(KGTV) — I can show you the world. At least, that's how Disney plans to address content on its upcoming streaming platform.

Disney Plus, set to launch later this year, is set to bring the "entire Disney motion picture library" to viewers, according to Disney CEP Bob Iger. That means vintage films like "Dumbo," "The Little Mermaid," and "Snow White" can be seen in all their glory — minus the VHS tape distortion.

During an investor's meeting in St. Louis, Iger said the service would house the House of Mouse's library "soon after launch" and include movies typically kept in the "Disney Vault," which brought out movies every few years, Polygon reported.

All of this in addition to new movies and series developed under the service, Iger added, such as the service's live-action Star Wars series called "The Mandalorian."

For fans simply buying in for Disney's newest movies, Iger said films would find their way onto the platform within a year of their release.

“It’s going to combine both the old and the new,” Iger said. “All of the films that we’re releasing this year, [starting] with Captain Marvel, will also be on the service.”

A release date for Disney Plus this year has yet to be announced.
