SCOOP: Disney+ Will Allow Up to 7 Profiles, With Hundreds of Avatars to Choose From
While we knew that their would be profiles for different accounts, today we’ve learned that Disney+ will allow up to 7 Profiles with access to hundreds of avatars. This will allow different users to have their own recommendations and watch list for their account.
Disney+ will be released on November 12 for $6.99 a month or $12.99 if bundled with Hulu & ESPN+. Starting with the 2019 theatrical slate, all Disney/Pixar/Marvel/Star Wars films will become exclusive to Disney+ meaning movies like the live-action versions of Aladdin, The Lion King, Captain Marvel, and Avengers: Endgame will only be available to stream on Disney+.
The company also announced an original slate including a 10-episode Star Wars series from Jon Favreau which will be available at launch in November. The first year will include 25 new original series, 10+ movies, 7,500 past episodes, 100 recent movies, and 400 library titles including the entire Disney Vault. Previously, many of those new releases and library films would have gone to Netflix as part of a distribution deal that started in 2016.
