Disney+’s launch date is officially scheduled for next month, and in anticipated of the much-awaited event, they have released every title of every movie or show that will be included in the channel. Although we had indeed received a list of sorts, already that was from those Netherlands viewers who were previously subscribed, due to licensing rights, it would seem the actual titles will vary pretty much from country to country.
US subscribers, however, now know how much bang they will be getting for their buck, and from what those who have seen it so far, it looks to be one bang-up offering of content. The official Twitter account for Disney+ wanted to make the title release a significant event, and as such, they have been posting the content list one tweet at a time.
Heading up the list at number one is Snow White and The Seven Dwarfs, which is then followed by an impressive amount of shows, including original productions as that of The Mandalorian—billed as being the first-ever Star Wars live-action TV series ever offered. The list contains hundreds of classic shows, movies, documentaries—you name it!
Disney+ will not launch with a massive amount of content like that of such competitors as Netflix. However, they will have some great franchises under their belts, such as Marvel, Star Wars, Pixar, live actions originals, and the list goes on and on. It would appear to those in the know that the House of Mouse is preferring the approach of quality over quantity, hoping that this choice in programming will help them to get out of the gates and hit the ground running.
Disney+ will reportedly be available for a very competitive rate of $6.99 a month or $69.99 a year. There will reportedly also be the option to bundle in Hulu and ESPN for the low, low price of $12.99. With almost every media company in the business jumping onto the streaming bandwagon, one has to wonder if the prices will become more and more competitive, all in the name of getting those much-needed viewers.
