Disney+ US Release Date Confirmed For November 12 And It Won’t Break The Bank

Disney+ US Release Date Confirmed For November 12 And It Won’t Break The Bank

While Netflix remains the biggest streaming service, delivering shows like Orange is the New Black, Stranger Things and Our Planet, it could have some competition as Disney sets to launch across the world.

People were pretty pissed when shows like The Punisher and Marvel movies were pulled from Netflix, but that was only so they could end up on Disney+.

There's been a lot of speculation about the service, but it's been confirmed to be released in America on November 12 and will only cost $6.99 (£5.34) per month. That's not too bad considering it'll be full of your favourite movies and TV shows.

Because of Disney's recent merger with Fox, it'll also mean all 30 seasons of The Simpsons will be there.

Not only that, but think of every Disney, Marvel, Pixar, Star Wars and National Geographic movie or TV show and it'll be on Disney+, according to Business Insider.

Disney is planning a whopping 25 original series and 10 movies and specials in the first year alone. The first goddamn year. After five years, the company wants to double that target and produce 50 original series a year.

The Micky Mouse brand has confirmed a Falcon and 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 happened if Peggy Carter was turned into a superhero instead of Chris Evans' Steve Rogers in Captain America'.

In addition to that, there will be two live-action projects about Loki and Hawkeye, as well as a whole series about a Star Wars bounty hunter called The Mandalorian.

According to the Metro, 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.

Americans have a couple of months before the streaming service gets released there, so they'll have plenty of time to work out if they can afford the £5.34 a month to watch everything they could ever want to watch. Sure, you'll still have to have a Netflix account but it'll be totally worth it.

There's no word on when it will end up in the UK and in other parts around the world, so we'll have to wait and see for more news.
