At the 2019 Produced By conference Agnes Chu, Disney+ senior VP of content, spoke about what will debut on the Disney+ streaming service in November.
Chu spoke at The Streamers: Meet the Buyers panel and said Disney+ will debut with a large Disney library along with its other brands, including Disney, Pixar, Star Wars, Marvel, and National Geographic. Disney+ will focus its content on shows the whole family can watch together. Agnes Chu spoke further about the subject on the panel saying:
We’re certainly going to have personalization of our products — that’s important to us too, that our service is serving up things that are specific to your taste — but when you think about our brands you think about the storytelling that we have, co-viewing is very much a sweet spot.We hope we can be a digital hearth that brings the family together.
Agnes Chu also went on to speak about the upcoming Marvel spin-off shows, including Falcon & Winter Soldier, WandaVision, and Loki:
“At Marvel Studios, Kevin Feige —who is shepherding this amazing tentpole theatrical Marvel Cinematic Universe — he is the same person behind all the Marvel Studios series that will be on Disney+, so he’s bringing in great storytellers, directors, producers and writers for these series.”
Chu also brought up diversity and inclusion for the streaming service, citing just how important it is. She briefly talked about the upcoming series Diary of a Female President about a young Cuban-American girl who dreams of being president with Gina Rodriguez signed on as an executive producer. All this plus the upcoming Star Wars series The Mandalorian gives Disney+ a large library upon debut.

Here is the official synopsis for The Lion King:
Director Jon Favreau’s all-new “The Lion King” journeys to the African savanna where a future king is born. Simba idolizes his father, King Mufasa, and takes to heart his own royal destiny. But not everyone in the kingdom celebrates the new cub’s arrival. Scar, Mufasa’s brother—and former heir to the throne—has plans of his own. The battle for Pride Rock is ravaged with betrayal, tragedy and drama, ultimately resulting in Simba’s exile. With help from a curious pair of newfound friends, Simba will have to figure out how to grow up and take back what is rightfully his.
Directed by Jon Favreau from a script written by Jeff Nathanson, The Lion Kingstars Donald Glover as Simba, Beyoncé Knowles-Carter as Nala, James Earl Jones as Mufasa, Chiwetel Ejiofor as Scar, Seth Rogen as Pumbaa and Billy Eichner as Timon.
The Lion King will be released in theaters on July 19, 2019.
