Two words: The. Mandalorian. If you’re an obsessive Star Wars fan (like me), you already know what this is. If you don’t, you will soon. It’s an incredible-looking all-new original Star Wars spinoff, only available on the new Disney+ streaming service.

Disney+ launches TODAY (November 12) and it’s insane. Pretty much any Disney/Marvel/Pixar/National Geographic movie or show you can think of, all in one app. The classic kids’ stuff is all there, and I’ll get to that in a minute, but for me, it’s all about Star Wars and Marvel.



From Luke and Leia to Rey and Finn, and everything in between. And did I mention The Mandalorian?? A new spinoff about a Boba-Fett-type bounty hunter, set five years after Return of the Jedi? I can’t even. Plus, over 10 years of record-breaking, ground-breaking Marvel movies? All the Avengers, the Guardians of the Galaxy, Black Panther — and all-new series like Falcon and Winter Soldier, and WandaVision! Seriously, sometimes I barely have time to shower, but I am gonna MAKE time for this.

Disney+ is available right now for $6.99/month or $69.99 /month, and for less than a pumpkin spice latte a month (yes, I’m basic like that), I’m in.

So, I’m clearly shook about all the Star Wars/Marvel stuff, but there’s also a ton more to Disney+. Moana, Frozen, Cinderella, Snow White, Mickey, Minnie, Toy Story, Cars, Nemo, Monsters Inc., The Lion King, The Incredibles, Coco — the list is endless. There are over 7,500 episodes, over 500 movies, and over 35 new originals. There’s a super-cute new Christmas movie with Anna Kendrick, and an all-new High School Musical series. There are literally thousands of options for every person in the family.

Every episode and movie is downloadable across 10 devices, and you can stream different content on 4 different devices simultaneously. Honestly, I’m not sure I’ll need any other entertainment app. This is an absolute game-changer.

Just in case, there’s other stuff you still want to watch, there’s also a bundle of Disney+, Hulu (with ads), and ESPN+ for $12.99/month. Always fun to mix in some Handmaid’s Tale if the Disney princesses are feeling a little too cheery ;).

So go check it out. There are hundreds, if not thousands, of options for every member of the family. But especially Star Wars and Marvel. Oh, and did I mention The Mandalorian?
