Disney announces a new date for Disney Plus Day 2022

Disney Plus Day 2022 will be celebrated on a different date than the date on which it was first celebrated in 2021, and for good reason.

Disney is aiming to host a celebration of mammoth proportions, moving the date to coincide with the D23 Expo, the Ultimate Disney Fan Event, to be held at the Anaheim Convention Center not too far from the Disneyland Resort in California.

Earlier this week, Disney finally announced the date of the debut of its live-action take on Pinocchio starring Tom Hanks as Gepetto. The new film directed by Robert Zemeckis will enjoy an exclusive Disney Plus debut–also on September 8th. Pinocchio also stars Cynthia Erivo as the Blue Fairy, Benjamin Evan Ainsworth, Joseph Gordon Levitt, and Luke Evans.

The Disney+ streaming platform first went live on November 12, 2019, debuting–among other brand-new movies and series–Disney’s live-action remake of Lady and the Tramp, PIXAR’s Forky Asks a Question series, Season One of Jon Favreau’s The Mandalorian, and more.

When Disney Plus first debuted, fans could stream the heck out of Disney classics from Walt Disney Animation Studios like Cinderella and Sleeping Beauty, as well as PIXAR favorites, Star Wars films and series, films from the Marvel Cinematic Universe, and award-winning National Geographic series like The World According to Jeff Goldblum for around seven bucks a month.

Though the monthly subscription cost for the platform has increased, so has the platform’s popularity. During The Walt Disney Company‘s most recent earnings call, Disney execs touted its amazing growth during the quarter. The company gained 9 million subscribers during the fiscal second quarter, far exceeding projections.

Last fall, Walt Disney Company CEO Bob Chapek announced the very first Disney Plus Day, to be celebrated on November 12, 2021, the two-year anniversary of the roll-out of the platform. Chapek promised new content on Disney Plus Day, as well as several sneak peeks and trailers for upcoming offerings on the platform.

About Becky Burkett

I'm an enthusiastic writer who finds joy in random things like cold weather, snow, "I Love Lucy," "The Andy Griffith Show," journals full of blank paper, countdowns to Christmas, the month of December, "Toy Story," "Sleeping Beauty," my 4 kids, my 4 shih tsus, Disney Parks history, Imagineering and visiting the parks. I think Walt Disney is the standard against which genius should be measured. I love to write about Disney Parks, Disney history, all things Imagineering and PIXAR. I adore the colors, story and art direction of Disney's "Sleeping Beauty" (Team Make it Blue!), and "Toy Story" is life (minus "Toy Story 4"). I believe Walt Disney was so much more than an entertainment and theme park tycoon; I believe he was a savant with a vision for life and how it could be if happiness and kindness are strived for. I love Biergarten at EPCOT and 1900 Park Fare at Disney's Grand Floridian. You can find me croonin' with the birdies at the Enchanted Tiki Room, chillin' on the PeopleMover or hangin' with Woody and the gang at Toy Story Land. I'm always looking for Imagineers in the parks, and I'd rather meet Joe Rohde and Tony Baxter than anyone in Hollywood! Hey, if you dream it, you really can do it!
