Disney Unveils 'Disney+' Launch Details.

After years of speculation and a steady drip feed of information Disney has finally revealed all about their new streaming service, Disney+. The Mouse House has announced the release date, price and- most importantly- details of what content will be coming to the platform.

Disney+ will launch in the United States on November 12 for $6.99 a month, or $70 annually. Disney also plans to roll out in all major international markets within two years of launch.

The content will be split into sections- Disney, Pixar, Marvel and National Geographic, although post acquisition, it will also include both movies and series from Fox. But what exactly will be available to watch?

The service will be home to more than 7500 episodes of television and 500 films, including classics from the Disney and Pixar vaults and all future releases. They're also investing heavily in original programming and will launch 25 original series and 10 films within the first year. These include:

Star Wars: The Clone Wars New Season
•  Monsters At Work- a sequel series to Monsters Inc featuring John Goodman and Billy Crystal.
•  Marvel's What-If...? Marvel Studio's first animated series will explore alternative version of events in the Marvel Cinematic Universe- such as what if Agent Carter became a Super Soldier?
•  Phineas and Ferb: The Movie. A feature-length sequel to the Disney channel favourite.
•  Pixar Spark Shorts,
•  Toy Story 4 spin-off Forky Asks a Question
•  A live-action (ish) adaptation of Lady and The Tramp
•  Non-fiction content such as an in-depth series on the making of Frozen II and a Disney Imagineering series.

And just to be the icing on the cake, it's also been confirmed that Disney+ will have all 30 seasons of The Simpsons from launch.

The service will be available on a wide range of devices, including mobile, connected TVs and game consoles, and will support 4K streaming where available.
