Disney announced Thursday that its video streaming service would launch in the U.S. in November, spotlighting its blockbuster-making studios as it takes on powerhouse Netflix. In the first year alone, 25 original series and 10 original films will debut on the service. "These will be both new and continuing stories, and one of the things we're most excited about is that these will be major storylines set in the MCU with ramifications that will be felt both through the other Disney+ series we're producing and are features on the big screen".
