Disney+ Becomes Unavoidable Now That the Entire Disney Film Catalogue Will Be on It

With the arrival of Disney+, Disney’s upcoming streaming service, the Disney Vault will be no more! This means that classic Disney movies will no longer be unavailable to buy, because they’ll all be on the streaming service, and I’m talking ALL of them will be on the service.

According to Polygon, Bob Iger explained today that soon after Dinsey+ launches, the Vault program will be deep sixed, and the entire Disney library would then be streamable. This includes the MCU and Star Wars franchises as well. The service will also get all new Disney movies, MCU films, and Star Wars films within a year of their theatrical release.

I mean how can anyone pass on this service at this point? Star Wars fans have known since day one it’d be unavoidable thanks to the live-action shows being created for it, but now it’s completely unavoidable. Just ask any parent how helpful it’ll be to have the entire Disney catalogue at the tip of their fingers! It truly will be one of the greatest catalogues in streaming service history.

We still don’t have a go live date for the service, but I’d expect it to hit this fall, so stay tuned for more details as they become available.

Cassian Andor Live Action Series Announced for Disney+ Streaming Service

Lucasfilm and Disney just announced that a live action Cassian Andor series will be hitting Disney’s new streaming platform, which also got a name today in the form of Disney+.

This will be Disney’s second live action series for their streaming platform as it joins Jon Favreau’s The Mandalorian. The series will feature Cassian Andor from Rogue One, and the timeframe it will cover will take place before Rogue One. This means we will more than likely see his first meeting with K2, as well as more of his spy work for the Rebellion. We should also get to see how the Rebellion looked and operated during its formative years, which is a period we’ve touched on a bit in Star Wars Rebels. It will begin filming early in 2019.

To me this is fantastic news, and I hope more keeps coming. It’s clear now that Disney is going ALL IN on Disney+ thanks to its live action Marvel and Star Wars series, so it’s going to be nearly impossible to not subscribe to it if you’re a Marvel or Star Wars fan. The Disney+ service should launch towards the end of 2019.
