Check out the trailers for "The Mandalorian," "Noelle," "Lady and the Tramp" and other films and series released during Disney's D23 Expo.

ANAHEIM, Calif. -- Disney's D23 Expo has come and gone, and it did not disappoint. Just like in years past, the company used the biannual fan convention to drop trailers and first looks at its upcoming shows and series, but with one twist: this year, Disney+ was in the mix for the first time.

Disney+ is the upcoming streaming service that will feature television and film content from Walt Disney Studios, Marvel, Pixar, Lucasfilm and National Geographic. The streamer is currently slated for a November 12 launch and will feature library content from the company's brands as well as exclusive films and television series.

Lucasfilm previews "The Mandalorian"

"Bounty hunting is a complicated profession," teases the newly released trailer for Lucasfilm's series "The Mandalorian," which will be available on Disney+ at launch.

Watch the trailer for "The Mandalorian," a Lucasfilm series coming in November to the Disney+ streaming service.

Here's how writer and executive producer Jon Favreau teased the series' premise last year: "After the stories of Jango Fett and Boba Fett, another warrior emerges in the Star Wars universe. The Mandalorian is set after the fall of the Empire and before the emergence of the First Order. We follow the travails of a lone gunfighter in the outer reaches of the galaxy far from the authority of the New Republic."

"Mandalorian" stars Pedro Pascal as the title character, a lone gunfighter who has been compared to a Western or samurai hero. It co-stars Gina Carano as a character named Cara Dune and Carl Weathers as a bounty hunter named Greef. Werner Herzog and Giancarlo Esposito also co-star. Emily Swallow, Omid Abtahi and Nick Nolte will also appear in the series.

Meet Santa's sister, "Noelle"

Disney+ is kicking off the holiday season with "Noelle," a film that introduces viewers to Noelle Kringle and her brother, Santa's adult children. According to the trailer, Noelle Kringle's brother is taking over as Santa in the film. It teases that all is not well on the North Pole as Noelle embarks on a mission to rescue her brother before Christmas.

National Geographic previews "The World According To Jeff Goldblum"

"One Day at Disney" book, docu-series for Disney+

Disney is pulling back the curtain to tell the stories of its employees (known as "cast members") across the globe in "One Day at Disney," a book and companion docu-series that will stream exclusively on Disney Plus.

Here's how Disney described the book: "On February 21 of this year, nearly 80 different photo shoots took place all around the globe, as Disney dispatched photographers to capture images of employees and cast members who drive creativity and innovation at The Walt Disney Company. From Shanghai Disneyland and ESPN to Pixar and even the set of ABC's Modern Family, these dazzling photographs-and the memorable stories behind them-will be featured in the hardbound, collectible book, written by Bruce Steele and now available for pre-order."

The "One Day at Disney" docu-series on Disney Plus will shine a light on some of the talented men and women bringing Disney's most beloved stories to life.

The docu-series, which will premiere on Dec. 3, chronicles everybody from the Disney Imagineer who helped bring Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge to life to the actor playing Rafiki in the Madrid production of Disney on Broadway's "The Lion King."
