Disney fans will now know when the company’s streaming service will begin. 

Mark your calendars, Disney+ will be available starting Nov. 12, The Associated Press reported

The cost will be $6.99 a month and will be cheaper than competitor Netflix’s $13 a month for it’s most popular plan, according to the AP.

Engadget reported subscribers can also opt for a yearly plan that will cost $69.99.

Disney+ has been promised to show all of the Walt Disney Company’s holdings, including, Disney, Pixar, Marvel, “Star Wars” and even National Geographic shows and movies.

Company officials announced the streaming service, which will be available on mobile devices, smart TVs, streaming players and gaming consoles, will have more than 25 original series and 10 original films, documentaries and specials.

Among the original Disney+ titles: 

  • “The Falcon and The Winter Soldier” staring Anthony Mackie and Sebastian Stan.
  • “WandaVision” staring Elizabeth Olsen and Paul Bettany.
  • “The World According to Jeff Goldblum” documentary from National Geographic.
  • “The Mandalorian” first scripted, live-action “Star Wars” series.
  • Cassian Andor series based on the “Rogue One” character played by Diego Luna and joined by Alan Tudyk as K-2SO.

To go along with all of the “Star Wars” and Marvel shows and movies, Disney+ will also have the entire 30 seasons of “The Simpsons” available on the first day, as well as 7,500 television episodes and 500 films the Mouse House now owns after the finalization of its deal with Fox. Disney paid $71.3 billion in 2018 to buy Fox assets, The New York Times reported. It took official control of the company last month.
