Fans can finally prepare for the highly-anticipated Disney Plus streaming service, which debuts later this year.

The streaming service launches on November 12 in the United States with prices set at $6.99 a month or $69.99 a year.

Plus, Disney+ will be home to more than 5,000 episodes of Disney Channel series (including shows like Lizzie McGuire, Kim Possible, and That's So Raven) and 100 Disney Channel Original Movies.

Available from the get go will be Disney's "vault" classics and signature collection, including "Dumbo", "The Little Mermaid", "Snow White", "Frozen", and more.

The Disney+ service will be available on a wide range of mobile and connected TV devices, including gaming consoles, streaming media players, and smart TVs, and will adjust to the best possible high definition viewing experience based on a subscriber's available bandwidth, with support for up to 4K HDR video playback.

Created to super-serve the most ardent fans, Disney+ will provide subscribers with a feature-rich product experience that makes it easy to navigate, discover, and watch their favorite programming with immersive brand tiles and dedicated pages for Disney, Pixar, Marvel, Star Wars, and National Geographic.

Currently, the PlayStation 4 is the only system Disney has actually confirmed will be receiving the service.

Star Wars was always going to be one of the main Disney+ draws, so for those of you who had been hoping that you'd be able to watch all the movies set in a galaxy far, far away on the service, your wish has been granted. Though it will be leaving as all Disney content is removed from that streaming giant.

Disney+ launches on November 12 in the United States. Will you be signing up for a subscription on the first day it premieres? "WandaVision", starring Elizabeth Olsen and Paul Bettany, "Falcon and the Winter Soldier", starring Anthony Mackie and Sebastian Stan, and a series around the "Thor" character Loki is planned, starring Tom Hiddleston.

Elsewhere in the Star Wars universe, Disney+ is launching a series in 2021 about Diego Luna's Rogue One character, Cassian Andor, with Alan Tudyk reprising his role as the voice of the droid K2-SO. There's also some National Geographic content coming down the pipeline, including a series called The World According to Jeff Goldblum.

In a January regulatory filing, Disney reported losses of more than US$1 billion for streaming-related investments in Hulu and technology company BAMtech.

There are also all 30 seasons of The Simpsons alongside several other family-friendly titles from Fox such as The Sound of Music, The Princess Bride and Malcolm in the Middle.
