Disney Plus Day! Here's What You May Have Missed
There's no doubt that Disney+ and all of its outlets including Marvel, Star Wars, National Geographic, Fox, and Pixar is the most magical streaming service of them all. Bringing together multiple fandoms, Disney created a platform for all generations to enjoy. So, of course, Disney+ got it's own very special day, September 8th, to kick off the D23 Expo, which is Disney's own version of comic-con. D23 is happening right this second until Sunday, September 10th. More on that Mickey madness shortly.
Many "ooohs and aaahhhs" from pure excitement delighted fans during the announcements: new releases, special guests, behind the scenes footage, and featurettes from the Mouse House. If you aren't already a subscriber to Disney+, don't worry, you can hop on Steamboat Willy's...boat too!
GET DISNEY+ FOR $1.99
This was probably the biggest announcement of the day. Even though the streaming giant already comes at a low monthly price at 7.99 a month or the 13.99 month bundle including Hulu and ESPN Plus.
YES! This sounds great, but it comes with a catch - this super low price is just for the first month.
However, that's all you really need to explore what Disney+ has to offer you and everyone in your household, which will mostly likely sway you to keep your membership. Personally, I can't live without it. That sounds drastic, compared to other streaming giants, Disney+ is soaring UP into the sky in a big hot air balloon. At the same time most other streaming services are struggling to engage audiences with any new or exclusive content that they actually wanted. No one asked for 56782545 spin-off series, prequels or from popular cable television series from the 70s, 80s, 90s, and so on. In the current land of streaming, each platform will continue to battle it out behind the scenes for rights to specific content. Except for Disney; they already own everything.
Head to Disney Plus now while the deal is hot and subscribe before September 19th.
NOW STREAMING ONLY ON DISNEY+
When you wish upon a star...
Surprise! The live-action version of Pinocchio is now playing for new generations to enjoy. And also create an unrealistic childhood fear of getting stuck inside a whale. All while hopefully teaching kiddos not to lie. Pinocchio stars Tom Hanks, the beloved actor that can do no wrong, even if he's stuck in a Terminal for days.
