This weekend Disney holds it’s annual D23 Expo in the beautiful city of Anaheim. Like many other entertainment conglomerates, the convention acknowledges upcoming projects across the spectrum of Walt’s ever expanding universe. From amusement parks to films, and now the budding tree that is Disney+, the House of Mouse’s new streaming service.
Launching November 12 for $6.99/mo, Disney+ will host all things TV, film and beyond for their properties. This includes programming from National Geographic, Disney & Pixar, Marvel, Star Wars and Fox. The possibilities are endless.
Disney’s biggest appeal is having something that appeals to everyone. If you’re a fan of the animated films, their vault will be open from Snow White & the Seven Dwarfs to Toy Story 4. Were you a 2000s-preteen, look forward to Disney Channel original series – including hits like Lizzie McGuire. Fox fans will find solace in all 30 seasons of The Simpsons being available from launch. And if you’re anything like us here at Streamable Life – you’ll found solace in the latest and greatest in Marvel & Star Wars releases.
