We’re in the endgame now, and the long-awaited arrival of Avengers: Endgame in theatres today has had us at io9 looking back on over a decade of Marvel Studios movies. We’ve already discussed our favourite moments from the films—but the MCU has become about so much more than the movies. It’s about the experience itself!
With Disney now owning the largest library of content in the world through a series of deals and acquisitions, the company has put together all the building blocks it needs to launch a massive streaming service. That service, Disney+, now has a release date and we have some idea about pricing and available content. Here's everything we know.
Video: The force has awoken. The last of the Jedi has relit the spark for a new generation beyond him.

Unless you live in a pop culture bell jar, your child will be introduced to Star Wars. George Lucas's space opera has so thoroughly and efficiently saturated the entertainment-sphere, Star Wars indoctrination is as inevitable as exposure to cold germs at daycare. You can let fate, cultural osmosis, and Disney marketing executives control when and how your child learns about Luke and Leia, or you can guide them like a Jedi guides a padawan, making sure childhood Star Wars is something magical you can share.
You'd think it wouldn't be surprising that a movie that begins with the words “a long time ago” is in fact about the past, but here we are. By now, it's clear that Disney's Star Wars sequel trilogy (Episodes 7, 8, and 9) is defined primarily by its relationship to the past -- and that Rian Johnson's The Last Jedi is doing its best to upend everything about how this works. The Last Jedi is a Star Wars film, but not how we know it. The key to all of this is history.
