Disney+: "Black Widow" Soon to be Available as VOD

Unlike competitor HBO Max, though, Disney charges an additional fee

It seems as though Disney+ is currently on a similar path as competitor provider HBO Max. One reason for this is an announcement by Disney, which revealed the release of "Black Widow" and "Cruella" via video-on-demand. The two new releases will be available as VIP titles on the movie company's own streaming service at the same time as the theatrical release. However, users should refrain from getting too excited at this point, because similar to "Mulan," they will have to pay an additional fee, which can quickly add up to 20 euros. "Black Widow" will now be the first Marvel film to be released simultaneously on Disney+ and in theaters. The date has been set for July 9, whereas you can already watch "Cruella" on May 28. On the other hand, you will be able to watch the latest Pixar production "Luca" on Disney+ without paying a VIP fee, starting on June 18, 2021.
