Disney reveals launch date of its streaming service, read details

Disney's animated films including the classics such as "Snow White", "Cinderella", "Aladdin", "Beauty and the Beast", "Moana", and "The Little Mermaid" will all be available to stream when Disney+ launches.

As a cherry on top, Marvel revealed that talent from the movies will be lending their voices to the What If series, so while Hayley Atwell's short-lived ABC series Agent Carter may be gone, we can probably at least look forward to hearing her as Peggy again. What's more, the company predicted Disney+ should be able to achieve profitability by 2024, amassing as many as 60 million to 90 million subscribers by the end of that year.

The service's entire lineup will cover five categories: Disney, Pixar, Marvel, Star Wars and National Geographic.

Disney+ will launch "with a robust library of theatrical and television content" and will release more than 25 original series and 10 original films, documentaries and specials in its first year, according to the company.

Marvel Studios' Kevin Feige also announced the What If? animated series.

New shows already on tap include "The Mandalorian", the first live action "Star Wars" series, created by Jon Favreau; a prequel to the "Star Wars" film "Rogue One", starring Diego Luna; a series about the Marvel character Loki, starring Tom Hiddleston; a rebooted "High School Musical" series; and a new documentary series focused on Disney. Each episode will explore a pivotal moment from the Marvel Cinematic Universe and turn it on its head, leading the audience into uncharted territory.

Nonfiction series also announced earlier this week include Be Our Chef, Cinema Relics: Iconic Art of the Movies (working title), Earthkeepers (working title), Encore! Disney+ hasn't yet announced a release date for any of the series. With the official announcement of this show, it seems that we will be in store for more odd couple missions that we caught a bit of a glimpse of in Captain America: Civil War.

"We're extremely excited about our growing portfolio of direct-to-consumer offerings", said Kevin Mayer, Disney's chairman of direct-to-consumer and global content.

So how will the product itself work?

In addition to originals, Disney+ will come with a deep library of existing movies and TV shows.

As with the legacy of the brand, Disney+ promises the best in service, quality, and usability. An unprecedented amount of content will also be available to fans for offline viewing.

His reaction, however, isn't as revealing as you might think. You can see that slide below. Will you sign up at the $6.99 price point?
