Pixar

It’s been nearly two years since Disneyrevealed its plans to cut its content from Netflix and launch its own streaming platform, and yet, as our favorite shows began to disappear (R.I.P. The Punisher), relatively little has been known about Disney’s plans. Until now.

At a presentation in Hollywood, The New York Times reports, Disney chief executive Bob Iger revealed how Disney plans to take on streaming giants Netflix and Amazon’s Prime Video.

Streaming service Disney+ will launch on November 12 and will be stacked with varied original content. In the first year alone, there will be 10 original films and 25 original series, including three Avengers spin-offs. Almost all of the Star Wars saga will be available, every single Pixar movie will be on there, as will all 30 seasons of The Simpsons.

Of course, after Disney’s recent acquisition, the platform will also host a wealth of 21st Century Fox content. Alongside The Simpsons, you’ll find classics like Malcolm in the Middle and The Sound of Music. There will also be a ton of National Geographic content on the platform.

Disney+ will also be cheaper than Netflix, costing $7 per month compared with Netflix’s cheapest plan at $9 per month. Users will also be able to download content for watching offline.
