Disney’s Upcoming Streaming Service Has Some Amazing TV Shows and Movies Planned
When Disney first announced plans to launch its own streaming service, all we knew was that their movies would no longer be available on Netflix, and that some original content was being planned for the new app. Now, more details are starting to come out, and we’re getting a better idea of when we can expect it and what it will offer, including the first list of new, original programming.
According to Deadline, the planned launch date for Disney’s streaming service is fall 2019. The first year will bring five new TV series, including a High School Musical series, a live-action Marvel show, an animated Monsters Inc. show, and a new Star Wars series. It sounds like they’re sparing no expense: With a potential budget cap of $100 million for a 10-episode series, we could be looking at some impressively high-budget stuff.
Four or five original feature-length films are also planned for year one. Deadline reports that Disney is prioritizing their remake of the 1987 classic 3 Men and a Baby, as well as an intense-sounding live-action remake of the animated classic Sword and the Stone, directed by Juan Carlos Fresnadillo (28 Days Later) and written by Bryan Cogman (Game of Thrones). The children’s book Timmy Failure will also be adapted into a feature-length film, which so far has Spotlight director Tom McCarthy involved.
According to Deadline, several other projects are already in post-production and are expected to be among the first on the service, including Magic Camp and Noelle, starring Anna Kendrick, Bill Hader, and Shirley MacLaine.
Also rumored to be in the works: an adaptation of the classic Spanish novel Don Quixote and a live-action Lady and the Tramp remake, as well as The PaperMagician,Stargirl, and Togo.
If you can’t already tell, the aim of the Disney streaming service is to be family friendly. Per Deadline, any R-rated material will head to Hulu (which Disney now oversees as part of their purchase of 21st Century Fox). And there’s some good news for Netflix fans! Disney reportedly plans to leave their multiple current Marvel series right where they are.

Pocket doors are so delightful in and of themselves. They appear when you need them, get tucked away when you don't, and make it easy to define rooms while keeping an open floor plan. Add to the pocket door a joyful patterned wallpaper surprise, and you will be sent right into fits of visual jubilation! Or something ;) Today we're sharing two simple and impactful pocket door makeovers that zhuzh up your space in a jiffy.
Anjelika Temple here, co-founder of Brit + Co and proud owner of several pocket doors! When I moved into my first real grown-up house a couple years ago, I knew I wanted to incorporate wallpaper so reached out to our friends at Chasing Paper to see how we might collaborate. It felt like a total lightbulb moment when I realized I could create a surprise pop of pattern on a couple sets of pocket doors.
Not only is it a whimsical way to bring color into a space, but the doors double as picture-perfect backdrops for all your SFH (selfies from home, obvs).
A few pro tips about install:
- Removable wallpaper is miraculously forgiving! You can take it on and off multiple times without it losing integrity (or mucking up your surface).
- I ordered this adhesive wallpaper installation kit with a squeegee and xacto knife and it worked super well. I also recommend a sharp pair of scissors for cutting longer lines.
- This is a two-person job! Get a friend, put on a playlist, and get ready to bond.
- Wild, organic patterns like Tally are great because it's challenging to spot any imperfections in pattern alignment; keep pattern choice in mind if you've got a lot of corners to match up. More geometric patterns and larger shapes leave less room for error (but are awesome in their own right!).
BATHROOM POCKET DOORS
In our primary bathroom, we chose the wallpaper pattern Tally, designed by Kelly Ventura, in White and Navy. In our space, the navy reads as a soft black, which is perfect for the space. It's easy to combine an ever-rotating collection of linens with the Tally pattern.
I love how the white trim becomes the perfect frame around this pocket door piece of art.
My favorite moment in this space is the fact that you actually get a third pop of pattern thanks to our serendipitously placed mirror!
And yes, this one works pretty darn well as a backdrop too ;)
LIVING ROOM DOUBLE DOORS
This set of doors is definitely a focal point of our home. It separates our living room from our primary bedroom which opens onto our backyard. The doors are pretty much always open, but when they're closed we wanted to evoke a fun, nature-inspired vibe. With that in mind, we selected the Lines and Moons pattern by Thimblepress in Green and Brown.
Earth mama vibes up in here! I love how the shapes and colors echo the ferns you see through the windows and the acorn wood details throughout the house.
Love this pattern moment, and xacto-ing out the door handle is def on the oddly satisfying DIY list.
For a pattern lover like me, I love that now I have this instant photo backdrop!
