Good news to all Disney lovers! Disney+ is coming for you this year. Mark your calendar now as the release date and price was already revealed.
The Walt Disney Company or simply Disney is a multinational mass media and entertainment conglomerate. Founded on October 16, 1923, by brothers Walt and Roy O. Disney, Disney gained the world’s largest media conglomerate in terms of revenue.
As the golden age of streaming is on the verge of its peak, media companies have been releasing a streaming service as a content strategy. Disney, for example, introduced its video streaming ‘Disney+.’ Disney+ is a streaming service that was aimed to take on Netflix. Soon after, Disney announced the date and price of Disney+ streaming service.
Disney said that Disney+ will be available in the United States on November 12, 2019, with a price of $6.99 per month. According to Disney executives, the streaming service will be completely ad-free.
Here are some of the shows and films on Disney+
-High School Musical: The Musical: The Series
– The Phineas and Ferb Movie
– The Falcon and the Winter Soldier
Bob Iger, CEO at Disney, called the streaming service as “biggest priority” in 2019. Iger also said that they plan on streaming all Disney movies, past and future, on Disney+.
What’s sad is, Disney+ will not make any Star Wars movie on the platform. “We wouldn’t make a Star Wars movie for this platform,” Iger noted. “When everybody goes out on the weekend and you have a movie that opens up to $200 million, there’s a buzz that creates that enhances value. We like that. And eventually, the movies we’re making are going to [end up on] the service [for home release],” he added.
