However, the streamer is also introducing new content under its flagship brand, spanning unscripted, live-action and musical series that will be available at launch.

That includes Encore!, the Kristen Bell-produced series that tasks former high school musical cast mates with recreating their original performance despite faded friendships, former flames, self-doubt and more.

The Disney lineup also includes High School Musical: The Musical, the 10-episode scripted series that follows a group of East High students leading up to the production of the titular musical from 2006.

On the other hand, Disney is taking fans behind the scenes of the Disney Parks dream with The Imagineering Story. Across six hour-long episodes, the series recounts the process of creating the world’s most iconic theme park through interviews and archival footage.

Disney will continue offering an inside look with One Day at Disney, the 52-episode short-form series that takes an in-depth look at the people behind the magic. The series mirrors a collectible book and feature-length documentary, which launches simultaneously on Nov. 12.

Perhaps most talked about, however, is Disney’s newest live-action film adaption, Lady and the Tramp. Hailing from Walt Disney Studio, the film retells the 1955 classic story about a pampered house dog and a rustic stray who embark on an unexpected adventure.

Disney is also jumping into the holidays with its new comedy film, Noelle, starring Anna Kendrick and Bill Hader as Santa’s children. As Nick (Hader) prepares to take over his father’s role, Noelle (Kendrick) suggests he take a break and get away. However, when he doesn’t return, Noelle must track him down in order to save Christmas.

Lady and the Tramp and Noelle join the extensive list of classic Disney films that will be available on the service at launch such as Bambi, Sleeping Beauty, Aladdin, The Parent Trap and many more. That’s in addition to seven Marvel films, 9 Star Wars films and Pixar’s newest addition, Onward.


All of this and more will be available at launch on Nov. 12. Subscription plans for Disney+ begin at $6.99/month or $69.99/year.
