Disney Plus launched on Tuesday, Nov. 12, bringing hundreds of movies and shows. Now that we have the Disney Plus release schedule, we're already casting our eyes to the future, to see what the service has in store to keep things fresh.

We just got half of the December Disney Plus lineup, which helps fill out the next month. On top of that, Disney's already provided The Mandalorian's full release date schedule.

For original content, Disney's play appears to be focused on Fridays, with one exception (a Wednesday when The Mandalorian comes out early to make room for the new Star Wars movie).

Wondering where the MCU shows are? Well, we've just got seasonal release dates for those. The first to drop will be The Falcon and The Winter Soldier (Fall 2020), followed by WandaVision (Spring 2021) and Loki (Spring 2021).
