Disney is probably one of the biggest driving factors why children and adults are fascinated by animation. Ever since the late 20s, Disney has been doing its best to contribute to the animation world. But, with the release of Disney+ Tuesday, it’s unclear how much Disney content will be available on other platforms after theaters. Fans are seeing that and subscribing in droves to get their Disney fix.
As of the 13, Disney’s streaming service has already nabbed over 10 million users (myself included). But, with that in mind, there may be a portion of those subscribers who are riding out the seven-day free trial before you have to pay the $6.99 a month (or $69.99 a year) fee. Even if a few here and there leave, though, they will still most likely hold a close number.
Subscribers were even above what was expected of it in the first year. Initially, they totted the service would drive in eight million subscribers by the end of the year. But, lo and behold, they have skyrocketed past the threshold and may have to aim higher this year.
Disney+ launched Tuesday with a wide selection of Disney content available. The likes of Frozen, Toy Story, Lilo and Stitch, Star Wars (including The Mandalorian), old Mickey Mouse cartoons, and more could be enjoyed there. Needless to say, they have plenty of content to look forward to and that’s only the tip of the iceberg as some are locked behind a contract that needs to be fulfilled before being available.
