As the Corona virus pandemic has shuttered cinemas and enforced families to engage themselves totally at home, Disney has been modifying Disney Plus’ role.
Last November Disney launched their online streaming service, Disney Plus, in six countries including the United States, Canada and Australia. And this time Japan is going to get its own new streaming service, Disney Plus, in June 2020.
Disney Plus, the entertainment giant’s online hub for streaming almost everything it produces, is a hit. Disney Plus streams shows and movies from Disney‘s franchises including Star Wars, Marvel and Pixar, and all the family-friendly movies and animation from Disney itself.
At last, Japanese fans will be able to watch the acclaimed Star Wars series, the Mandalorian (hello, Baby Yoda), along with Disney’s upcoming exclusive Marvel TV shows, 5,000 episodes and movies from Disney Channel, 30 seasons of The Simpsons, 250 hours worth of National Geographic, and much more. There are also plenty of original movies, series and documentaries that are exclusive to the Disney Plus app.
Disney confirmed its new service had exceeded 10 million sign-ups only a day after its launch.
