Disney Plus will roll out in the United States on November 12 at a price of $6.99 per month, well below the $13 monthly fee charged by Netflix, which holds a dominant position in the streaming sector.

First up, you can see the logo for The Mandalorian on both the main page for Disney+ and the dedicated Star Wars page.

One of the most exciting announcements made today is that within the first year, Disney+ will release more than 25 original series and 10 original movies, specials, and documentaries.

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

Not every hero can headline their own Marvel movie. Each episode will explore a pivotal moment from the Marvel Cinematic Universe and turn it on its head, leading the audience into uncharted territory. That includes "Captain Marvel", which came out earlier this year; "Avengers: Endgame", which debuts in late April; and the upcoming "Toy Story 4", live-action movies "The Lion King" and "Aladdin;" and "Star Wars Episode IX". Disney+ hasn't yet announced a release date for any of the series.

The company had started developing potential shows for the service long back and many of them hails from Star Wars, Pixar, and Marvel.
