'I have so many memories of the great work we did together and the relationships I made throughout the journey.

Disney keeps coming up with more and more reasons for you to fork over cash for its upcoming streaming service, which is now known as Disney+.

All in all, Disney has primed itself to offer some stiff competition to the dominant streaming service in Netflix. Let us know in the comments down below!

This could be a reaction to Solo: A Star Wars Story's lackluster performance at the box office, but it's more than likely a play to ensure that Disney+ can attract as many subscribers as possible. No, the name of the service will actually be "Disney+" the company confirmed today in an official press release. The film's original star Diego Luna will topline it as Cassian Andor.

This would be a boon for some people, who have had to resort to other methods in order to watch shows like The Handmaid's Tale andMarvel's Runaways. Disney describes Cassian's new series as a "rousing spy thriller". A new version of High School Musical is also on its way.

Disney+ will mine the Pixar character pantheon to create a new animated series based on the Monster's Inc franchise. Given that film's high mortality rate, a sequel would have been a hard proposition. Another untitled docu-series is also in the works. Which, considering the way Netflix hides personalized watch lists these days, may be a bigger competitive feature than now thought.

Iger likes to make announcements about the service during earnings calls to investors, and more specific details like pricing and a launch date remain a mystery. Are you excited to see Diego Luna return as Cassian? Disney+ will debut in the United States sometime in late 2019.
