Announced at a Disney Investor Day Presentation on April 11, Disney unveiled some great new content coming to Disney+ and even included some great Pixar news. (Updated to note that the service is slated to launch on November 12, 2019, at $6.99 per month.)

First, a short film titled Lamp Life, Starring Bo Peep will air, and a series of 10 shorts titled Forky Asks a Question will also be included. Along with the great news of the original shorts, Disney also clarified that the entire Pixar catalog of full-length movies (within one year of launching) and short films (on day one of the service) would be available for streaming on the Disney+ service (and available to download for offline viewing).

(It should be noted that Forky Asks A Question was noted to be available on launch day, while Lamp Life‘s release date wasn’t specified.)

During the presentation, Bob Iger shared a screenshot on his Twitter page (above photo) of the Disney+ service running on a Smart TV — it looks really nice how the films are slotted out into each of the respective Disney brands.

Launching at $6.99 per month or $69.99 per year (with no advertisements) on November 12, 2019 (with a full worldwide release over two years), and will have fully-customizable individual profiles for each family member (Bob Iger noted November 12 during the Q&A portion of the investor call). Although the main page is set up to be a splash page at this point, you can sign up for additional updates on the official Disney+ site.


In non-Pixar related news, it was also said that the complete Walt Disney Signature Series of films would be available on day one of the service. Additionally, a making-of documentary series about Frozen 2 will also be available and a live-action version of Lady and The Tramp will also be available at launch. Complete details can be found on the Walt Disney Company’s site.

Forky, from Disney and Pixar’s Toy Story 4, is a craft project created from trash, so he has important questions about how the world works, such as: What is love? What is time? And of course, the deepest question of all, What is cheese? He explores all of these questions and more in a series of 10 shorts.

Bo Peep makes a big comeback in Disney and Pixar’s Toy Story 4 and she leads the way in the all-new animated short film, finally answering the questions about where Bo was since we last we saw her in Toy Story 2.
