The upcoming Disney streaming service has finally received a name.
The streaming service is being called Disney+. It will compete with similar platforms like Netflix and Hulu, and will contain content from all of the properties owned by Disney. This includes the Marvel Cinematic Universe, the Star Wars franchise, Pixar Studios, National Geographic, the Muppets and their own wealth of films and television series. Disney+ will also presumably eventually include the properties acquired in Disney’s buyout of Fox.
Disney CEO Bob Iger revealed the news during a webcast detailing the company’s earnings in 2018. The streaming service is will launch sometime in late 2019. Iger also said that all Disney content will be pulled from other streaming services some time next year. Said content will then be brought over to Disney+ when it launches.
Iger also revealed a number of new television series scheduled to premiere with the service. This includes a Star Wars prequel about Rouge One character Cassian Andor, the previously announced Star Wars series The Mandalorian, a series centered around Loki and a show set in the world of Monsters Inc.
