In a world where everything is moving online, it should come as no surprise that entertainment giant Disney is hopping into the ring with streaming giants such as Netflix and Hulu with its own on-demand service, Disney+, slated to launch on 12 November. At the recent D23 Expo Disney+ showcase in Anaheim, Disney revealed key details about the highly anticipated streaming service, as well as sneak peeks and new releases.
The platform will be Disney’s exclusive home for all its blockbuster movies, including everything in the Star Wars franchise, as well as the whole suite of Marvel and Pixar movies. Looking to re-watch Avengers: Endgame for the umpteenth time? It’ll be available on Disney’s new streaming platform starting 11 December.
Aside from all of Disney’s new releases and highly anticipated movies, you’ll also be able to watch the newest TV shows such as the live-action Star Wars series, and Marvel’s Loki. However, unlike Netflix’s binge-watch model, episodes will be released weekly to resemble a regular television schedule — presumably to build hype, avoid spoilers and differentiate Disney+ from other streaming giants.
Here are some of the highly anticipated new movies that we can expect to see both in cinemas and on Disney+, and their global release dates.
