Disney is flexing pretty hard right now with all of these announcements and it's going to be insane when they finally release their streaming service later this year.

Disney+, which is Disney's first foray into direct-to-consumer streaming service, will debut exclusively in the USA sometime this fall.

Animated classics including Snow White, Cinderella, Aladdin, Beauty and the Beast, Moana, and The Little Mermaid will all be available to stream when Disney+ launches, and Pixar's entire library (including its shorts) will be available within the year.

Disney+ will become available to subscribers in the United States on Tuesday, Nov. 12. In addition to this, the service includes parental controls, offline viewing, 4K HDR support and will be priced at $6.99 a month or $69.99 a year. The above image comes straight from Disney, so they clearly have intentions of the service hitting Switch. To celebrate the upcoming Frozen 2, a first-of-its-kind documentary series called Into the Unknown: Making Frozen 2 will feature behind-the-scenes looks at the film.
