Recently Disney released several details about their upcoming streaming service, Disney+.

According to a Disney press release:

Disney+ will offer ad-free programming with a variety of original feature films, documentaries, episodic and unscripted series and short-form content, along with unprecedented access to Disney’s incredible library of films and television series.

I’ve combed through the entire lineup and highlighted a few nerdy shows and movies:

Live-Action Series

The Mandalorian – The first ever live-action Star Wars series, is written and executive-produced by Emmy®-nominated producer and actor Jon Favreau, with Dave Filoni (“Star Wars: The Clone Wars”) directing the first episode. The highly anticipated series features an all-star cast including Pedro Pascal, Gina Carano, Carl Weathers, Giancarlo Esposito, Emily Swallow, Omid Abtahi, Werner Herzog and Nick Nolte. Set after the fall of the Empire and before the emergence of the First Order, the series follows a lone gunfighter in the outer reaches of the galaxy far from the authority of the New Republic.
Timing: Available at launch

The Falcon and The Winter Soldier – Anthony Mackie will return as Falcon and Sebastian Stan will reprise his role as Winter Soldier in the new Marvel Studios series. Timing: Year One

Loki – Tom Hiddleston will reprise his role as Loki in the new Marvel Studios series. Timing: Year Two

WandaVision – Elizabeth Olsen will return as Wanda Maximoff and Paul Bettany will reprise his role as The Vision in the new Marvel Studios series.
Timing: Year Two

Marvel’s Hero Project – The series, produced by Marvel New Media in partnership with MaggieVision Productions, reveals the remarkable, positive change several young heroes are making in their own communities. These young heroes have dedicated their lives to selfless acts of bravery and kindness, and now, Marvel celebrates them as the true Super Heroes they are.
Timing: Available at launch

The World According to Jeff Goldblum – Through the prism of Jeff Goldblum’s always inquisitive and highly entertaining mind, nothing is as it seems in this new series. Each episode is centered around something we all love – like sneakers or ice cream – as Jeff pulls the thread on these deceptively familiar objects and unravels a wonderful world of astonishing connections, fascinating science and history, amazing people, and a whole lot of surprising big ideas and insights.
Timing: Available at launch

Marvel’s 616 – An anthological documentary series from Marvel New Media in partnership with Supper Club that explores the intersection between Marvel’s rich legacy of stories, characters and creators and the world outside your window. Each documentary will dive into the rich historical, cultural and societal context that has become inseparable from stories of the Marvel Universe.
Timing: Year One
