Streaming video has been a lifeline for parents of young children who don’t have school or summer camp for education and entertainment during long work days. Disney+, which focuses on providing family-friendly programming, moved up the streaming release of some titles, including Frozen II and Onward, to offer more options for its subscribers while they spend extra time at home.

Disney on Tuesday also said it would accelerate the streaming availability of its live-action Mulan remake, releasing the film on Disney+ on Sept. 4 for an additional $29.99 fee.

Believe it or not, Disney+ has only existed in these United States for five months. Doesn't it feel like Disney+ has been here forever, giving us streaming access Which makes their latest benchmark all the more impressive: Across the globe, Disney+ has already surpassed 50 million paid subscribers .

Disney+ is exceeding expectations with Walt Disney Studios reporting 50 million paid subscribers worldwide in less than six months since launch. When the service was about to launch, Disney projected that it would have between 60 -90 million subscribers by the end of 2024.

Disney+ has already passed the low-end of its subscriber goal. The company had originally said it hoped to hit 60 million to 90 million subs by 2024.

Looking across its streaming portfolio, Disney now has 100 million paying subscribers, Chapek said Tuesday, calling it "a significant milestone and a reaffirmation of our [direct-to-consumer strategy], which we view as key to the future growth of our company." Disney-owned Hulu, which is only available in the U.S., currently has 35.5 million subscribers. And ESPN+ has 8.5 million subs.

Disney's success in streaming is leading it to push more aggressively into direct-to-consumer businesses around the world. Chapek announced that the company will launch a new global "general interest" streamer under the Star brand that will feature Disney-owned content. "We want to mirror our successful Disney+ strategy," Chapek said on a call with investors. He explained that the company decided not to use the Hulu brand that exists in the U.S. because that service "has no brand awareness outside of the U.S." and also relies on third-party licensed content that it wouldn't have the rights to stream overseas. Disney plans to launch the new service in 2021. It's expected to disclose more details at an upcoming investor day.
