Disney+ (pronounced Disney Plus) is an American subscription video on-demand streaming service owned and operated by the Direct-to-Consumer & International (DTCI) division of The Walt Disney Company. The service primarily distributes films and television series produced by Walt Disney Studios and Walt Disney Television, with the service advertising content from Disney's Marvel, National Geographic, Pixar, and Star Wars brands in particular. It originally launched on November 12, 2019.

Logo: On a dark blue-blue gradient background, we see the corporate Disney logo in white. A bright star comes from the top of the letter D and makes an arch of light which gets brighter as the star falls. The star then 'explodes' next to the logo and makes a plus symbol that's slightly curved to match the arch. Right when it does this, the word 'ORIGINAL' appears beneath the logo, with the text appearing to 'slide out' from the 'O'.
FX/SFX: The star, the arch, the 'explosion' and the words appearing.
Music/Sounds: A quiet, somber synthesized note, followed by a crack-like sound when the plus is formed (which sounds similar to the Nintendo Switch clicking sound used on their trailer and TV commercials).
Availability: Current. Seen on Disney+ original programs, such as The Mandalorian, Forky Asks A Question, and High School Musical: The Musical: The Series, to name a few. The logo surprisingly appeared before Maggie Simpson in "Playdate with Destiny" but was edited out a day after. Also appears at the beginning of Pixar's Soul and Luca, both of which had been forced to skip their theatrical runs due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. Don't expect to see this on American prints of 101 Dalmatian Street and Legend of the Three Caballeros, as they were originally not produced for Disney+ in the US, but the service still distributes those shows in that country.
Editor's Note: None.
