Star Wars, High School Musical, Monsters Inc. TV Shows In Development
Connect with us

TV shows based on Star Wars, High School Musical, Monsters, Inc. and a Marvel property are in development for Disney’s planned streaming service.

Bob Iger, the chairman and chief executive officer of The Walt Disney Company, made the announcement on Thursday in a quarterly earnings call.

The CEO also revealed that the streaming service will cost “substantially below” Netflix, which costs $7.99, $10.99 and $13.99 a month for standard, high, and ultra high definition streaming respectively. However, the price for Disney’s service will be adjusted as more content is added.

With the TV shows, Disney plans to put four to five original movies a year on the service. The Mouse House also said they are open to bringing third-parties in on the fun. This comes on the heels of Monday’s news about Disney’s unsuccessful talks about buying most of 21st Century Fox. Maybe Disney can get Avatar on loan.

The only detail revealed about the new TV shows is that the Star Wars one will be live-action, which is a first for the franchise after numerous animated ones. One of them, Star Wars Rebels, is airing its fourth and final season now on Disney XD.

The Monsters, Inc. show will also be the first Pixar TV series. The animation company has only dabbled in a few Toy Story holiday specials for ABC and shorts based on Cars characters that were mostly for Disney Channel.

The Disney streaming service was initially announced in an earnings report in August and given a 2019 release window. Disney currently has a streaming deal with Netflix that will end in 2018. When that happens, all of Disney’s content will be wiped from the service except for the Marvel-Netflix TV shows like Daredevil and Jessica Jones. Now, it’s going to cost a few more bucks to easily stream your favorite songs from Moana on repeat.

Need For Speed Heat Australian release date Is November 8

The Need For Speed Heat Australian release date is November 8 2019. The game will be published by Electronic Arts and comes developed by Ghost Games. The game will be available on Xbox One, PS4 and PC.

EA says “The game deepens and expands everything Need for Speed  fans love – expressive customisation, authentic urban car culture, and an immersive narrative that pulls you into the game.”

What is Need For Speed Heat about?

Need for Speed Heat sends fans to Palm City, a brand-new open world where street racers have gathered to make their names known. By day, players compete in the Speedhunters Showdown, a sanctioned competition where they earn Bank to customise and upgrade their garage of high-performance cars. At night, players risk it all to build their Rep in underground races where a rogue police task force roams the streets, ready to take racers down and swipe all their earnings. The roads, the risks, and the rides never end in this street racer where a player can roll deep with their crew, build their garage full of hot cars, and make the city their nonstop playground.

Riley Cooper, Creative Director at Ghost Games said “Our fans have been clear that they want more cars, more customisation, and more challenges, and we’re tuning up on every aspect. From your character’s style to your car’s performance and your driving style, we’re fuelling everyone’s creativity with this new game.”
