Disney+ Reaches 100 Million Subscribers Worldwide



In only 16 months, the entertainment giant Walt Disney Company, is celebrating the milestone achievement of their streaming service, Disney+ which was announced during their annual meeting of shareholders.

“The enormous success of Disney+ —which has now surpassed 100 million subscribers—has inspired us to be even more ambitious, and to significantly increase our investment in the development of high-quality content,” Mr. Chapek said. “In fact, we set a target of 100+ new titles per year, and this includes Disney Animation, Disney Live Action, Marvel, Star Wars, and National Geographic. Our direct-to-consumer business is the Company’s top priority, and our robust pipeline of content will continue to fuel its growth.”

The streaming services launched on November 2019 around the world with exclusive titles in Disney classics, Marvel and of course the saga of Star Wars.

Although fans of Disney were excited to see their favorite animated movies, it was the announcement of The Mandalorian and The Clone Wars is what attracted the Star Wars fandom! As well as a “one stop” library for everything else Star Wars, including the films.

With the “Rancor” sized success of The Mandalorian over 2 seasons and the announcements of a third, the future of Star Wars has never been brighter – especially with last year’s announcement of several NEW Star Wars themed series in the works. These titles include Obi Wan Kenobi, Andor, Ahsoka, Rangers of the New Republic, Star Wars: The Bad Batch, A Droid Story, Lando, Rogue Squadron, The Acolyte and Lando! THIS IS THE WAY!
