European readers beware: Baby Yoda-mania is coming a week ahead of schedule.
The Western European debut of Disney+ has been pushed up to March 24, 2020, one week ahead of its previously scheduled date, according to Deadline.
On that day, the streaming service will become available to fans in the United Kingdom, Ireland, France, Germany, Italy, Spain, Austria, and Switzerland. Disney also confirmed that pricing will be £5.99/€6.99 (roughly $8 USD) per month, or £59.99/€69.99 (roughly $78 USD) for a year’s subscription. Previously, the service had been announced to premiere on March 31st. No reason for the date change was given.
Disney+ is currently scheduled to roll out in other Western European nations, including Portugal, Belgium, Denmark, Finland, Iceland, Norway, and Sweden, later this summer.
