New information emerged about the upcoming streaming service from Disney! The service will launch sometime next year. The official name for the streaming service is still unknown at this time. Dinsey won’t be pulling their products from Netflix and Hulu right away. They do plan to charge less than Netflix since they won’t have much content. Original content will soon emerge on the streaming service as well as their classic animated films.

A Special Look at Captain Marvel

Let’s continue with the Disney news. I did warn you this will be Disney heavy!

Captain Marvel will be the biggest movie yet! It’s a female-led film and will introduce us to the most powerful hero in the MCU! EW exclusively released photos from the upcoming movie! Head on over to their website to see the photos!

    Why are they remaking everything?! Ugh as much as I LOVEEE HSM I want regular original content. Brie Larson looks incredible as Captain Marvel!! I’ve never read the comics but I LOVEEE the movies.

    • I agree with the remaking! It seems like all Disney is doing is remaking everything they’ve done in the past. It’s really good and all, but I agree with needing more original content as well. Personally, I think it’s okay to reboot and remake old stuff, but also have a good balance between the two as well.

  2. Oh what ?! New high school musical ?!
    Im in, but it’d feel so wierd now all the “main” ones has graduated .. I had cried so much at the 3rd movie !! mainly as I was graduating too, ahah!

  3. I am super excited for Captain Marvel!!! I don’t know how I feel about the Disney Streaming service tho. I am tired of having to have subscriptions to a million different things in order to watch anything I want. It gets expensive too. I don’t want to join ANOTHER one for Disney 🙁 Thoooo maybe Disney could just buy Netflix 😉 and then I can have both!

  4. I can’t believe they are making a High School Musical series?? I am in shock right now hahaha. I wonder why, and why now. I can’t believe High School Musical aired so long ago haha. I think I’ll still watch because I am very curious about it overall, haha. Thank you for sharing that news! 😀

    Always in the back of my head, I wonder about Halloween 39 at some point in my life(lol) I watched the 1st one years ago, and was thoroughly scared, but after that, it was just too much! I liked High School Musical, nd wonder if it will work out as well as a series. I feel the same about the Purge too. Captain Marvel? Yes! Happy Sunday and Hugs..RO

  6. Well, there’s a blast from the past. I remember when my daughter was obsessed with High School Musical. I am surprised it took them this long to make it into a series.
