Potential titles set for the new streaming platform have been revealed.

As reported by Deadline, new details about Disney's upcoming streaming service have been revealed. The platform is set for a fall 2019 release and a potential launch lineup has been unveiled, including a Star Wars series and a new Marvel show.

Though full details and pricing have not been announced yet, Deadline's sources indicate that the service will arrive in the US first before eventually expanding to foreign markets. Programming goals for the first year include four to five original movies and five TV series. With that said, the platform will not include R-rated movies. Instead, the plan is for R-rated content to be relegated to Hulu. Meanwhile, current Marvel shows, including those on Netflix, are expected to remain on their respective networks and services.

Some new movie titles reportedly in development or consideration for the Disney streaming service include Don Quixote from a script written by Billy Ray, Stargirl from director Julia Hart, Togo from director Ericson Core, Lady and the Tramp, The Paper Magician3 Men and a Baby, Sword and the Stone, and Timmy Failure.

Likewise, films already in post-production that are set for the platform include director Mark Waters' Magic Camp, and director Mark Lawrence's Noelle starring Anna Kendrick, Bill Hader, and Shirley MacLaine.

Finally, TV projects expected to launch on the streaming service include a new Star Wars show, a new live-action Marvel series, a Monsters Inc show, and High School Musical.

More details, including pricing and an exact launch date for Disney's new streaming service are still forthcoming.
