Disney+ Day 2021 Is Coming With a Full Schedule of Exciting Releases
It’s hard not to love Disney+. The streaming giant has everything, from vintage Princess movies to the latest Marvel flicks. But does it love us back? As a way to toast the success of the platform and to thank fans for their dedication (and subscriptions), there will be a company-wide celebration on their second anniversary. Disney+ Day 2021 is coming, and the full day’s schedule proves how much there is to be excited for.
The Schedule For Disney+ Day 2021 Is Worth Waiting For
Bob Chapek, the Chief Executive Officer of Disney, shared in a recent release that they’re looking at Disney+ Day to celebrate subscribers across the entire company. This means that we won’t just see a few premieres or trailers drop. Instead, the whole company will have perks for fans and subscribers! As per Disney’s official press release, the streaming service will see all of the following:
The streaming premiere of Marvel Studios’ “Shang-Chi and The Legend of The Ten Rings”
The beloved Disney family-friendly adventure film “Jungle Cruise,” available to all subscribers
The new Disney+ Original movie “Home Sweet Home Alone,” a reimagining of the popular holiday franchise
An all-new original series of shorts from Walt Disney Animation Studios called “Olaf Presents,” which sees Frozen’s beloved snowman retelling several classic Disney tales as only he can
The domestic Disney+ streaming debut of fan favorite shorts from Walt Disney Animation Studios including “Frozen Fever,” Oscar®-winning shorts “Feast” and ”Paperman,” Oscar-nominated Mickey Mouse short, “Get A Horse!” and more
An animated short film “Ciao Alberto” from Pixar, featuring characters from this summer’s animated hit breakout film “Luca”
A new short from The Simpsons that pays tribute to Disney+’s marquee brands
The first five episodes from season 2 of “The World According to Jeff Goldblum” from National Geographic
A special celebrating the origins and legacy of Star Wars’ legendary bounty hunter, Boba Fett
A special celebrating the Marvel Cinematic Universe on Disney+ with an exciting look towards the future
“Dopesick,” an original series starring Michael Keaton, which will be released in international markets as part of the Star general entertainment content offering
Additionally, the Disney+ Day 2021 schedule will include perks at Disney Parks and resorts, along with some fun features on the Disney Cruise Line. The company’s virtual store will also have special offers. So, we’ll get the perfect chance to do some Christmas shopping.
We’ll also see the launch of Disney+ in other countries, including South Korea and Taiwan, on November 12th. On November 16th, Hong Kong will see the streamer’s debut.

Fan Events Are The New Fan Favorite
News of this mostly virtual fan event comes after Netflix, the platform’s biggest competitor, announced a similar party of their own. TUDUM, a star-studded live stream, is bringing celebrations and new content from Netflix onto our small screens. This will take place on September 25th. It’s almost in line with the company’s eleventh streaming anniversary (September 22nd, 2010!)
Could big fan events like Disney+ Day 2021 and its impressive schedule be the next big thing in promoting streaming services? We’re sure to see a boost in the streaming wars. But hey, if we’re getting new content out of it, then we’re more than pleased.
