Indonesia is set to be the first Southeast Asian country to welcome Disney+, following an announcement from the video streaming service that it will arrive on Sept. 5.

In Indonesia, the service will be launched in collaboration with Indian streaming platform Hotstar, following the same model of the service in India, which launched in April. 

The Indonesia launch was confirmed in a tweet by the service’s new Twitter account.


Are you ready, Indonesia? Start streaming on Sept. 5.

No word on pricing in Indonesia has been announced.

Disney+ currently has over 60 million subscribers in its select markets worldwide just nine months after its launch. The Indonesia launch will mark its first foray into the Southeast Asia market.

The streamer is home to a huge library of Disney property, including movies by Marvel and Pixar studios. Several Disney+ originals are also available, such as the recently released movie adaptation of the Broadway musical Hamilton, which stars Lin-Manuel Miranda.

The hotly anticipated live adaptation of Mulan, which saw its theatrical release delayed worldwide due to the coronavirus outbreak, is set to be released on Disney+ a day before the streamer’s Indonesia launch. However, the movie will be a “premiere access” title that costs an additional US$29.99 to stream.
