Disney+ continues to expand and announced launching in new markets. This fall, we'll see the beloved streaming platform available in Japan in October and in South Korea, Taiwan, and Hong Kong in November. The service will enter the Japanese market by introducing the already-known Star content hub within the Disney Plus streaming service that was launched on February 23, 2021.
