Disney+ launches in November; Alan Tudyk joins Cassian show

The Disney+ publicity push started in earnest today, with the monthly price ($6.99) and launch date (November 12 for the U.S./Canada) finally announced.

For Star Wars fans, there is at least one big surprise: All the films will be coming to the service within the first year, which is contrary to what was said previously. (Deals were made? Deals were made!) As for the original content, Alan Tudyk (K-2SO) is indeed joining the Cassian Andor live-action series, while Stephen Schiff (The Americans) was confirmed as the showrunner. It goes into production this year and will premiere in 2021.

There wasn’t much about The Mandalorian – they’re presumably saving all that for the panel here at Celebration on Sunday – but it will be up on the service at launch.

Though we did get a look at a prop here – there’s a speeder bike from the show on display in front of the StarWars.com stage:

As for the price, you can also buy an annual plan for $69.99, which comes out to $5.83 per month. For more details, head to Variety.
