Good news to everyone asking about classic Disney content. All of the Disney Vault will be available on Disney+!
Here’s how Wikipedia describes The Vault:
The “Disney Vault” was a term used by Walt Disney Studios Home Entertainment for its policy of putting home video releases of Walt Disney Animation Studios’s animated features on moratorium. Each Disney film was available for purchase for a limited time, after which it is put “in the vault” and not made available in stores for several years until its re-release.
The Disney+ library will include Over 5,000 episodes of Disney Channel and Disney Junior content and Disney original movies of the past.
Disney Channel fans will see some of their favorites coming back with all new content when the streaming service launches new original content for kids, including a new Phineas and Ferb film. Hilary Duff will be back as well to reprise her role as Lizzie McGuire in a new series. Another original will be a Ms. Marvel TV series, focusing on fan favorite character Kamela Khan.
Disney+ will also have the entire Pixar library available to streamers within the first year.
We’ve heard about High School Musical: The Musical: The Series. Disney previously said the series would be available at launch. We now know the series will take place in the same universe as the High School Musical movies, will take place at the same school where those movies were filmed, and will be based on students creating a musical based on the movies.
