We have known that Disney was planning to launch its own dedicated streaming service for quite some time. The result was an ambush of familiar, beloved entertainment brands from Star Wars to Pixar to Marvel to The Simpsons-which, due to Disney's acquisition of 21st Century Fox, will now have its exclusive home on Disney+.

At launch, the Disney+ streaming library will also include 18 Pixar titles, 13 Disney animated classics from the Disney Vault, every Star Wars movie, Marvel films, over 250 hours of National Geographic programming, and Disney Channel original movies.

This original content will come from 'some of the industry's most prolific and creative storytellers, ' the company said.

Launch is just the beginning, as Disney has major plans to develop lots more original TV shows and movies over the first year and beyond.

Giants hosting Oklahoma QB Kyler Murray for pre-draft visit
As one would expect, there is a lot of hype surrounding Murray before the Arizona Cardinals make the first pick in the draft. Another wrinkle is the availability of Josh Rosen , now an Arizona Cardinals quarterback.

Disney is planning a whopping 25 original series and 10 movies and specials in the first year alone.

I want one streaming service that offers TV shows, movies, and live TV in one bundle for a single attractive monthly fee - nice and simple. That undercuts Netflix, whose most popular US plan costs about $11 a month.

Unlike Netflix, Disney+ content won't be rated any higher than a 12A.

Disney plans to make this streaming service cheaper than Netflix, which starts at £5.99 per month.

Disney is hoping to undercut Netflix by charging less ($6.99 per month compared to Netflix's USA starting price of $8.99), though it's now unclear how these prices will translate in the UK.

Toy Story-based projects Forky Asks a Question, an animated short series, and the short film Lamp Life.

Exclusive shows in development for Disney+ include Marvel series focused on Hawkeye, Loki, Scarlet Witch and Vision, and Falcon and Winter Solider; an animated Marvel show titled Marvel's What If...? The service will also have a download function for offline viewing.

Also coming to Disney+ are Fox favorites such as "The Princess Bride" and "The Sound of Music", as well as 30 full seasons of "The Simpsons." . Disney is flexing pretty hard right now with all of these announcements and it's going to be insane when they finally release their streaming service later this year.

Disney ended a lucrative licensing relationship with Netflix in order to create the streaming service and faces challenges as it builds a service to compete with the entrenched streaming leaders.
