Disney +, the new content service is here

Disney + premiered in mid-November 2019 in just five countries.

The bet was firm: to offer all the contents that it has, which are not few, in an online catalog that can be accessed from home whenever you want in exchange for a monthly fee. The kind of deal In this case it has an important advantage: in addition to all the “Disney proposals” that we already know, on the platform we will find all the films of universes as large as that of Marvel or Star Wars as well as endless documentaries of what the firm also owns.

And this is only the beginning: the company is already working to generate new and original content and the series The Mandalorian It is a good example of what can be done with the support of Disney +.

DISNEY

The Disney movie catalog is much bigger than you can imagine. There are many films that you probably have not seen as well as releases even of 50s (as is the case of the first Alice in Wonderland) that can also be viewed on the platform.

Break Ralph !, 01 Dalmatians, Aladdin, Big Hero 6, Snow White and the 7 Dwarfs, The Jungle Book, The Lion King, The Little Mermaid, The Chronicles of Narnia, Zootropolis… The list is really impressive, not only of films like those mentioned; also from TV series, very popular on the house channels and which also now carry the platform’s premiere.

Within the Disney segment we also have three special which are classified separately by their “special” nature:
