We’ve been bigging it up for a while now and finally, we can have an actual look at it.

Disney+ or DisneyPlus or Disney- -n isn’t out yet, but it has a release date and we can have a little look at what it’s going to look like.

Coming out on the 12th of November, Disney+ is available for the – genuinely surprising – reasonable price of $6.99 a month or $69.99 a year. I’m not sure whether that directly translates into the British pound but with the current exchange rate, that’s £5.35 or £53.55.

As you might have expected, the service will of course be ad-free, and will have access to every Star Wars, Disney-Marvel and Pixar film, amongst many more.

Disney have confirmed that shows and films will be available for download, meaning you can watch them offline and rather excitingly for people like me – who don’t live in America – they’re considering rolling Hulu out internationally, perhaps bundling said service with ESPN+ and Disney+.

Claimed by Disney in the Fox merger, National Geographic content will also be available on the service, along with general Disney-made things, like Frozen 2 and… Chicken Run?

As you may know, though, many original series will be coming to the service. We already knew about the Star Wars show The Mandalorian, but the Marvel shows – of which not much was known – have been confirmed, and they sound amazing.

Maybe a tiny bit overkill but I still can’t wait.

Also, weirdly, a live-action Lady and the Tramp is coming to Disney+. I’m not sure anyone wants that.

Oh well. There’s something we do want, though; all the episodes of Malcolm in the Middle
