Scripted originals previously announced for Disney+ include The Mandalorian, the world's first scripted live-action Star Wars series; the exclusive new season of Star Wars: The Clone Wars; High School Musical: The Musical: The Series; the untitled Cassian Andor series starring Diego Luna and Alan Tudyk; the Marvel Studios' series Loki starring Tom Hiddleston; Monsters at Work, Diary of a Female President; and live-action films Lady and the Tramp, Noelle, Togo, Timmy Failure and Stargirl.

While it has been known for a while now that Marvel will be launching original content on the Disney+ streaming app there has been plenty of speculation as to what will be a part of their new lineup.

Disney, which recently completed its acquisition of 21st Century Fox, also announced that the entire 660-episode-plus library of Fox's "The Simpsons" will be coming to Disney+ when it is launched.

Details about Disney+ were shared by executives at an annual investor day, where chief executive Bob Iger said the streaming service would combine the strengths of Disney and the assets acquired from Fox. 2019 Disney Universe films such as "The Lion King", "Avengers: End Game", and "Star Wars: Episode IX" will be streaming exclusively on Disney+ after their theater run.

There's plenty to be excited about ahead of the streaming service's November launch and Disney promises that it will rapidly expand globally following its USA debut.

"Disney+ marks a bold step forward in an exciting new era for our company-one in which consumers will have a direct connection to the incredible array of creative content that is The Walt Disney Company's hallmark".

The entertainment colossus was arranging to get Disney+ on a broad array of smartphones, tablets, gaming consoles, set-top boxes and smart televisions, according to executives. While the fate of these characters is still unknown after them both being dusted by Thanos' snap it seems there are still adventures to come.

Like the original comic, the animated series will be an anthology.
