The Walt Disney Company Names New Streaming Service DISNEY+

The name of the much-anticipated streaming service, which will launch in 2019, by The Walt Disney Company, has been dubbed, Disney+.

The company also announced, in conjunction with the new branding, two major announcements in shows that will debut with the service. Another Star Wars spinoff will feature Diego Luna reprise his role from Rogue One: A Star Wars Story as Cassian Andor, which will take place prior to the movie and, in Marvel news, confirming what had long-been speculated, Tom Hiddleston will star in the Loki standalone series.

Jon Favreau’s Star Wars series, The Mandalorian, will also debut on the service, while the company will dish out a laundry list of past Disney favorites along with the complete catalogue of Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) and Star Wars films.

Considering the success of Disney films and television over the past years and that the company has already made the money back in its deal with Lucasfilm, but also the victories at the box office by films like Avengers: Infinity War and Star Wars: The Force Awakens, it looks like this will make for a formidable service for fans of all ages!

Look for Disney+ to debut in ‘late 2019’, but for more information regarding the announcement, click HERE.
