Disney launched their Disney Plus streaming service today in a spectacular-spectacular (man, I love “Moulin Rouge”) presentation that showcased the many upcoming films and series that’ll be available on it, as well as subscription prices and the all-important launch date.

The streamer, featuring a range of Disney (and now Fox) first-run originals and classics, will be available in most major regions over the next two years but North America gets it first on November 12.

Disney Plus will cost $7 a month (Netflix’s cheapest plan is $9, and its standard plan is $13) which is great value considering it’ll be offering up 10 original films and 25 original series, including three “Avengers” spinoffs – the recently-announced ‘Loki’, ‘Scarlett Witch and Vision’ and ‘Falcon and Winter Soldier’ series right off the bat.

In addition, all 30 years of “The Simpsons” will be available first day, along with nearly all the “Star Wars” movies, which they’ll roll out over the first year, the entire Pixar library and lots of newly acquired Fox classics like “The Sound of Music”, “The X-Files” and “Malcolm in the Middle.”

Disney’s Bob Iger also showed off the new app. Featuring a similar interface to Netflix and Amazon, it features movie and TV titles on a dark background, a “recommended for you” section, categories, a ‘continue watching’ option, and the ability to have a Disney character be your profile avatar.

Of the new films and TV series coming to Disney, a live-action “Lady and the Tramp” movie featuring Justin Theroux, bowing first day, a period movie called “Togo”, Anna Kendrick-starrer “Noelle”, an animated “Phineas and Ferb” movie, and new series based on “High School Musical”, “Monster’s Inc” and “The Sandlot”.

Current hit “Captain Marvel” will also be available first day to stream.

In the coming years, it’s also reported that we’ll see a new series featuring Jeremy Renner’s ‘Hawkeye’ (from “The Avengers”), an Ewoks series, a series based on the “Mighty Ducks” movies, a new “Muppets” series, and a comedy series based on the Greg Berlanti flick “Love, Simon”.

Later on, the streaming service will also debut a remakes of “3 Men and a Baby”, “Father of the Bride”, “Honey, I Shrunk the Kids” and “The Parent Trap”.  As recently reported, a third “Sister Act” is also on the way.

There will also be some new live-action takes on some animated classics – like “The Sword in the Stone”, to be directed by Juan Carlos Fresnadillo and a new take on “Peter Pan” from David Lowery.

Hulu has released an official, full-length trailer for the fourth season of “Veronica Mars”, premiering July 26 on the streamer.
Kristen Bell returns as star and executive producer, alongside many faces from the original run, and creator Rob Thomas.
Spring breakers are getting murdered in Neptune, thereby decimating the seaside town’s lifeblood tourist industry. After Mars Investigations is hired by the family of one of the victims to find their son’s killer, Veronica is drawn into an epic eight-episode mystery that pits the enclave’s wealthy elites, who would rather put an end to the month-long bacchanalia, against a working class that relies on the cash influx that comes with being the West Coast’s answer to Daytona Beach.

The first three seasons of the hit drama will be available on Hulu before the Season 4 premiere.
