The Disney+ streaming service is celebrating its second birthday anniversary with a Disney Plus Day event on November 12. And to kick off the party early, it has announced an incredible discount for new and returning subscribers.


From now until the end of the week, the House of the Mouse is offering a full month’s access to Disney+ for just £1.99, a saving of 75% off of its usual monthly price.

That’s more than enough time to blitz through all of the shows and movies you’re itching to watch before cancelling the subscription once the 30-day period ends, or if you find yourself hooked at that stage you can keep watching at the price of £7.99 a month.

To celebrate its birthday, Disney+ said all subscribers will on November 12 be able to watch Shang-Chi and Jungle Cruise, as well as the new Home Sweet Home Alone movie, which are normally only available to those with Premier Access.

Besides that, Disney+ is releasing a ton of other new movies and films on the special day, including some Marvel and Star Wars specials. The list includes a special featuring the entire Marvel Cinematic Universe that showcases an “exciting look towards the future” and Olaf Presents, which is a series of shorts from Disney’s Animation Studios that see Frozen’ snowman recount a number of classic Disney tales in his own inimitable style.

Several Disney shorts are also launching on Nov. 12, such as Frozen Fever, the Oscar-winning Feast and Paperman, and the Oscar-nominated Mickey Mouse short Get A Horse! There’s also a Pixar-animated short featuring characters from the Luca movie, called Ciao Alberto, as well as a Simpsons short that pays tribute to Disney+’s marque brands.

Episodes one to five of National Geographics’ The World According to Jeff Goldblum may also be high on subscribers’ watch lists, and there’s a special that looks into the origin and legacy of everyone’s favourite Star Wars bad guy, Boba Fett.

Finally, there’s Dopesick, which is a Star Wars original series starring Michael Keaton.

Disney+ will also expand to South Korea and Taiwan on its birthday, with a Hong Kong service set to launch the following month. In addition, Disney will take the part outside to its theme parks and cruise liners, where it’s promising “photo opportunities, character moments and more”.

Disney vowed it’s going to make Disney+ Day an annual occasion, which means fans of the service can expect more fantastic deals and a galore of special new content each time it celebrates its birthday.

The offer is live now and runs until November 14, so if you’re tempted, be aware you’ll need to sign up soon.

Disney+ has enjoyed rapid growth since its launch two years ago, counting more than 116 million subscribers globally by the end of August.
