We knew Disney was building its own on-demand streaming service, a la Netflix or HBO GO, but we didn’t know the name. Disney’s new streaming service will be called Disney . While there’s been a few rumored names (it was misreported, at one point, to be “Disney Play”), word of this name comes straight from the Mouse House: The Walt Disney Company’s new direct-to-consumer streaming service will be called Disney , launching in the U.S. in late 2019: https://t.co/fqv1HFHtqw pic.twitter.com/ut3ojyusB1 — Disney (@Disney) November 8, 2018 Disney will launch in “late” 2019 — which makes sense, as that’s right around the time Disney’s remaining contractual ties with Netflix come to an end. Disney also dropped news about two new series: An as-of-yet unnamed live action Star Wars series about Rogue One’s Cassian Andor, with Diego Luna returning for the role. This, of course, is in addition to The Mandalorian, the series Jon Favreau is making for the service.
