Disney fans who have been eagerly awaiting more details on Disney+, the company's previously announced dedicated streaming service, just got an earful of answers on what to expect when the service makes its debut. As part of Disney's Investor Day, the company announced Disney+'s official launch date (November 12, 2019) as well as its price point ($6.99 per month). The Mouse House also confirmed that the entirety of the Star Wars franchise will be available on the service (even if not right away).

While films from the Star Wars saga have been sporadically available on Netflix, the Disney+ platform will feature all of the movies from all of the franchise's trilogies, as well as a tie-in animated series. Standalone films such as Rogue One and Solo: A Star Wars Story will also be available for streaming.

Though the service will launch in November, not all of the company's Star Wars content will be in its library from the get-go. All franchise installments through The Force Awakens will reportedly be available upon the service’s launch, with all content after that, such as The Last Jedi and Solo, popping up later on.

Plans for the service are being reported to start at $6.99 per month or $70 per year. Disney also announced many other exciting additions to the platform, including The Simpsons (which came about as part of their recent deal with 21st Century Fox) and several original Marvel series.

Netflix's Stranger Things Season 3 Video Is Full of Easter Eggs You Might Have Missed

Stranger Things's third season was full of many surprising twists and turns, not to mention some awkward teen romances. While the gruesome Mind Flayer and the evil Russians were no doubt terrifying, the show kept its sweet touch of nostalgia due mainly to the fact that the Hawkins gang is now smack-dab in the middle of the 1980s.

It doesn’t take a keen eye to see many of the series's '80s references, particularly in the latest season. With scenes taking place at the new mall, references from the decade—including Hot Dog on a Stick, Sam Goody, and Back to the Future—are all part of the setting. However, creators Ross and Matt Duffer wanted to pay true homage to the decade, and thus left Easter eggs throughout the season that you likely missed.

Luckily for us, as BGR reports, Netflix has just released a video explaining the hidden references (with the New Coke debate, Mrs. Wheeler’s erotica novel, and Hopper’s Tom Selleck-inspired Hawaiian shirt among some of our favorites).

Check out the full video above and see what you missed!

Disney's Lady and the Tramp Remake Will Star a Mixed-Breed Rescue Dog Named Monte

Following the success of The Lion King, Lady and the Tramp will be the next classic Disney movie to be revamped in 2019. And while most of Disney's live-action remakes boast star-studded casts, the lead in this upcoming film is totally unknown. That's because Monte, a mixed-breed dog from Phoenix, Arizona, spent his pre-Hollywood days living in animal shelters.

As AZ Central reports, Monte will make his film debut as Tramp when Lady and the Tramp releases alongside the launch of Disney+, the company's upcoming streaming service, on November 12. In the original 1955 animated movie, Tramp was portrayed as a mutt who lived on the streets, so instead of looking for a purebred dog to portray the character, producers stayed faithful to the source material.

Monte lived in a New Mexico animal shelter before transferring to HALO Animal Rescue in Phoenix. When the filmmakers went there in search of a star for their movie, he instantly won them over. Like Tramp, Monte is a mixed-breed dog, but the shelter doesn't know exactly what his background is, other than being part terrier. Despite his scrappy appearance, Monte is very well-behaved. He knows how to sit, walk on a leash, and he's friendly with everyone he meets, according to the shelter.

The Lady and the Tramp crew adopted Monte in April 2018, and earlier this month, Disney released the first promotional image of him for the film. It features Monte snuggling up with his co-star, Rose, who plays Lady. True to the original, Lady is portrayed by a purebred cocker spaniel. Though you likely don't recognize the dogs on the poster, you may have heard of the voice actors who will bring them to life: Justin Theroux is playing Tramp and Tessa Thompson is Lady.
