After months of speculation Disney has unleashed its battle plan for Netflix challenger Disney+, though it is unclear if Australians will have access to the behemoth streaming service at its November 12 US launch.

Disney took to Twitter to announce that within the first two years the service will be available in all major regions. And for the US launch, Disney has prepared a dazzling amount of content.

Launching at $US6.99 a month or $US69.99 a year, the service will be anchored by top-drawer new attractions and classic mass-market fare – including the highly anticipated Star Wars live-action series The Mandalorian as well as Marvel’s newest billion-dollar film Captain Marvel and even a live-action Lady and the Tramp movie.

Within the first year, all Pixar films will be available as well as all the Star Wars films.

At launch, there will be 250 hours of National Geographic content, including a new series narrated by Jeff Goldblum, 5000 episodes of Disney Channel content, and 100 Disney Channel original movies.

In addition, viewers will be able to “rediscover” 7,500 episodes and 500 films, according to a tweet on Disney’s official Twitter page.

And as a result of the Disney/Fox merger, which went through earlier this year, Disney+ will become the streaming home to every episode of The Simpsons.

There are three separate live-action Marvel series` in the works, with the Marvel Cinematic Universe actors set to reprise their roles.

The Elizabeth Olsen and Paul Bettany series now has the official title of Wandavision. The other two, one featuring Sebastian Stan as Winter Soldier and Anthony Mackie as Falcon, has not received an official title or release date, nor has Tom Hiddleston’s Loki series.

In the tsunami of information released on Friday, there was also an update on the Star Wars Rogue One prequel series, unofficially titled Cassian Andor.

Among the major streaming services, Disney Plus comes in as the cheapest – beating Netflix, whose standard US plan comes in at at almost twice the price.

With Disney president Bob Iger to retire in 2021 after leading the Mouse House empire since 2012. Disney+ appears a hell of a legacy to leave behind.
