List Rules Only brand-new shows that will be premiering on Disney+.

Announced with much excitement in April 2019, the official lineup for Disney+ is the latest streaming service to tempt our wallets and fill up our watch lists. With big names like Marvel, Pixar, and Star Wars among their brands (not counting the magic of Disney franchises themselves), the Disney+ streaming service has scheduled a lot of great shows right out of the gate. Along with streaming services like Amazon Video, Hulu and Netflix, channels like Disney+ feature some of the best shows on streaming TV right now. Disney, much like their subsidiary Marvel, has several phases of content they'll be rolling out in 2019, 2020, 2021, and beyond!

One of the most anticipated shows from Disney+ in 2019 is The Mandalorian. This Star Wars spin-off takes place between the events of Episode VI – Return of the Jedi and Episode VII – The Force Awakens. Another return to a favorite franchise is High School Musical: The Musical: The Series, which is based on the High School Musical series of films. But that's not the only musical series premiering on Disney+ in 2019. Encore! is a revival of the 2017 Kristen Bell-hosted special, which reunites casts from high school musicals - when they're adults - and follows them as they re-stage their play.

Marvel's Phase 4 has almost as many Disney+ shows planned as they do new Marvel movies. Loki and Hawkeye both have shows scheduled for 2021, as do Scarlet Witch and Vision - though they'll be sharing a show with WandaVision. Closer to channel launch, Disney+ will be releasing a new Monsters Inc. franchise series, Monsters At Work, as well as an entry in the MCU, with The Falcon and The Winter Soldier.
