Disney confirms its Disney+ streaming service will eventually launch globally

Additionally, movies that came out in 2019, and going forward, will be streamed exclusively on Disney Plus.

Disney also owns a controlling stake in streaming service Hulu. That's not all though, an exciting first look at the Disney Plus user interface gives fans a peek at the Day One content they will be able to indulge in.

Disney Plus will roll out in the US on November 12 at a price of $6.99 per month, or $69.99 per year.

The entire Disney Signature Collection, featuring films like Snow White, Beauty and the Beast, and Cinderella, will be available at launch. After years of putting streaming in the back seat to protect its big-budget blockbusters and lucrative TV model, Disney has made streaming its top priority this year, even restructuring the company around it. If that wasn't enough, Disney+ will also have a Frozen 2 behind-the-scenes documentary.

Shock as Atletico striker handed eight-match ban
Costa has now been hit with an eight match ban: four for the insult and an additional four for putting his hands on the referee. Atletico needed to win to keep their slim title hopes alive, but Costa's dismissal after 27 minutes halted their challenge.

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.

All Pixar films will be available within the first year of launch and all Pixar theatrical shorts will be available from Day 1. Jon Favreau's The Mandalorian, the first ever live-action Star Wars series, will premiere on Disney+ at launch.

Other films set to debut on Disney+ including Timmy Failure from Oscar Winner Tom McCarthy (Spotlight), an Alaskan sled dog adventure titled Togo starring Willem Dafoe, Disney's live-action remake of Lady and the Tramp, the Christmas comedy Noelle starring Anna Kendrick and Bill Hader, and the Young Adult drama Stargirl based on the best-selling novel of the same name. The company also recently acquired 21st Century Fox, which means it can now develop content based on such franchises as Avatar, The Simpsons and the X-Men.
