id="article-body" class="row" section="article-body"> The Mandalorian, a big-budget Star Wars spin-off starring Pedro Pascal, will be one of the Disney Plus original series available at launch in November.

Lucasfilm Disney has laid out a vast catalog of new and classic movies and shows you'll be able to stream with the launch of the company's Netflix competitor, Disney Plus. At launch on Nov. 12 in the US, Disney Plus will include new Star Wars, Marvel and Pixar as well as beloved legacy titles.

The service will boast 300 movie titles on day one, and that'll grow to more than 500 (100 of them being "recent" theatrical film releases) in the first year, as well as 7,500 episodes of TV. Disney has even indicated it would revive nostalgic Fox franchises including a Home Alone reboot on Disney Plus. 

With the massive libraries of Disney -- and, now 21st Century Fox -- as candidates for the service, what do we know will be included? 

This article includes all the other titles Disney has announced and when they will be available, plus Disney's official list of every show, movie and release date that it has confirmed.

Overall, we know that Disney Plus will be an exclusive streaming home for all of Disney's theatrical releases in 2019 and beyond, starting with Captain Marvel at launch. Avengers: Endgame will be available to binge Dec. 11, and Disney Plus will be the exclusive place to stream the rest of Disney's slate, including Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker, Frozen 2, Christmas wooden nutcracker soldier The Lion King, Toy Story 4 and so on. It will also have original series and movies exclusive to its service. 

At biennial fan convention D23 Expo, Disney revealed six more original series in addition to originals we knew about, like the live-action, big-budget Star Wars spinoff The Mandalorian. We'll also see a Star Wars Obi-Wan Kenobi series with Ewan McGregor reprising his role; three new live-action Marvel shows based on the characters Ms. Marvel, Moon Knight and She-Hulk; an "unscripted" short-form series Muppets Now; and a Lizzie McGuire revival with Hilary Duff playing the role she originated as a teen. 

But availability of the company's huge legacy catalog of movies and shows is less clear because of a web of licensing agreements that have titles tied up on other services during Disney Plus's early years.

Now playing: Watch this: Everything we know about Disney Plus 1:29 Disney has been tight-lipped about specific exclusions from the service. If you don't see what you're looking for here, that doesn't necessarily mean it's excluded from Disney Plus.

Two high-profile titles showed up during the company's demo of the Disney Plus app but nowhere else: Fox's 2009 blockbuster Avatar and ABC series Once Upon a Time. Kevin Mayer, the executive conducting the app demo, said all titles featured in the demo would be available on Disney Plus during the first year. Avatar is Fox's most successful movie at the box office ever, and Once Upon a Time could be a hint that other popular ABC programs (think Grey's Anatomy, Modern Family, Black-ish and so on) could be intended for Disney Plus too.

Day one library overview
The Marvel movies available at launch will be:

Captain Marvel

It also will have all Pixar movies, except Toy Story 4, which debuted in theaters this summer.

The end of this article also includes the list of classic films that Disney has confirmed will be available at launch.

Day one original shows 

The Mandalorian
The first ever live-action Star Wars series stars Pedro Pascal as a lone gunfighter in the outer reaches of the galaxy, set after the fall of the Empire and before the emergence of the First Order. The Mandalorian is written and executive-produced by Jon Favreau, with Dave Filoni -- of Star Wars: The Clone Wars -- directing the first episode. The cast also includes Gina Carano, Carl Weathers, Giancarlo Esposito, Emily Swallow, Omid Abtahi, Werner Herzog and Nick Nolte. 

Forky Asks a Question
Forky, from Toy Story 4, is a craft project built out of trash, so he has a lot of questions about how the world works. This Pixar animated series of 10 shorts will have Forky explore questions like: What is love? What is time? And what is cheese?

Disney+ will be the exclusive home of SparkShorts, the Pixar Animation Studios short film series designed to discover new storytellers and explore new storytelling techniques from across the studio. 

Marvel's Hero Project 
The reality series looks at positive change several young people are making in their own communities by dedicating their lives to selfless acts. In Hero Project, Marvel celebrates them as superheroes in the real world.

High School Musical: The Musical: The Series
Sprinkled with meta references, the 10-episode scripted series is set at the real-life East High where the original movie was filmed, and follows a group of students as they countdown to opening night of their school's first-ever production of High School Musical.

In a reality series executive produced by Kristen Bell, former castmates of a high school musical re-create their original performance with the help of Broadway's best talent. Part high school reunion, part behind-the-scenes doc, the former students face old friendships and former flames, all while trying to nail choreography. Musicals include The Sound of Music, Beauty and the Beast, Annie and more.

The Imagineering Story 
The documentary series chronicles the 65-year history of Walt Disney Imagineering, looking at the people involved in the design, construction and business of Disney theme parks. The series includes exclusive interviews and never-before-seen footage from Disney's parks worldwide.

The World According to Jeff Goldblum
Jeff Goldblum leads each episode of this reality series by examining a deceptively familiar thing we all love -- like sneakers or ice cream. Goldblum makes disparate connections between science, history and people.

Day one original movies 
Lady & The Tramp 
A reboot of the 1955 animated classic, Tessa Thompson voices Lady -- a prim and proper house dog -- and Justin Theroux voices Tramp -- a tough but lovable stray. Over the course of a series of adventures, they grow closer and come to understand the true meaning of home. The cast also includes Kiersey Clemons (Darling), Thomas Mann (Jim Dear), Janelle Monae (as the voice of Peg), Yvette Nicole Brown (Aunt Sarah) and Sam Elliot (voice of Trusty).

Year one library overview
Within its first year, Disney will have more than 25 original episodic series and more than 10 original movies, documentaries and specials. Combined with library content, Disney Plus will have more than 7,500 series episodes and more than 500 movies, with more than 100 of those films being more recent releases.

Marvel will add at least another eight movies:

Ant-man and the Wasp
