D23 Fan Expo Panel: Disney Plus

Disney is getting into the streaming business with the much anticipated Disney+ Streaming Service.

We know that launch date is November 12th for the U.S., Canada, Netherlands, Australia and New Zealand will be available on November 19th. You can subscribe for $6.99 or bundle with Hulu and ESPN for $12.99.

The following has been rumored but not confirmed yet:

  • 7 different people can set up profiles within a Disney+ subscription, all of which can be given a name, a Disney character avatar and will store their own watch lists etc.
  • There can be 4 concurrent streams at once. Which means 4 people can watch Disney+ at the same time with the one account.

From the jam packed panel we picked these as the highlights:

Live action Lady and the Tramp: the pups are coming back in this live action film, as reported previously most of the cast come from rescues and all have been adopted into loving homes after filming.

The first trailer for the live-action dropped Friday with Justin Theroux voicing mutt Tramp and Tessa Thompson voicing high-class Lady . Nice nod to D23 at sec 51 of the trailer

Grab a cup of joe and sit down with your favorite kooky uncle, to find out what The World According to Jeff Goldblum looks like. And based on the new trailer that debuted at Disney’s D23 Expo, it looks pretty magical. The National Geographic original series, which is set to premiere on Disney+, follows actor and jazz musician extraordinaire Jeff Goldblum as he pursues his various, wildly different, interests and becomes a “humble student” of the world. Watch The World According to Jeff Goldblum trailer below.

Everyone involved with The Mandalorian had stayed relatively hush-hush about the series until now, with only a couple of details mentioned with its announcement. We knew it takes place about five years after Return of the Jedi — so a few decades before Force Awakens. Favreau had also said that it follows “the travails of a lone gunfighter in the outer reaches of the galaxy” — which we later learned would be played by Pedro Pascal. And here’s the full trailer:

Continuing in the Star Wars universe, to the delight of the entire room and galaxy, it was announced that Obi Wan Kenobi will be returning to the screen and that Ewan McGregor will be reprising his role. The currently untitled series will follow Kenobi eight years after the events of Revenge of the Sith saw the Jedi purged by the fallen Anakin Skywalker and Sheev Palpatine. Set approximately around the time Solo: A Star Wars Story is set, the show will follow Obi-Wan in exile on the planet Tatooine to watch over the hidden son of Anakin and his wife Padmé, Luke.
