Disney is finally ready to unveil its streaming service. What we know and what we don't

Would you like to see Disney's streaming service released on the Nintendo Switch? The service will be ad-free, supported exclusively by subscription fees, and will be available on gaming consoles, smart TV's, and connected streaming devices. The presentation then showcased the service's interface, which is similar to what consumers are used to on competing services.

Previously announced Disney+ projects include the Star Wars live-action series The Mandalorian, starring Pedro Pascal and Nick Nolte, and a High School Musical reboot series with an ensemble of newcomers.

"What we are putting forward is an aggressive strategy", Disney Chief Executive Bob Iger told analysts at the presentation.

The entire "Skywalker Sage" of Star Wars will be made available on Disney Plus, including all recent films, within a year of the service's launch. To make the leap, Disney ended a lucrative licensing relationship with Netflix, which had become the video streaming home for its latest films after their theatrical release, as well as many of its TV series and classic movies.

For those that may not be familiar, Disney+ is the upcoming streaming service from Disney that will bring much of the company's vast library of content to subscribers. A monthly subscription will cost $6.99 a month, with an annual subscription set at $69.99. All of the studio's short films, including Bao, will be available at launch.

In many ways, it's hard to compare Netflix with Disney because of the widely different types of shows each offers, said eMarketer analyst Paul Verna.

Within the first year of launch, which begins on November 12, audiences can have access to Disney's entire Pixar film collection, as well as Marvel's most recent superhero release Captain Marvel and many more of the studios popular films.

Kawhi Leonard had 22 points for Toronto, Serge Ibaka had 12 points while Marc Gasol had eight points and 10 rebounds. When asked what coaching Wade has meant to him, Heat coach Eric Spoelstra said he "could go on for days".

The only weak link on the content side is some of the original programming planned for Disney+, which has a DVD extra quality to it. What If, based on the comic book series, will re-imagine the stories behind MCU's most popular superheroes.

Anthony Mackie and Sebastian Stanare will be teaming up in the series The Falcon and The Winter Soldier, they confirmed.

Marvel head Kevin Feige took to the stage at today's Disney Investor Day to talk about how the new Disney+ streaming service will factor into the future of the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

Other films set to debut on Disney+ including Timmy Failure from Oscar Winner Tom McCarthy (Spotlight), an Alaskan sled dog adventure titled Togo starring Willem Dafoe, Disney's live-action remake of Lady and the Tramp, the Christmas comedy Noelle starring Anna Kendrick and Bill Hader, and the Young Adult drama Stargirl based on the best-selling novel of the same name.

An original documentary feature, The Imagineering Story, will provide insight into Disney parks around the world.

The Simpsons will also join Disney+: The first 30 seasons of The Simpsons will also be available on Disney+ on launch day.
