Disney+’s launch on Nov. 12 will come with a slew of new releases, such as the first ever Star Wars series, The Mandalorian, plus the live-action Lady and the Tramp, featuring the voices of Tessa Thompson, Janelle Monáe, and Justin Theroux. Also on the docket: High School Musical: The Musical: The Series and The World According to Jeff Goldblum.
On Friday, Disney took to Twitter to make the announcements and posters, which also include Noelle starring Bill Hader and Anna Kendrick. While these title announcements were previously made by Disney, it was unknown when they would release. The new streaming platform is set to house the entire Disney motion picture library, as well as Marvel originals and spinoffs.
Disney+ will offer a streaming bundle of Disney+, ESPN+, and the ad-supported version of Hulu for only $12.99 per month, which is the same price for Netflix's most popular plan, signaling another huge blow to the streaming giant as the pool of on-demand entertainment becomes increasingly competitive.
Individual plans for Disney+, ESPN+, and the basic tier of Hulu cost $6.99, $4.99, and $5.99, respectively, which means customers who decide to bundle the three services will save $5 each billing cycle.
While no date has been set, Disney+ is also planning to release a series from Marvel Studios for the character Ms. Marvel, per The Hollywood Reporter. Kamala Khan, the latest character to hold the Ms. Marvel mantle, counts as the first Muslim superhero to be featured in her own comic book title. Kevin Feige also announced that a She Hulk and Moon Knight series is headed to Disney+, Deadline reports. Feige, who made the announcement at D23, also said that "almost the entire cast of the MCU will be lending their voices to" Marvel’s What If…?, according to Entertainment Weekly. Hayley Atwell, who played Peggy Carter, will also be in the animated show as Captain Carter.
But that's not all.
Hilary Duff will be returning to Disney. Yes, Disney+ is rebooting Lizzie McGuire. The series will follow the titular character, played by the aforementioned Duff, as she tries to figure out life in New York City as a 30-year-old. The original Lizzie McGuire series aired from 2001-2004 on Disney Channel and ran for two seasons. The first season contained 31 episodes while the second season contained 34 episodes. Lalaine, Adam Lamberg, Jake Thomas, Hallie Todd, and Robert Carradine also starred in the show's original run. There was also The Lizzie McGuire Movie, which was released in 2003.
