Disney has revealed the full launch line-up for its streaming service Disney+, which will debut in the US next month.
Original productions like Star Wars spin-off The Mandalorian have until now been pitched as the major draw for subscribers. But the entertainment giant isn’t neglecting its inimitable back catalogue, digging deep into the vault to offer more than 600 movies, cartoons, animated series and documentaries from as far back as the 1940s.
Modern classics like Monsters Inc. and Marvel’s Iron Man are expected and will be available from day one, when Disney+ launches on 12 November.
Also available are noughties kids’ cartoon Recess, seasonal specials like Beauty and the Beast: The Enchanted Christmas, 1964 musical Mary Poppins, National Geographic’s Titanic: 20 Years Later with James Cameron, and nearly every Star Wars movie, live-action, animated, LEGO or otherwise.
A subscription will give consumers access to all 30 seasons of The Simpsons – one of the highest-profile gains from Disney’s 21st Century Fox merger – Gordon Ramsey: Uncharted, which follows the foul-mouthed chef on an outdoorsy culinary odyssey, and other surprised like The Computer Wore Tennis Shoes, an early sci-fi drama starring 18-year-old Kurt Russell.
There are dozens, if not hundreds, of other shows and straight-to-VHS movies that pad out the offering, but to avoid turning this article into an endless scroll, The Verge has compiled a list of every show Disney revealed in a near 400-strong stream of Tweets over here.
As Disney readies the service, UK consumers have been among the most vocal in their pleas for a launch date. So far only five markets have been given a concrete release: the US, Canada and the Netherlands – on day one – followed by Australia and New Zealand on 19 November.
