Disney Plus

Disney was looking for a way to reach more people with more content. On Tuesday, November 12, Disney announced the best thing to ever come to be: Disney Plus. Disney Plus has every Disney movie: from the old ones made in the early 1900s to the most current movies made. There are thousands of shows and movies that are easy to access on Disney Plus.When Disney Plus was announced, there was excitement and anticipation for it to be released. For many people, there are movies and TV shows that were aired during their childhood. All the memories of waking up at dawn to get the television to watch the Suite Life of Zack And Cody or Hannah Montana, came flooding back when Disney Plus was released. For the children that grew up in the 2000s and early 2010s, Disney Plus makes us feel nostalgic. The old Disney movies that many of us had to wait for it to come out on DVD to be able to watch it continuously are now at our fingertips. With just a few taps on our phones or televisions, we can pull up our most favorite and memorable movie whenever we want. Disney Plus does not just have the original Disney movies; there are Marvel, Pixar,and Star Wars Movies. There are also 2oth Century Fox shows and even the National Geographic shows.

Disney Plus’s prices are a dramatic difference compared to other streaming outlets like Netflix and Hulu. Disney Plus is only $7.oo per month! That such a low price for the thousands of movies that you have access to. The Walt Disney Company has stated that its goal is to compete with Netflix right away at launch. Disney Plus has only been out for a little over a week and there is already ten million subscribers. To ten million people, paying $7.oo per month is worth it. Many people would get frustrated or annoyed that Netflix or Hulu did not have the Disney movie that they were wanting to watch. But now, they have access to every Disney movie. Disney Plus could possibly be the best thing to have come out all year.  It is hard to decide what I am more excited about; all the movies from the vault that I watched when I was younger or the new ones that I have recently came out. But I am so excited to see all the movies and watch all the shows I love.
