Disney+ is an upcoming American provider of on-demand televised and cinematic content of productions by The Walt Disney Company, set to launch in the fall of 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 around Cassian Jeron Andor.[7] According to Variety, all of the service's original content will have "broad family appeal."[8]

All Star Wars films will be added to Disney+ within the first year of the service,[9] and The Mandalorian will premiere when Disney+ debuts.[10]
