It’s time for an update on Disney+! The hype last year was REAL and it was BIG. And when it finally came out on November 12th, and we were all finally introduced to Baby Yoda, the world let out a collective sigh of relief. Ah, finally, I can get an IV drip of Disney straight into my veins. Well, now we’re 90 days into this new Era of Good Feelings, and the honeymoon — the doe-eyed, rose-colored glasses phase — is coming to a close, and we can look at Disney+ with a little more critical eye. So how’s it holding up? Pretty freaking well, actually.
Here’s everything on Disney+ right now:
We’re not going to review Disney+, because … well, it hasn’t changed in the first 3 months, and you can still check out the original review we did, right here. Yeah, they had some technical issues on day one, but honestly, that’s probably just because of HOW MANY PEOPLE signed up for it on day one (that was about 10 million). Things have looked better since then, so tech-wise, things should be smooth sailing. Today, we’re going to have a look at where Disney+ is at with its subscribers, how it’s fitting into the streaming landscape, and whether it’s keeping the promise it made to be the must-have streaming service on the block.
So has Disney kept up its end of the bargain with Disney+? Just based on the “50 million Elvis fans can’t be wrong” argument, we’d have to say that it is. If it weren’t, it wouldn’t be exceeding its subscriber count projections. But if it wants to continue to exceed expectations, it doesn’t have any more vaults to throw open, so it’ll have to count on the new original content to do that. So far so good, but we’ll have to see a lot more Mandalorian-level quality stuff in the not-too-distant future to keep that momentum going.
