The brand new streaming platform Disney Plus will be launching later this year. With plenty of information being announced at the D23 fan convention, Express.co.uk has all the information that you need about how to sign up and the cost of the service. Read on for our complete guide to Disney+, including the exciting shows you’ll be able to watch when it launches.
How can you sign up to Disney Plus?
Viewers will be able to sign up to the streaming platform via its website as soon as it launches.
Once viewers have a subscription to the service, they will be able to access it via an app on Apple, Android, Google Chromecast and Roku TVs.
Disney has confirmed that the platform will launch on November 12 across the USA, Canada and the Netherlands.
Then the platform will be released on November 19 in Australia and New Zealand.
Disney Plus does not yet have a UK release date although according to Digital Spy, the platform is planned to be available in “nearly all major regions of the world within the next two years.”
The platform will give viewers access to 25 original television series and 10 original films, documentaries and specials in its first year.
Disney Plus will also include a library of 7,500 other television series and 500 films.
When the service launches, one of the first shows that will be available is Star Wars spin-off The Mandalorian, which stars Pedro Pascal as a mysterious bounty hunter.
Other series expected in the next few years include a number of Marvel spin-offs like The Falcon and The Winter Soldier, Loki and Wandavision.
Some of the newer announcements include a Lizzie McGuire reboot, which will see Hilary Duff return, and a She-Hulk series.
More information will be released at the D23 expo, which is currently taking place in Anaheim, California this weekend (August 23-25).

How much will Disney Plus cost?
Disney announced access to the streaming platform will cost $6.99 a month for viewers in the US.
Fans can also sign up to the service annually for $69.99 in total.
This means when it comes to the UK, it is expected to cost around £5.69 a month and around £57 a year.
However, it is more likely that the series will be rounded up to around £5.99 a month.
This cost will include access to four simultaneous streams at once as well as 4K streaming for fans to enjoy.
If these costs remain stable, it seems they will be competing with Netflix, which currently costs £5.99 for just the standard plan.
More information on costs are likely to be confirmed when the UK release date is officially announced.
Express.co.uk will update this article when the official costs of the service are revealed.
Disney Plus launches in the US on November 12 with the UK release still TBC.
