Disney fans who have been eagerly awaiting more details on Disney+, the company's previously announced dedicated streaming service, just got an earful of answers on what to expect when the service makes its debut. As part of Disney's Investor Day, the company announced Disney+'s official launch date (November 12, 2019) as well as its price point ($6.99 per month). The Mouse House also confirmed that the entirety of the Star Wars franchise will be available on the service (even if not right away).
While films from the Star Wars saga have been sporadically available on Netflix, the Disney+ platform will feature all of the movies from all of the franchise's trilogies, as well as a tie-in animated series. Standalone films such as Rogue One and Solo: A Star Wars Story will also be available for streaming.
Though the service will launch in November, not all of the company's Star Wars content will be in its library from the get-go. All franchise installments through The Force Awakens will reportedly be available upon the service’s launch, with all content after that, such as The Last Jedi and Solo, popping up later on.
Plans for the service are being reported to start at $6.99 per month or $70 per year. Disney also announced many other exciting additions to the platform, including The Simpsons (which came about as part of their recent deal with 21st Century Fox) and several original Marvel series.
