Disney+ is on the horizon and Disney wants to hype people up for it. High School Musical: The Musical: The Series is planned to launch alongside the streaming service on November 12th. However, Disney will offer fans a taste of the show on three of their owned-television networks on November 8th. The pilot episode will air on ABC, Freeform, and Disney Channel. The entire season will contain ten episodes and follow the obscenely talented high school students as they go from the auditions to their actual performance. Unlike Glee, the high school cast is of an appropriate age to portray their respective roles.
Disney+ has far more than a new High School Musical series. The Mandalorian, a Star Wars space-Western series created and directed by Jon Favreau and produced by Clone Wars creator Dave Filoni will also launch day-and-date with the service. The fourth phase of the Marvel Cinematic Universe will also be heavily invested in Disney+, having several exclusive original series that progress the story following the events of Avengers: Endgame. Speaking of, Endgame will also be available for streaming on Disney+ in addition to an ocean of legacy content from Disney’s film and television studios. The entire Simpsons series will also be available at launch, so you can enjoy the first few seasons considered good.
Disney+ is slated to release on November 12th at a comfortable price of $6.99/month, or $69.99/year.
