Disney Plus Release Date, Price, & Day One Content Officially Revealed

Disney Plus Release Date, Price, & Day One Content Officially Revealed

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

Disney's Investors Day is today and with the exciting occasion brings news regarding the Disney Plus streaming service. Now titled Disney+, the service will give subscribers exclusive, ad-free access to highlights from the Disney vault, as well as original films and TV shows that won't be available anywhere else.

Disney+ will allow downloading, meaning all content from the service will be accessible offline.

Just in time for the holidays, Disney+ will launch globally on November 12 at an initial subscription price of $6.99 per month - or discounted offering of $69.99 per year.

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.


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. All Pixar films will be available on the first year of launch, with theatrical shorts, including the Oscar-winning Bao, watchable at launch.

Episode IX not being available at the get-go makes sense, as Disney+ will be launching before the movie even hits theaters.

Star Wars fans will be excited to know that all of the Star Wars movie will roll out on Disney+ within the first year of launch.

Noelle is a holiday comedy starring Anna Kendrick and Bill Hader that will premiere exclusively on Disney+ sometime after launch.

For more on Disney+, be sure to check out the links below and stay tuned through Stars Wars Celebration for more news on The Mandalorian and more. Timmy Failure, based on the book series by the same name, will also be coming to the streamer from Academy Award-winning director Tom McCarthy. The company also recently acquired 21st Century Fox, which means it can now develop content based on such franchises as Avatar, The Simpsons and the X-Men.
