Every Disney movie ever! In one place!
The wait is (almost) over – Disney’s new streaming service has an Irish launch date.
Disney+ was launched in the US back in November, but will arrive in a certain number of European countries, including Ireland, on March 24.
For the price of €6.99 per month (or €69.99 for an annual subscription), you’ll be able to watch pretty much every single Disney, Pixar, Marvel and Star Wars movie ever made, along with 20th Century Fox TV shows and films like The Simpsons.
Disney+ has also got a ton of original programmes in the pipeline – one of the big draws was to be the Lizzie McGuire reboot, but the fate of the show is uncertain after creator and showrunner Terri Minsky quit earlier this month.
Disney released a statement saying that after filming two episodes, they decided that Lizzie needed to “move in a different creative direction” and production would be placed on hiatus while they “put a new lens on the show”.
Falcon & Winter Soldier, another Disney+ original based on characters from the Captain America films, also halted production this month due to the Puerto Rican earthquakes.
So what is available for Irish subscribers right now? Well, the service will launch with nearly 500 movies and 7,500 episodes of TV shows, so you’ll have loads to choose from.
New stuff includes The Mandalorian (yep, we’ll finally get to see Baby Yoda for ourselves), the super-meta High School Musical: The Musical: The Series, and a documentary series hosted by Jeff Goldblum.
Are you intrigued? We kinda are…
