Disney+ makes its long-awaited debut later this year, bringing with it a slew of new original programming that includes a handful of shows set in the MCU.

The streaming service is expected to take on rivals Netflix, HBO Go and Showtime Anytime. In addition, Disney+ will allow downloading, so all content from the service can be accessed offline, for as long as you're a subscriber.

Captain Marvel will be available on day one of the subscription streaming service's launch, and so will Disney's entire Signature Collection.

Earlier this week, the company announced it will premiere a "Monsters, Inc." spin-off TV series to on the streaming service in 2020. Additionally, users will be able to download Disney+ content directly to their devices.


All Pixar films will be available within the first year of launch and all Pixar theatrical shorts will be available from Day 1.

Elsewhere in the Star Wars universe, Disney+ is launching a series in 2021 about Diego Luna's Rogue One character, Cassian Andor, with Alan Tudyk reprising his role as the voice of the droid K2-SO. Anthony Mackie and Sebastian Stan are also teaming up in the streamer's The Falcon and The Winter Soldier, with Tom Hiddleston starring in a new series titled Loki.

Joining the slate are the Disney-themed cooking show Be Our Chef, fronted by The Office's Angela Kinsey; a Kristen Bell-produced musical theater/reunion effort Encore! and the kid-focused series Marvel's Hero Project. To celebrate the upcoming Frozen 2, a first-of-its-kind documentary series called Into the Unknown: Making Frozen 2 will feature behind-the-scenes looks at the film. There's also some National Geographic content coming down the pipeline, including a series called The World According to Jeff Goldblum.
