Disney Plus Day kicked off with killer promotions for fans of its family of franchises, including Marvel, Star Wars, Pixar, and more. New or returning subscribers, for example, can swipe a subscription for just $2 for a month.
Disney is also partnering with brands like WizKids and Funko for special deals on Disney merch, and the company is unveiled an “ultra-rare” NFT last Friday as well. Throughout the weekend, fans caught surprise screenings of popular films for $5 a pop at more than 200 AMC theaters nationwide. (You won’t know what you’re watching until the movie starts.) A full rundown of its Disney Plus Day promotions can be found right here.
Lastly, Disney partnered with IMAX to upgrade a collection of Marvel movies to IMAX’s expanded aspect ratio format on Disney Plus, which will give viewers up to 26 percent more picture during certain scenes. Thirteen Marvel films will get the upgrade, including Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings and other recent MCU titles like Black Widow.
In addition to all of the promotions, Disney also used the faux-holiday as a chance to tease some of its upcoming streaming series, including the likes of Baymax and a first look image of Hocus Pocus 2.
