  • Disney confirms its Disney+ streaming service will eventually launch globally

Would you like to see Disney's streaming service released on the Nintendo Switch? A monthly subscription will cost $6.99 a month, with an annual subscription set at $69.99.

Just before Disney+ launches in November, the company will blow up the Disney Vault.

There's also the issue of whether Disney and other studios will divert projects that would have played on and benefited other studio-owned assets - such as networks like ABC, Disney Channel and Freeform - to feed the streaming operation.

The streaming service will offer a large selection of Disney library content as well as new original movies and TV series created specifically for Disney+. This original content will come from 'some of the industry's most prolific and creative storytellers, ' the company said.

Disney+ will host a series of Pixar shorts called Forky Asks A Question, based on the new character in Toy Story 4, available on Day 1 of the launch. It will also have all the shows and movies from Disney's Marvel, Star Wars, and Pixar properties, along with original shows for each franchise.

The only episode of The Simpsons that won't be on Disney+ is the season 3 episode "Stark Raving Dad" due to the renewed controversy over guest star Michael Jackson in the wake of the Leaving Neverland documentary. As a result, a previous report stated that Disney+ will launch with 500 films from the Disney library along with over 7,000 episodes from Disney TV.

Disney Plus will focus on family-friendly content, including a live action Star Wars series. Everything won't be ready to watch on day one of Disney+, but there will be more than enough content available. One of the biggest dilemmas will centre on how long Disney waits after a new film's theatrical release to make it available on its new streaming service. Disney+ will also be available to stream through smart televisions, web browsers, tablets and mobile devices.

At least 12 movies from the MCU canon, including Iron Man, Iron Man 2, Iron Man 3, Thor: The Dark World, Thor Ragnarok, Guardians of the Galaxy, Captain America: The Winter Soldier, Black Panther, Avengers: Infinity War, Ant-Man and the Wasp, as well as new movies Captain Marvel and Avengers: Endgame.

"The Simpsons" will head to the service, as well as movies and shows including "The Sound of Music" to "Malcolm in the Middle". At the top is the "hero carousel" that will have Disney+ originals, films and series.

"High School Musical: The Musical: The Series" will also launch with the service. Its SVOD home is on Hulu, which also is controlled by Disney.

Marvel series confirmed: Marvel boss Kevin Feige confirmed several rumored Marvel series during his presentation.

The entire "Skywalker Sage" of Star Wars will be made available on Disney Plus, including all recent films, within a year of the service's launch.
