Disney fans who have been eagerly awaiting more details on Disney+, the company's previously announced dedicated streaming service, just got an earful of answers on what to expect when the service makes its debut. As part of Disney's Investor Day, the company announced Disney+'s official launch date (November 12, 2019) as well as its price point ($6.99 per month). The Mouse House also confirmed that the entirety of the Star Wars franchise will be available on the service (even if not right away).

While films from the Star Wars saga have been sporadically available on Netflix, the Disney+ platform will feature all of the movies from all of the franchise's trilogies, as well as a tie-in animated series. Standalone films such as Rogue One and Solo: A Star Wars Story will also be available for streaming.

Though the service will launch in November, not all of the company's Star Wars content will be in its library from the get-go. All franchise installments through The Force Awakens will reportedly be available upon the service’s launch, with all content after that, such as The Last Jedi and Solo, popping up later on.

Plans for the service are being reported to start at $6.99 per month or $70 per year. Disney also announced many other exciting additions to the platform, including The Simpsons (which came about as part of their recent deal with 21st Century Fox) and several original Marvel series.

Stranger Things is great at placing the truly terrifying alongside the absolutely adorable. One minute we are gushing over Eleven and Mike’s teen romance, and the next we’re jumping off the couch at the sight of those possessed by the Mind Flayer.

No matter how seamless the Duffer Brothers' Netflix series is in weaving together these moments, it seems like it would be impossible to make the Demogorgon cute. But somehow, one crafty fan has done just that.

Etsy shop ThatCraftyFriendShop has created Demogorgon headpieces that fit perfectly on your dog’s head.

People reports that the headpieces range in size from extra small (for 5- to 10-pound dogs) all the way to extra large (for dogs over 75 pounds). Prices range from $25 to $75, depending on the size of your four-legged friend.

These wool and felt doggy costumes are perfect for Halloween, or even a Stranger Things watch party while you continue to binge and re-binge the third seasonwith a decked-out doggy by your side.

J.K. Rowling Reveals How San Francisco Inspired Major Harry Potter Location

The award-winning play Harry Potter and the Cursed Child is about to open at the Curran Theater in San Francisco. The two-part drama takes place 19 years after the events in Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows and depicts Harry’s life as his son, Albus, is about to begin school at Hogwarts.

J.K. Rowling has pointed out that San Francisco had a deep influence on the original Harry Potter novels, SFGate reports. In the video below, Rowling talks about how Alcatraz, the infamous former prison, inspired her creation of Azkaban.

"[San Francisco] is a very distinctive, special place—I love the feel of it, I love the architecture,” Rowling said. “I've actually said this before, but Azkaban is a combination of Alcatraz and Abbadon, which is an old word for hell. I squeezed those words together. The idea of the rock in the middle of the ocean was directly inspired by a visit to Alcatraz."

With its mist and Gothic mood, it’s no wonder this slice of San Francisco inspired a big part of the Harry Potter world.
