During today's presentation, the Company unveiled a first look at the Disney+ offering, which will launch in the USA on November 12, 2019 at $6.99 per month.

That is cheaper than rival Netflix, which charges US$13 per month for its most popular streaming plan. You can separate content by type (movies, shows, etc) or brand (Marvel, LucasFilm, Disney, National Geographic, etc).

Disney CEO Bob Iger and other executives unveiled new details about the upcoming streaming service during an investor presentation Thursday, teasing a mix of Disney archival classics and new original content.

Disney is developing numerous new TV shows and films based on some of the studio's most beloved brands, including Star Wars, Pixar, and Marvel.

Still, beyond those can't-miss projects, much of the intrigue surrounding the Mouse House's future revolves around its plans to introduce a streaming service this year, Disney+, as the major studios seek to fortify their positions against the challenge posed by Netflix as well as tech giants like Amazon, Google and most recently Apple in the content space. Disney is flexing pretty hard right now with all of these announcements and it's going to be insane when they finally release their streaming service later this year.

Disney Plus will be able to draw upon a library of revered films dating back several decades while it also produces original programming.

Additionally, movies that came out in 2019, and going forward, will be streamed exclusively on Disney Plus. This is all on top of more than 7500 TV show episodes and more than 500 blockbuster movies, according to Disney.

Following its U.S debut, Disney+ will rapidly expand globally, with plans to be in almost all major regions of the world within the next two years. Of course, Disney had its own talent on hand, including Favreau, who discussed The Mandalorian and introduced a clip for the new Lion King, which he directed.

By hour three, when Agnes Chu, senior vice president of content at Disney+, boldly stated that Disney+ is "the only streaming service that at its foundation has this breadth of storytelling for a global audience", it was hard not to agree. New and current Marvel cast members will be lending their voices to the series, which means even if you will no longer see them on the MCU, you can see them reprise their roles in animated form.

The Simpsons will also join Disney+: The first 30 seasons of The Simpsons will also be available on Disney+ on launch day. That's a whopping amount of content, and the library is only expected to grow year over year.
