  • Disney + unveils unscripted slate as it preps SVOD pitch to investors

Disney released first look images at the app with the news the cost will be $6.99/month or $69.99 a year ($5.83 a month) launching on November 12.

Executives said they see opportunities to take its ESPN+ sport streaming video service to Latin America and are looking into global expansion of its Hulu streaming video business, which offers movies and shows targeted to adults.

Content created exclusively for the service will also be available.

Also available at the start will be 18 Pixar movies and every one of their theatrical shorts, as well as numerous Star Wars movies.

Disney+ will become available to subscribers in the United States on Tuesday, Nov. 12. That is cheaper than rival Netflix, which charges $US13 per month for its most popular streaming plan, but the Disney service will have a narrower focus on family-friendly shows and movies.

Disney fans, prepare yourselves for an onslaught of exciting new (and nostalgic) content.

Within the first year of launch, which begins on November 12, audiences can have access to Disney's entire Pixar film collection, as well as Marvel's most recent superhero release Captain Marvel and many more of the studios popular films.
