Disney+ to launch in November, priced at $6.99 monthly

Disney is finally ready to unveil its streaming service. What we know and what we don't

Disney+ makes its long-awaited debut later this year, bringing with it a slew of new original programming that includes a handful of shows set in the MCU.

The studio first announced back in 2017 that it would be ending licensing deals with streamers like Netflix and launching its own branded streaming service. In addition, Disney+ will allow downloading, so all content from the service can be accessed offline, for as long as you're a subscriber.

However, the big feature of the Disney+ streaming platform is Disney's "Signature Collection", which features all of their old classic movies and new titles, like the live-action Lady and the Tramp movie, which features the voices of Tessa Thompson and Justin Theroux. Projects already in the works include a Monsters Inc. spin-off series, a The Sandlot TV series, and many new Marvel projects. That's not all though, an exciting first look at the Disney Plus user interface gives fans a peek at the Day One content they will be able to indulge in.

EU offers to extend Brexit deadline to Halloween
Many leaders said they were inclined to grant a Brexit delay , though Mr Macron had reservations after hearing Mrs May speak. And she stressed that "allowing people to decide if they still want to leave is now imperative".

Additionally, movies that came out in 2019, and going forward, will be streamed exclusively on Disney Plus.

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. An additional animated show - titled What If. - will imagine what the Marvel Universe would be like if events in the franchise's tentpole films had turned out differently. One of their offerings is an anthology series focusing on Marvel's impact over the last several decades.

In addition to Disney+, the company is looking to bring its ESPN+ and Hulu services to more countries outside of the USA, although it's unclear if that includes Canada. If that wasn't enough, Disney+ will also have a Frozen 2 behind-the-scenes documentary.
