With the annual D23 Expo taking place in California this month, Disney Plus Day is landing earlier than its previous anniversary spot in mid-November, instead taking place on September 8.
Once again it promises plenty of new and exciting titles across its hubs, including Marvel, Star Wars, Pixar, and National Geographic, as well as enchanting new titles from Disney itself.
Already announced, we can expect a magical live action retelling of Pinocchio, as well as plenty of behind the scenes magic from Thor: Love and Thunder and Disney Plus Original Obi-Wan Kenobi. We’d also predict the day to promise sneak peeks of what’s to come in 2023 and potentially a saving on the Disney Plus price come the day itself, if last year’s celebrations are anything to go by.
Disney Plus Day dateDisney Plus Day date: when does it take place?Two months shy of its three-year anniversary, Disney Plus Day will this year take place on Thursday, September 8.
Unlike Netflix’s Tudum and Warner Bros’ DC Fandome events, Disney Plus Day won’t be live streamed. Instead, fans can keep up to date with reveals via Disney’s official social media channels. Any announcements will be made exclusively on Disney Plus US (opens in new tab), Disney Plus UK (opens in new tab), and Disney Plus Hotstar (opens in new tab) Twitter accounts, as well as the company’s Disney Plus Facebook (opens in new tab) and Instagram (opens in new tab) pages. You can also follow the official Disney Plus TikTok channel (opens in new tab) to check out unique short-form content centered around Disney Plus Day.
Disney Plus Day dealWill there be a Disney Plus Day deal?Currently the best deal in the house is the Disney Plus bundle (if you’re a US subscriber), or signing up for an annual plan and saving 20% otherwise. In the bundle you get Disney Plus as well as Hulu and ESPN Plus, all for the great value of just $13.99 a month (opens in new tab).
Disney Plus has yet to announce any special deal for the day itself, though if last year is anything to go by round two of the event may see a tasty discount.
