The new platform will be releasing content in an entirely different way to the bulk content drop Netflix has used for series such as Stranger Things in the past. The following series will have new episodes out each Friday once the service is live:
Marvel Hero Project
High School Musical: The Musical: The Series
The World According to Jeff Goldblum
Those eager to watch this content will be able to view the first episode when Disney+ launches on November 12 .
There will be some exceptions to the weekly upload rule. For example, Disney previously stated that Avengers: Endgame would make its debut on the platform on Wednesday, December 11. Similarly, an episode of The Mandalorian will be added on Wednesday, December 18 in order to avoid a clash with the release of Star Wars: Rise Of The Skywalker in theaters.
President of content and marketing at Disney+, Ricky Strauss, told The Hollywood Reporter: ‘We’re just getting started so it made sense to build our fan base with episodic content coming out once a week in a more traditional model, because we felt that if we put everything out at once it would be harder for us to build the audience, rather than having people tuning in.
‘To be honest, also some stuff won’t be ready to binge, it’s coming in as the months go by.’
