Disney Announces Streaming Service to be Named Disney+

After months of keeping fans waiting and even a false alarm, today Disney announced the official name for their upcoming streaming service: Disney+.

  • During a conference call discussing The Walt Disney Company’s fourth quarter 2018 earnings, Chairman and CEO Bob Iger announced that the highly anticipated direct-to-consumer service would go by the name Disney+.
  • While we’ve already known about several projects in the works for Disney+ such as the Star Wars series The Mandalorian, a High School Musical series, a live-action Lady and the Tramp, and much more, during an interview with CNBC, Iger also revealed that a docu-series about Imagineering would also debut on the platform.
  • That project joins another docu-series about the Walt Disney Studios’ Ink & Paint Department that’s already in the works.
  • Disney+ is expected to debut in late 2019.
