When Is “The Creator” Released?

20th Century Studios, New Regency and Entertainment One are releasing “The Creator” exclusively in cinemas on September 29th 2023.

When Will “The Creator” Be On Disney+?

Currently, no official Disney+ release date has yet been announced.

During the pandemic, Disney was rushing films to its streaming services, including Hulu and Disney+, as quickly as possible, to grow its streaming services, however in 2023, Disney is now prioritising making a profit from its films, so now films stay a little longer in cinemas, before going to digital platforms like Amazon, Apple, Vudu etc to purchase before heading to Disney+ and Hulu.

Based on Disney’s other releases in 2023, including “Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol 3” and “Ant-Man And The Wasp: Quantumania”, took about 90 days to go from a theatrical release to Disney+.  However, “The Little Mermaid” will take over 100 days to go from cinemas to Disney+.  While some of Searchlight Picture’s films, like “Chevalier“, have taken only around 60 days to go from theatrical to streaming.

It’s likely with “The Creator”, that we are likely to see the film arrive on Disney+ after Christmas.  Internationally, all Disney’s new releases are released directly on Disney+, while in the US, previous 20th Century Studios films have generally been added to Hulu, however, since Hulu content will be available within Disney+ in the United States by the end of the year, it won’t really matter as much any more.

Is “The Creator” Coming To Disney+ Premier Access?

Disney has confirmed that following the release of “Jungle Cruise”, it won’t be using Disney+ Premier Access, instead offering selected movies exclusively in cinemas first, before being released on Disney’s streaming services.

What Time Will “The Creator” Be Released On Disney+

Disney+ updates daily at the following times:

  • Pacific Time: 00:00 AM / Midnight
  • Eastern Time: 03:00 AM
  • UK: 08:00 AM
  • Sydney, Australia – 19:00 PM

Sometimes, films can arrive a few minutes later as the servers update. The Disney+ front page usually updates about an hour later.
