Disney+ will be officially launching this year where at the moment not much is known about the service and what will be offered. However during the company’s investor meeting held in St. Louis, Disney’s CEO Bob Iger revealed some details about the streaming service and what we might be able to expect from it.

According to Iger, one of the things we can expect to see from the service is Disney’s entire motion picture library. “And at some point fairly soon after launch it will house the entire Disney motion picture library, so the movies that you speak of that traditionally have been kept in a “vault” and brought out basically every few years will be on the service. And then, of course, we’re producing a number of original movies and original television shows as well that will be Disney-branded.”

This means that if you enjoy some of Disney’s more classic films, you should be able to find them as part of the Disney+ streaming service. Previously how Disney approached its classics was that they would release individual titles on home video for limited periods of time, after which it is then put back into the Disney Vault until a later point in time.

However based on what Iger has said, it sounds like a subscription to Disney+ means that you will be able to watch all these movies and more anytime you want. There is no word on when exactly Disney+ will be launched or how much it will cost, but since it is pegged for 2019, we should find out soon enough. Disney+ is also expected to host some non-Disney content at launch while the company starts filling its catalogue with their own original shows and movies.
