Disney has brought us so much happiness since its inception. Let's face it, what would our childhoods be without Cinderella, The Lion King, and Mickey and Minnie? Now, Disney is bringing us yet another reason to celebrate its existence.
In 2017, the company announced it would launch its very own streaming service—similar to Netflix and Hulu—called Disney Plus. Now, it's nearly here, as it launches on November 12. Whether or not you're a Disney fan, you have to admit, this is exciting news. So, what exactly is Disney Plus? Lucky for you, we've got everything you need to know about the new streaming service.
How much does Disney Plus cost?
If you're already interested in Disney Plus, you can go to its website and prepay for your subscription. In total, it costs $6.99 per month or you can pay $69.99 (around $5.83 per month) for the whole year.
It will also offer an option to bundle Hulu (with ads) and ESPN+ for $12.99 a month, but you should wait until the service launches, according to CNET.
What's included in my Disney Plus subscription?
Once you subscribe to the service, you'll have access to all of Disney Plus' thousands of movies and TV shows. Not only that, but you can also stream content simultaneously from four different devices, have unlimited downloads, and watch everything in clear 4K. If you have a large family, don't worry, Disney Plus will allow you to make up to seven different user profiles.
What movies and TV shows will be on Disney Plus?
A better question is: what isn't on Disney Plus? According to the streaming service's official Twitter account, "In year one, you'll be able to rediscover more than 7,500 episodes and 500 films from our library." After that, Disney Plus will release more and more content from its vault.
However, it's not just classics like Mary Poppins, Alice in Wonderland (2010), The Sound of Music, and Frozen that will be available. The service also plans on releasing original content too. Subscribers will get access to exclusive shows and movies, including spinoffs like Loki from the Marvel universe, brand new titles like High School Musical: The Series, and remakes like the live-action Lady and the Tramp.
Already excited? You can purchase your subscription right now, but you'll have to wait until November 12 to enjoy all that Disney Plus has to offer. It seems like Christmas is coming early this year, thanks, Disney!
