The complete Disney+ launch lineup gets a three-and-a-half-hour trailer

Basically Everything Coming to Disney+ in the U.S. | Start Streaming November 12

Want to catch a glimpse of everything coming to Disney+? Have about three-and-a-half hours to spare? Well then, good news: Disney has just released a 3-hour, 17-minute “trailer” offering 15-second long previews of all of the 600-plus titles hitting Disney+ in the U.S. on launch day.

The promotional video contains mini-trailers for many of the most high-profile launches on Disney+, including The Mandalorian and the rest of the Star Wars franchise (aside from The Last Jedi and Solo: A Star Wars Story, which will arrive on the service later). Other highlights include ’90s favorites like Gargoyles and X-Men: The Animated Series, animated movies like Moana, Disney Channel original series including Hannah Montana and Even Stevens, vintage Hollywood classics, and more.

More intriguing, however, are the small peeks at Disney+’s obscure, nearly forgotten, and just plain bizarre offerings. In the video, you’ll catch glimpses of The Million Dollar Duck, which is about a duck that lays golden eggs after becoming irradiated in a lab accident, and Gus, a movie about a mule that leads his football team to the Super Bowl (he’s the team’s placekicker, naturally).

Those oddities — and plenty of others — will be available on Disney+ when the service launches on November 12, 2019. Disney+ will cost $7 a month (or $70 a year, if you sign up for 12 months at once), assuming you weren’t able to lock in any prerelease discounts.

If that’s not enough Disney for you, is also paying $1,000 to people who are willing to binge-watch 30 Disney movies and TV shows on Disney+. You can apply for that gig here.

Eventually, Disney+ will be the exclusive digital home for the complete Disney catalog (excluding the long-buried animated feature Song of the South), as well as significant portions of the Marvel, Fox, Lucasfilm, and National Geographic libraries. Disney+ isn’t all legacy content, either. Disney is developing numerous original series for the service, including multiple live-action Star Wars shows, a number of Marvel Cinematic Universe tie-ins, and a Muppets revival.

With its strong lineup and 4K-friendly streaming, Disney+ is poised to be a major player in the quickly escalating streaming wars. Soon, Disney competitors like Apple, NBCUniversal, and WarnerMedia will launch their own, brand-specific streaming services in attempts to take on the likes of Netflix, Hulu, and Amazon Prime.

Beyond The Bad Batch: what’s next for Star Wars animated shows
The members of Clone Force 99 in promo art for Star Wars: The Bad Batch season 2.

The Star Wars universe continues to expand its galaxy far, far away on Disney+ with supplemental content like the animated show The Bad Batch. Season 2 has just premiered on the streamer, continuing the intimately scaled and daring missions of the titular band of veterans formerly known as Clone Force 99.

The show has proven to be promising so far. Still, other animated works under the Star Wars corner of Disney have given fans a taste of how versatile it can be both conceptually and artistically. Visions was an anime spin on the mega-franchise, providing stylistically distinct approaches to it in a sort of "what if?" narrative format. This would be an exciting template for exploring the Legends continuity stories -- formerly known as the Expanded Universe -- that captivated so many longtime fans.

Want to stream in DTS:X? It’s coming in 2023 thanks to Disney+ and IMAX
Robert Downey Jr. In Avengers: Endgame.

In all the chaos and excitement that is CES 2023, you may have missed a quiet little announcement from Disney+ that could be music to your ears. Starting sometime in 2023, the streaming video service will be upgrading some of its premier Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) titles, like Avengers: Infinity War and Avengers: Endgame, with the DTS:X 3D surround sound format.

It's an expansion of the IMAX Enhanced format that Disney+ already uses on some MCU content to provide a more spacious 1.90:1 aspect ratio for key scenes, instead of the usual 2.39:1 or 2.40:1 ratios that create horizontal black bars when viewed on TVs with a 16:9 screen.

Disney+ launches cheaper plan with ads — but not on Roku
Disney Plus on Roku.

The new advertising-based tier of Disney+ launches today. And while it's not exactly the sort of thing that should demand a whole lot of explanation — it's a little less expensive at $8 a month, but also has ads — there is one important thing that should be noted.

This new ad-based tier isn't available if you're on Roku. And that's kind of a big deal since Roku is the largest streaming platform in the U.S. and the second largest in the rest of the world.
