After months of building anticipation, Disney has finally announced a launch date and price point for its new streaming service, Disney+.
Just in time for the holidays, Disney+ will launch globally on Nov. 12 at an initial subscription price of $6.99 per month — or discounted offering of $69.99 per year. The service will feature content from all of Disney’s major properties, including Pixar, Marvel, Star Wars, National Geographic, Fox, and more.
Content created exclusively for the service will also be available. Projects already in the works include a Monsters Inc. spin-off series, a The Sandlot TV series, and many new Marvel projects.
In the latter category are Loki, Falcon & Winter Soldier, and WandaVision, which will bring back actors from the movies. An additional animated show — titled What If… — will imagine what the Marvel Universe would be like if events in the franchise’s tentpole films had turned out differently.
In the first year, Disney+ aims to offer up 7,500 television episodes and 500 films from the Disney library. All content will be downloadable from the platform.
