Disney fans, today is your day. September 8 marks the second annual Disney+ Day, a virtual event dedicated to the company’s streaming service that debuted in 2021. To celebrate, Disney is releasing many exciting titles to its streaming service and offering a great deal for new subscribers.

Let’s start with the streaming premieres and new titles from Disney, Marvel, Pixar, Star Wars, and National Geographic heading to Disney+ today. The headliner is Thor: Love and Thunder, the fourth installment in the Thor series starring Chris Hemsworth, Tessa Thompson, Christian Bale, and Natalie Portman. Hemsworth, Thompson, and Portman filmed a video to celebrate Thor 4‘s arrival on the streaming service with the message that “nothing beats Disney+.”

In addition to Thor, Tom Hanks teams up with Robert Zemeckis once again for the live-action adaptation of Pinocchio. Other titles that are now streaming include Obi-Wan Kenobi: A Jedi’s Return, Cars on the Road, Epic Adventures with Bertie Gregory, She-Hulk episode 4, Dancing with the Stars: The Pros’ Most Memorable Dances, Frozen and Frozen 2 Sing-Alongs, Remembering, Welcome to the Club (a new short from The Simpsons), Growing Up, and Tierra Incógnita.

The only way to watch these titles is to subscribe to Disney+. From now through September 19, new and eligible returning subscribers will get one month of Disney+ for just under $2. That’s a $6 discount compared to the regular price.

In addition to the streaming service perks, Disney is offering special deals to new and existing subscribers on its theme parks, cruise lines, and merchandise. Deals include early entry into Disney World, Disneyland Resort, and Disneyland Paris. Plus, there are holiday offers to stay at select Disney Resort hotels. Disney+ subscribers will also receive access to exclusive merchandise, advantageous cruise line deals, and a 6-month free trial to National Geographic Digital. Finally, select AMC Theaters will offer $5 tickets from September 8-19 on beloved Disney movies. These titles include Encanto, Thor: Ragnarok, Cars, Newsies, and Rogue One: A Star Wars Story.

Disney will go from one celebration to another as the much-anticipated D23 expo begins tomorrow, September 9, and runs through September 11. Make sure to follow Disney+ on Twitter for updated announcements and surprises.

Where to watch NXT Vengeance Day 2024 live stream: date, start time, match card
Logo for NXT Vengeance Day 2024.

NXT kicks off its 2024 Premium Live Event schedule with the 2024 Vengeance Day. From 2001-2011, Vengeance was a WWE pay-per-view featuring the top wrestlers from Raw or SmackDown, depending on the year. The event experienced a hiatus for 10 years before its reincarnation as an NXT show in 2021. Vengeance Day 2024 is the fourth iteration of the NXT brand.

The main event will feature Ilja Dragunov defending his NXT Championship against Trick Williams. Expect "Whoop That Trick Chants" during this match, as fans have rallied behind Williams the last few months. Williams is even over with the WWE audience, as evidenced by the loud pop he received on the January 26 episode of SmackDown. Williams is in a unique situation as he attempts to pull a doubleheader at Vengeance Day. Earlier in the night, Williams will team with Carmelo Hayes to face Baron Corbin and Bron Breakker in the Men's Dusty Rhodes Tag Team Classic Finals.

Everything coming to Disney+ in February 2024
Kamala, Carol, and Monica stand in a field together in The Marvels.

It's February, which means it's time to celebrate that phoniest of holidays, Valentine's Day. Disney+, however, did not get the memo, as their February programming slate has a lack of rom-coms or anything remotely lovey-dovey.

That's a good thing, as the House of Mouse is giving what the fans want: Marvel heroes in colorful spandex, Star Wars battles, and an intriguing miniseries about two of the 20th century's most influential leaders. The big highlight is the premiere of The Marvels, which didn't do too well in theaters last November, but may find new life on steaming.
