Spak-Spang:
Does anyone know if this is an international release or just a US release?  Or if Disney will be putting restrictions from world wide access?  Because I would be interested in this service much more than Netflix and I would subscribe if it is accessible in Korea.

--- Quote from: Engadget ---Disney revealed its plans for a "worldwide" rollout touching all of the "major" regions in North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific and Latin America over the next couple of years. It doesn't sound like it will touch Netflix's actual worldwide ability that skips only a few countries, but should reach most of the larger markets by 2021.

Not quite the specific answer, but they are launching worldwide being a bit vague about specifics currently.

UncleBob:
The claim that all Disney movies will be on the service seems... questionable.

Will Song of the South be available?

The entire library was confirmed at a March shareholders meeting.


--- Quote from: Engadget link=https://www.engadget.com/2019/03/07/disney-plus-entire-movie-library/ ---"The service, which I mentioned earlier is going to launch later in the year, is going to combine what we call library product, movies, and television, with a lot of original product as well, movies and television. And at some point fairly soon after launch it will house the entire Disney motion picture library, so the movies that you speak of that traditionally have been kept in a 'vault' and brought out basically every few years will be on the service," said Iger during the meeting.

But that specific language seems to have been left out of today's discussion, and I can't find anything that says if they answered that specific question.

Edit: I didn't watch the full 3.5 hour video, but I've been reading along with releases and things.  Not sure if any reliable source said today that the full vault was going to be released.
