Disney will be entering the streaming service competition by launching Disney+ later this year. While we can expect to see all sorts of content under the studio’s umbrella, which consists of Disney, Lucasfilm, Marvel Studios, and Pixar, it wasn’t clear how much money was being put into it.

Now new reports say that the studio is spending somewhere north of $500 million on original television shows like The Mandalorian and films like Lady and the Tramp. More on this below.

Marvel's The Defenders

The wave of Marvel shows being canceled by Netflix was alarming but not surprising, especially since Disney is launching their own streaming service, Disney+, in 2019.

Most believed that Daredevil, Luke Cage, Iron Fist, and presumably The Punisher and Jessica Jones would just migrate over to their new home. Which makes sense. They would join the Scarlet Witch, Loki, Winter Soldier, and Falcon shows that are being launched. However, there is a clause that prevents these shows from appearing on Disney+ until 2020. More on the report, below.

The Mandalorian Star Wars

Rumors surrounding the casting of Disney+’s The Mandalorian, the studio’s first live-action Star Wars series, have been circulating for the past few weeks. Pedro Pascal was named as the titular lone gunfighter who “travels to the outer reaches of the galaxy far from the authority of the New Republic.” And now, there is confirmation.

Lucasfilm has confirmed that Pascal will be playing as that lone gunfighter. And he won’t be alone. He will be joined by the already confirmed Gina Carano (Deadpool) and Nick Nolte (Affliction). Additionally, Giancarlo Esposito (Breaking Bad), Emily Swallow (Supernatural), Carl Weathers (Predator), and Werner Herzog (Grizzly Man) will be joining the cast as well. More on the report, below.

If you are looking for Disney content on streaming services, you are most likely going to find it either on Hulu or Netflix. At least right now.

The upcoming service has been unnamed for almost two years since it was announced in 2017. But now, we can refer to it as Disney Play. And for those who are wondering about pricing, there is also some very good news. According to a new report, it will be cheaper than Netflix. More on the story here below.

Disney’s Star Wars TV slate will be expanding beyond the traditional TV broadcast format. In addition to the anime-style Star Wars: Resistance, which will air on The Disney Channel, there is also the live-action series which will air on Disney’s streaming service.

Additionally, there is a rumor that says the live-action show could be about the Outer Rim planet Mandalore – the home planet of characters like Jango Fett, Boba Fett, and Sabine.
