Due to the pandemic and all the projects coming up and running , the inevitable price hike increase for the service has been revealed to occur in March of 2021.

Disney Plus will raise its US subscription price by $1 to $8 a month in the US in March, Disney said Thursday as it unleashed a flood of news about its streaming services at a four-hour event. Disney laid out plans for as many as 20 new Marvel and Star Wars series, promised to let animation fans stream animated fantasy Raya and the Last Dragon the same day it hits theaters (for $30 extra), and revealed a new bundle that packages ad-free Hulu with Disney Plus and ESPN Plus for $19 a month


With Disney Plus' success drawing in new subscribers like gangbusters and with that enormous budget looming, the service is raising prices for the first time since it launched about a year ago. The price of a US subscription is going up $1 to a $8 a month, with the annual plan jumping $10 to $80 a year; both hikes start March 26. In continental Europe, prices are going up by two euros to €9 a month, and it will be making similar price increases in Disney Plus' other markets.

Thankfully they didnt make subbers to pay the price hike starting now but new users starting March 2021 and current subbers who will renew the service next year will need to pay $79.99 for a year and $7.99 per month (for monthly subbers).



I'm currently on the yearly plan - paid $69.99 this year but some people got lucky and got a 3 year contract for $69.99 a year.

Yep. To be quite honest, I would be happy either way, as long as we had more Toy Story.

Hope that they eventually do Toy Story 5.

I wonder how they'll manage to do that considering all the characters are split up :(

Maybe a reboot.

Lmao

That name is so hilarious though.

(I liked Revenge of the Sith but didnt like The Last Jedi especially since half of the movie was useless filler).

There's tons of Star Wars projects, hopefully the TV shows are better like The Mandalorian and not like the Sequel trilogy.

Well, they could reboot it. But at the same time, it's not like they can't reunite them all again. Woody has a fairly good idea where they are, and he could seek them out if need be.

it is coming.



The Democratic Nintendo fan....is that a paradox? I'm fond of one of the more conservative companies in the industry, but I vote Liberally and view myself that way 90% of the time?

I used to watch the cartoon show about Buzz Light-year. Anyone else or am I the only one?
Pretty excited for Lightyear! I hope the evil emperor is referenced often!
