The Wall Street Journal reporter tweeted the stunning announcement when Disney confessed it was creating a new Marvel series for its streaming service. Parks had to close for two days because of Hurricane Irma, which also forced the cancellation of three Disney Cruise Line sailings and the shortening of two others.

Sadly, what we don't yet know is whether or not this service will be offered to cord cutters or those with existing cable packages.

Disney has just closed a deal with director Rian Johnson to develop a new "Star Wars" trilogy, and it is planning a live-action "Star Wars" TV series to air on its entertainment streaming service that is expected to launch by the end of 2019. In addition, fans can expect a live-action Star Wars show, an unnamed Marvel series, and shows based on Monsters Inc. and High School Musical.

We'll update this with more information when it becomes available. Iger also revealed that Disney's new service will be priced "substantially below" Netflix, at least when it initially launches. How much would you be willing to pay for exclusive, all-original Star Wars and Marvel content - plus whatever else Disney might have up its sleeve? It would make sense that we would get more details at those times.

CEO Robert Iger said positive results in parks around the world including Shanghai, Hong Kong, Paris, and Tokyo, show that the company has "ample opportunity to continue to invest and continue to expand those businesses". The new series that was announced today is unlikely to be based on the abandoned Underworld project. That value-for-dollar proposition comes in the wake of an across-the-board price increase at Netflix, which announced its bump just ahead of the debut of its own hot property, Stranger Things Season 2.

For the quarter ended September 30, Disney reported earnings of $1.07 a share, excluding some items, missing the $1.14 average of analysts' estimates. Deadline reports the company is developing new TV shows for their upcoming digital streaming service. Marvel's New Warrior could be one of the many series to come to the Disney streaming service.
