Disney+ Streaming Service Is Officially Coming To Australia And New Zealand In November
When Disney announced it was giving people a new streaming service to enjoy, it only mentioned its American customers.
Well, after months of waiting, Australia and New Zealand have been gifted with the news that Disney+ is coming to our shores in November. While that might be music to people's ears, it's unclear what it will mean exactly in the Foxtel and Stan realms.
According to 7News.com.au, there are already loads of Disney titles on those two streaming platforms, so it's not certain whether they'll be removed and uploaded to Disney+ or left alone.
The Mickey Mouse corporation did the former with anything that was on Netflix, deleting the likes of The Punisher, Avengers, Jessica Jones, Luke Cage and other titles to later put them on their own service. Makes sense really.
When Disney+ lands in Australia and New Zealand, people will have to fork out $8.99 per month or $89.99 per year - which isn't too bad.
The only thing that will be tough to weigh up is whether it'll be worth it if you already have a Stan, Netflix and Foxtel account.
That means you're paying nearly three figures a month for endless options.
Disney+ will be full of your favourite movies and TV shows - 7,500 television episodes and 500 films from the Disney catalogue, to be exact, including all 30 seasons of The Simpsons.
And if you're keen for some more nostalgia, Disney announced last week that customers will be able to watch every single Pixar short as part of the package - which is surely worth the subscription fee alone.
But as well as classics, the Micky Mouse brand also confirmed a Falcon and the Winter Soldier series will be produced, along with WandaVision, which will focus on Scarlet Witch and Vision's story arc.
There's a strange sounding What If? series being planned by the Marvel guys, which looks into alternate realities of the movies we all know and love. One of those is 'what if Peggy Carter was turned into a superhero instead of Chris Evans' Steve Rogers in Captain America...?'.
If that wasn't enough, Disney also confirmed there will be live-action projects about Loki and Hawkeye, as well as a whole series about a Star Wars bounty hunter called The Mandalorian.
Other works being planned include: a Monsters Inc. TV show called Monsters at Work, Diary of a Female President, High School Musical: The Musical, Ink & Paint, Star Wars: The Clone Wars and a prequel series based on the Rogue One movie.
