Disney+ is a new app created by Disney that has old and recent movies, Tv’s shows and shorts from their whole catologe of disney properties and more. They are made by Marvel, Star Wars, Pixar, Disney, and National Geographic. It came out on November 12th, 2019.

Disney+ costs $6.99 a month or $69.99 per year. You can get the app for free on your phone, your television, your computer, and more devices. All you have to do after the app is downloaded is get a subscription and put your username and password in, and then you can watch away.

When you log into the app, it gives you a screen with different genres of movies, if you don’t see the movie you’re looking for or one that interests you, you can search any movie that was made by the five television production companies.

You can also click on categories, if you just want Disney, you can click on the Disney icon, if you want National geographics, you can click on the National Geographic icon. This is the same for Marvel, Star Wars and Pixar.

The competitors of Disney+ are Netflix, Hulu, Prime Video, and more. In response to Disney Plus dropping, Netflix signed a multi-year deal with Nickelodeon, to produce original animated films and series.

Now that Disney+ is a competitor of Netflix, Netflix had to come up with something to keep their subscribers and potentially get new ones.

In the first 24 hours of Disney+ being available, they gained over ten million subscribers. They also had 3.2 million mobile app downloads in the first 24 hours.

Some of the movie selections that Disney+ has are Pocohauntes, Secretariat, Mulan, Frozen, Avatar, Star Wars, Pinocchio, Dumbo and many more.

Dinsey has called Disney+ the future of the company. Much of Disney+’s orignial programming leans into the company’s big-budget franchises.

As these cold winter days approach us, think about sitting down and watching all of the Disney, Marvel, Pixar, National Geographic and Star Wars movies, and shows.
