The Marvel shows on Disney+, however, will be overseen by Feige himself, and will be "major storylines set in the MCU with ramifications that will be felt both through the other Disney+ series we'll be producing and the future on the big screen", according to the MCU architect.

We'd already had official word from Disney and Marvel that Tom Hiddleston will be headlining his own Loki series, but yesterday's announcement gave us a logo for the Anthony Mackie and Sebastian Stan buddy series The Falcon and The Winter Soldier (see above) as well as the new title WandaVision for the Scarlet Witch and Vision show featuring Elizabeth Olsen and Paul Bettany.

In addition to theatrical and TV content from Disney's vast library, the service plans to release more than 25 original series and 10 original films, documentaries, and specials by "some of the industry's most prolific and creative storytellers".

"We believe Netflix can not win" such a war because of Disney's cost advantage from owning a vast amount of content. All this content will certainly make Disney+ a more attractive service and Disney CEO Bob Iger admits that the content was the reason Disney bought Fox.

Pixar Animation Studios • Toy Story-based projects, Forky Asks a Question animated short series, and Lamp Life short film.

Disney also announced that all 30 seasons of The Simpsons will be available on Disney+ from day, one and said the first year will include "family-friendly Fox titles" like The Sound of Music, The Princess Bride, and Malcolm in the Middle.

"We're extremely excited about our growing portfolio of direct-to-consumer offerings", said Kevin Mayer, Disney's chairman of direct-to-consumer and worldwide content. "As we demonstrated today, with Disney+ we will deliver extraordinary entertainment in innovative ways to audiences around the world", said Kevin Mayer, chair of Disney's direct-to-consumer efforts. "We're buying more movie-making capability", etc. As for Disney+ itself, it will launch on November 12.

As for the user experience, Disney promises that Disney+ subscribers will be able to create customer profiles and receive personalized experiences curated to their own unique tastes.

The Disney+ service will be available on a wide range of mobile and connected devices, including gaming consoles, streaming media players and smart TVs, and will adjust to the best possible high-definition viewing experience based on a subscriber's available bandwidth, with support for up to 4K HDR video playback.

Martin said that in polling, U.S. customers say they plan to use only two or three streaming services and that as a result, any growth in Disney+ will significantly weaken Netflix. An unprecedented amount of content will also be available to fans for offline viewing.
