Rumor: Disney To Offer Two Month Disney Plus Free Trial Offer Via Fortnite?

0

Hollywood has been banking on video games more and more. We saw Disney go to Fornite to try and promote ‘Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker’ last year. Politicians tried using video games to reach more people and appear ‘relatable.” It’s no surprise Disney is going back to the video game well, to possibly try and bring up their Disney Plus numbers. Nor is it a surprise it comes right after a lot of the Verizon free Disney+ subscriptions have run out.

This rumor comes from What’s On Disney Plus, according to some tweets it appears data miners have uncovered  some code on Fortnite that indicates Disney+ is going to team up with the game to offer a two month free trial of the streaming service. After it’s launched the code seems to indicate that it will run through December.

According to data miners who looked into the code from the latest update to the massively popular video game, Fortnite, Disney is going to be teaming up with the game to offer a free 2 month trial of Disney+.

This promotion will be running until the end of December and can be made available to players when spending real money on transactions through the Fornite store, such as buying V-Bucks, packs or player skins.

This information comes from VastBlast Fortnite Leaks on Twitter:

 

Of course this is just a rumor and hasn’t been officially announced by either Disney or Epic Games, but given that Disney has used Fortnite for promotions in the past, it makes sense. Plus, now that they’ve announced their shift in direction to “Direct-to-consumer” they need to start bringing the numbers for the investors. Offering the 2-month free subscription would help to boost the numbers and could potentially lead to more subscribers long term.

Disney has been a big part of my life for years--from family trips to WDW to growing up on Disney classics, TV, and movies. Prior to Pirates and Princesses I successfully ran social media and websites since 2010. I've also been a public speaker and presenter since 2007. I'm the co-host for the YouTube channel Clownfish TV as well as the podcast/ Youtube Pirates and Princesses (PNP) channel. Former contributor, online personality and acting social media manager at The Kingdom Insider (which we built from the ground up and ran from 1997-2019 --Thom didn't quit FYI) Pirates and Princesses was started by my husband and I several years ago. We loved Disney and wanted to honestly cover all aspects from pop-culture to the parks from a consumer focused stance. Living OUR happily ever after getting to do what we love with our two kids! Creating fun content and building new things. Certified art teacher, and mom. Opinions are all mine.
