When Daredevil, Luke Cage, and the rest of the Defenders line left Netflix, people knew that Disney would rather make their own platform for their own properties. And so a few months after, Disney officially announced their Disney+ platform and since then we have learned of a number of exclusive shows that will be coming to the platform. Including the Monsters Inc show we reported yesterday, here are other exclusive shows you should look out for when Disney+ launches.
