Disney's streaming service to launch on November 12 in US

Launching on November 12, 2019, at $6.99 a month, Disney+ will be the ultimate streaming destination for movies and shows from Disney, Pixar, Marvel, Star Wars, and National Geographic.

The best news about this announcement for Nintendo fans is the company's intentions to eventually bring the application to the Switch. The service will be ad-free, supported exclusively by subscription fees, and will be available on gaming consoles, smart TV's, and connected streaming devices.

Disney did not confirm to the outlet how much a bundle subscription will cost.

High school principal dies after donating bone marrow to save stranger
Nelson underwent the procedure back in February after his bone marrow matched with a 14-year-old French boy who he had never met. At his final physical exam on January 21, however, that plan fell apart when Nelson was asked if he had sickle cell anemia.

To paraphrase a certain Agrabah magic carpet user, Disney+ is ready to show you a whole new world of streaming.

Subscribers will be able to download and stream content offline, as well as customize parental control settings and set up individual profiles for family members.

The entire Signature Collection (which includes animated classics like Bambi, The Lion King, and The Little Mermaid, ) will be available on the day of launch.

In the first year, Disney+ aims to offer up 7,500 television episodes and 500 films from the Disney library. After years of putting streaming in the back seat to protect its big-budget blockbusters and lucrative TV model, Disney has made streaming its top priority this year, even restructuring the company around it. Jon Favreau's The Mandalorian, the first ever live-action Star Wars series, will premiere on Disney+ at launch. 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 Disney+ news comes just weeks after Disney completed its acquisition of 21st Century Fox, and the streaming service closed out its presentation by announcing that a Fox staple, The Simpsons, will be coming to Disney+.
