Disney+ launch lineup: every movie and TV show available to stream in the US on day one

Disney’s foray into an online streaming subscription service, Disney+, is now live. We’ve updated this post with the company’s full launch lineup — including some of the missing Marvel movies and animated series, along with the first three Home Alone movies.

The company initially used a massive Twitter thread — more than 300 tweets in total — to make the announcement. The thread included obvious titles like Star Wars: The Force Awakens and Frozen, alongside older titles like Three Men and a Baby, Three Musketeers, Swiss Family Robinson, and Fantasia. Disney also used the thread to name some popular TV series that will be available on day one, including Lizzie McGuire, Recess, and the animated X-Men series from 2002.

Most of the announcements focus on Disney’s back catalog. There are a few originals on the list, including the Star Wars live-action spinoff series The Mandalorian, High School Musical: The Musical: The Series, and The Lady and the Tramp live-action remake. That’s in keeping with Disney’s strategy of selling its streaming service on the concept of nostalgia and whole-family viewing options.

The titles coming to the US are more or less in line with what European subscribers will see, with a few notable exceptions. Part of that has to do with rights distributions — it’s why Spider-Man: Homecoming isn’t available on the service yet. Disney is working to get back rights to the titles it’s leased to other streamers (just as other major distributors, like NBCUniversal and WarnerMedia, are slowly buying back the rights to their top shows for their own streaming services), but given the value of Marvel and Disney titles, the process may take some time.

“I think as you can see from what we’re making available … at launch, there’s been a lot of effort that went into bringing it all back together,” Michael Paull, head of streaming services at Disney, told The Verge in August.

Disney+’s launch lineup is still an impressive windfall for Disney stans. We’ve broken the launch titles up into seven distinct sections: Disney films, Disney animation, Disney Channel Originals, Pixar, Star Wars, Marvel, National Geographic, and everything else.

Disney+ launches on November 12th for $6.99 a month.

Update November 11th, 7:30PM ET: Added additional titles, particularly Marvel and Home Alone items.

Disney dominated the box office in 2018 even before its big holiday blockbuster, Mary Poppins Returns, hit US theaters on Wednesday (Dec. 19). The mammoth movie studio said on Dec. 9 that its movies had grossed more than $7 billion worldwide year-to-date, or roughly 19% of the global box office at that time, based on ComScore estimates.

Next year could be even bigger. Disney has a US release slate for 2019 that would, for any other company, be about three years of worth of tentpole movies—films with little risk that are designed to prop up a studio’s financial performance. They include new titles like Captain Marvel; sequels to thriving Disney franchises like Avengers, Toy Story, Frozen, and Star Wars; and live-action remakes of classic Disney fare including Dumbo, Aladdin, and The Lion King. Here’s the current release schedule, per ComScore:

  • Captain Marvel – March 8
  • Dumbo – March 29
  • Penguins (Disneynature) – April 17
  • Avengers: Endgame – April 26
  • Aladdin – May 24
  • Toy Story 4 – June 21
  • The Lion King – July 19
  • Artemis Fowl – August 9
  • Frozen 2 – November 22
  • Star Wars: Episode IX – December 20

That doesn’t include Fox films slated for 2019, like Dark Phoenix and New Mutants, which will move under the Disney umbrella when the media conglomerate completes its acquisition of many of Fox’s assets next year.

“All of these moving parts are coming together to create, in 2019, what I think for them will be their biggest year,” Paul Dergarabedian, senior media analyst at ComScore, told Quartz. “In the wake of two years of incredible box-office performances, they’re just turning it up to 11.”

Disney’s biggest year at the box office so far was 2016, when films including Star Wars: The Force Awakens, Finding Dory, and Captain America: Civil War grossed a record-setting $7.6 billion worldwide. Analysts like Dergarabedian predict 2019 will be even bigger, thanks to Disney’s all-star movie lineup.

Disney, unlike some of its rivals, bets each year on a small batch of mega-movies from its key studios—Marvel, Pixar, Lucasfilm, Walt Disney Pictures, and Disney Animation. In 2017, the studio released eight movies in the US. It put out nine films as of Dec. 16 of this year. By contrast, the other six major US studios averaged about 20 releases apiece at that time in 2018, based on Box Office Mojo data.

Not all of Disney’s 2018 movies were box-office blowouts. Releasing fewer, bigger movies risks having a few, bigger flops. A Wrinkle in Time may have lost money, and The Nutcracker and the Four Realms didn’t deliver big returns. But, the ones that hit, like Black Panther, Avengers: Infinity War, and Incredibles 2, really hit. Disney released four of the 10 highest-grossing movies globally through mid-December 2018, based on data from The Numbers. The performances of those films allowed the studio to absorb the losses of the others.

“Disney is the one studio that can still miss and be okay,” Jeff Bock, senior analyst at entertainment research firm Exhibitor Relations, told Quartz.

In North America, the world’s largest movie market, Disney captured 27% of the box office this year, as of Dec. 16, up from 20% during the same period last year, ComScore data shows. The next largest studio, Universal, captured 17% during the same period of 2018.

Disney has been strategic in not only acquiring movie studios like Pixar, Marvel, and Lucasfilm, but in building franchises that feed and grow on one another. Marvel Studios’ decade-long plan for its cinematic universe, which culminates in Avengers: Endgame next spring, is a perfect example. Disney’s Lucasfilm is also planning for another 10 years of Star Wars.

At the same time, Disney as a company is going through a huge transition. It will be integrating Fox’s assets, which Disney is acquiring for $71 billion in a deal that will close early next year. And Disney, which owns some of the largest cable-TV networks, is shifting away from traditional TV toward streaming video.

Shares of Disney are virtually flat over the last three years, because of uncertainty surrounding the company’s future in TV.

Disney’s media-networks business—led by cable channels such as ESPN—used to account for more than half of the company’s annual operating income. Last fiscal year, that share was 42%. The studio division, which fluctuates based on movie releases, helped make up the difference with nearly $3 billion, or about 19% of the company’s total operating income, up from 13% in 2015, when the media arm first started to crack.

Disney, which has dominated the box office market share since 2016, wants to keep raising that bar.

Taking a closer look at its release schedule, the company is poised to own some of the biggest moviegoing weekends of the year, starting with Avengers: Endgame in April. That will be the unofficial kickoff of summer movie season in the US. (The US “summer” box office technically begins the first weekend of May.)

Disney’s remake of The Lion King and the sequel to Frozen essentially have their respective July and November release weekends to themselves. These dates can change; studios move release dates to give their films the best odds at the box office. But, as of now, no other studio seems willing to directly challenge those surefire hits. The Lion King, based on the beloved 1990s animated film, boasts megastars Donald Glover and Beyoncé Knowles in lead roles. And Frozen became a breakout hit and cultural phenomenon for Disney in 2013.

Other Disney movies such as the Avengers finale and Toy Story 4 are up against films with audiences that are very different than Disney’s. They include horror movies, indie flicks, and adult dramas, which pose little threat at the box office. Movie studios tend to counter program against the biggest movies of the year in this way.

“Studios have been scheduling around other studios’ huge blockbusters for years,” said Dergarabedian. “But nowhere is that more apparent than when you look at the calendar and see that when Avengers: Endgame is opening, pretty much everyone wants to stay out of the way.”

Universal’s Cats, based on the Andrew Lloyd Webber musical, is slated for released on the same day as Star Wars: Episode IX—another near-guaranteed blockbuster. There’s little overlap between those opening-weekend crowds. And, even if there is, few Star Wars fans are going to pass on the last of Skywalker saga films.

Meanwhile, Disney’s live-action, Guy Ritchie-directed remake of Aladdin seems to have the most direct competition, with Fox’s sci-fi thriller Ad Astra and Warner Bros.’s Minecraft adaptation hitting US theaters the same weekend in May. Ad Astra could find another date if the conflict threatens either film, given that Disney will own Fox by then. Fox Searchlight recently moved the release of the adult drama The Aftermath, after Disney moved the fourth Avengers film to the same date. As for Minecraft, movies based on video games are rarely good.

That makes the biggest threat to Disney, well, Disney. When you have nine giant movies hitting US theaters in the span of 10 months, audiences have to pick and choose between them. “The quandary for Disney must be,” said Dergarabedian, “how do we strategically place these movies within the calendar, because they don’t want to run over each other.”

Breakout Disney hits like Black Panther, for instance, have had surprisingly long runs in cinemas. The blockbuster, released in the US in February 2018, ran for 25 weeks in US theaters— into August.

Disney has left at least three weeks between each movie release for 2019. But Dumbo, which is sandwiched between Captain Marvel and Avengers: Endgame, and the lesser-known Artemis Fowl, based on the young-adult novels, could repeat the lackluster box-office performances of Christopher Robin and A Wrinkle In Time in 2018. Those movies grossed $197.5 million (against a $75 million production budget) and $133 million worldwide (against a $150 million production and marketing budget), respectively.

Disney seems to have learned from past mistakes with Star Wars, at least. The company is waiting at least 18 months after the last movie to release Episode IX, following a tepid performance by Solo: A Star Wars Story in May 2018. The film had weaker reviews than other Star Wars films and came just six months after The Last Jedi. Episode IX will be a barometer for how much runway the Star Wars franchise still has on the big screen—after 40 years, 10 movies, and series like The Mandalorian that Disney is developing for its online platform. Disney has at least one more Star Wars saga series in the works after Episode IX, too.

“It’s a very high class problem to have, if you’re wondering how your big, giant movie that won’t slow down is going to affect you’re next giant movie,” said Dergarabedian. “It shows that not only are you competing with others studios, sometimes when you’re this big or you have have products that are this strong, you’re competing with yourself.”

Starting next year, Disney will have Fox’s movie studios to think about, as well. Fox’s Marvel movies like Deadpool and the X-Men films don’t quite mesh with Disney’s squeaky clean image. And Disney hasn’t had a studio like Fox Searchlight that is focused on edgier, adult fare since Miramax, which it sold in 2010. Will Disney milk as much from those businesses as it has Marvel, Lucasfilm, and Pixar? Elsewhere in Disney, Pixar’s long-time shepherd—co-founder and president Ed Catmull—is retiring in 2019, and creative lead John Lasseter is exiting this year. Eventually, Disney will have to find a replacement for CEO Bob Iger, too. Iger has already stayed beyond his planned retirement, and is supposed to depart the company in 2021.

Disney will dominate the movies in 2019. The question then becomes: how long can Disney keep it up?

The Third Age of TV

First came broadcast, then cable, now streaming.

In 2019, Disney went from a very large and powerful company to a virtually inescapable cultural monolith. It dominated the box office, reached record revenues, bought a rival film studio, and launched a major streaming service to compete directly with Netflix over the future of entertainment. The year was everything Disney had been building toward for a decade.

Ten years ago, the company bought Marvel Entertainment with the goal of putting many of the world’s most beloved superheroes together on movie screens around the world. Just a few years later, Disney purchased Lucasfilm to unite Star Wars fans new and old in a galaxy far, far away. This year’s releases of Avengers: Endgame and Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker, perhaps the two highest-grossing movies of 2019 when all is said and done, marked the culminations of those two acquisitions, respectively. (The Rise of Skywalker‘s only real competition for second-place after Endgame is The Lion King, another Disney movie).

Disney topped all that off by officially acquiring Fox’s film and TV assets this year in order to bolster the offerings of its streaming service, Disney+. Between Marvel, Lucasfilm, Fox, Pixar, and all of Disney’s other franchises, the company owns enough intellectual property to supply another century’s worth of entertainment.

But, first, it must prove it can succeed in the post-Avengers, post-Star Wars trilogy, streaming-first era. 2019 may have been its biggest year ever, but 2020 will be its biggest test.

Three charts that explain Disney’s huge 2019

In 2019, Disney movies represented nearly a third of the total US box office gross. And that doesn’t include movies distributed by 20th Century Fox, which Disney now owns. Disney’s share of the total box office has grown steadily in the last decade as it churned out more Marvel and Lucasfilm movies.

And it’s managed to do that while making fewer movies in total. In 2009, Disney released 23 feature films that sold tickets that year. In 2019, only 12 movies accounted for Disney’s market share. The company has doubled down on its tentpole strategy, in which it invests large quantities of resources in an increasingly smaller amount of movies—though each one is a potential blockbuster.

Disney’s reach is widening as well. It sold a record number of tickets in 2019, before The Rise of Skywalker was even released:

Even adjusted for inflation, Disney easily made more money at the box office in 2019 than in any other year. Avengers: Endgame, which earned $2.8 billion worldwide, alone made almost as much as every Warner Bros. movie combined.

Disney didn’t just have success at the movies. Its total revenue across all business segments, which includes theme parks and media networks (TV channels), hit a record high in 2019 at nearly $70 billion. On that, it made $10.4 billion in profit—slightly less than the record $12.6 billion in profit it made in 2018. Disney partially blamed the consolidation of Fox’s assets for the slight downturn in profit from a year ago.

So everything’s great, right? Nothing to worry about?

Two charts that will explain Disney’s 2020

First, Disney will have to enter 2020 without Avengers or Star Wars to rely on:

Since Disney started making Star Wars movies in 2015, the company has made at least one Star Wars- or Avengers-branded movie a year. Of course, as The Lion King and Black Panther proved, Disney can still find massive success at the box office with movies that are not technically part of either franchise (even if Black Panther exists in the same cinematic universe as Avengers).

Second, its traditional TV business is in trouble. ESPN, Disney’s lucrative sports network, has lost 13% of its subscribers in the last five years:

As more and more Americans cut the cord every year, it’s unlikely that Disney will be able to reverse this trend. To that end, in 2018, Disney launched ESPN+, a sports subscription streaming platform for $5 a year. As of November, it had about 3.5 million subscribers. Disney is now offering it in a bundle alongside Hulu and Disney+ at a rate reduced from what it would cost to sign up for all three services together.

Disney’s TV business, which also includes the ABC network, isn’t in danger of bottoming out any time soon. In fact, it represents the largest portion of the company’s overall revenue—more than double what its tentpole movies bring in with arguably half the cultural buzz. But Disney needs to staunch the bleeding and prove to investors it has a sound streaming strategy for when its traditional TV business can no longer be counted on as a consistent source of revenue. After nearly a decade of revenue increases, the growth of Disney’s media networks segment has slowed down.

No more Avengers or Star Wars (for now)

Disney must move forward with its two biggest franchises in 2020. It will still have a Black Widow movie (and plenty of other Marvel characters will get their own movies in subsequent years), but if you’re looking for Iron Man or Captain America, you’re not going to find them on the big screen. The same can be said for Luke Skywalker, Rey, Kylo Ren, and the gang. Those stories are over.

It won’t be long before Star Wars resurfaces at the multiplex—Disney is already developing a new trilogy with The Last Jedi director Rian Johnson. And on the Marvel side, Disney will now turn its attention to The Eternals, the upcoming 2020 film based on the Marvel comics of the same name. The Eternals are not as well known as the Avengers were prior to their film adaptations, so Disney has some brand-building ahead of them. The franchise, which Disney hopes will be the spiritual and financial successor to the Avengers, is not guaranteed success. And neither is Johnson’s new Star Wars trilogy, which does not yet have a release date.

2020 will be a crucial year for Pixar

With no Avengers or Star Wars next year, perhaps Pixar can pick up the slack. The animation studio will make two new original films in 2020: Onward and Soul.

As other animation houses catch up to Pixar’s ingenuity, the Disney brand will have to get bolder in order to maintain its edge on the field. Many of Pixar’s most recent films have underwhelmed at the box office as the company moved away from the boldness and originality that separated it when it first started making films and toward sequels of films that should never have gotten them in the first place (hello, Cars 2.)

Pete Docter, the director of Inside Out, is now the chief creative officer of Pixar, after his predecessor, John Lasseter, left the company amid a sexual misconduct scandal. Docter has already issued a new mandate: No more sequels. Onward and Soul are the first two attempts at restoring Pixar’s global status, and recommitting to its founding vision.

Disney+ still has a lot to prove

Technologically speaking, the November launch of Disney’s streaming service could have gone smoother. And despite a treasure trove of content, The Mandalorian, a Star Wars-based TV series, is the only Disney+ offering anyone is really talking about. The nascent streaming service still has a long way to go to prove to investors and fans that it was a sound longterm investment.

Credit Suisse estimates Disney+ will have 20 million global subscribers by the end of 2019 (it has only launched in a few countries outside the US so far, including Canada, the Netherlands, and Australia). That’s well ahead of Disney’s own projections (it forecasted about that many subscribers by the end of next year), but some of those are undoubtedly free trials. Verizon also offered its new customers a free year of the Disney service, which could be inflating its early subscriber totals. Netflix has 160 million global subscribers, and has not yet been substantially affected by the presence of Disney+.

It’s too early to assess the success of Disney’s streaming gambit. By the end of 2020, however, we’ll know a lot more about whether or not it was a smart move for Disney to wager much of its future on streaming entertainment. 2020 will be Disney+’s first full year of existence, and next fall, it’ll debut a new Marvel TV series, The Falcon and the Winter Soldier, to go alongside The Mandalorian. It will launch in several more countries, including the United Kingdom, France, Germany, and Spain.

Beyond bringing in subscribers, can Disney+ compete at the Emmys, as Netflix routinely does? Can it bring in renowned creators from outside the existing Disney ecosystem, as Netflix has done with filmmakers like Martin Scorsese? Disney has never performed especially well at the Oscars, and that has yet to deter them. But finding a way to cozy up to the Hollywood elite could not only help sell the product to more subscribers, but it could also serve as a thorn in Netflix’s side as it looks to distance itself from its streaming competitors in the awards landscape.

Can Disney still create new franchises?

Outside of the occasional Pixar movie, all of Disney’s biggest movies are based on intellectual property that’s already immensely popular. But at some point—and it may already be happening—audiences will tire of the same stories, told in the same ways, and will clamor for more new stuff. Maybe that won’t happen in 2020. But Disney would be smart to get ahead of the curve and anticipate when its tried-and-true franchises inevitably hit a wall. It hasn’t had to start franchises from scratch in a long time. Sooner or later, it will.

In 2020, we’ll see how strong the Disney brand is when Luke Skywalker or Iron Man are not involved. Here’s Disney’s 2020 movie slate (not including those from 20th Century Fox):

If 2019 was the year Disney took over the world, 2020 will be the year that signals whether it’ll stay there, or fall back to the pack. Over slightly more than a decade, the company leveraged its globally beloved brand to buy Pixar, Marvel, Lucasfilm, and Fox, positioning itself as the most dominant cultural force in the world. But with that success have come expectations that will become harder and harder to meet.

If Disney+ fails to catch on in a meaningful way, if the company struggles to generate more water-cooler shows beyond The Mandalorian, or if The Eternals and its other upcoming tentpole blockbusters underperform at the box office, it could set up Disney for a decade much bumpier than the last. It doesn’t help that every media rival on the planet is trying to figure out each day how to cut into Disney’s foothold.

CEO Bob Iger, who will step down from the role he’s held for more than 15 years in 2021, has staked his legacy on streaming. So far, investors are pleased—the stock is up almost 35% from last year on the strength of the company’s box office and the perception that Disney+ is an early success. But if either of those things falter in 2020, stockholders might not be so thrilled. No successor has been named, but consumer chief Kevin Mayer and Facebook COO Sheryl Sandberg, a former Disney board member, have been floated as replacements. Whomever that person is, he or she will have to lead Disney through a new decade marked with uncertainty.

It’s hard to rank the Disney animated films, and not just because there are so many of them. These are films that mean so much to so many people, that are inherently linked to powerful memories of childhood and have informed what we so many adults consider magical. Ranking their respective strengths and weaknesses becomes as much an investigation of why you loved something as it is to their relative worth as a creative endeavor. (Divorcing yourself of those emotions is mightily challenging.) Still, I tried to do just that, and wanted to share stories from the making of the movies as well, so you know just what went into that film’s success (or lack thereof). So, yes, this is a history lesson as much as it’s a critical appraisal. (My primary sources were Disney War by James B. Stewart, Creativity Inc. by Ed Catmull and Amy Wallace, and Walt Disney by Neal Gabler, plus the fantastic documentary films Waking Sleeping Beauty and Walt and El Grupo. I heartily recommend them all.)

But please, let us know in the comments what you think of this list, what Disney films you continue to revisit, and which of these 58 you hadn’t ever even heard of until this list.

And if you feel inspired to check some of these out on Disney+, here’s a list of everything currently available to stream on that streaming service.

The most popular classic Disney movie in every state

  • CableTV.com looked at the most popular Disney classics in every state, starting with 1937’s “Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs” through to the end of the Disney Renaissance in 1999.
  • “The Lion King” was the most popular Disney animated classic across 17 states.
  • Utah had a 14-way tie.

Disney has a huge library of beloved animated classics. It’s so big and beloved, in fact, that many of the titles have been or are currently being adapted into live-action reboots, such as “Beauty and the Beast,” “Christopher Robin,” “Dumbo,” “Aladdin,” “The Lion King,” and more. We don’t know if we could pick a favorite, but a recent report by CableTV.com used Google Trends data to determine what the most popular animated Disney classic is in each state across the US.

Perhaps most surprising is the fact that, despite the massive success of the 2017 live-action remake of “Beauty and the Beast,” the 1991 movie was only favored in the state of Utah — and even then it was part of a 14-way tie (!). Less surprising: “The Lion King” is the hands-down favorite across the country, with 17 states showing the 1994 classic lots of love.

CableTV.com looked at factors such as title familiarity, popularity, and cultural relevance to come up with a list of the 25 most popular Disney classic films. The selection of films started with the earliest Disney animated feature film, 1937’s “Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs,” and continued through the end of what’s known as the Disney Renaissance, the time period between approximately 1989 and 1999, when Disney’s renewed push into more animated musical films likely ruled your childhood.
