Friday 12th November will bring treats to celebrate the streaming service’s 2nd birthday.
Disney has announced a global celebration to mark the second anniversary of its home streaming service.
Subscribers will be treated to new releases across the service’s six brands, Disney, Pixar, Marvel, Star Wars, National Geographic and Star, as well as a ‘special presentation’ for fans with sneak peeks into what’s to come.
Here’s the line-up as announced:
- Shang-Chi and The Legend of The Ten Rings – the streaming premiere
- Jungle Cruise – being made available to all subscribers, rather then ‘premiere access’
- Home Sweet Home Alone, a new Disney+ Original movie reimagining the popular holiday franchise
- Olaf Presents – An all-new series of shorts which sees Frozen’s beloved snowman retelling classic Disney tales
- Frozen Fever, Feast, Paperman and Get A Horse! – The Disney+ debut of some fan favorite shorts
- Ciao Alberto – An animated short from Pixar, featuring characters from Luca
- The Simpsons – A new short from that pays tribute to Disney+’s marquee brands
- The World According to Jeff Goldblum – the first five episodes from season two
- Boba Fett – A special celebrating the origins and legacy of Star Wars’ legendary bounty hunter
- The Marvel Cinematic Universe – A celebratory special with an exciting look towards the future
- Dopesick – an original series starring Michael Keaton
Additionally, we read that subscribers will be entertained with a fan celebration, which will include breaking news, first looks, new trailers, exclusive clips, and appearances from Disney+ creators and stars.
While they’re at it, Disney has also announced some more international launches for the service. Disney+ will make its debut in South Korea and Taiwan on November 12, and in Hong Kong on November 16.
Bob Chapek, Chief Executive Officer of the The Walt Disney Company is billing this first Disney+ Day as an inaugural event, with the date set to become an “annual tentpole”. Which we think is press release speak for expect this sort of thing every year.
Is it too late to book the day off work?
