Disney+ TV Shows to Stream Episodes Weekly – Won’t Be Dropped All at Once

Yes, including “The Mandalorian” and “High School Musical: The Musical: The Series”

If you were hoping to binge Jon Favreau’s “The Mandalorian” straight through — or any of the other Disney+ TV series that will be available when the streaming service launches Nov. 12 — then you are out of luck, because Disney plans to drop episodes weekly on the forthcoming platform.

During D23Expo in Anaheim, Calif. on Friday, “High School Musical: The Musical: The Series” creator/co-showrunner Tim Federle told TheWrap his super-meta show would release its 10 episodes on a weekly basis. And a Disney+ spokesperson confirmed to us Saturday that all the streaming service’s series will follow this same format.

Along with Favreau’s live-action “Star Wars” series and “HSMTMTS,” other original shows that will have their first episodes available at launch on Disney+ include “The World According to Jeff Goldblum,” the Kristen Bell-produced “Encore” and short-form Pixar collection “Forky Asks a Question.”

You’ll be able to subscribe to Disney’s highly-anticipated streaming competitor to challenge Netflix and Amazon  for $6.99 a month (or as part of a $12.99 bundle with Hulu and ESPN+).

Along with housing its own vast library of content, Disney+ will feature original “Star Wars,” Marvel Studios, Pixar, National Geographic and, of course, Disney productions. Readers can find every project that’s been announced so far here.
