An early look at the Disney+ app shows all the Star Wars content on the way, and it’s more than just the movies.
As Disney+ gets closer to launch, much of the talk on the streaming service has been around the new shows. For Star Wars, it includes The Mandalorian, the first live-action series in the franchise’s history.
As much excitement there is for The Mandalorian, Disney+ is more than just new original content. Disney has a vast library of movies and shows that will appear on the service, including hundreds of Disney titles including Marvel, Star Wars, National Geographic and so much more.

The library is pretty wide-ranging too. We got a view of what’s coming on Disney+ as a beta version launched early in the Netherlands for users to try for free until November 12.
One user uploaded a video of what the app currently looks like and goes through all the categories. Check out the video of the walkthrough of Disney+. The Star Wars content starts around the 6:11 mark.
The video shows all of the movies will be available in the Dutch version. It will even have Solo. However, Solo will not be available at launch in the U.S.
When it comes to series, the animated shows will be available with The Clone Wars, Rebels, Star Wars Resistance. In addition, there are number of shorts and specials.
When Disney CEO Bob Iger said Disney was cracking open the vault for this one, he wasn’t kidding.
Maybe I missed it, but I didn’t see the Holiday Special and I think a lot of fans would have enjoyed checking that out. It has garnered some recent attention because of Jon Favreau bringing Boba Fett’s tuning fork weapon from that into The Mandalorian.
Perhaps if there is a large enough request for it, Disney will dust off those boxes it still hasn’t opened yet from Lucasfilm.
When it comes to the look of the app, it seems easy to navigate. Disney has the different franchises in categories so if you’re interested in just Marvel or Star Wars, you don’t have to be burdened by the other content that is on there.
You can skip to areas you want. As someone who has already bought Disney+ (took advantage of D23’s special pricing if you bought it early), I’m excited for the app because it will give countless hours of entertainment for my whole family.
Disney+ launches in the U.S., Canada and Netherlands on November 12.
