The new service Disney+, which is focused on families and young children, will be counting on its storied catalog along with a broad offering of its own content
Disney premiered its streaming platform today which is set to compete with Netflix, it’s big rival in the consumption of digital entertainment.
Disney+ will be counting with 500 movies, 7,500 episodes of television and 12 new series—one of which is from the Star Wars universe, The Mandalorian, which is directed by Jon Favreau.
Disney+ will be focused on families, as well as teens and young children. For the moment, we’ll have to be satisfied with the library of classic and well-known titles for adoring Disney fans, from Pixar films to Star Wars, along with everlasting classics such as Bambi, The Jungle Book, and Snow White.
Disney+ is getting closer and closer to acquiring sagas such as Aliens, X-Men, Avatar or The Planet of the Apes. It still has a thorn at its side though with the series that still live on Fox, including the full seasons of The Simpsons, American Horror Stories, 24 and Bones.
For that, you have to sum up the endless catalog of films from 20th Century Fox, including classics like All About Eve, The Grapes of Wrath, or Anna Karenina, just to name a few.
The Disney+ streaming service will also have all of the Marvel titles available and a catalog of National Geographic.
The streaming service is also planning on not staying behind when it comes to making its own content. It will have a new series based on one of its characters, Cassian Andor, played by Mexican actor Diego Luna, from the Rogue One universe. The catalog of movies and new series will be available exclusively through its paid service. All of this for $6.99 a month.
