What Can We Expect From Disney's Streaming Service?

Disney Streaming Service Details Surface; No R-Rated Content or Netflix Marvel Shows

We all knew it was coming eventually as major companies look to secure a part of the streaming market, but details have finally emerged as to the plans for Disney's streaming site.

As Recode spotted, Disney CEO Bob Iger told investors during the company's earnings call that ESPN Plus will feature content "not now featured on the main channels".

For starters, Disney's Streaming Service does not have a name or a price point yet.

Additionally, Disney's new platform won't include any R-rated films, shifting any pics with a mature rating over to competing streaming service Hulu, and will begin domestically before expanding to global access. It would appear that ESPN Plus is a glorified beta program for Disney to work on its live-streaming technology without having to cannibalize any of its cable content, so don't be surprised if it turns out to be a giant flop.

Within the first year, Disney hopes to launch four or five original movies and five TV series.

The streamer will adopt Disney's family-friendly brand, which means Star Wars and Marvel are A-O.K., though Marvel's gritty Netflix series will stay where they are.

According to Deadline, Disney's SVOD TV development will cost between $25 million and $35 million for 10 episodes, though the company is leaving room for a more starry-eyed series to have a budget cap of $100 million for a 10-episode season.

Perhaps the most exciting announcement, however, is that there will be five television series produced for the initial launch of the service, including an animated Monsters, Inc. series, a live-action Marvel series, a Star Wars project and a High School Musical Series.

Some of the projects that are already slated for release on the service are the films Don Quixote, Lady and the Tramp, The Paper Magician, Stargirl, and Togo. There will also be movies including 3 Men and a Baby; Sword and the Stone; and Timmy Failure.

There are also some projects in post-production, which include Magic Camp (directed by Mark Waters) and Noelle, which stars Anna Kendrick, Bill Hader, and Shirley MacLaine. How this affects the current United Kingdom straming service, Disney Life, remains to be seen.
