on November 12, 2019. You know, in case you want to take a break from dying in Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice and enjoy something a bit more relaxing. In addition to Disney films and TV shows, it will feature programming from the Marvel superhero universe, the Star Wars galaxy, Toy Story creator Pixar animation and the National Geographic channel.
Disney + will bring all of Disney's content to one place, but how will it do in a world of YouTube and Netflix? I hear that some previous Simpsons episodes would likely still be on FXNow but, starting on November 12, the full library will only be available on Disney+. Disney also owns ESPN+ and a controlling stake in Hulu.
Disney promises that it will release more than 25 original series and 10 original films, documentaries, and specials within the first year. An entire creative team at Marvel Studios is dedicated to growing these Disney+ original titles, which Feige revealed more details about in his presentation.
Disney is raising the curtain on a hotly anticipated video steaming service that's aiming to topple industry pioneer Netflix, once a valuable ally. The return of animated series Star Wars: The Clone Wars will also be coming to Disney+.
Disney said that it will spend $1 billion in cash on original programming for Disney+ in 2020, with "just under" $1 billion for operating expenses. There will also be a live-action Lady and the Tramp, and a series based on High School Musical have been confirmed.
Disney+ will be a brand new pay-per-month service that hopes to rival Netflix in delivering brand new movies and series. No word yet on if others will be included or added later.
"These shows will be on the same level of quality that you've come to expect from Marvel Studios and we're taking advantage of the freedom offered by Disney+, exploring the MCU and our favorite characters over multiple episodes".
"The Simpsons" will head to the service, as well as movies and shows including "The Sound of Music" to "Malcolm in the Middle".
Yes, Disney+ will support offline viewing by allowing you to download movies and TV shows.
And it's not all about Star Wars.
