After unveiling its plans for its forthcoming streaming service, Disney has officially announced that the Disney+ streaming service will debut on Nov. 12.
During the Walt Disney Company's Investor Day presentation, Disney confirmed that the service will be available for $6.99 monthly -- which is noticeably cheaper than Netflix -- or $69.99 annually.
While the release schedule for many of the streaming service's planned shows and films are still relatively up in the air, it was announced that the Star Wars series, The Mandalorian will be available upon launch.

Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige also confirmed three of the various reported live-action Marvel series previously teased: Loki, WandaVision, and Falcon & Winter Solider. Interestingly enough, while Loki appeared to be the furthest along, as it was the first series confirmed by Bob Iger, Falcon & Winter Solider is slated to be released first, within a year of Disney+'s launch.
Loki and the Scarlet Witch & Vision series, which is now titled WandaVision, are set for the second year of Disney+ along with the Cassian Andor series, as Hollywood Reporter editor Aaron Couch noted.

On the animated side, Marvel also confirmed What If? and even revealed what fans can expect from the first episode -- and it's sure to make Peggy Carter fans excited, as Hayley Atwell's Peggy Carter will return, at least, in animated form.
As for Fox offerings, the long-running animated series, The Simpsons, will be exclusive to Disney+ later this year. All previous 30 seasons -- that's 660-plus episodes -- of the series will be made available upon launch, with future seasons then going on to appear exclusively on Disney+ from that point on.
The Disney+ streaming service will launch on Nov. 12, 2019.
