Here’s Everything We Know Coming to Disney’s Streaming Service…
Disney Back Catalog
One of the biggest draws to this new streaming service is the incredible amount of classic Disney that will be included. Disney fans will be able to watch their favorite films when they want, where they want. It’s like someone wished upon a star!

The same goes for Pixar, with the amount of content that’s available. Anyone else here ready for a Pixar weekend binge? I know I am.
21st Century Fox Back Catalog (Including National Geographic)
While there were countless reasons behind the Disney-Fox acquisition, one can only assume that the value of having the bulk of 21st Century Fox’s content to feed a new streaming channel is a brilliant move. I mean, think about it, there are over 600 Simpson’s episodes alone.
Disney Imagineering Docuseries
Bob Iger announced, with the name of Disney+, the addition of a great docuseries on Walt Disney Imagineering and added that the series would include images and stories they had never shared before.

It has remained unnamed, but we do know that it will be a prequel series for Cassian Andor from “Rogue One.” Currently being produced with a 100 million dollar budget for 10-episodes, it’s shaping up to be a severe undertaking by Disney and one that many fans look forward to.
