Disney Plus is the future of entertainment

The Disney Plus app opens to show the welcoming screen.

Imagine Star Wars, Marvel, National Geographic, Disney and Pixar all in one place. With the launch of Disney Plus, Disney has finally accomplished this. Nov. 12, Disney launched the app, but glitches and service outages soon clouded the excitement. However, it did not stop people from downloading it; over 10 million people downloaded the app in a little over a day. Disney Plus contains TV shows and movies, both new and old, such as “High School Musical: The Musical: The Series”,Lizzie McGuire” and the “Star Wars” series. All these classics and new shows make it appealing to download, but it is $6.99 a month. Disney has said that the app is the future of their company, but does it live up to all the hype?

Yes, Disney Plus is worth the money because it brings back all of the shows from our childhood while still incorporating new shows and movies. For me, it’s like Netflix, but with things people actually want to watch. Platforms like Netflix and YouTube have been at the top of the entertainment business for a long time, but lately, they have been dying out, especially Netflix. All the shows on it are old, and everything they are adding doesn’t make up for it. They have also been taking off iconic shows like “Law and Order”, and they are possibly taking off the two most iconic shows ever: “Friends” and “The Office”. They added “Victorious”, but one show can’t make up for everything they have done wrong. At this point, it seems like they are trying to lose customers. But not to fear, Disney Plus is here to make entertainment entertaining again. It takes you down memory lane with the old shows and classic movies, and produces new shows like the “Mandalorian” to keep you on your toes. Freshman Maddie Yoder has Disney Plus and appreciates the new streaming service.

“When I was younger I couldn’t watch much Disney, but now I have a chance to catch up on everything I missed. I also like the variety it offers; it literally has everything. It brings back the memories of the few Disney movies I did watch, like “Wall-E” and “Finding Nemo”, which makes me cry,” Yoder said.

While Disney Plus does cost about seven dollars, you will actually save money if you switch from Netflix, making it a better offer. Netflix’s starting cost is $8.99, with their premium offer at $15.99. Because Disney Plus offers a place where people of all ages can find fun entertainment for a lower price, Disney Plus definently lives up to its expectations.
