Many TV watchers spend more time using streaming services such as Netflix or Hulu, rather than watching live TV. A while back, Disney announced that they were going to be launching their own streaming service. Since then, more and more news regarding the service has arisen.

On Nov. 8, Disney announced that the service will be known as Disney Plus. Some of the TV series coming to the service will be set in the worlds of movies such as High School Musical and Monsters Inc. According to a Lucasfilm’s announcement made on Oct. 4, Jon Favreau will be serving as an executive producer in an upcoming Star Wars live-action TV series known as “The Mandalorian.”
