Disney + is about to become the exclusive broadcast service to watch The Simpsons. The 30 seasons of the series will be available at the launch on November 12, the company confirmed today.
The announcement was made during its Disney + conference for investors, which addressed the future of the company's entertainment plans following the acquisition of 21st Century Fox. The Simpsons are currently available for transmission in Hulu, and Disney now has majority control of Hulu, in which the company plans to continue investing heavily, according to Kevin Mayer, Disney's direct consumer product manager. It is not clear if Disney will withdraw Simpsons World, a digital service dedicated to The Simpsons available to FX customers.
The Simpsons is just one of the many commercial shows that Disney made during its presentation tonight. Two new live action series by Marvel are also being developed, based on the popular Cinematic Universe characters. WandaVision will follow Scarlet Witch and Vision, while Falcon and Winter Solider will focus on the turbulent friendship between the two heroes. Elizabeth Olsen, Paul Bettany, Anthony Mackie and Sebastian Stan are ready to repeat their respective roles.
Other series – including High School Musical: The Musical: The Series Monsters at Work (based on Monsters, Inc. ) – were also announced. A series of Star Wars based on the character of Diego Luna Rogue One: A Star Wars Story Cassian Andor, is also in development. In addition to all this, there will be more than 5,000 episodes of Disney Channel TV and more than 100 movies available in the service at the launch.
Disney + will cost $ 6.99 per month or $ 69.99 per year when it is released later this year on November 12.
