Disney+ Will Give Selected Films Premium Access
DisneyPlus, Disney’s own service for their properties, has approached to add a function on their service with premier access before it arrives for all Disney+ subscribers.
It was supposed to be a one-time thing with Mulan, a film that aimed to release in March this year but failed due to the pandemic. The new function will have theatrical releases for a high cost as a standard and will release it beforehand before it’s accessed to the standard platform.
Mulan is expected to stream exclusively on the new service September 4th for 29,99 USD as additional to the cost you pay for the subscription. The Disney CEO Bob Chapek has called it a one-timer but building this kind of platform should also indicate it is for a larger purpose. Mr. Chapek spoke out:
Starting September 4, with Premier Access, you can watch Mulan before it’s available to all Disney+ subscribers. Disney+ will offer Premier Access to Mulan for $29.99 on disneyplus.com and select platforms. Once you have Premier Access to Mulan, you can watch as many times as you want on any platform where Disney+ is available. Your access to Mulan will continue as long as you are an active Disney+ subscriber.
Black Widow, Eternals, and Jungle Cruise are however not expected to have a premium function as Disney and Marvel Studios aims to land in theaters hand on. This premium function could be a standard function on platforms like Disney Plus as theaters have shut down indefinitely and the big companies also need money to handle the finances. Remember, the Mickey Mouse companies haven’t confirmed more films with this function but a lot of things point to that direction.
