First Look at Disney+ Coming in April


Disney will reportedly debut a first look at its Disney+ streaming service in April — and fans are already wondering if that means they will get an early look at The Mandalorian, Jon Favreau’s Star Wars TV show.

According to Variety’s New York Digital Editor Todd Spangler, the first look at Disney+ will come at an investors day on April 11.

That date coincides with the start of Lucasfilm’s annual Star Wars Celebration event, where fans had already hoped they might get a first look at new content. The fact that the two events overlap makes it seem like a done deal that some of the content that will be shown off at the Disney event will be Mandalorian footage that they can also provide to Star Wars fans.

In addition to The Mandalorian, Disney+ will feature original content including a live-action Lady and the Tramp film and several TV series set within the Marvel Cinematic Universe and featuring actors from the popular movies.

It is unlikely that any of the Marvel content will be previewed, since it is not yet in production.

CEO Bob Iger called the launch of the streaming service “the biggest priority of the company during calendar [year] 2019.”
