Disney has officially unveiled its Disney+ streaming service.
Disney unveiled details of the service on Thursday after the close, saying it would launch November 12 at a price of $7 a month or $70 a year.
Disney has unveiled details on its upcoming Disney+ streaming service that will launch in the USA in November 2019 and shortly after in Western Europe and parts of Asia.
In a Twitter thread, Disney revealed details and content offerings of its new service, which included access to every Star Wars movie, a slew of Marvel Cinematic Universe-related TV shows and an extensive movie library containing classics like Mary Poppins and Alice in Wonderland.
Nonfiction series also announced earlier this week include Be Our Chef, Cinema Relics: Iconic Art of the Movies, Earthkeepers, Encore!, the untitled Walt Disney Imagineering documentary series, Marvel's 616, Marvel's Hero Project, (Re) Connect, Rogue Trip, and Shop Class.
Disney's executives introduced the world to Disney+ and exclusive new content on the service, including its "Star Wars" series, "The Mandalorian". There's no official release date, but it's expected within a year of the Disney+ launch on November 12.
Unlike Netflix, Disney+ content won't be rated any higher than a 12A.

DISNEY HAS ANNOUNCES the arrival of its much-trailed streaming service, adding to the already crowded market for on-demand tellyboxness.
Disney+ is set to be available on a wide variety of devices, including smart TVs, tablets, smartphones, video game consoles, and the web. A monthly subscription will be available for $6.99, with annual subscriptions costing $69.99. And thanks to Disney's purchase of 20th Century Fox, Disney+ will launch with all 30 seasons of The Simpsons available to stream on day one.
The advertising-free service will be launched in the autumn in more than 100 countries worldwide, and will focus on original programming.
"What If", Marvel Studios' first animated series, will take MCU story lines and turn them on their head.
The service will have a collection of more than 7,500 television episodes and 500 films.
Speaking of "Frozen", a documentary called "Into the Unknown: Making Frozen 2" will highlight the behind-the-scenes development of the sequel to the hit animated film. All episodes of The Simpsons will be on the platform from the first day, and episodes of Malcolm in the Middle will also be available.
Americans have a couple of months before the streaming service gets released there, so they'll have plenty of time to work out if they can afford the £5.34 a month to watch everything they could ever want to watch.
