Disney+ streaming service unveils price, November launch date

Fans can finally prepare for the highly-anticipated Disney Plus streaming service, which debuts later this year.

PRICES | $6.99 per month; $69.99 for an annual subscription. Disney is flexing pretty hard right now with all of these announcements and it's going to be insane when they finally release their streaming service later this year.

Disney also owns a controlling stake in streaming service Hulu.

Star Wars was always going to be one of the main Disney+ draws, so for those of you who had been hoping that you'd be able to watch all the movies set in a galaxy far, far away on the service, your wish has been granted.

The entire Disney Signature Collection, featuring films like Snow White, Beauty and the Beast, and Cinderella, will be available at launch. The extensive Disney+ library, including Mary Poppins, Alice in Wonderland (2010) and much more will all be available the day the streaming service launches.

Lyft investors bail as Uber IPO prospect casts a looming shadow
Uber could finally start going public on Thursday-and the company hopes to achieve one of the biggest tech IPOs in history. In a regulatory filing , Uber said it will list its shares on the New York Stock Exchange under the symbol "UBER".

All Pixar films will be available within the first year of launch and all Pixar theatrical shorts will be available from Day 1.

The founding trio, David Gelb, Brian McGinn and Jason Sterman, will also create and develop additional content for all Disney platforms.

Disney+ will become available to subscribers in the United States on Tuesday, Nov. 12.

Also in the works are live-action films based on animated classics (like Lady and the Tramp, starring Tessa Thompson and Justin Theroux), as well as new series developed from films such as Monsters Inc. and High School Musical. Marvel heroes like Falcon, Winter Soldier, and Scarlet Witch are all getting shows, and there will also be live-action spinoff shows for the Star Wars franchise.

The Disney+ news comes just weeks after Disney completed its acquisition of 21st Century Fox, and the streaming service closed out its presentation by announcing that a Fox staple, The Simpsons, will be coming to Disney+.
