Still more teases of upcoming product for the Disney+ streaming service took place this morning outside of the already covered Marvel, Star Wars, movie and revival announcements.
First up, Disney Channel President Gary Marsh confirmed over 5,000 episodes of Disney Channel and Disney Jr content will be coming to the service – everything from “Duck Tales” to “The Descendants” to “Hannah Montana” and more.
“Monsters at Work” is an animated workplace comedy sequel series that will focus on a new main character, Tylor Tuskmon (voiced by Ben Feldman) working at the Monstropolis corporation at a rather confusing time. Tylor was hired to be a scarer on the scare floor, but on his first day, the company switches to laughter. Aisha Tyler will voice his mother while Kelly Marie Tran, Henry Winkler, and Lucas Neff also lend their voices to the series which will premiere sometime within the service’s first year.
A new unscripted “Muppets” short form series called “Muppets Now” is coming next year. No celebrity guest reveals either, only that they will happen in the series which is very much under wraps for now.
They showed a trailer (see below) for “The World According To Jeff Goldblum,” a twelve-episode National Geographic-produced documentary series with each episode focusing on Jeff’s exploration of a different topic from denim to ice cream to tattoos. The series will launch with the service on November 12th.
Also out is a trailer for the ten-episode “High School Musical: The Musical: The Series,” a very meta take on the original property with high school-age characters playing versions of Troy, Gabriella, Sharpay, Ryan from the original film in their high school’s production of a musical based on said movie. Added twist – their high school happens to be the same one where the movie was filmed.
There was also a trailer for “Encore!,” the new reality series from executive producer Kristen Bell which kicks off at launch. The series brings together former castmates of a high school musical, tasking them with re-creating their original performance in a high school reunion like no other. Emotions run high as the former students face faded friendships, former flames, self-doubt, and killer choreography.
Disney+ will be available for $6.99 per month or $69.99 per year.
