Last year, Disney announced that it would be removing its catalog from Netflix and begin its own streaming service. Since then, just a few details have been released about Disney’s Streaming Service. Until yesterday. The Disney Blog is reporting that during yesterday’s 3rd Quarter Earnings Call, several new details were announced pertaining to the new service.
“Star Wars” fans everywhere were excited that Disney would be bringing back “Star Wars: The Clone Wars.” When it does come back, expect to find it on the new streaming service. Other shows that have been rumored to appear on the new platform are “High School Musical,” “The Muppets,” and Marvel-themed programs.
Viewers will be able to see live action remakes of “Lady and the Tramp” and “The Sword and the Stone” on the service. In addition, the following remakes are rumored to show up:
- “3 Men and a Baby”
- “Honey, I Shrunk the Kids”
- “The Parent Trap”
- “Father of the Bride”
Subscribers can expect to find the following original movies on the platform:
- “Flora & Ulysses”
- “The Paper Magician”
- “Don Quixote”
- “Timmy Failure”
The following TV series are also projected to be on the new Disney streaming service:
- “Mighty Ducks”
- “High Fidelity”
- “Monsters, Inc.”
Viewers will also be able to find Marvel movies on the service and Disney is currently in talks with Turner Broadcasting to own all the rights to “Star Wars” movies. With the recent accusation of 21st Century Fox, many of the family-friendly options from their catalog will be available but some of the more adult options will go to Hulu.
The price for Disney’s new service has been been a question from many. While we don’t know the exact price at this time, Bob Iger did say it will cost “significantly less” than Netflix.
As for the name, that is also an unknown at this time. Online rumors speculate that it will be called DisneyFlix but that has not been confirmed by Disney.
Iger also commented that the service will be available “late 2019.”
