Disney's streaming app gets Marvel and 'Star Wars' cartoons

To cater for fans who don't want to purchase digital downloads or Blu-rays, Disney launched its own streaming service called DisneyLife. For £10 a month, UK subscribers can watch a huge selection of Disney movies and TV shows, stream music and download books and apps. However, since its debut in November, the service has yet to include anything from the company's other big subsidiaries, like Marvel and Lucasfilm. Luckily, that's set to change on April 18th, when DisneyLife becomes home to Star Wars Rebels and a handful of animated Marvel book and animated shows.

Disney will kick things off with Avengers Assemble, Hulk, Agents of S.M.A.S.H and Ultimate Spider-Man cartoons. Star Wars Rebels, if you're not aware, is an animated series that chronicles the events between Star Wars: Revenge of the Sith and Star Wars: A New Hope (and aligns with the upcoming film Rogue One: A Star Wars Story). Their inclusion should be welcome, particularly as subscribers can already watch a collection of Marvel content on Netflix and Amazon Video.
