Disney+ Day comes on the heels of the highly anticipated D23 Expo on September 9-11 in Anaheim, California. Expect casting announcements, trailers, and photos to be announced at D23. For those attending D23, a special screening of Pinocchio, the new live-action film by Robert Zemeckis starring Tom Hanks as Geppetto, will be offered to subscribers on September 8 at the Hilton Anaheim.
In addition to the introductory offer, Disney announced that many new and existing titles will premiere on the streaming service on Disney+ Day. Thor: Love and Thunder, Obi-Wan Kenobi: A Jedi’s Return, Cars on the Road, and the aforementioned Pinocchio will all be available to stream on Disney+ Day.
As the company celebrates Disney+ Day and D23, the Walt Disney Company is already gearing up for the 100th anniversary in 2023.
