The new Disney streaming service will launch on devices from Apple, Google, Microsoft, Roku, and Sony.

Disney+ will officially launch on Tuesday, November 12 at 9 a.m. ET/6 a.m. PT.

I have said publicly that I think we made and released too many Star Wars films over a short period of time.

What changed isn't clear.

And though attendance at Disneyland and Walt Disney World overall haven't exploded the way Disney may have been hoping, Bob Iger also confirmed that since its opening, over 5 Million guests have experienced Millennium Falcon: Smuggler's Run between Disneyland and Walt Disney World, which is definitely an impressive number for this new bi-coastal attraction. But it was also announced that Marvel's Kevin Feige will be making a Star Wars movie, but these won't be released in cinemas for a few years.

The news was relayed via the official Disney UK Twitter account while responding to followers asking about the fate of DisneyLife.

And because Fire TV is, well, fire TV, you'll be able to use your voice to control Disney+.

Iger continued talking about it on an earnings call, saying that, for the moment, Star Wars content will mostly be concentrated on Disney+ shows like The Mandalorian, which premieres November 12. While it didn't break down the exact devices that would be supported, Amazon did say to expect it on "Fire TV streaming devices, Fire TV Edition smart TVs, and compatible Fire Tablets".

Elsewhere, Disney has come to an agreement with Amazon over disputes over Fire TV carrying Disney+. You can pre-order the service today.
