On November 12, Canada and the Netherlands will have access to Disney+, along with the United States; one week after this date, people living in Australia and New Zealand will be able to start watching films on Disney+, according to CNN.

Along with disclosing the rollout dates on Monday, Disney also began their social media accounts for Disney+ on Instagram, Twitter, and Facebook. In its most recent social media post on these accounts, Disney released a short clip that flashes through classic Disney films accompanied by the statement “Some of the most beloved stories in the world are moving to a new home.” The profile pages across the accounts advertise the fact that the streaming service will also feature films from Pixar, Marvel, Star Wars, and National Geographic.
