The Force is Strong with DISNEY+ as Subscriber Count has Exceeded 50 Million!



In only 5 months, the streaming service Disney+ has achieved the incredible – gaining over 50 million subscribers.

Disney+ has brought so much enjoyment to my family and with the subscribers count, it has been for families in over 12 countries around the world. It is also a great platform for Star Wars fans, not only with for collection of classic Star Wars films and animation but for the continued development of Star Wars title such as the hit series, “The Mandalorian”, “The Clone Wars”, and the upcoming series’ “Kenobi” and the Cassian Andor series.

From the official press release:

Continuing to delight consumers around the world, Disney+ has now achieved another new milestone, with 50 million paid subscribers globally within five months after its U.S. launch.

“We’re truly humbled that Disney+ is resonating with millions around the globe, and believe this bodes well for our continued expansion throughout Western Europe and into Japan and all of Latin America later this year,” said Kevin Mayer, Chairman of Walt Disney Direct-to-Consumer & International. “Great storytelling inspires and uplifts, and we are in the fortunate position of being able to deliver a vast array of great entertainment rooted in joy and optimism on Disney+.”

In the past two weeks, Disney+ rolled out in eight Western European counties including the UK, Ireland, France, Germany, Italy, Spain, Austria, and Switzerland. Additionally, Disney+ became available last week in India, where it is offered in conjunction with the existing Hotstar service, and already accounts for approximately eight million of Disney+’s 50 million paid subscribers.

Disney+ has been incredibly helpful especially in this time of “social isolation” in providing a distraction from negativity and news overload as well as a fun time to come together as a family. I look forward to the future of Disney+, especially the future of Star Wars on the platform.
