Disney now has a name for its upcoming streaming service. It will be called Disney+ and will launch late next year.

There’s no word on a UK launch window for the service. But that notification page does have a UK link, which suggests Disney is eyeing a UK launch at some point. Whether it will be at the same time as the US, we’ll have to wait and see.
Disney+ will offer exclusive shows and films, including the first ever live-action Star Wars TV series. There will also be a Loki-focussed Thor spinoff starring Tom Hiddleston, a reboot of High School Musical and new stories from the Monsters Inc universe.
Disney will also yank some of its properties from Netflix, which will soon be its arch rival. Expect Marvel and Star Wars to disappear from the world’s biggest streaming service.
Disney also owns Pixar and National Geographic, so its scope for additional content is pretty broad.
