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?
