Just when you thought that Lion King trailer would be Disney's biggest reveal of the week, the company topped itself on Thursday by announcing a launch date for its much-anticipated streaming service. All content will be downloadable from the platform.
Disney Plus will roll out in the USA on November 12 at a price of $6.99 per month, or $69.99 per year.
Captain Marvel will be available on day one of the subscription streaming service's launch, and so will Disney's entire Signature Collection. A new short called Lamp Life, featuring Toy Story's Bo Peep, will also be available on Disney+. If that wasn't enough, Disney+ will also have a Frozen 2 behind-the-scenes documentary. It's also logical to assume that more upcoming Star Wars movies, like the Rian Johnson trilogy and the film series being worked on by David Benioff and D.B. Weiss, will be thrown onto Disney+ after their theatrical runs have ended.
Saudi Aramco Strikes Cash as Bond Demand Tops Record $85 Bln
Ahead of the bond issue, Aramco revealed its accounts to global ratings agencies for the first time ever. And later in the bond market itself, where the Saudi government successfully raised debt this year.
In the first year, Disney+ aims to offer up 7,500 television episodes and 500 films from the Disney library.
Star Wars fans will be excited to know that all of the Star Wars movie will roll out on Disney+ within the first year of launch.
Elsewhere in the Star Wars universe, Disney+ is launching a series in 2021 about Diego Luna's Rogue One character, Cassian Andor, with Alan Tudyk reprising his role as the voice of the droid K2-SO.
Noelle is a holiday comedy starring Anna Kendrick and Bill Hader that will premiere exclusively on Disney+ sometime after launch. All 30 seasons of the long-running animated show will be available to stream, as soon as the service launches.
