Putting aside the awful news that Sony Pictures and Disney weren’t able to come to an agreement on a new financing and co-production deal (effectively booting Spider-Man from the MCU), there was plenty of exciting announcements last week, with most of them coming out of the D23 Expo in Anaheim, California. Until last weekend, details surrounding the upcoming Disney Plus streaming platform were, for all intents and purposes, rather vague.
Now, after a deluge of announcements, we’re a little more excited about what we can come to expect from the service during its first few years. And in case you haven’t been keeping up to date, here’s a complete list of all original movies and shows that subscribers will have access to. Take note, though, not all of these will be available on launch day!
- The Mandalorian – As the first live-action TV series in the history of Star Wars, this show was co-created by Iron Man director Jon Favreau and comes with a huge amount of hype surrounding it.
- High School Musical: The Musical: The Series – This tongue-twister of a show follows a group of students who try to stage their own production of the original High School Musical TV movie.
- Lady and the Tramp – This remake of the animated classic will be available on launch day.
- Noelle – Starring Anna Kendrick and Bill Hader, Noelle looks to be another holiday comedy that fans of Elf or The Santa Clause are sure to enjoy.
- Monsters At Work – This direct sequel to Pixar’s 2001 classic is a TV show that follows the exploits of Tylor Tuskman, the newest employee of Monsters, Incorporated.
- Untitled Star Wars: Rogue One Prequel Series – Not much is known about this one, except that Diego Luna and Alan Tudyk will reprise their roles of Cassian Andor and K-2SO
- Untitled Obi-Wan Kenobi Series – Our industry insider was right on the mark, seeing as how Ewan McGregor is, in fact, coming back to play the legendary Jedi.
