But the Disney service has a narrower focus on family-friendly shows and movies.

As the streaming wars between major giants like Netflix and more continue to build up demand for new origial series and content, this fall another major competitor will enter the field this fall through Disney, and it appears that game consoles will be among the supported devices for the service's launch later this year.

And much like Netflix, users will be able to customize their own profiles with avatars, custom settings, and profiles. The content is laid out in curated bars like Recently Watched, Recommended for You, and Trending Now. From the Fox catalog, Disney will be offering about 7,500 TV episodes and 500 movies.

Star Wars fans will be excited to know that all of the Star Wars movie will roll out on Disney+ within the first year of launch. For a while, Netflix had a stranglehold on the market, but with how easy it is now a days to view series and films on smart televisions, computers, phones and tablets it was only a matter of time before the rest of the entertainment world caught up with their own services like Amazon Prime, Hulu, WWE Network and DC Universe. One being a planned holiday film, titled "Noelle", that follows actress Anna Kendrick as Santa's daughter, whose brother, Nick, goes missing. However, Star Wars boss Kathleen Kennedy confirmed during the presentation that Alan Tudyk will also reprise his role as reprogrammed Imperial security droid K-2SO.

Mary Poppins, the 2010 live-action Alice in Wonderland starring Johnny Depp and a live-action remake of Lady and the Tramp are among the films set to stream upon launch.

More than 5,000 episodes and 100 Disney Channel original movies will also come to the service. "Nonfiction series also announced earlier this week include "Be Our Chef", "Cinema Relics: "Iconic Art of the Movies (wt)", "Earthkeepers (wt)", "Encore!", the untitled Walt Disney Imagineering documentary series, "Marvel's 616", "Marvel's Hero Project", "(Re) Connect", "Rogue Trip", and "Shop Class (wt)". Stargirl, based on the best-selling book, will also be available. One example given, what if agent Peggy Carter became "Captain America" and Steve Rogers stayed a scrawny kid, but received a super-powered suit from Howard Stark? Those titles, along with the previously announced Loki series starring Tom Hiddleston, will be available within the first year of launch of the streaming service. Recent classics including Moana and Frozen will also be there - and Frozen II will also live on the series after its theatrical release and at home entertainment release in 2020. Each of the Marvel Studios produced live-action series will run between six and eight episodes.
