During the latest Walt Disney Companies quarterly financial investors earning call, Disney’s CEO Bob Chapek has reconfirmed the companies commitment to the growth of Disney+.

Disney+ is currently available in 61 countries across North America, Europe, Asia/Pacific, and Latin America, with the streaming service set to launch in Taiwan, South Korea and Hong Kong later this month.

Bob Chapek has confirmed that Disney+ will be available in over 120 countries by fiscal 2023, which means they are planning to launch in another 50 countries worldwide in the next two years, including South Africa, Eastern Europe, and the Middle East.

“The service is now available throughout Japan, and we’re thrilled to be launching it this Friday on Disney Plus Day in South Korea and Taiwan and in Hong Kong on Nov. 16.  In just two short years, we are now in over 60 countries and more than 20 languages, and next year we plan to bring Disney Plus to consumers in 50-plus additional countries, including in Central, Eastern Europe, the Middle East and South Africa. Our goal is to more than double the number of countries that we’re currently in to over 160 by fiscal year 2023.”

Unfortunately, no details were announced on what the next wave of countries getting Disney+ will be.

To go along with this massive expansion of Disney+, more than 340 local originals are currently in development, and they are planning on making more.

Disney is still on target to hit their targets of achieving over 200 million subscribers by 2024.
