The Disney + streaming service debuted in November last year in the United States and was gradually released to other international markets. But one of the biggest markets in the sector is off the list and, although we had a forecast of when the platform would arrive in Latin America, there was no confirmation from the company itself. This Thursday (13), Disney sent an official statement with the announcement of Disney + in Brazil and in the region.

Regarding prices, Disney has been offering prices below US $ 9 and US $ 8 per month charged by Netflix and Amazon Prime Video out there, at US $ 7. Since the idea is to keep the track competitive with Netflix around here, Disney + should arrive at a price close to R $ 21.90 per month from the competitor's subscription. Last week, the local Android app revealed that this figure should be R $ 28.99 per month or R $ 294.90 per year with two months free.

However, the official price has not yet been confirmed by Casa do Mickey.
