Joining the slate are the Disney-themed cooking show Be Our Chef, fronted by The Office's Angela Kinsey; a Kristen Bell-produced musical theater/reunion effort Encore! and the kid-focused series Marvel's Hero Project.

Content created exclusively for the service will also be available. The company confirmed that it will include almost every animated feature from Disney alongside a number of the company's other properties, including films from the Marvel, Pixar, and Star Wars canon. It will also have all the shows and movies from Disney's Marvel, Star Wars, and Pixar properties, along with original shows for each franchise.

Disney+ will become available to subscribers in the United States on Tuesday, Nov. 12.

Disney kicked off its presentation to Wall Street analysts at its Burbank, California, headquarters on Thursday with a video that demonstrated the breadth of its portfolio, showing clips from dozens of classic TV shows and movies from Frozen and The Lion King to Avatar and The Sound of Music.

It added that Washington's "unwise and illegal measure is a major threat to regional and worldwide stability and peace". Iran retaliated by declaring U.S. forces in the Middle East as a terrorist organisation, Iran state news reported.

In addition to its robust library of theatrical and television content, in its first year Disney+ will release more than 25 original series and 10 original films, documentaries, and specials by some of the industry's most prolific and creative storytellers.

The digital push is Disney's response to cord-cutting, the dropping of cable service that has hit its ESPN sports network and other channels, and the rise of Netflix Inc.

The presentation included big news for Marvel fans, who can expect to see Elizabeth Olsen and Paul Bettany reprising their roles as Wanda Maximoff and The Vision in the Disney+ series, WandaVision.

A Star Wars-centric live-action series, titled "The Mandalorian" and directed by Jon Favreau, was also revealed for a launch-day release. The show will be based on Luna's character, Cassian Andor.

The news came during entertainment giant's two-hour-plus event to unveil Disney Plus and explain its wider streaming strategy. Lucasfilm President Kathleen Kennedy teased it as "a thrilling spy series set in the Star Wars universe", and she also promised that there are "several more live-action series in development". There's also some National Geographic content coming down the pipeline, including a series called The World According to Jeff Goldblum.
