Disney's very own streaming service finally has a name, and unlike the speculation thus far, it is not "Disney Play." No, the name of the service will actually be "Disney+", the company confirmed today in an official press release.

Disney CEO Bob Iger revealed the name during a webcast meant to discuss the corporation's financial results from the last fiscal year, as well as the fourth quarter. He also said that Disney+ will launch in late 2019, which gives other streamers like Netflix and Hulu enough time to get their affairs in order.

In addition to all of the Disney movies and TV shows you know and love, Disney+ will be full of original content like Cassian Andor spinoff Star Wars series with Diego Luna and a show based around the MCU's Loki starring Tom Hiddelston.

Movies are also in the works, including Don Quixote, Lady and the Tramp, The Paper Magician, Stargirl, Togo, Magic Camp, 3 Men and a Baby, Sword and the Stone, and Timmy Failure.

Deborah Chow (Marvel’s Jessica Jones), Rick Famuyiwa (Dope), Dave Filoni (Star Wars: The Clone WarsStar Wars Rebels), Bryce Dallas Howard (Solemates) and Taika Waititi (Thor: Ragnarok) are some of the directors currently working on Disney+ projects.
