The Disney+ shows and movies coming to the streaming service at the launch.
After months of waiting, Disney+ is finally here, and people are already signed up and ready to spend some time with their favorite Disney and Fox movies. But past films and TV shows are not the only things in offering at Disney+ in the coming days; the more and more new and original content will make their way to the streaming service.
The biggest release on the streaming service to coincide with the launch is obviously the 'Star Wars' prequel series, 'The Mandalorian.' The live-action 'Star Wars' series, which was long touted to be a possibility but never was, is finally making its bow on the streaming platform. According to the early fan reactions, it seems the show is pretty good, and you will also get another episode three days later.

While 'The Mandalorian' is a massive property coming to the streaming platform, unlike Apple TV+, which three all of their marquee properties on the day of the launch, Disney’s got the liberty to tease and take their time with new content releases. There is enough in the vault of Disney to keep the audiences busy for a while.
But just because Disney is opening up a vast library of the content does not mean they are resting on their laurels when original content concerned. Along with 'The Mandalorian,' there are other original series and movies available at launch, such as 'High School Musical The Series,' 'The World According to Jeff Goldblum,' 'Marvel’s Hero Project,' 'Encore!' and 'Pixar IRL.'

Most of the original content, available on the first day of the service, are unscripted reality type shows. Along with the original shows, Disney is also providing subscribers with 500 films and 7,500 episodes of Disney and Fox TV shows and almost all of the devices Disney+.
Five hundred movies are fine, but the one thing which is really interesting is the fact all the 'Star Wars' movies will be available in 4K Ultra HD, for the first time when it comes to seven out of the eight Star Wars movies released till now. But they are also not the only Disney property getting the fancy 4K treatment 'Hocus Pocus' and 'Who Framed Roger Rabbit' will also enjoy the high-resolution update along with all the 'Toy Story' movies.
