That new subscriber figure is as of Dec. 2, CEO Bob Chapek said. During its most recent quarterly-earnings, Disney+ had more than 73 million subscribers globally as of Sept. 30.

The company had already reached the projected 60-90 million subscribers it expected to have by 2024. It has now reached the top end of that projection.

Disney+ debuted Nov. 12, 2019 with 10 million sign-ups on its first day, launching with originals including “The Mandalorian,” a “High School Musical” TV series and a live-action “Lady and the Tramp” film.

The company expects to roll out over the next few years 10 different Marvel series, including the upcoming “WandaVision,” which debuts on Jan. 15; 10 more “Star Wars” series; and 15 Pixar feature films.

Approximately 30% of Disney+ subscribers come via its integration within India’s Hotstar.
