Disney plans on launching 20 Marvel and Star Wars TV shows - Disney+ Grows To 86.8 Million Global Subscribers

Barely a year after a blockbuster launch in the U.S., Disney+ is now in dozens of global territories and has reached 86.8 million subscribers.

CEO Bob Chapek offered the new number at the start of the company’s four-hour investor presentation, hosted virtually from the company’s Burbank headquarters.

The total is a significant uptick from the 73.7 million as of October 3, a tally the company reported in its fiscal fourth-quarter earnings release last month.

Disney, which unveiled the news as part of its four-hour investor day, didn’t give any detail on the series, but it is likely to include the upcoming Cassian Andor series, which is a prequel of Rogue One from Jared Bush and Tony Gilroy, a new Obi-Wan Kenobi limited series with Ewan McGregor and a female-centric series from Russian Doll co-creator Leslye Headland.
