Disney has announced their launch line up for the Disney+ Streaming Service, and the list of films, TV shows, specials, and more is simply staggering. While we’ve known for awhile that shows like the live action Star Wars show, The Mandalorian, and the live action version of the Disney Classic Lady and the Tramp would be available from day one, nobody could have predicted a launch lineup like this.
In fact, it took Disney three hours to announce it all earlier today in 300 tweets on Twitter. You can follow along with the fun of the content revelations by clicking here, but be warned — it will take you some time to get through them all. The list doesn’t include previously announced shows, like the Marvel Studios projects in development. This list is just what is available on Disney+ from day one. In other words, there is even more content coming!
It. Is. Time. From Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs to The Mandalorian, check out basically everything coming to #DisneyPlus in the U.S. on November 12.

The highlights include major Disney classics like Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs, Pinocchio, and Dumbo, as well as all of the Star Wars films. A good majority of the 23 Marvel Studios films are also included, with the others being added as the service goes on. Disney TV shows like DuckTales and Fox shows like X-Men: The Animated Series are also available from day one.
Every generation and iteration of Disney is available, from live action family films of the 1940s and ’50s, like Swiss Family Robinson and Treasure Island, and films of the 1960s like The Parent Trap and even The Computer Wore Tennis Shoes, starring a very young Kurt Russell.
The acquisition of the 20th Century Fox film library and Lucasfilm archives mean that The Sandlot and Willow, among many others, will be available at launch.
The big Disney Animation films of the late ’80s and the 1990s will be available, with most of the direct-to-video sequels also on the list. So if you want to re-watch the original Lion King, you can and then check out its two sequels, The Lion King II: Simba’s Pride and The Lion King 1 1/2.
More recent hits are also on the list, including Big Hero 6 and Moana, and most of the Pixar films.
The Disney+ launch list even includes tons of content from the National Geographic channel and all 30 season of The Simpsons. There are easily thousands of hours of content coming from Disney from day one, and already, Disney+ has made a name for itself in the ever-growing streaming marketplace.
Check out the Twitter link above for a full and comprehensive list of all that will be available on Disney+ on launch day. The service launches on November 12 and will cost $6.99 a month, or $69.99 a year.
