I can’t change the fact that I support Disney or the feelings I possess towards the company. I grew up watching Disney Channel and Disney movies, therefore, Disney will always belong to a special part of my heart. Yet, I must admit that Disney is clearly monopolizing the film industry and it is seen in their upcoming app Disney+.

As a frequent user of Twitter, I’ve noticed Disney+ as a widespread topic among many demographics. Disney+ has been in the works for a while and will be available on November 12th, but the app will bring more than entertainment.

The name “Disney” is associated with kid movies and is directed towards kids in general, but there are a few mentionable titles that may be the pushing point to subscribe to the upcoming app. 

Star Wars and Marvel are owned by Disney, and there is talk about new original series for Obi-Wan Kenobi and shows for more Marvel characters. There will be revivals for shows like “Lizzie McQuire”, starring Hilary Duff. There are many more shows, old and new, coming to the app, but Disney is doing a good job reaching a vast audience. Star Wars and Marvel have huge fan bases and they might just be willing to pay to see more content from those universes. 

The app will feature a spin-off of “High School Musical” called “High School Musical: The Musical: The Series”. But nothing can beat out the original. “Lady and the Tramp” will be viewed through the streaming device. Disney owns Fox, so there will be other shows not meant only for kids. 

My expectations for the universes I love are high, but the shows created for the younger audiences don’t even cross my mind. The current Disney series on television can’t beat “Wizards of Waverly Place” or “The Suite Life of Zack and Cody”.

I am looking forward to some of these titles, even the ones that don’t look as good. Disney brings out the child in everyone. Disney is supposed to be fun as a source of entertainment, a way to escape reality, even if it is just for an hour and a half. 

Disney+’s biggest rival will be Netflix. The app will only cost $7 a month, which is two dollars lower than Netflix’s prices. There will be different options for payment, just as Netflix has the option for how many users can be on the streaming device. $7 a month is not bad to pay, especially compared to some other streaming services. 

Yeah, the Disney+ app is bringing a lot to the table, and the price is reasonable. Disney is killing the game. Disney is monopolizing the industry, but at least they are putting in the work. 

The Walt Disney Company owns and operates a big list of assets, such as the ABC channel, Marvel, Lucasfilm, Pixar, The History Channel and more. Then there’s the discussion involving Sony and Disney about Spider-Man, but we won’t get into that today.

The Disney+ app has already sold me, for I need to watch anything related to Star Wars. I’m giving in to the monopoly. It’s not necessary for Disney to have their own app, but from a business standpoint, it is a smart way to make more money.

A lot of people grew up with Disney, so I hope Disney will give people justice to their favorite universes or characters. The experience Disney will provide through the streaming device will give a more magical pastime that will be hard to resist.
