Do you ever wonder why there is a noticeable lack of shows and movies from Disney, Marvel Studios, Star Wars, Pixar, etc. on Netflix?
Being amongst the most popular and influential movie studios of all time, it’s so weird that we can’t re-watch our favourite Disney classics or Avengers film on Netflix.
Well, in case you didn’t know, it’s because Disney has their own streaming service.
Yes, it’s not surprising if you didn’t know about it, since it’s hasn’t been available in Singapore. Until now.
Disney has officially announced that its streaming service is finally coming to our little red dot on 23 February 2021.
And they’ve just revealed more about their offerings.
There would be over 500 films and 15,000 episodes of content from Disney and its subsidiaries, which include Marvel Studios, Pixar, LucasFilm, 20th Century Studios (previously known as 20th Century Fox), and more.
Yes, that includes movies like Avengers: Endgame, Mulan, Star Wars, Toy Story, and more.
They also have several properties obtained from partnerships or integrations, such as:
Everyone’s favourite fourth-wall-breaking M-18 hero, Deadpool (and its sequel Deadpool 2), the good old classic Die Hard movie franchise and one of the best sitcoms of all-time, How I Met Your Mother.
Other series and films include National Geographic, Lost, Desperate Housewives, Prison Break, The X-Files, and many more.
Every streaming service has their own original films and TV series to push their service (my colleague is still paying Amazon Prime TV monthly for Star Trek: Picard that ended its run months ago), and Disney+ is no exception.
In fact, Disney’s are the ones I’m the most excited for.
Their current Star Wars original TV series, The Mandalorian, has been an extremely successful hit.
Yep, Baby Yoda is a huge part of the reason why.
And of course, not to mention their upcoming original series that will be part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe like WandaVision, Loki and The Falcon and the Winter Soldier.
Yep, I’m definitely so hyped and ready.
Their membership will be available at S$11.98 monthly or S$119.98 annually. So yes, the annual membership is way more worth it if you know you’re going to like it in the long run.
I am so ready to binge-watch shows after Chinese New Year.
