Disney’s new streaming service secures exclusive Marvel and Star Wars content
Plus Toy Story 4, Frozen 2 and live-action The Lion King.
Disney’s streaming platform, Disney+, has reportedly guaranteed exclusive rights to both Marvel and Star Wars titles, in addition to its own Disney films, series and original content.
The recently launched service will stream Disney, Marvel and Star Wars movies, its existing television library, plus 4-5 original Disney series and 3-4 exclusive Disney films.
CBC reports that Disney+ had over 10 million signups the first day it launched, revealing the platform’s potential to compete with streaming industry giants like Netflix. For comparison, Netflix has gained around 160 million subscribers since launching in 2007.
This move will capitalize on Disney’s collection of high-profile, big budget movies scheduled for release in 2019, including Toy Story 4, Frozen 2 and a live-action version of the 1994 animated classic The Lion King.
Disney+ initially rolled out in Canada, the US and the Netherlands on November 12. It’s subsequently rolling out in other countries around the world including Australia, New Zealand and Puerto Rico on November 19.
One of the factors impacting the rollout schedule is Disney’s existing contracts with companies in the States, which prevents certain films and franchises from being offered on Disney+ until those agreements expire. Netflix previously confirmed that Disney movies would remain available on its platform until the end of 2018.
You can sign up to a subscription for $8.99 a month.
