According to CNBC, there will be Marvel, Star Wars, Pixar, and every kind of content you could want from Disney. "On the service will be a catalog of Disney’s classic animated features and TV shows as well as live-action flicks and shows, including fan favorites like Lizzie McGuire and Hannah Montana.

Jennifer Lee, chief creative officer of Walt Disney Animation Studios, stated, "one of the things I am most excited about is that we have the unique opportunity to extend our stories with characters our audiences know and love as well as explore new types of storytelling and animation with emerging filmmakers and show it all exclusively on Disney+."

Disney is a content giant and their TV shows and movies are what we all grew up with, so nostalgia is a big part of all this. We are finally getting on demand access to much of their entire library, which may sway many people away from competitors like Netflix.

What's interesting to note is that this streaming platform gives Disney the ability to create new content we might not have received otherwise, like a behind-the-scenes look at how movies are being made. Disney+ will have something for everyone!
