Disney tweets the library of Disney+ titles

Curious just how much the new Disney+ streaming service will have? There’s a pretty big Twitter thread you’ll want to check out.

You don’t have to wonder just how big the Disney+ library is going to be ahead of its launch, because Disney is showing the world.

It’s not just Disney cartoons for kids and classic films for kids at heart, with Pixar, Marvel, National Geographic, Star Wars, and Fox all part of Disney’s library. Unsurprisingly, the inclusion of Fox expands the library considerably, but Disney and Marvel each offer quite a large surplus of content.

It all comes together to over 700 titles that Disney+ will launch with, and Disney has taken to Twitter to talk about them, creating a very, very, very long tweet thread about what those titles are.

The list is just the start, but it includes some titles you might expect, such as beloved favourites from Disney, Pixar, and Star Wars, as well as some classic TV shows you might not be thinking about.

If you grew up during the 90s, you may remember some of Disney’s other TV shows that have since disappeared from the airwaves. Not just the airwaves, but streaming as a whole, because you have to look pretty hard to find some of the titles Disney once had.

Gummi Bears isn’t necessarily easy to find, and neither is Hercules, but both of those will be on Disney+, among others.

That’ll push to Marvel series as well, with both X-Men, Spider-Man, and Spider-Woman included, while Star Wars’ TV series will be included, as well as one of the world’s longest running animated TV series.

There are some titles missing from the lineup. While we’ve seen what appears to be the entirety of the Disney animated theatrical line-up, if you were looking for the controversial “Song of the South”, it appears to still be missing in action, even though Disney keeps the song “Zip-a-Dee-Doo-Dah” on its lists of streaming services.

However there are some titles you may not expect or have heard of:

One thing Disney hasn’t confirmed is whether Australian subscribers will see the entirety of this library. Given it has the rights to it all, we can’t imagine Disney would have any problems with regards to local distribution, but we’ll know closer to launch.

Launch isn’t all that far, either, with Disney+ set to arrive in Australia from November 19, providing Australian access to the service for $8.99 per month of $89.99 per year.
