Disney+ (or Disney Plus)[1][2][3] is an upcoming over-the-top subscription video on-demand service owned and operated by Walt Disney Direct-to-Consumer and International. It is set to launch in the United States in 2019 and will be focused on film and television content from Walt Disney Studios. Original films and TV series based on new and existing properties are also planned, including Disney, Pixar, Marvel, Star Wars and National Geographic-based content.

It is set to compete with other video streaming subscription services such as Netflix and will complement Hulu, which Disney has a 60% ownership stake in.

In August 2016, Disney acquired a minority stake in BAMTech (a spin-out of MLB Advanced Media's streaming technology business) for $1 billion, with an option to acquire a majority stake in the future. Following the purchase, ESPN announced plans for an "exploratory [over-the-top] project" based on its technology (ESPN+) to supplant its existing linear television services.[4][5] On August 8, 2017, Disney invoked its option to acquire a controlling stake in BAMTech for $1.58 billion, increasing its stake to 75%. Alongside the acquisition, the company also announced plans for a second, Disney-branded direct-to-consumer service drawing from its entertainment content, which would launch after the company ends its existing distribution agreement with Netflix in 2019.[6][7]

In December 2017, Disney announced its intent to acquire key entertainment assets from 21st Century Fox. The acquisition, intended to bolster Disney's content portfolio for its streaming products,[8][9] closed on March 20, 2019.[10]

In January 2018, it was reported that former Apple and Samsung executive Kevin Swint had been appointed senior vice president and general manager of the new service reporting to BAMTech CEO.[11][12] In June 2018, former Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures marketing president Ricky Strauss was named president of content and marketing for the service.[13][14] On November 8, 2018, Disney CEO Bob Iger announced that the service would be named Disney+, and that the company was targeting a launch in late 2019.[15] It has been reportedly planned for a September launch.[16]


The service will be built around content from Disney's main entertainment studios, including Walt Disney Pictures, Walt Disney Animation Studios, Pixar, Marvel Studios, Lucasfilm, 20th Century Fox, and National Geographic. The service will operate alongside Hulu—an existing over-the-top service in which Disney holds 60% ownership following its Fox purchase. Bob Iger stated that Disney+ would be focused specifically on family-oriented entertainment (not carrying any R-rated content), and that Hulu would remain oriented towards general entertainment.[17][15][18]

It is expected that the service will have approximately 7000 episodes of television and 500 movies.[19] Films from the Walt Disney Studios library that will reportedly be available for streaming through the service include Disney and Pixar theatrical animated features, Disney live-action films, Marvel Cinematic Universe films, Disneynature, 20th Century Fox films,[20] National Geographic content,[21][22] and shorts from Pixar's "SparkShorts" program.[23] Captain Marvel will be the first theatrically released Disney film to stream exclusively on Disney+.[24]

The service will eventually host the entire Disney film library, including movies currently in the "Disney Vault".[25][26] The first six films of the Star Wars film franchise will not be available at the service's launch, as their U.S. streaming rights are held by Turner Broadcasting through 2024.[27] New releases from 20th Century Fox will not immediately be available on Disney+, as Fox has an output deal with HBO until 2022.[28]

Original series based on Marvel properties and Star Wars are being produced, the latter including The Mandalorian, a television series set between Return of the Jedi and The Force Awakens, and a spin-off series focused on Cassian Andor from Rogue One.[29][30] The service's initial original content goal was planned to include four to five original movies and five television shows with budgets from $25–100 million.[18] In January 2019, it was reported that Disney will spend up to $500 million in original content for the service.[31] The Mandalorian is expected to cost $100 million.[32]
