"This is a big deal. All Disney in one place never existed before," Disney CEO Bob Iger told "Good Morning America" in April. "That's [like] going to Disneyland every day of the week."
In addition to beloved Disney classics -- everything from "Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs" to "Moana" is available -- there will be new movies to watch on launch day, including a live-action "Lady and the Tramp" and Anna Kendrick's holiday movie, "Noelle," about Santa Claus' family.
Disney and Fox TV series, including "Goof Troop," "Boy Meets World" and all 30 seasons of "The Simpsons" are also available, as well as new, original series that will be making their debut. "Star Wars" fans have been eagerly anticipating "The Mandalorian," a spinoff set after the fall of the Empire, while Marvel devotees have "Marvel's Hero Project" to look forward to. (Other Marvel series, including "Loki," starring Tom Hiddleston, are forthcoming.) "High School Musical: The Musical: The Series" will also be available at launch, as will Kristen Bell's "Encore," a reality series that reunites casts of high school musicals.
Disney will be adding many new titles in the future, too. While most Pixar films are streaming to start, "Coco" and "Toy Story 4" will be added later, as will 2019 releases "Maleficent: Mistress of Evil" and "The Lion King." One new original series that has made headlines is a sequel of "Lizzie McGuire," starring Hilary Duff, which is currently in production. There will also be a TV spinoff of the film "Love, Simon" set to premiere during the first year of Disney+.
For those looking to invest in more than just Disney+, there is also a $12.99 monthly bundle option that includes Disney+, Hulu and ESPN+, and Verizon customers can get a year subscription to the streaming service for free. If that's not enough, Disney is offering several deals to celebrate the launch of Disney+: Lyft users can snag a free ride using the promo code “DISNEYPLUS," and if you buy a select bouquet from Urban Stems, Disney+ will double the flowers.
Disney+ "is an extension for the company of what it has done for 96 years, which is tell great stories that entertain the world, people of all generations," Iger said. "Because the stories that we tell tend to touch people's hearts, they kind of live forever."
You can preorder the streaming service at DisneyPlus.com.
