Disney+ is the studio's foray into digital content creation, a streaming service to compete with Netflix. The platform will be launched in late 2019 as previously announced by CEO Bob Iger in 2018 and is expected to feature new original shows and films based on Marvel and Star Wars characters as well.

These include a prequel to the Rogue One film, which will be based on the character Cassian Andor portrayed by Diego Luna, and Jon Favreau's live-action series The Mandalorian. A Star Wars spin-off series on Qi’Ra and Lando Calrissian is also reportedly in the works.

Tom Hiddleson, who plays Loki in the Avengers franchise, has been confirmed to star in a standalone series for the streaming platform. In September 2018, Disney hinted that it is developing standalone shows on popular Marvel comics characters Loki and Wanda Maximoff aka Scarlett Witch, played by Elizabeth Olsen, for its new streaming video service. It was also reported that Marvel is developing a Falcon-Winter Soldier limited TV series for Disney+.
