With the annual D23 Expo taking place in California this month, Disney Plus Day is arriving earlier than the previous anniversary venue in mid-November, taking place in 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 charming new titles from Disney itself.
Already announced, we can expect a magical live-action retelling of Pinocchio, as well as lots of behind-the-scenes magic from Thor: Love and Thunder and Disney Plus Original Obi-Wan Kenobi. We’re also anticipating the day to promise a preview of what’s to come in 2023, and potentially a savings on the price of Disney Plus on the day itself, if last year’s celebrations will do.
