Disney+ Price, Release Date, & More Exciting Details Announced

Disney + unveils unscripted slate as it preps SVOD pitch to investors

The entertainment company finally unveiled its first look at its highly-anticipated streaming service, Disney+, on Thursday during an investor day event at its headquarters in Burbank, California. Now we know that Disney+ will drop on November 12th for $6.99 a month.

Executives said they see opportunities to take its ESPN+ sport streaming video service to Latin America and are looking into worldwide expansion of its Hulu streaming video business, which offers movies and shows targeted to adults.

Disney will also contend with a new streaming service from Apple, which is expected to be released in the fall.

The Mandalorian will be available to start streaming when Disney+ launches, and all Star Wars movies will be available to stream within the first year. Disney+ will essentially be the home of all of the company's various franchises, like Pixar, Star Wars, and Marvel, as well as National Geographic - which the company now owns following its recent acquisition of 21st Century Fox - all of which will have their own landing pages on the platform. A variety of Disney theatrical films, including "Pirates of the Caribbean" and "Mary Poppins", will added for launch day, with more coming within the first year. That is cheaper than rival Netflix, which charges $US13 per month for its most popular streaming plan, but the Disney service will have a narrower focus on family-friendly shows and movies.

(Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige teased that one episode will explore what might have happened if Peggy Carter was the one to become a super soldier, instead of Steve Rogers.) And just yesterday, the news broke that Disney+ is also developing a Hawkeye series with Jeremy Renner, centering on his mentor relationship with fellow archer Kate Bishop.

In its first year, Disney+ will have 25 original series and 10 original films, along with documentaries and specials, the company says. Stargirl, based on the best-selling book, will also be available.

In its annual Investor Day webcast, the company spoke in broad terms about its goal to bring its digital services to as many countries as possible. The show will be based on Luna's character, Cassian Andor. The series is reportedly set to follow stories of famed bounty hunters, Jango and Boba Fett, in the Star Wars universe.

"The Simpsons" will head to the service, as well as movies and shows including "The Sound of Music" to "Malcolm in the Middle".
