Disney+ will launch in the US market on November 12, 2019, at $6.99 a month.

In the first year, Disney+ aims to offer up 7,500 television episodes and 500 films from the Disney library.

Not only that, but the entire 13-movie "Signature Collection" of Disney classics will be there as well, including Bambi, Snow White, Pinocchio, and others.

You will be available to use the Disney+ service on a wide range of mobile and connected devices, including gaming consoles, streaming media players and smart TVs. To celebrate the upcoming Frozen 2, a first-of-its-kind documentary series called Into the Unknown: Making Frozen 2 will feature behind-the-scenes looks at the film.

"Disney+ marks a bold step forward in an exciting new era for our company - one in which consumers will have a direct connection to the incredible array of creative content that is The Walt Disney Company's hallmark".

The Mandalorian will be available to start streaming when Disney+ launches, and all Star Wars movies will be available to stream within the first year.

Disney+ will become available to subscribers in the United States on Tuesday, Nov. 12.

The digital push is Disney's response to cord-cutting, the dropping of cable service that has hit its ESPN sports network and other channels, and the rise of Netflix Inc.

Disney+, which is Disney's first foray into direct-to-consumer streaming service, will debut exclusively in the USA sometime this fall. The film that kicked off the MCU, "Iron Man", will also be available on the first day of service.

In the latter category are Loki, Falcon & Winter Soldier, and WandaVision, which will bring back actors from the movies.

A Star Wars-centric live-action series, titled "The Mandalorian" and directed by Jon Favreau, was also revealed for a launch-day release.

Captain Marvel will be available on the service from Day 1.

Elsewhere in the Star Wars universe, Disney+ is launching a series in 2021 about Diego Luna's Rogue One character, Cassian Andor, with Alan Tudyk reprising his role as the voice of the droid K2-SO.

But apparently a deal was worked out to get the prequel and original trilogies ready for streaming under Disney's new roof.

"The Simpsons" will head to the service, as well as movies and shows including "The Sound of Music" to "Malcolm in the Middle".
