We finally know when we can binge Disney films to our heart's content. Mark it on your calendars - Nov. 12, 2019. We will never leave our couches again.
Investors were so excited they pushed Disney's stock to a record $129.85. It helps that the price is pretty manageable at $6.99/month or $69.99/year.
At launch, Disney plans to have 18 Pixar films, all the animated classics - including 13 classics that have previously been locked inside the Disney vault, all the Star Wars films, Marvel titles like Black Panther and Captain Marvel, more than 250-sum-odd hours of National Geographic programming, 100+ Disney Channel Original Movies and nine exclusive originals.
Not to mention all 30 seasons of The Simpsons--the exclusive streaming source. And that's just the tip of the iceberg.
Disney treated us to our first look at Star Wars: Episode 9 - The Rise of Skywalker. It looks like Rey has definitely completed her training and it set to open up a whole can of force whoop a$$. What's more, the team at Lucasfilm gave the film a title that tells us we may not have gotten the full story of Rey's legacy in The Last Jedi.
Speaking of the Last Jedi, I know some of you are still mad at Lucasfilm. Heck, it's not my favorite movie. But, I do think we should give Lucasfilm head Kathleen Kennedy a chance to tell a complete story. Right now, we are only 8/9ths into a saga. If you hate episode 9, then feel free to burn you Star Wars flags in your mom's basement. Until then, realize that you can't judge a full saga by only a few episodes.
Not a whole lot to say here that hasn't already been said. This trailer looks life-like and every single animator that worked on it deserves a raise.
