With cinemas around the world being closed down to the pandemic, last year, Disney launched a brand new premium video on demand program called Disney+ Premier Access, which would be a way of them releasing their biggest new films to homes at an additional charge through Disney+.

The first film to be released on Disney+ Premier Access was “Mulan” and earlier this year, Disney released “Raya and the Last Dragon” in both cinemas and on Disney+ Premier Access.  This Friday, Disney will be releasing “Cruella” on Disney+ Premier Access and in cinemas.

Today, Disney has released a video explaining how Premier Access to Disney+ subscribers, because along with “Cruella”, Disney has plans to continue to use its Premier Access program with “Jungle Cruise” and “Black Widow”, which will be released in July.

Check out the video below:

Premier Access gives you the chance to watch some of our latest cinema movie releases from the comfort of your sofa before they’re made available to all Disney+ subscribers. If a film is offered through Premier Access, you can order it for an additional fee and watch it again as many times as you’d like, as long as you’re a Disney+ subscriber.

What do I need to order Premier Access?

Before you order Premier Access to a film, you’ll need to make sure you have the following:

  • An active Disney+ subscription
  • A Disney+ supported device
  • A valid form of payment*

How do I pre-order or order Premier Access?

If you’re interested in getting Premier Access to a film on Disney+ (when available), please note that there is an additional fee on top of the cost of a standard Disney+ subscription. Movies offered through Premier Access will be added to the Disney+ collection (free of charge) at a later date.

To order Premier Access:

  1. Log into disneyplus.com
  2. Select the Premier Access title on the home screen or by searching
  3. Select PREORDER (if this is available) or UNLOCK NOW
  4. Confirm the order using your stored payment information, a new payment method, or a third-party in-app purchase
  5. Once your payment is accepted, you’ll return to the main screen
  6. Select PLAY to begin streaming
    • You can begin streaming pre-ordered titles once they’re available with Premier Access


Should Premier Access be a success or people don’t return to cinemas in the same numbers as before the pandemic, Disney may continue to use Disney+ Premier Access to duel release some of its titles.

Are you going to be using Disney+ Premier Access this summer?
