Star Wars, Pixar, Marvel: these are some of the titles that Disney is saying will stack as they set to launch their own streaming service, Disney+, November 12.

The starting price to get this content is set for $7 a month or $70 a year. That’s less than Netflix’s most popular plan, which costs $13 monthly. However, it’s also a price Disney’s CFO Christine McCarthy said might go up as their programming grows.

The mind behind the Marvel Cinematic Universe, Kevin Feige, says the platform will be essential to the interconnected superhero universe during the announcement of the studio’s Phase 4, where a number of original series will play a key narrative role in the timeline.

The streaming service will mostly rely on Disney’s monstrous back catalog, according to LifeHacker, which says that a few new original shows will be added as they go.

According to CNET, Disney wants to combine its other streaming services, Hulu and ESPN Plus, to run on the same platform. It would allow users to use the same payment information and passwords for each service. CNET says that Disney plans for the three to remain separate subscriptions, but is likely to bundle them at a discount.
