The Walt Disney Company hosted a shareholders meeting today, which means LOTS of Disney news!
They released updates on the opening date of Remy’s Ratatouille Adventure, when we can start stuffing our face with Crepes in EPCOT, and more. These announcements have us feeling excited about the year to come. But, it wouldn’t be a full update if we didn’t hear something about Disney+, and today we got another update on how the streaming service’s subscriptions are growing.
Let’s do a quick recap, shall we? A little less than one year ago, Disney+ surpassed 50 million subscribers in April 2020. That number continued to grow and reach 86.8 million subscribers during Disney’s Investor’s Day Conference held back in December 2020. THEN, we got another update in January shortly after Disney released the new animated movie Soul directly onto the platform and Disney+ had reached 94.9 million subscribers. And, they’re not done growing yet.
Today, the CEO of the Walt Disney Company, Bob Chapek, shared that they have surpassed 100 million Disney+ subscribers.
Disney had originally aimed to reach 60-90 million subscribers by 2024 and the success they have had in one year alone has prompted even more ambitious goals. They are now aiming to release 100+ new titles per year to the streaming service. That means we can expect even more Marvel, Star Wars, Disney animation, National Geographic, and live-action remakes to be announced every year.
