Disney+ is a new app created by The Walt Disney Company tha has a variety of movies and tv shows for any age to pick from. It also streams Disney and Fox’s legacy content . The app came out on November 12th, but it was originally announced in September of 2017. Disney+ is currently available in the U.S, Canada, The Netherlands, Australia, and New Zealand. Disney+ will be released in the United Kingdom, Germany, France, Italy, and Spain on March 31, 2020.  Lots of people are talking about the new app and how there is such a variety of movies and tv shows to pick from for a movie night or just having a relaxing movie day indoors. 

Disney+ costs only $6.99 per month or $70 if you prepay for a year and includes hours of entertainment. There are rumors that the price will eventually go up a little, but it shouldn’t be too expensive. The app has movies ranging from older movies that you may like, remakes of older movies, Star Wars content, an has new excluses tv shows, movies, documentaries, and shorts that recently came out and are not on any other streaming app. Reviews call the app an early hit and people who have the app love it and one of the things they love is that the app brought us baby yoda and other disney movies you might not be able to find anywhere else.

When Disney+ first came out there were a lot of problems and there were a lot of complaints from subscribers. Lots of people reported their accounts being hacked and they had lots of glitches. But, Disney addressed the problems and got them fixed as soon as they could. A big downside to the app is that you can only get the app on your TV if you have a smart tv which a lot of people thought was a problem. In a little more than a day, Disney plus registered more than 10 million people, the company said in a statement.

Even though Disney+ doesn’t have as many movies or tv shows to pick from as Netflix, Disney+ is the exclusive streaming home of a significant chunk of Disney’s massive archive of content. It is also the only place to see new material like the first ever live action Star Wars series, The Mandalorian, as well as upcoming content from Marvel Studios. The app also has some of the older movies that your grandparents might even remember watching as a kid. But if you don’t like Disney movies, Star Wars, or any Disney shows then the Disney+ app might not be for you. So, will you try the app?
