Disney Reveals Launch Slate For Its Streaming Service; Netflix & Hulu Will Keep Their Respective Marvel Series

New details about Disney's upcoming streaming service have been revealed, including the slate we can expect when the service launches in 2019. We also have an update on all of Marvel's current series...

Earlier this week, Deadline was able to learn quite a bit more about Disney's upcoming streaming service, which is due to go live at some point in the 2019 calendar year. 

First off, the service, which has yet to set a price point, will begin as a domestic service only before expanding to overseas markets after an undetermined amount of time. The original programming will remain consistent with the traditional Disney brand, meaning there will be no R-rated films or television series on the platform. Any R-rated content produced by Disney will be given to Hulu. 

As for all of the currently airing Marvel series, which includes Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Luke Cage, Iron Fist, The Defenders, and The Punisher on Netflix, Runaways on Hulu, and the upcoming Cloak and Dagger on Freeform, they will all remain at their respective locations and will continue to produce new seasons for the foreseeable future. Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. will remain at ABC, regardless of whether or not it gets cancelled after this current season.

Disney's current first-year goal is to produce at least four to five original films and five television series for the streaming service. The studio has reportedly set a firm $25M-$35 million production budget for a 10-episode first season of any potential series. However, if they are presented with something "exceptionally ambitious," (e.g. Marvel or Star Wars), then there would be a budget cap of approximately $100 million for any 10-episode season.

Don Quixote, Lady and the Tramp, The Paper Magician, Julia Hart's Stargirl, and Ericson Core's Togo are their priority film projects at the moment and will likely be ready to go when the service launches next year. Mark Waters' Magic Camp and Mark Lawrence's Noelle, which stars Anna Kendrick and Bill Hader, are also bound for the streaming service. 

Disney is in the midst of actively developing 3 Men and a Baby, Sword and the Stone, and Timmy Failure for the service, but those are presumably not as far along.

For television, the inaugural slate includes a new live-action Marvel title, a Star Wars title, a High School Musical television series, and an animated Monsters Inc. series. Further details weren't provided.
