In addition, Disney would also launch 15 live-action, animation and Pixar series during the same period.

Disney made the astounding announcement at its annual Investor Day, this year streamed worldwide.

Disney’s Chairman, Media and Entertainment Distribution Kareem Daniel said: “With these Disney+ originals, along with theatrical releases and library titles, we will be adding something new to the service every week.”

Disney has had big success with The Mandalorian on Disney+, whose second season is winding up on the streaming network, and will soon debut Marvel’s WandaVision as well as The Falcon and the Winter Soldier and Loki, again starring Tom Hiddlestone.

As well, Disney+ will incorporate a new global content platform “tile” on its streaming service – Star, which will be embedded in the Disney+ app.

The new content will come at a cost – the subscription for Disney+ will increase by 2€ in Europe and an equivalent amount elsewhere.

By any measure the rise of Disney+ has been phenomenal in 2020. Disney’s chairman of international operations and direct-to-consumer, Rebecca Campbell, said it had signed up 86.8 million subscribers in its first year.

As well, it now had 38.8 million subscribers on its streaming channel Hulu and 11.5 million for sports platform ESPN+.

You can sign up to Disney+ here for just £59.99 to get a full year’s subscription. You will be able to stream Loki and so much more.
