Disney+ has been able to generate plenty of hype leading up to its November 12 launch date and that continued on Friday, August 23. To continue building the anticipation for the new streaming service — which will feature projects from Pixar, the Marvel Universe, Star Wars, and National Geographic — Disney+ announced its launch day lineup.
Among the titles that will be coming to Disney+ on November 12 are the first-ever Star Wars series, The Mandalorian, the live-action Lady and the Tramp, High School Musical: The Musical: The Series and The World According to Jeff Goldblum.
The announcement comes prior to the Disney+ panel at D23 Expo, currently being held in Anaheim, California.
You can check out the posters from the upcoming titles below.
Below is additional information on the package information for the Disney+ service.
Disney+, Hulu, & ESPN+ Package Info
During a stock market earnings call on Tuesday, which showed the entertainment conglomerate going down in quarter three (Q3), Disney CEO Bob Iger announced a bundle package of the company’s three streaming services: ESPN+, Hulu (which is ad-supported), and the upcoming Disney+ service all bundled for $12.99 per month. This fantastic bundle will be available immediately after the launch of Disney+, which scheduled for a November 12th release. If you didn’t know, Disney acquired the full operational take over of Hulu back in May.
Members of D23, Disney’s fan club, will be able to sign up for Disney+ earlier than non-members. Without the use of the bundle, Disney+ will cost $6.99 per month or $69.99 per year. Hulu (again, with ads) is already available for $5.99 per month, while ESPN+ costs $4.99 per month.
The bundle of all three streaming services, which is $12.99 per month, is Disney’s attempt of getting into this highly competitive (and ever-growing) streaming industry. The company’s direct competition monthly cost goes for $12.99 per month for both Netflix and Amazon Video (which is included with your Amazon Prime subscription). The monthly cost of upcoming streaming services HBO Max and Apple TV Plus has not yet been announced. However, it has been reported that Warner Brothers Media plans to have HBO Max cost $16-$17 per month. From what we can tell so far is that Disney’s bundled streaming service programs, at $12.99 per month, seems to be the deal for your dollar.
