Major Disney+ Update

Disney+ has decided to release the vast majority of their catalogue on their new $6.99 streaming service, as stated in the 3 hours plus preview video above.

This catalogue includes over 500 movies and over 7500 television programs from Disney, Pixar, Marvel, Lucasfilms, 20th Century Fox, National Geographic and other companies Disney distributes, which will be made available progessively from November 12th, 2019.

I seriously doubt they will include the cheesy Star Wars Holiday Special and more contentious material without parental guidance warnings, but I’m guessing that they will probably fulfill my wish to access their classic cartoons online.

I am a fan of their classics cartoons, primarily Donald Duck, and have collected the four Walt Disney Treasures – Chronological Donald collections on DVD a decade back. But I had also wanted all of the classic cartoons featuring Goofy and remaining Chip ‘n’ Dale shorts. And apparently, these will eventually be made available via the new service.

I was also waiting for Blu-ray versions of The Cat From Outer Space and The Apple Dumpling Gang films, that I was expecting to be released via their movie club. But I guess I will try this new service out instead.

I will probably continue to buy my very favourite films on Blu-Ray for a while but I guess I’ll be watching the lack luster, passible releases on Disney+ instead.

I’m pretty sure their movie club will continue because the Disney+ service requires high-speed internet connections, which are still unavailable to some. And I’m guessing they will offer more exclusive memorabilia soon so I think i’ll remain a memeber for quite some time.

Good news overall.
