It’s been a busy few hours for Disney on the revealing front – not only have they teased fans with their new slew of superhero shows, but they’ve also got another surprise in store, and it’s related to The Simpsons.
Yes, that’s right. Like their new shows, Loki, Wanda Vision, etc, The Simpsons are streaming exclusively on their streaming service, Disney+.
No doubt another attempt to boost the value and star-power of their service, Disney has obviously taken no time in utilizing their recent purchase of 21th Century Fox. And in true fashion for The Simpsons, a comedic teaser has been produced where Homer and the gang welcome their “new corporate overlords” by wearing Mickey Mouse hats. Check it out below.
Notice the attention to detail – from the Darth Vader statue to the Bob Iger statue to the appearance by Dumbo. And of course, the image of Rupert Murdoch in the trash can…
The Simpsons will be on the Disney+ streaming service the very day it launches on November 12th, 2019. If you want your fill of everyone’s favorite yellow family – as well as the other goodies on offer – then you’ll have to pay $7 a month. That adds up to $70 a year overall.
Regarding the price, Disney Chairman Bob Iger has insisted that fact that it reflects the “fact that it will have substantially less volume” than other services. However, the company will make up for it with high-quality content (like The Simpsons and the MCU shows, for example).
But not all of Disney’s content will be put on Disney+. It’s a family friendly service, after all. That means its edgier content – including its four animated Marvel shows – will appear on Hulu. The aforementioned service was previously owned by 21st Century Fox, who also owned The Simpsons.
