The Simpsons Are Coming To Disney+

I never thought I’d ever see the day something so crazy as Disney buying FOX. But, that day is here and now Disney and their upcoming streaming service get to add all of the FOX content they want. Top of that list? How about one of the network’s longest running series, The Simpsons.

Everything’s coming up #DisneyPlus! #TheSimpsons will be making Disney+ their exclusive home for streaming, starting at launch.
Per The Verge:
The announcement was made during its Disney+ conference for investors, which touched upon the future of the company’s entertainment plans following the acquisition of 21st Century Fox. The Simpsons is currently available to stream on Hulu, and Disney now has majority control of Hulu, which the company is planning to continue investing heavily into, according to Kevin Mayer, head of Disney’s direct-to-consumer product. It’s unclear if Disney will retire Simpsons World — a digital service dedicated to The Simpsons made available for FX customers.

The Simpsons is only one of the many show announcements Disney made during its presentation tonight. Two new Marvel live-action series, based on popular Cinematic Universe characters, are also in development. WandaVision will follow Scarlet Witch and Vision, while Falcon and Winter Solider will focus on the turbulent friendship between the two heroes. Elizabeth Olsen, Paul Bettany, Anthony Mackie, and Sebastian Stan are set to reprise their respective roles.

Other series — including High School Musical: The Musical: The SeriesMonsters at Work (based on Monsters, Inc.) — were also announced. A Star Wars series based on Diego Luna’s Rogue One: A Star Wars Story character, Cassian Andor, is also in development. In addition to all this, there will be more than 5,000 Disney Channel TV episodes and more than 100 movies available on the service at launch.

Disney+ will cost $6.99-per-month or $69.99 annually when it launches later this year on November 12th.
