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.

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.
