During Disney’s quarterly financial results call, Disney’s CEO Bob Iger gave an update on the international rollout of Disney+ around the world.
Disney+ will launch in the following regions:
Japan – Mid-October
Taiwan – Mid-November
Hong Kong – Mid-November
South Korea – Mid-November
Central/Eastern Europe – Summer 2022
Middle East – Summer 2022
South Africa – Summer 2022
This is obviously a big disappointment to those Disney fans in Central and Eastern Europe, who were originally supposed to get Disney+ this year.
This is the first time Disney has announced any plans for the Middle East or South Africa. Expect more details on this launch to come next year.
Disney+ hit 116 million subscribers in July, so launching in these countries will continue to push those subscriber numbers up.
