Disney+ is Coming…And It’s Cheaper Than You Thought!

For a long time now we have been anticipating the release of Disney+. Disney+ is the new subscription streaming service by Disney that has been shaking things up over at Netflix for the last couple of years. Now we have an announced release date of November 12, 2019. We also know that the price for the service will be starting at $6.99 which is exceptionally low. This is great news for fans who have wondered if they will have to choose between the new Disney+ platform and Netflix, or Hulu. Of course, this move is also a prudent one by Disney, considering that they now own most of Hulu as well.

The Library of Content

Probably the biggest draw to Disney+ is the Disney productions themselves. The Streaming Service will provide continual access to downloadable Disney content. That is not to say that it will all be at once, or that there will not be some sort of rotational system. We have every reason to believe that the Disney Vault will remain as we know it, with systematic and limited releases of various films over 7-year intervals. See the full library of contents! 

Besides the films and television series that the Disney brand produced, we will also get to see films and TV series from Marvel, Star Wars, Pixar, and even National Geographic. Although the Disney+ website does not specifically reveal Fox as a contributing brand, there have been announcements regarding the inclusion of some Fox properties within the first year as well. Most notably, all 30 seasons of The Simpsons will be made available on the Disney+ platform.

Original Productions

As if the vast and expanding Disney Library of content wasn’t already enough reason to subscribe at the low monthly price of $6.99, Disney+ will also be streaming new original series, shorts, and documentaries. They have an opening budget of over $1 billion for new content. Which will include Marvel properties like WandVision, a show centered on Scarlet Witch and Vision; and The Falcon and The Winter Soldier. A Star Wars series set shortly after the events of Return of the Jedi will join the Platform as well. This project is headed by Jon Favreau, known for directing Iron Man and Iron Man 2. The Mandalorian is a 10 episode series that is said to cost $100 million to make!

Marvel comes to Disney+

Captain Marvel will take flight on Disney+! Available day one of the streaming service, you can watch Captain Marvel from your TV, computer, phone, or tablet, wherever you are.

A new live-action series WandaVision will star Elizabeth Olsen returning as Wanda Maximoff and Paul Bettany reprising his role as The Vision.

The Falcon and the Winter Soldier is a new series starring Anthony Mackie and Sebastian Stan, and is sure to be an adventure for Marvel Studios fans.

Marvel’s What If…? will be the first animated series from Marvel Studios, available in year one of Disney+! Inspired by the comic books of the same name, each episode will explore key moments from the Marvel Cinematic Universe and turn it on its head.

We previously shared our excitement around Loki, a Marvel Studios series starring our low-key fave (get it?) Tom Hiddleston, and now it’s coming to Disney+.

Everything you need to know about Disney+ Streaming Service

What day will Disney+ streaming service be available?

November 12, 2019

Will classic Disney movies be on Disney+?

Yes, Disney will include the classics we all love, as well as Pixar and Marvel films (including the newest film, Captain Marvel and Avengers Endgame). 

Is Disney+ available in Canada?

Yes, Disney plus will be available in Canada starting in 2020. 

What is Disney’s new streaming service called?

The official name of Disney’s new streaming service is Disney+. 

Is Disney pulling Marvel shows from Netflix?

Netflix pays money to produce Marvel shows, but they don’t own the IP. Netflix has already canceled all of its Marvel series, including The Punisher and Jessica Jones. While there are other reasons to speculate the canceling of Netflix’s Marvel series, considering that Disney+ will be a direct competitor with Netflix, the answer is pretty clear. 

Is Disney plus free? 

No, Disney + is not free but starts at a very nominal price of $6.99. Subscribers will have a choice of two different Disney + price plans. You can either pay $6.99 per month or pay $69.99 per year (which is $5.83 per month.) If you can pay yearly, you will save a few bucks. 

Disney + FREE Trial for new subscribers

As of right now, Disney has not said anything about a FREE trial for new subscribers. 

Subscribers will have a choice of two different Disney + price plans. You can elect to pay either $6.99 per month or $69.99 per year. If you go for the annual Disney Plus subscription, it breaks down to $5.83 per month. However, we’ve all seen the other streaming services offer free trials, so it wouldn’t be a surprise if Disney provides the same for Disney+. {I will update this post if that changes}

How does Disney + compare to Hulu + Netflix

Hulu’s base plan starts at $5.99 per month with advertisements. {they do offer a free trial for 30 days for new subscribers}

Netflix recently raised its prices to $12.99 for their regular subscription service. {they do offer a free trial for 30 days for new subscribers}

What can you watch on Disney + vs. Hulu and Netflix or Amazon Prime?

Disney Plus subscribers will be able to watch nearly all the Sar Wars and Marvel films, as well as the classic movies from Disney. This will also include the Fox films, unlimited TV series such as Malcolm in the Middle, The Simpsons, and Hannah Montana. Amazon Prime offers popular series such as The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel, while Netflix provides shows like The Crown, and films like Roma. Hulu originals include The Handmaid’s Tale. 

It’s hard to compare each streaming service against another since they offer different series and films. Honestly, if you’re a T.V. junkie, you’ll probably have a subscription to all of these streaming services. Thankfully, with Amazon Prime, you’re not just getting a streaming service, but all the benefits of having an Amazon Prime membership, so you may want to keep that one. 

But, I will suggest that if you still have regular cable, you can cut the cord and use streaming services to get all the shows you love. 

Will ESPN be on Disney plus?

It has been speculated that Disney may offer a bundling service with Disney+,  ESPN, and Hulu. Once Disney’s deal with Fox is complete, they will own 60% of Hulu, and since they already own ESPN (and ESPNN+), it would make their customers happy to offer bundle deals for these streaming services. 

Will Disney+ and Hulu merge?

No, not at this time. Hulu’s content is geared more towards adults, while Disney+ will be family-friendly. 

Needless to say, there will be plenty of entertainment, old and new to indulge in on Disney+. What are you interested in seeing most? The Disney Classics? The New original series? Old TV productions? Learn more about what to expect on Disney+ here.
