First Picture Released Of Disney+ Streaming Service

Entertainment giant Disney has released the first image of its streaming service, the conveniently-named Disney+, which looks set to rival the likes of Netflix and Amazon.

Film producer Ricky Strauss unveiled the very first photograph of how the new service will look, showing options for Marvel, Star Wars, Disney classics and Pixar films.

The movie magnate posted the pic to his Instagram page with the caption: "First look at our new app! #Disneyplus launching November 12, 2019."

Chief technology officer Aaron LaBerge also shared a video to his account, showing how it will look for viewers. He posted the clip with the caption: "It's kinda fun to invent the future. #DisneyPlus #TeamDisney #ToInfinityAndBeyond."

Fans have been waiting a long time for this moment and were quick to share their excitement.

One person commented: "Sign me up!!"

While another added: "Could charge 2x what you're charging."

There's been a lot of speculation about the service, but it's been confirmed to be released in America on 12 November 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 - 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 night 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 Winter 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 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 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.
