Three months of Disney+ Basic (with advertisements) may be purchased for $1.99 from now until September 20. At the regular price of $7.99 per month, you can save $18 over the period of three months.
From now until then, you may catch “Elemental,” the latest animated Pixar film, when it debuts on Disney+ on September 13; “The Little Mermaid,” a live-action adaptation of the classic tale, premiered on Wednesday; and “Ashoka,” the new Star Wars series, premiered on Disney+ on August 22.
The second season of “I Am Groot,” starring the budding star of “Guardians of the Galaxy,” premieres on September 13, and “Animals Up Close with Bertie Gregory,” also on National Geographic, premieres the same day.
