Every time we get to know more details about the streaming service Disney. Thus, the company itself has confirmed that its platform will be launched on November 12, 2019 in the United States and that its price will be $6.99 per month or, if any user prefers, its price will be adjusted and reduced to a total of $69.99 for annual subscriptions. The company has also stressed the importance of enjoying this new service from any device, whether it be a TV, tablet or smartphone.
However, if you don’t live in the US you’ll have to wait a little longer to enjoy Disney +.
In fact, the company has already marked 2020 as the launch year of its streaming platform in Europe and some Asian countries. But it will not reach Latin America until the beginning of 2021.
Good news for video game lovers! It was recently confirmed that Nintendo will welcome you to Disney Plus’s new broadcast service with open arms.
Recently, Disney conducted a briefing with investors and officially introduced Disney Plus, a new subscription transmission platform that will place the company’s many properties under one digital roof. But not just that. In promotional material, as discovered by a ResetEra user, devices such as PlayStation 4, Nintendo Switch and Xbox One are shown as potential homes for Disney Plus.
They then update the publication stating that Disney ” seems to have some sort of deal with PlayStation … the rest will also come, but perhaps later”.
Nintendo Switch is an ideal system for launching Disney Plus on or near it, taking into account the large installation base and the ability to carry the hybrid console on the fly. For its part, Disney Plus allows downloads for subscribers to view offline content, which is convenient, but will wrestle with the space gaming library.
Disney plans to offer approximately 7,000 episodes of television series and between 400 and 500 films in its service when released. The first and most important will be a variety of projects linked to Marvel, Star Wars, Pixar and, of course, Disney. The general theme of the service will be family content.
Besides, those numbers will increase very quickly. During an investor meeting, Iger stated that all of the Disney catalog films will arrive at Disney Plus ” sometime soon after the release”. That includes Disney’s classic animated movies, all of them. With Disney Plus, you’ll see favorites like Aladdin, The Lion King and many other titles.
However, Disney Plus will not only be a collection of great hits. There will also be original content in the service. Recently, rumors surfaced that a new program based on The Muppets will reach the magical hands of Disney Plus. Apparently, this production will be developed by the actor Josh Gad and the creators of once Upon A Time, Adam Horowitz and Edward Kitsis.
Reports earlier suggest that the next list of studio movies, including Captain Marvel, Frozen 2, Toy Story 4, Star Wars: Episode IX and the remake of the live action The Lion King of Favreau, they will probably have availability exclusive of transmission in this service.
A series of live-action with the veterans of MCU Sebastian Stan and Anthony Mackie as Winter Soldier and Falcon, respectively, is also in the works with the writer of Empire Malcolm Spellman.
