The streaming wars are officially upon us and with the launch of Disney+ less than a month away, Disney decided to show off just how massive the streaming service’s library is going to be by tweeting out an epic video and thread that shows basically all of the movies and shows that will be available for users starting on November 12. Netflix, you’ve been warned.
The official Disney+ account tweeted out the video this morning with a simple message: “It. Is. Time.” Despite only being 11 seconds long, the video proves its point by blowing through the seemingly endless content that will be available on Disney+. Meanwhile, Disney also published a 3-hour-long YouTube video montage, which more or less confirms the same thing. (yes, you read that correctly, it’s a 3-hour long commercial)
On Twitter, the first video was followed-up by a thread that appears to list every single movie and show individually by year and if you are able to make it to the end of the never-ending thread, legend has it you get a personalized greeting from Walt Disney’s cryogenically frozen head.
It. Is. Time. From Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs to The Mandalorian, check out basically everything coming to #DisneyPlus in the U.S. on November 12.

It’s no secret that Disney+ will have a deep catalog of beloved movies and shows but this tweet thread serves as a reminder of just how much of modern entertainment falls under the Disney umbrella. Starting with Snow White in 1937, the thread then goes through more than seven decades of movies, including classics like Sleeping Beauty, modern hits like Captain Marvel, and everything in between, including Star Wars Episodes 1-6 and the first 30-ish seasons of The Simpsons.
Of course, Disney+ won’t just have old content, as the streaming app will have brand-new shows and movies, including The Mandalorian, a badass bounty hunter series that takes place in the Star Wars galaxy, and several MCU shows that will involve Loki, Hawkeye, and the new Captain America.
Disney+ is available for $6.99 per month or $69.99 for the whole year. Will the relatively low price and a seemingly infinite collection of movies be enough to sway people to leave Netflix behind? Realistically, no, as most people will probably just end up signing up for both, at least initially. But watching these two behemoths battle it out for streaming supremacy may prove more entertaining than half the movies and shows on either platform.
