It seems the world can’t get enough of Taylor Swift — including Disney!
During the company’s first-quarter earnings call of 2024, it was revealed that the movie version of Taylor’s Eras Tour concert will be exclusively streaming on Disney+. But, with such exclusivity comes a hefty price tag — and you won’t believe just how much Disney paid for it!
Heads up, Taylor Swift fans! Disney+ will be the official home of The Eras Tour concert film when it debuts on March 15th. Along with the full concert, an additional four acoustic songs — including “Cardigan” will be part of the release. The streaming service will have exclusive rights to the movie — and Disney paid a hefty price for it. But, how much was it exactly?
According to Forbes, Disney paid a whopping $75 million for the exclusive streaming rights to The Eras Tour movie — that’s about 460,000 Disney World tickets!
Both Netflix and Universal bid on the film, but were ultimately beaten by Disney. Originally debuting in theaters, The Eras Tour grossed more than $261 million at the global box office — making it the highest-earning concert movie of all time.
