It’s no news that Disney plans on starting its own subscription-based streaming service, but word has been light on exactly what content that service will provide to its subscribers. However, we now have a peek at the slate of what we can expect in fall of 2019, courtesy of Deadline.

Two movies are already in the post-production stage.

Magic Camp, previously on Disney’s release calendar for fall 2017, tells the story of a burgeoning magician attending magic camp. The main magician character will inspire his down-on-his-luck counselor, played by Adam Devine. Gillian Jacobs and Jeffrey Tambor co-star while Mark Waters directs.

The previously announced Noelle staring Anna Kendrick will also debut on the streaming platform. When jolly old Saint Nick retires, his daughter (Kendrick) steps up to take his place. Co-stars include Bill Hader and Shirley MacLane, and Mark Lawrence serves as director.

Other films with less known information include:

  • Don Quixote, written by Billy Ray (Hunger Games films)
  • Lady and the Tramp (live-action?)
  • The Paper Magician
  • Stargirl, directed by Julia Hart (The Keeping Room, Miss Stevens) and presumably adapted from the successful young-adult novel by Jerry Spinelli
  • Togo, directed by Ericson Core (Point Break remake)
  • Three Men and a Baby remake
  • Sword in the Stone remake
  • Timmy Failure, directed by Tom McCarthy (Spotlight) and adapted from the children’s books by Stephan Pastis

Disney’s goal is to release four to five films a year through the service.

In terms of TV shows, Disney will be airing a lot of previously announced projects including a new live-action Marvel series, High School Musical series, and an animated Monsters, Inc. series. There are also plans for multiple live-action shows under the Star Wars brand.

We do know that Disney aims to keep the service family-friendly, so there won’t be any R-rated films available for streaming. Additionally, Marvel shows currently streaming on other exclusive platforms such as Jessica Jones (Netflix) or Runaways (Hulu) won’t be a part of the lineup, at least for the time being.

A price point for the new streaming service has yet to be revealed, but it will begin as a domestic service and later expand overseas.

    Four to five films a year when they are just starting out? I guess the mouse has been putting it’s money to good use. I thought when i first heard of disney having a streaming service they would not have enough content to get people interested, but they may now actually have a real chance at competing with netflix and amazon prime. Although i think only limiting their content to family audiences may limit the amount of potential subscribers they can get. I wonder if they ever wanted to release some more mature films or shows on the service they may rename and rebrand the service down the line.

    Also Noelle is going to have some serious competition come Christmas 2018 when Netflix’s Klaus gets released.

    A lot of these sounds like they are going to be Disney Channel quality and we don’t need more of that. Netflix Fuller House is bad enough. We don’t need a whole streaming service like that.

    • dlizsehshus

      Disney Channel has been excellent this past two years with Tangled, Ducktales, Rebels, Lion Guard, Guardians, Gravity Falls etc.

      So really no clue why you making it sound like they have been releasing garbage or something.

      • Manuel Orozco

        Actually Ducktales and Guardians were on Disney XD. But you are right about Tangled. Seeing Rapunzel transition from the big screen to small screen brought me back to Disney Channel after six years without proper goodbye to Suite Life (until last December that is) and Hannah Montana. I also liked Liv & Maddie

        • JamScoBal

          I mean live action wise! There animated tv shows has always been better than their live action shows. There only good live action shows were before That’s So Raven and that was a long time ago.

          • dlizsehshus

            Thats your opinion. I thought their sitcoms were always good. Just because they were aimed at kids and families it doesn’t mean they were bad. They were basically the same as family sitcoms like Full House, Family Matters, Boy Meets World, Sabrina, etc that Disney did in the 90s/

            And obviously they launched the careers of many talented people.

          • Manuel Orozco

            Raven’s Home was the first live action show that has really interested me since we had Suite Life and Hannah Montana.

          • Manuel Orozco

            I currently watch Raven’s Home.

        • dlizsehshus

          Disney XD is still part of Disney Channel. They are being run by the same people. The only difference is one channel caters to boys and the to girls.

          • Manuel Orozco

            Well the gender division was why I stopped watching Disney Channel for a while until Tangled debuted last year.

  • Manuel Orozco

    Me subscribing will depend on the cost as well as other content we can expect. The original movies however are not exciting to me yet. Also, Disney Television Animation’s Twitter page deleted a post saying that the Lady and the Tramp project will be fully animated not confirming a direct sequel to Scamp’s Adventure or original story.

    Sword in the Stone Remake? Lady and the Tramp? Some kind of Don Quixote adaption? A flipping High School Musical series!? A Monsters Inc series!? Geez, I swore I’d stop at Hulu and Netflix, but…

    • Manuel Orozco

      I’m excited for the return of HSM. The trilogy was my middle school years!

      • dlizsehshus

        I think a High School Musical is a good idea. It would be Glee minus Ryan Murphy which is a plus.

        • Manuel Orozco

          I actually never watched Glee but you are right. Because I have been wanting this franchise to continue for a while.

    So Disney is not releasibg Rated R material or TV MA material for this streaming. Im guessing Hulu will be the place where they release the more mature content then.

    • Manuel Orozco

      You are correct

    But I am intrigued how the new programs will look, idk if I’ll get the service tho….got college to deal with first….

  • MissE

    Unless Gwendoline Christie shows up as Phasma for one of the Star Wars shows, I have zero interest in this.
