Disney has unveiled a robust unscripted slate for its Disney + service ahead of revealing new details of its SVOD to investors later today (11 April).

The ad-free monthly subscription called Disney+ is set to launch on November 12 and in every major global market over time, the company said. Naturally, the service will also be supported on numerous other devices such as computers, smartphones, streaming media players/devices, and many others.

High School Musical will also be getting a series only available on Disney+, while all 30 seasons of The Simpsons are coming exclusively to the streamer as well, with Disney tweeting out a welcome to the long-running animated series. There also will be a series based on Star Wars that focuses on a bounty hunter like Boba Fett, and one produced by Marvel that has to do with the Avengers characters. Jon Favreau's The Mandalorian, numerous Marvel Cinematic Universe films, all of the Star Wars films, the live-action Lady and the Tramp remake, most of the Pixar library, and much more will be available for fans when Disney Plus premieres.

Within the first year of launch, which begins on November 12, audiences can have access to Disney's entire Pixar film collection, as well as Marvel's most recent superhero release Captain Marvel and many more of the studios popular films.

Disney fans, prepare yourselves for an onslaught of exciting new (and nostalgic) content.
