Many Disney fans are patiently waiting for the company’s new streaming service, and it’s coming pretty soon. The major venture means some big changes in streaming Disney content, and now we have more details about what’s to come.

Moving On

Back in 2017, it was announced that Disney was creating its own streaming service for fans. That meant taking a big risk in leaving behind a lucrative partnership with Netflix, which currently has many Disney movies and shows. The original deal was made in 2016, when Disney announced that Netflix would be the exclusive home for new Disney movies, including content from Disney-owned companies like Marvel and Pixar.

Disney content currently on Netflix will be available through the end of 2019. However, with Disney’s own streaming service, the company plans to take away its content from Netflix to bolster this new venture. And now fans and investors have more details on what to expect.

Wonderful World of Disney+

Disney Chairman and CEO Bob Iger revealed the streaming service’s official name will be Disney+. A logo was also shown to the public, as well as a timeframe for the release. The service is currently set to be released in late 2019, around the same time when the company’s contracts with Netflix will expire.

While a price point hasn’t been set in stone, Iger previously stated it would be less than Netflix (which is currently $7.99 for its basic plan. More details will be revealed at an investor event in 2019. However, there have been some announcements as to what content the service will provide.

Mouseworthy Content

Disney+ will offer five different hubs: Disney, Marvel, Star Wars, Pixar, and National Geographic.  “We’re going to super-serve fans” Iger admitted. While old Disney movies will also be included, the company also has new content in the works.

Some new content will be a series surrounding Marvel Comics’ own Loki, as well as reimagined TV series of films High Fidelity, The Mighty Ducks, and Monsters, Inc. Disney has also will have Christmas comedy Noelle (starring Anna Kendrick) and a live-action adaptation of Lady and the Tramp. Subscribers will see what the service has to offer in 2019!

Much of the estate is as it was during the 15 years Jackson called it his home, except for a few glaring differences – namely, the removal of the fun-fair rides that gave the home its whimsical name Neverland Ranch. The very last vestiges of where the carousel once spun are still visible as you go through the grounds. Read on for an in-depth view of the ranch.
