Disney Plus Day: when is it and what new features and offers can you expect?
With the annual D23 Expo taking place in California this month, Disney Plus Day lands earlier than its previous anniversary in mid-November, instead taking place on September 8.
Once again, it promises many new and exciting titles in 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 Pinocchio tale, as well as plenty of behind-the-scenes magic from Thor: Love and Thunder and Disney Plus Original Obi-Wan Kenobi. We’d also be predicting the day to promise previews of what’s to come in 2023 and potentially a same-day Disney Plus price saving, if last year’s celebrations go through.
