Now that 2019 is here, that means we’re even closer to the launch of Disney’s new streaming service, Disney+. But what exactly can we expect to find on this new platform?
With an already saturated market of streaming options, Disney needs to step it up in order to woo customers—and that’s exactly what the House of Mouse is doing. In addition to reportedly lower subscription fees than Netflix, Disney+ will offer all of its movies and TV shows—that are slowly being pulled from Netflix—as well as plenty of original series and movies.
The new streaming service will be organized into the following categories; here are all the new Disney+ offerings that have been confirmed so far.
- Disney’s remake of Dumbo, which hits theaters in March, will have its streaming debut on Disney+.
