Disney has officially announced that the new streaming platform, Disney+, will premiere in the United States, Canada, and the Netherlands on November 12 and the debut in Australia and New Zealand will take place one week later on November 19. According to Disney, Disney+ will hopefully be in “all major markets within the first two years,” meaning that some countries may not get the service until some time in 2021.
In addition to over 300 movies and 7,000 TV episodes, there are many other original programs currently being developed, including multiple series within the Marvel and Star Wars franchises. Disney+ will offer five MCU shows that are officially part of Marvel’s Phase 4, which connects them with the movies in ways that series on other streaming platforms rarely did. Disney+ will also be streaming the first ever live-action Star Wars TV show The Mandalorian
As previously reported, the service will cost $6.99 per month in America, €6.99 per month in the Netherlands, $8.99 per month in Australia and Canada, and $9.99 per month in New Zealand. Given the wide breadth of content, there’s unsurprisingly great interest in subscribing to Disney+ when it finally arrives this November.
