Disney+ dives into the world of streaming

November 19, 2019


Disney+, the new streaming service from The Walt Disney Co. was just released providing fans with new and classic content to watch at home.

Disney+ has movies and shows from studios like Pixar, Marvel, Star Wars,  National Geographic, Twenty-First Century Fox and ESPN.  


The streaming service also includes live events and exclusive shows from ESPN+ for sports fans.


Disney allows you to save money when you have Disney+, Hulu, and ESPN+ together, which is great for when you are on a budget.


There is one downside with the package deal, television episodes streamed on Hulu will be ad supported.  


The price for Disney+ by itself is $6.99 a month, combined with Hulu and ESPN+ the service is $12.99 a month.


Just like Netflix and Hulu it can be watched on the go or at home, where you can get the full  television experience.


Unlike Netflix, the service only allows four different devices at once.


If you live with a family of five or more, like myself, then this could cause a problem. 


Family members may have to fight among themselves to decide who gets to watch.


Besides offering the classic Disney lineup, the streaming service will also have exclusive originals.


Some of the original content includes “Forky Asks a Question,” staring Tony Hale and other cast members from the “Toy Story” franchise. Bo Peep, another “Toy Story” fan favorite, will also get a show called “Lamp Life,” which will explain what happened to her between “Toy Story Two” and “Toy Story Four.” 


All of Pixar’s theatrical shorts are available as of day one and their movies will be released throughout the first year of launch.


“Star Wars” fans can enjoy content like the new original series “The Mandalorian,” which premiered on Nov. 15, as well as all the other films from the franchise.


Marvel offers movies such as “Avengers: Endgame” and “Captain Marvel,” while Twenty-First Century Fox will have all 30 seasons of “The Simpsons.”


The studio promises more shows coming soon including “Love, Simon,” a series starring Michael Cimino.


National Geographic will also  provide reality shows and docu-series for the streaming service, including “The World According to Jeff Goldblum.” 


Some of the movies on the service include the live action “Lady and the Tramp,” and “Noelle,” starring Anna Kendrick and Bill Hader. 


Other originals available for Disney fans include “High School Musical: The Musical: The Series,” which was filmed in a similar style to workplace comedy “The Office.”  Some of the classic movie offered includes “Sleeping Beauty,” “The Three Caballeros” and “Hercules,” taking back older fans to when they were kids.


I highly recommend Disney+ for all the content they are creating and putting into the service. It is great for families and fans of the studios Disney has bought. 


For the price is affordable and they offer a good deal when combined with other services. 


Despite limiting the number of watchers to four, the service is still great and has something to offer for everyone.
