Disney+ will cost $6.99 a month or $69.99 a year.

The entire Disney Classic animated movie collection will be available at launch: This is the news that Disney nerds care about the most.

First up, the Disney+ essentials.

Disney original films were also announced to arrive within a year of the service. The film will also star actor Bill Hader. And with Disney+ set to launch later this year, the big company is only now offering a first look at what's coming down the pike.

The Disney+ interface offers a similar design to other streaming services, with rows of icons for recommended content, recently watched titles, newly added titles, and different genres. Starting November 12, you'll be able to stream hundreds of Disney-owned movies, shows, and originals!

All episodes from the show's 30 seasons are being made available on the service at launch.

Netflix "seeded the marketplace" for Disney+, by licensing some of its content over the past few years, Disney boss Bob Iger told CNBC Friday.

With so many properties under its umbrella, Disney had to find a way to make all of that content easy to find. All episodes of The Simpsons will be on the platform from the first day, and episodes of Malcolm in the Middle will also be available.

Tom Hiddleston will star in one of three new Marvel series on the new Disney+ streaming service.

Meanwhile, Kevin Feige, President of Marvel Studios, showed off a clip of "Avengers: Endgame", saying that the upcoming film, due out in theaters April 26, would land on Disney+ after its theatrical release window. Feige said that one of the first episodes will ask the question: What if Peggy Carter (Hayley Atwell) had become the super soldier instead of Steve Rogers (Chris Evans), and Rogers instead joined the fight wearing a suit designed by Howard Stark?

Disney is making more content for adults now and it does appeal to the masses with Star Wars, Marvel, etc. Let's be clear: Disney is not going to be making the next Ozark.

Kathleen Kennedy said that all of the now available Star Wars movies will arrive on the service, with future titles to be included as well.

A fifth series called Hawkeye, starring Jeremy Renner, has also been rumoured.

There's another Star Wars spinoff coming in the shape of a show centred on Rebel Alliance spy Cassian Andor.

More than 250 hours of National Geographic documentaries and series will be on Disney Plus on day one, including award-winning films like "Free Solo" and "Jane" and series "Brain Games" and "One Strange Rock".
