Disney+ to launch in November

First plans for original content unveiled

Disney’s new streaming service is expected to launch in November according to the Wall Street Journal.

The report said that research into viewing habits based on UK streaming service DisneyLife suggested that “subscribers say they want new programming but often just watch the old.”

Disney+ is therefore planned to include an array of original programming based on existing properties, including the first live-action Star Wars TV series called The Mandalorian, and a new version of High School Musical.

There are also plans for Marvel shows including a Loki series, as well as Pixar content such as Monsters at Work, set in the world of Monsters Inc.

Disney software developers have reportedly been instructed “to dial back other projects to make sure the service can handle millions of subscribers when it launches.”
