Disney+ reveals launch date and pricing for new streaming service
12 April 2019, 10:13 | Elsie Buchanan
Disney’s new streaming service Disney+ is reportedly set to launch this November
A lot was covered during the almost 3-hour presentation, so let's dive in on everything you need to know. Content will be divided into five brands: Disney (animation and live action), Pixar, Marvel, Star Wars, and National Geographic.
Disney Plus will roll out in the US on November 12 at a price of $6.99 per month, or $69.99 per year. All content can be downloaded for offline viewing, and the service will be available for smartphones and tablets, desktop browsers, game consoles, and smart TVs. All episodes of The Simpsons will be on the platform from the first day, and episodes of Malcolm in the Middle will also be available. As it stands, some of Hulu's original series are already on Canadian streaming services, such as the filmed-in-Toronto The Handmaid's Tale, which is available on Bell's Crave platform.
They aren't the only superheroes getting their own shows: Anthony Mackie and Sebastian Stan will team up in a new series, The Falcon and The Winter Soldier. To make the leap, Disney ended a lucrative licensing relationship with Netflix, which had become the video streaming home for its latest films after their theatrical release, as well as many of its TV series and classic movies.
In addition to the photorealistic retelling of The Lion King, director Jon Favreau has also been working on an original Star Wars series titled The Mandalorian, which will be available on day one of the service.
The entire Disney Classic animated movie collection will be available at launch: This is the news that Disney nerds care about the most. Those titles, along with the previously announced Loki series starring Tom Hiddleston, will be available within the first year of launch of the streaming service.
The presentation included big news for Marvel fans, who can expect to see Elizabeth Olsen and Paul Bettany reprising their roles as Wanda Maximoff and The Vision in the Disney+ series, WandaVision.
Walt Disney Co priced its highly anticipated streaming video service below Netflix in an aggressive move to challenge the dominant streaming service and entice families to buy yet another monthly subscription. Each of the Marvel Studios produced live-action series will run between six and eight episodes. Disney also owns a controlling stake in streaming service Hulu. To celebrate the upcoming Frozen 2, a first-of-its-kind documentary series called Into the Unknown: Making Frozen 2 will feature behind-the-scenes looks at the film. The show will be based on Luna's character, Cassian Andor.
The interface reminds us of a mixture of Apple TV and Netflix.
Barr Has A 'Team' Looking Into The Mueller Investigation
Now, the objective is to create a cloud of suspicion around Barr which, I guess, will cast doubt on the Mueller report. Barr said he did not believe the evidence in the report was sufficient to prove the president had obstructed justice.
Michael Avenatti Charged With… A Whole Bunch MORE Stuff
The case is separate from another involving Nike that says Avenatti tried to extort $20 million from the sportswear giant. Cohen pleaded guilty and is set to report to prison next month, and Avenatti and Daniels have parted ways.
