Disney + Streaming Service Thread
« on: April 11, 2019, 02:21:01 PM »
Details were announced on Disney + today

The service will cost $6.99 a month or subscribers can pay $69.99 annually.

The Mandalorian Star Wars series has been confirmed for launch, though unlike Netflix, they will be releasing episodes weekly.

Marvel has confirmed rhw Vision & Scarlet Witch series that has been rumored.

There are several fresh Disney, Star Wars and Marvel series that are getting announced with big names attached so this probably warrants a thread, even this far ahead of launch.

Def getting this if only for The Mandalorian.

I am fairly certain I also read they'll have every episode of The Simpsons available at launch, too.

Yup, sounds like every Simpsons ever is moving here - Diego Luna is getting a Star Wars show about his character from Rogue One.  I really felt cheated buying the annual version of the DC service and haven't tried it in months but I really think I will have no problem dropping the annual price on this out the gates with all the effort and unique projects, not to mention all the library of stuff - especially the confirmation of housing The Simpsons, though I still have them calling EVERY EVER since they've pulled the Michael Jackson episode from everything.

Actually, another Marvel project I read for this which I think seems really cool and has a ton of potential is they will be doing an animated WHAT IF series - which is cool for all kinds of unique one-off stories and even lends them to get different people to do voice work on the series.

I don't give a shit about any of the original stuff, but that's a hell of an archive to have for that price (which probably won't last past a year or two).

Confirmation that as expected Song of the South will be one of the few movies from the Disney catalog still made unavailable and not on this service.

The other piece that I know has been discussed but I don’t know if it had ever been done to this point is that the scenes with the crows will be cut from the Dumbo.

https://www.theverge.com/2019/8/6/20757626/disney-plus-espn-hulu-bundle-price-date-streaming-service

Disney+, ESPN+ and the version of Hulu with ads for $13/month.  That's not a bad deal because it's basically three services for the price of one month of Netflix (and both Hulu and Disney+ are/have potential to be worth the price alone; I'm not familiar with ESPN+ aside from that Katie Nolan had a show on it).

I would gladly pay the difference if they offered a bundle with Ad-free Hulu, but I doubt that will be an option unfortunately.

Tom Hiddleston has done a few interviews recently and given little nuggets about the Loki series.  He mentioned that the series is going to be six one-hour episodes.

Also when searching for this thread I found a thread with two posts about this service from a few months before this one, if mods feel the need to merge.

Forget about all that Marvel and Star Wars stuff.

Forget about the new Muppets series that is a mystery style show set in 1984 (which I lost hope on due to heavy Josh Gad involvement).

Disney announced Hilary Duff is back in a new Lizzie McGuire series.

I think I'm going to subscribe because if you think about it each Disney Blu Ray costs about $25, so if I watch a movie a month, it's a good deal.

I heard The Simpsons episodes are widescreen with no option to change it. Is this true? Because that's the only thing I'd watch regularly. I'm a rare person my age that doesn't care about Disney or Marvel or Star Wars or whatever the fuck. I'd watch $7 worth of Simpsons on demand in any given month though.

They're stretched to hell and back. Sometimes it's way glaring, but I'm very happy they're all there period. The X-Men animated series better not be this rough though.

But dude, Blank Check and Camp Nowhere and Heavyweights and A Kid In King Arthur's Court. Lost youth.

Audio for Simpsons 1x01 was way off. Extremely distracting. I checked a few 2, 3, and 4 episodes and everything seems in order for those seasons.

I started watching DuckTales (1987) with my kids, as I finally had the opportunity to do so. But something didn’t seem right. I remembered the first episode introducing everyone and setting up the series. They have them out of order. The first episode is listed as episode 37 on Disney+. You can look up the episode titles on Wikipedia and watch them that way, but that should be fixed. The new DuckTales series was apparently listed out of order too and one of the writers gave the correct order. There was such a discussion on Twitter that season 1 was corrected apparently.

Also, Disney+ has the original DuckTales episodes as skipping from episode 1 to episode 4 in their order. I have not gone through every episode title to figure out which two episodes are not available, but I am curious as to why they are not available.
Oh Dandy...you came and you gave without taking!

Diving into this thread for the first time. @Cartman, are you still looking for a way to get the bundle with the ad-free version of Hulu? Here’s a way to get it for $18.99/month:

If I can throw some negatives about the service so far:

- On the home screen, there's no option to "Watch Again" or see what you recently watched. You have to search for the Movie/TV show all over again.
- Although it does resume where you left off, there's no indication of resuming a movie or TV show you were watching; only a "Play" option.
- There's a lot of content on there that won't be streaming until 2020 or 2021, which is fine, I get that there were pre-existing deals in place, but it's kind of a cock tease to see The Mighty Ducks trilogy and Maleficent on there only to see that it won't be streaming for another 6 months to a year.
- Where the fuck is Angels in the Outfield?

All relatively minor things that will most likely be corrected but just wanted to put them out there.

I am neck deep in Bonkers and like the original Ducktales the episodes are all kinds of out of order. I haven't looked into it, but it wouldn't surprise me if all those early 90s animated series (Quack Pack, Goof Troop, etc) are similarly mucked up. The Imagineering documentary is great so far, even if it does gloss over some of the things that might make the company look bad.

Also, apparently in the "Help" section you can suggest stuff they need to add to the service.

Simpsons are out of order as well, and unless I slept through it the Michael Jackson one is gone (which I 1000% get, but is still bullshit).

I wish I'd waited a couple months for them to fix all the weird shit, but man, Kid In King Arthur's Court.

James L Brooks insisted that the Michael Jackson episode be pulled permanently after Leaving Neverland and Al Jean said he believed that MJ used the episode for grooming purposes. So you can't blame Disney for that one.

I watched Gus because it had Don Knotts. It's not terrible, but it's fairly mediocre. Still maybe worth a watch for Dick Butkis in an acting role as well as Dick Enberg and Johnny Unitas in cameos, Bob Crane's last film role, Tim Conway doing physical comedy, etc.

I've started my MCU watch through.  These movies have been talked to death but it has to be reiterated how bad Iron Man 2 is.  It reminded me way too much of Spider Man 3 in the scattershot plot, unlikable main character (but at least you could understand why Stark is acting that way) and multiple uninteresting villains.  I checked out about an hour in.
