What is Disney+?
Disney+ is an entertainment streaming service from Disney. Users can access pretty much all of Disney’s original and classic family-friendly content, including offerings from Marvel, Star Wars, Pixar, Fox, and National Geographic. A lot of existing Disney content has been pulled or will be removed from competing streaming services (such as Netflix) so that it’s all in one place.
The Disney+ service includes Disney classics, but will also have exclusive Disney+ movies and television shows, especially from the Star Wars and Marvel universes. For Marvel, there is the upcoming Loki and Wanda Vision series, and Star Wars fans are getting The Mandalorian and a new series about Obi-Wan Kenobi.
How much does Disney+ cost?
Disney+ starts at a mere $6.99 a month, or $69.99 annually. There is also a bundle deal available, where you can get Disney+, ESPN, and Hulu (with ads) for just $12.99 a month. It is unknown if there will be other bundles with ad-free Hulu.
All Disney, all the time
For all your Disney needs
Disney+ will have all of your classic Disney favorites, along with some brand new exclusives that won’t be available anywhere else. Considering the content you’ll get, the price is a no-brainer.
