Disney Plus Streaming Service Revealed: Cheaper Than Netflix, "Star Wars," Marvel, & More
When Marvel's programming started being taken off of Netflix, superfans of the studio started to worry about how they would be able to regularly watch their favorite superheroes. Soon after, it was announced that Disney would be unveiling its own streaming service, which would include Marvel films, shows, and much more. Yesterday, Disney CEO Bob Iger made some huge announcements about the upcoming streaming service, titled Disney Plus, revealing pricing information, releases dates, original content and other general information.
Disney announced yesterday that they would be investing $1 billion into original programming, meaning that we can expect an insane amount of production value from the historic creative corporation. By 2024, that amount should double as they expect to be profiting from the new service by then. With the focus being placed on original shows and movies, fans were stoked to see what they could expect from the platform. With all of the Marvel hype right now, it only made sense for Disney to unveil a new clip from Avengers: Endgame, which premieres later this month. They also showed some exclusive footage from the upcoming Star Wars series The Mandalorian. Marvel spinoffs will also be debuting on the platform, including one about Loki from the Avengers and WandaVision featuring Scarlet Witch and The Vision.

In case you're worried about adding this to your monthly bills, the pricing information made everybody breathe a sigh of relief. Upon its launch on November 12, Disney Plus will cost users $6.99 per month and $69.99 a year.
Unfortunately, this means that Disney titles will likely disappear from Netflix by the end of this year. However, it will now be bunched in one special place. Are you looking forward to the launch?
