Disney+ is an American streaming service for on-demand televised and cinematic content from The Walt Disney Company. It launched on November 12, 2019.

HistoryEdit

The service was first announced in late 2017,[2] with a plan of producing original film and television material in addition to catalog content.[3] Disney CEO Bob Iger revealed that "a few" Star Wars series were among the content that would be produced for the service.[4] Some of these will be The Mandalorian,[5] a revival season of Cartoon Network's animated series Star Wars: The Clone Wars,[6] and a second yet untitled Star Wars television series centered on Cassian Jeron Andor.[7] In May 2019, Iger said that a third live-action show may premiere on the service sometime prior to the release of the 2022 Star Wars film,[8] which was later revealed to be an untitled Star Wars television series centered on Obi-Wan Kenobi.[9] According to Variety, all of the service's original content will have "broad family appeal."[10]

All Star Wars films were added to Disney+ within the first year of the service,[11] and The Mandalorian premiered when Disney+ debuted.[12]
