Walt Disney Animation Studios • Into the Unknown: Making Frozen 2 documentary series showing the hard work and imagination that go into making one of Disney's most highly-anticipated features.
Disney+ is set to sport a variety of new content including four new Marvel TV shows alongside a live action Star Wars TV show called The Mandalorian.
After all, at just $6.99 per month or $69.99 per year - or just above half the $13 per month Netflix (NASDAQ: NFLX) is now charging for its most popular plan - it's obvious the House of Mouse wants consumers to view Disney+ as a relative bargain to other video-streaming services when it launches this November.
Netflix is racing to commission its own programming to fill the looming void: it is focusing more than 85% of new spending on original content, and is expected to spend as much as $15bn on making and licensing film and TV shows this year.More news: Paris' Notre Dame Cathedral on fire - firefighters
"We believe Netflix can not win" such a war because of Disney's cost advantage from owning a vast amount of content. Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige was onhand to tease Marvel's offerings on the TV side, which mark new territory as previous Marvel TV projects (like the Netflix shows and Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.) were handled by Marvel Television's Jeph Loeb. They will be taking advantage of that creative freedom that Disney+ offers exploring the MCU, the Marvel Cinematic Universe, with our favourite characters over multiple episodes.
Tuna Amobi of CFRA Research said Disney+ will launch with "an unparalleled array of branded TV/film content" and as a result "could be a potential game-changer in a rapidly evolving streaming landscape".
Previously announced non-fiction series include Be Our Chef, Cinema Relics: Iconic Art of the Movies (working title), Earthkeepers (working title), Encore! In the service's first year, audiences will also have access to family-friendly Fox titles like The Sound of Music, The Princess Bride and Malcolm in the Middle as part of an impressive collection of more than 7,500 television episodes and 500 films including blockbuster hits from 2019 and beyond.
"We're extremely excited about our growing portfolio of direct-to-consumer offerings", said Kevin Mayer, Disney's chairman of direct-to-consumer and global content.More news: Microsoft Confirms Hackers Could Read Outlook, MSN and Hotmail Emails
But now movies that came out in 2019, and going forward, will be streamed only on Disney Plus. Users will have the ability to create custom provides where they'll receive personalized recommendations based on past experiences and preferences.
The new service's subscriptions are due to start at $6.99 per month - less than streaming leader Netflix's most basic $8.99 plan. An unprecedented amount of content will also be available to fans for offline viewing.
It'll be available in the United States on November 12, 2019 and it's expected to drop in Canada shortly after. His reaction, however, isn't as revealing as you might think.
