Disney is putting a lot of money into its upcoming streaming service and using all of its assets to compete with Netflix. Disney CEO Bob Iger has said in the past, Disney+ will not cost as much as Netflix due to the amount of content. However, plenty of projects are being developed from Pixar, Lucasfilm, and Marvel Studios for Disney+.
Disney is also obtaining Fox assets soon as well, so even more brands will be added to the upcoming streaming services’ roster down the line. Analysts revealed in a Deadline report how many projects are in development for Disney+.
“There may be as many as 18 films and 16 TV series in some form of development for [Disney+],” the report reads. “Plus we expect some licensed content to be purchased or repurchased from other outlets as Disney looks to fill in programming gaps prior to the service’s launch later this year.”
One of the biggest draws to Disney+ is the first ever live-action Star Wars series. As of now, only a few properties have officially been announced for the service including Lucasfilm’s The Mandalorian, Marvel Studios’ Loki, and a live-action remake of Lady and the Tramp.
Though an exact date has yet to be revealed, Disney+ is expected to launch this Fall. Are you already sold on Disney’s newest streaming service?
