Disney's streaming service to launch on November 12 in US

Some of the confirmed Disney+ originals so far are a Loki show featuring Tom Hiddleston's eponymous villainous from the Marvel Cinematic Universe, a Rogue One: A Star Wars Story prequel series starring Diego Luna's Cassian Andor and a Monsters, Inc. sequel series that includes Billy Crystal's Mike Wazowski and John Goodman's James P. Sullivan.

The best news about this announcement for Nintendo fans is the company's intentions to eventually bring the application to the Switch. In addition, Disney+ will allow downloading, so all content from the service can be accessed offline, for as long as you're a subscriber. A monthly subscription will cost $6.99 a month, with an annual subscription set at $69.99. Disney is flexing pretty hard right now with all of these announcements and it's going to be insane when they finally release their streaming service later this year.

To paraphrase a certain Agrabah magic carpet user, Disney+ is ready to show you a whole new world of streaming.

During an investors briefing, Disney officially revealed its new digital streaming service Disney+, due out on 12th November this year.

The series will debut Into the Unknown: Making Frozen 2, a documentary that goes captures the behind-the-scenes process of making the animated film. All Pixar films will be available on the first year of launch, with theatrical shorts, including the Oscar-winning Bao, watchable at launch.

The Disney+ news comes just weeks after Disney completed its acquisition of 21st Century Fox, and the streaming service closed out its presentation by announcing that a Fox staple, The Simpsons, will be coming to Disney+.

Noelle is a holiday comedy starring Anna Kendrick and Bill Hader that will premiere exclusively on Disney+ sometime after launch.

Disney Plus will focus on family-friendly content, including a live action Star Wars series.
