Disney Streaming Service Reveals Full Lineup of Marvel Series

Disney Streaming Service Reveals Full Lineup of Marvel Series

But Disney quietly revealed a first look at the logo for the first Star Wars live-action TV series The Mandalorian, a first look at the upcoming live-action Lady and the Tramp, and confirmation of Marvel's Falcon & Winter Soldier series as part of their Disney+ presentation.

We finally have some information about the highly anticipated Disney streaming service.

Disney+ will feature hundreds of titles from not only Disney, but other brands they own such as Pixar, Marvel, Lucas Film, and their newest acquisition 21st Century Fox which includes National Geographic.

Details about Disney+ were shared by executives at an annual investor day, where chief executive Bob Iger said the streaming service would combine the strengths of Disney and the assets acquired from Fox.

The service's entire lineup will cover five categories: Disney, Pixar, Marvel, Star Wars and National Geographic. The big news is that it will indeed be priced lower than Netflix at $6.99 and it will launch in the USA market on November 12, 2019.

"Disney+ marks a bold step forward in an exciting new era for our company-one in which consumers will have a direct connection to the incredible array of creative content that is The Walt Disney Company's hallmark".

Disney+ will also be available on a wide range of mobile and connected devices, including gaming consoles, streaming media players and smart TVs.

- Big spending on shows - Disney will invest heavily in the new streaming service, which is not expected to become profitable until 2024, chief financial officer Christine McCarthy told investors.

What do you think about The Simpsons coming exclusively to Disney Plus?

"Netflix's content balance act continues to appear precarious", says Michael Pachter, analyst at Wedbush Securities.

Netflix and Amazon spend billions of dollars on original content for their rival streaming television services, hoping to win viewer loyalty with must-watch films or shows. A monthly subscription will cost $6.99.

Disney+ will launch "with a robust library of theatrical and television content" and will release more than 25 original series and 10 original films, documentaries and specials in its first year, according to the company.

It's also expected that the streaming service will eventually bundle Disney+ with Hulu and ESPN+ for users around the world, offering another pair of popular services that are now only available to Americans.

Although Disney has an enviable track record of producing shows and films that attract huge audiences, its attempt to build its own Netflix is risky.
