Disney Plus will be $7 a month and launch November 12

Disney has unveiled a robust unscripted slate for its Disney + service ahead of revealing new details of its SVOD to investors later today (11 April). The service will launch November 12, with subscriptions available for $6.99 a month or $69.99 a year, making it the exclusive streaming home of franchises like Star Wars, Pixar, the Marvel Cinematic Universe, The Simpsons, and more. The service will launch first in the United States, with plans to release in other markets later.

Pixar's theatrical shorts will be made available on day one, including shorts featuring "Toy Story" characters Bo Peep, in "Lamp Life", and Forky, in "Forky Asks a Question".

The Disney Plus streaming service is officially announced as the price, release date and shows and movies have been confirmed which includes Marvel and Star Wars.

In its first year, Disney+ will have 25 original series and 10 original films, along with documentaries and specials, the company says.

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

Disney raises the curtain on a hotly anticipated video steaming service that's aiming to topple industry pioneer Netflix, once a valuable ally.

In the latter category are Loki, Falcon & Winter Soldier, and WandaVision, which will bring back actors from the movies. Its animated classics, including "Aladdin" and "The Jungle Book" will be available on the service when it launches. All 30 seasons of the long-running animated show will be available to stream, as soon as the service launches.

A Star Wars-centric live-action series, titled "The Mandalorian" and directed by Jon Favreau, was also revealed for a launch-day release.

Elsewhere in the Star Wars universe, Disney+ is launching a series in 2021 about Diego Luna's Rogue One character, Cassian Andor, with Alan Tudyk reprising his role as the voice of the droid K2-SO.

Disney+ will host hours of content from the National Geographic Channel, as well.

Along with its strong brand, Disney has the advantage of having a clear strategy for each of its streaming services, Verna said, including Disney Plus, Hulu and ESPN Plus.

"The Simpsons" will head to the service, as well as movies and shows including "The Sound of Music" to "Malcolm in the Middle".
