Disney+ has a new launch date and it arrives a week earlier than originally scheduled. Here, if it means a week less waiting, we'll happily take it.

Disney+ is a new streaming service that offers fans content from Disney, Pixar, Marvel, Star Wars, and National Geographic.

That includes exclusive original programmes such as 'The Mandalorian', as well as feature-length films, series, documentaries, and short-form content made exclusively for the service.

The streaming service will launch in Ireland, the UK, France, Germany, Italy, Spain, Austria, and Switzerland on March 24th. Belgium, the Nordics, and Portugal, among others, will get the service in summer 2020.

Pricing for Disney+ in Ireland has also been confirmed. It will cost €6.99 per month, or €69.99 for an annual subscription.

Aside from the highly acclaimed 'Star Wars' TV series 'The Mandalorian', other content available from launch includes 'High School Musical: The Musical: The Series'; 'The World According To Jeff Goldblum'; and a CGI reboot (a la 'The Lion King') of 'Lady and the Tramp', starring Tessa Thompson and Justin Theroux.

The service is available on nearly all major mobile and connected TV devices at launch, including gaming consoles, streaming media players, and smart TVs.

The content is commercial-free, can have four concurrent streams, and unlimited downloads on up to ten devices.
