The Walt Disney Company
Why November 12? Well that’s the day Disney+ launched in 2019, making 2021 the two year anniversary of the streaming service. November 12 will also be the launch date of Disney+ in South Korea and Taiwan. On November 16 the streaming service will launch in Hong Kong. During the most recent Disney earnings call, the company announced that the streaming service had a total of 116 million total global subscribers. That number is likely to climb even higher just before or on November 12 when Disney releases high-demand films onto the streaming service.
Both Shang-Chi and the Legend of The Ten Rings and Jungle Cruise are set to be available to all subscribers on Disney+ starting November 12. Other notable titles making its way to Disney+ on the anniversary are a new Disney+ Original movie Home Sweet Home Alone, a new Walt Disney Animation Studios series of shorts called Olaf Presents, a new short film from Pixar called Ciao Alberto with characters from Luca, the second season of The World According to Jeff Goldblum, and more.
Across The Walt Disney Company there will be promotions and experiences for Disney+ subscribers to take part in through a corporate synergy initiative. Disney Parks and Resorts along with Disney Cruise Line will roll out the blue carpet for photo opportunities and character moments. ShopDisney.com will have special offers just on November 12. Disney-owned network shows, series and talent from various networks like ABC and Freeform will also join in the celebration, but Disney has not said in what capacity yet.
“The inaugural Disney+ Day will be a grand-scale celebration of our subscribers across the entire company,” said Bob Chapek, Chief Executive Officer, The Walt Disney Company, in a released statement. “This day of appreciation brings to life our mission to entertain, inform, and inspire fans and families around the globe through the power of unparalleled storytelling, and will become an annual tentpole event to be amplified across our global businesses.”
As Disney fans eagerly await titles like The Book of Boba Fett, the third season of The Mandalorian and Marvel’s Hawkeye, Disney+ Day will only hype them up more to stay engaged with the brand and continue to renew subscriptions for 2022 and beyond.
