Disney Has Officially Named Their Streaming Service Disney+ and Here Are Some New Details
A while ago, we were lead to believe the name of Disney’s streaming service would be Disney Play, but then it was quickly noted that was not the official name. Now, we have the official name, are you ready? The streaming service will be called Disney+. That’s not a terrible name at all.
Disney+ will be home to a plethora of content from Disney including the new live-action Star Wars series The Mandalorian and the Cassian Ardo show, new shows for the MCU starting with a show about Loki starring Tom Hiddleston, and the live-action remake of Lady and the Tramp.
Some of the other projects in development include a High Fidelity series, Monsters Inc., and Mighty Ducks. Of course, this is simply the tip of the iceberg as Disney has plans for a lot more content for the service in addition to old content being accessible.
Here are some additional new details on what will make Disney+ different from Netflix:
Disney+ will do what Netflix doesn't: Its app will have microsites within it devoted to various brands: Star Wars, Marvel, Pixar, Nat Geo and Disney. And each of those brand sites will have different user interfaces. So: 5 services in 1?— TVMoJoe (@TVMoJoe) November 8, 2018
That’s pretty cool! Not to mention, Bob Iger has before said they are trying to make it cheaper than Netflix with prices between $8-15.
This is going to be a really popular service, there’s no doubt about that. Will you be getting it when it launches next year?
