Will ‘Aladdin’ Be on Disney Plus?

Sometimes, Princess, you just have to take a risk. That includes subscribing to Disney Plus without confirmation that the live-action Aladdin will be joining the platform. What is including among the day-one library for this streaming platform? Will the 1992 animated version of Aladdin be available for bingeing on Disney Plus? Here’s what we know about this subscription service and what will be available at its launch.

Disney movies released in 2019, including, Captain Marvel and Dumbo, will be available on this streaming platform

Disney’s official streaming platform, Disney Plus, is just a few weeks away. Along with a subscription comes access to content produced by Disney, Pixar, Star Wars, Marvel, and National Geographic. Fans are already excited to see movies created in 2019 from the comfort of their own homes. That includes Marvel’s blockbuster, Captain Marvel and Disney’s live-action adaptation of Dumbo, both of which premiered in March.

But Disney didn’t stop there. In addition to having beloved animated classics, the company will produce television shows exclusive to this streaming platform. That includes series like The Mandalorian, High School Musical: The Musical: The Series, and One Day at Disney. The platform recently announced some of the movies to be available on this platform at its launch date. Unfortunately, that does not include the live-action adaptation of Aladdin, featuring actors like Mena Massoud, Will Smith, and Naomi Scott.

The 2019 version of ‘Aladdin’ is not listed among Disney Plus’ Day-One library

Unfortunately, the 2019 adaptation of Aladdin is not listed among the Day-One movies premiering on the streaming platform. However, there’s good news for live-action Aladdin fans. Although the movie might not be on Disney Plus at its launch date, the film will likely be available for streaming within the next few months. The biggest indication of that is Marvel’s Avengers: Endgame joining the Disney Plus library one month after its official launch date.

According to What’s On Disney Plus, “with Aladdin being released around 4 weeks after Endgame, an early January 2020 release on Disney+ seems likely. But Disney might be tempted to use Aladdin as a new movie for the Christmas period to help pull in subscribers and keep its new subscribers engaged. It would also help shorten the release schedule down to the more traditional six to seven-month window that we’ve been used to on Netflix.”

The 1992 version of Aladdin is listed among other iconic Disney animated films. That includes Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs, The Little Mermaid, Beauty and the Beast, and The Lion King. Disney Plus premieres on Nov. 12, 2019.
