The reveal left many a bit shaken today as Disney finally kicked in the door of the streaming game with a price point and bevy of content that will give other major streamers a run for their money. A lot was covered during the almost 3-hour presentation, so let's dive in on everything you need to know. While each rectangle represents a different movie or show, there are also rectangles for different categories of content including those produced by Disney, Pixar, Marvel, Star Wars and National Geographic. Pricing will be $6.99 a month with an annual plan costing $69.99.

You will be available to use the Disney+ service on a wide range of mobile and connected devices, including gaming consoles, streaming media players and smart TVs. Disney+ will also be the exclusive streaming home of Avengers: Endgame after its theatrical and home entertainment release.

Within the first year of launch, which begins on November 12, audiences can have access to Disney's entire Pixar film collection, as well as Marvel's most recent superhero release Captain Marvel and many more of the studios popular films. These films, most of which have previously been rotated in and out of the 'vault, ' include both classics and contemporary titles, such as Pinocchio, Cinderella, The Little Mermaid, The Lion King, and Snow White.

The Beresheet team members worked in the control room as Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu watched from a spectator area. An additional $5 million was available for various special accomplishments, bringing the contest's total purse to $30 million.

Feige added that the Disney+ Loki series will be so large, and history-spanning in scale that its story is really something that could only be told over the course of a longform story, which really makes it seem as if when these series launch, they're going to be required watching for MCU completionists.

The Fox takeover helps Disney tighten its control over TV shows and movies from start to finish - from creating the programs to distributing them though television channels, movie theatres, streaming services and other avenues. Feige said that one of the first episodes will ask the question: What if Peggy Carter (Hayley Atwell) had become the super soldier instead of Steve Rogers (Chris Evans), and Rogers instead joined the fight wearing a suit designed by Howard Stark? "WandaVision" will be a live-action series with Elizabeth Olsen as Wanda Maximoff and Paul Bettany as The Vision. Since Disney now owns a majority stake in video streamer Hulu following its acquisition of 21st Century Fox, it plans to offer a combined subscription price for Disney+, ESPN+, and Hulu. The show will be based on Luna's character, Cassian Andor.

But suffice to say that the interface looks a lot like the interface for Apple TV or Netflix (think of a grid of brands and content).
