After earlier details this year, Disney has finally confirmed that Disney + will be coming to Australia later this year.
Disney Plus, the entertainment giant’s rival to Netflix and Stan, will launch on November 12, and will be available in Australia and New Zealand on November 19. Australians will be able to stream the latest Star Wars, Marvel and Pixar movies, as well as a host of original content, for $8.99 a month (or $89 a year).
Disney content – including the Marvel pictures – had previously been available on Netflix, but that deal ended in Febuary
Original programs will be one of the big selling points of Disney Plus. As the company has already hinted, its Marvel original shows, for example, will be important to keep up with what gets played out on the big screen in cinemas.
Other original shows, such as the live-action, big-budget Star Wars spin-off The Mandalorian, will be available at the service’s launch. Customers will also have access to a vast library of Disney’s and Fox’s legacy content, as well as movies and documentaries.
