Disney movies and shows have been hard to watch on streaming services lately… Because Disney has been preparing its own streaming service, which launches TOMORROW (November 12)! Disney has officially announced what’s coming... Here are all the releases we’re most excited about!
Disney+ launches Tuesday, November 12, 2019 and will cost $8.99 per month, or $89.99 per year.
Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs
This 1937 animated classic needs no introduction, and is sure to be among the most popular additions to Disney+.
Miracle on 34th Street
This Christmas classic has been long-awaited on streaming services, and it’s arriving in the nick of time for Christmas 2019, a full 72 years after its original release. It was last released for home video in 2009, but we now know a 4K version exists, but is not available to the public… This will probably be what Disney releases on Disney+.
The 1950 animated classic has only ever been released for home video – never for streaming services. The latest release dates back to last summer, when a beautiful HD version was made available to the public, in its first digital remaster since 2005. We can expect this version to be available on Disney+.
Beauty and the Beast
So far, only the 1991 animated film has been announced as part of the Disney+ release… But we’re sure the 2017 live-action remake starring Emma Watson will follow soon!
The classic 1992 animated film, starring Robin Williams as the Genie, will be accompanied by its less successful 1996 Disney Channel spinoff, Aladdin and the King of Thieves. Sadly, there is no mention so far of this year’s live-action remake starring Will Smith being offered… Yet!
The Lion King
Even after the disappointing reviews for the live-action remake, we’re still over the moon about having the original animate Lion King available to stream.
The Little Mermaid
Disney+ will be streaming The Little Mermaid (1989 animated classic), along with its accompanying TV series from 1992 and its sequel ‘Ariel’s Beginning’, released exclusively for the Disney Channel in 2008.
This film needs no introduction… Despite its relatively young age (released in 1998), it’s already considered a classic Disney movie.
Lady and the Tramp
The original 1955 animated classic will be released alongside a live-action remake. This is one of Disney’s biggest new releases on the new Disney+ platform. Will it live up to the hype?
The film that broke all of our fragile hearts as children… Full of important lessons and amazing moments, this one is essential for any Disney fan.
This 1940 animated art film, arguably Walt Disney’s most complex and ambitious creation, has aged gracefully and is now ready for the streaming world.
All 4 Toy Story movies are excellent, and at least the first 3 are coming to Disney+ at launch. It’s one of those rare franchises that didn’t lose steam after the massive success of its first release in 1995. The computer-animated classic is definitely on top of our Disney+ watch list!
Stay a kid forever with this 1953 animated classic that has the unsurprising ability to stay young, even 66 years after its original release.
Every single Star Wars movie, all the way up to 2015’s ‘The Force Awakens’ is going to stream on Disney+. Eventually, all the Star Wars films, including later releases and this year’s yet-to-be-released ‘The Rise of Skywalker’ will be available on Disney+. In addition, a new original TV series, The Mandalorian, launches along with Disney+.
The 1961 animated classic, its excellent 1996 live-action remake and even the 2003 Disney Channel spinoff will be released on Disney+.
Alice in Wonderland
Both the 1951 classic and the 2010 live-action remake starring Johnny Depp will be available on Disney+… And both are excellent!
The Simpsons came under Disney’s umbrella as part of a recent deal with 21st Century Fox. As such, expect Disney+ to feature the complete Simpsons catalogue.
Pocahontas is a beautiful and historically important Disney film. It was the first Disney film with a woman of colour as a lead character. It’s another Disney classic that has never before been available on any streaming service.
Another favourite, this one from 1941! This film contains some revolutionary animation, a great story and a message that will survive the test of time. We can’t wait!
The Nightmare Before Christmas
This fiercely original film produced in 1993 by Tim Burton, changed the game on so many levels, chiefly in storytelling and animation. Its last home video version dates back to a Blu-Ray disc released in 2011.
Who among us doesn’t remember growing up watching the 1940 animated classic Pinocchio on home video? Now, this generation’s kids will be able to have that experience, too, on Disney+.
High School Musical
High School Musical is coming to Disney+! They are also producing a new, original follow-up to the classic 2006 series has got a lot of people excited… We’ll know when Disney+ launches whether it’ll live up to the hype!
