Disney+ unveils launch catalogue

Disney+ today unveiled almost every title coming to the new streamer when it launches in the US next month, including iconic titles and hidden gems from its extensive catalogue.

The service took to Twitter this afternoon to unroll an exhaustive message thread that stretched to hundreds of tweets, each displaying a title card of a film or series coming to the service on November 12.

Beginning with Snow White & the Seven Dwarves from 1937, it took almost three hours for every title to be revealed, in chronological order, ending with Star Wars spin-off The Mandalorian, which is set to be the flagship new series marking the launch of Disney+.

Other titles highlighted include Marvel Studios blockbusters Captain Marvel, Ant-Man, Avengers: Age of Ultron and Guardians of the Galaxy, as well as Disney animated movies Cinderella, Hercules, Moana, The Emperor’s New Groove, Beauty & the Beast, Moana, Aladdin, Tangled and The Incredibles.

Pixar movies on the service include Toy Story, Finding Nemo and Inside Out, alongside Disney live-action films 10 Things I Hate About You, High School Musical, Descendants and The Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, The Witch & the Wardrobe.

Star Wars: The Force Awakens will stand with National Geographic’s Oscar-winning documentary Free Solo, while animated series Duck Tales, Adventures of the Gummi Bears, Chip ’n’ Dale: Rescue Rangers, Darkwing Duck and Goof Troop feature with live-action series Lizzy McGuire, Halloweentown, Heavyweights, Boy Meets World, Brink and The Cheetah Girls

High School Musical: The Musical: The Series will also be available at launch, following the first episode airing https://www.c21media.net/disney-to-use-tv-to-tease-musical-reboot/ on linear nets ABC, Disney Channel and Freeform.

Disney+ initially took to Twitter to announce: “From Snow White & the Seven Dwarfs to The Mandalorian, check out basically everything coming to #DisneyPlus in the US on November 12.”

Worringly for its competitors, with Disney+ going head-to-head with Netflix, Amazon Prime Video and Apple+, a final message at the end of the thread said: “The announcements aren’t even over yet… Stay tuned for more soon!”

Disney+ is the dedicated streaming platform that will bring together content from Disney, Pixar, Marvel, Star Wars, National Geographic and others. It will also launch in Canada and the Netherlands on November 12, with the service going live in Australia and New Zealand on November 19.

The direct-to-consumer outlet will offer ad-free programming for US$6.99 a month, featuring a mix of feature-length movies, documentaries, live-action and animated series and shortform content.
