On Tuesday, Nov. 12, 2019, marked the first official day of streaming on Disney+. Disney+ is an all new streaming service created by Disney that combines all Disney-owned content from Disney Channel, Pixar, Marvel Studios, the Star Wars Universe and National Geographic. Costing $6.99 a month, fans can stream a range of titles such as “Cinderella,” “High School Musical,” “Wizards of Waverly Place,” “Avengers: Endgame” and more. Disney+ will also have its own original content that fans can stream. Some of these shows are already on Disney+ such as “The Mandalorian” directed by John Favreau and “Lady and the Tramp” starring Tessa Thompson. More original content is also expected to follow, including shows from Marvel Studios such as “The Falcon and the Winter Soldier” starring Sebastian Stan and Anthony Mackie and “Loki” starring Tom Hiddleston.

Many students have already started streaming Disney+, including sophomore Lindsay Hughes.

“I just got Disney+, I’m really excited,” Hughes said.

Hughes is eager to begin streaming, and binging, all the content available to her.

“I’m most excited to start watching all the old Disney movies and Disney shows from the Disney Channel like ‘Wizards of Waverly Place,’ ‘Hannah Montana’ and ‘Cinderella,’” Hughes said.

Hughes has started watching some of the content.

“I already watched ‘Cinderella’ and started watching ‘Wizards of Waverly Place’ all the way through from the beginning,” Hughes said. “It’s so good.”

Senior Adrian Brokenshire also got Disney+.

“I’m most excited to watch all the old Disney shows and animated movies, the princess ones like ‘Cinderella’ and ‘Beauty and the Beast,’” Brokenshire said.

Brokenshire is also going to watch some of the Marvel content.

“I’ve already seen all the Marvel movies before, but I’m excited to be able to watch them again and again,” Brokenshire said. “I’m also going to watch the new Marvel shows coming out soon like ‘Loki’ and ‘Falcon and the Winter Soldier.’”

With the range of content, a cost of $6.99 a month compared to Netflix’s cost of $8.99 a month, as well as original content, many are predicting Disney+ to bring in a big profit because it appears to have a little something for everyone.
