Amid what must have been an especially tough bidding war, Disney+ was recently named the winner and will soon exclusively stream Taylor Swift’s concert film, Taylor Swift: The Eras Tour. The blockbuster movie is headed to the platform next month, but it didn’t come cheap. In fact, the media giant had to pay very handsomely to continue to be in business with the hottest star in music today.
According to a new report by Puck News, Disney has agreed to pay Swift $75 million for the rights to stream Taylor Swift: The Eras Tour. The article states that the entertainment giant outbid competitors like Netflix NFLX and Universal, which were also hoping to claim the movie.
Taylor Swift: The Eras Tour will arrive on Disney+ on March 15. The movie that will be streamable will be longer than the one shown in cinemas around the world in the latter half of 2023, which makes it that much more exciting–and expensive.
When the singer announced the news earlier this week on Instagram, she thrilled fans by sharing that Taylor Swift: The Eras Tour—now titled Taylor Swift: The Eras Tour (Taylor’s Version)—will now feature five songs no one got to see in theaters. She only revealed one of them, “Cardigan,” the lead single from her Folklore album. The other four come from a special section in each one of her shows that saw her play a tune just once, but which ones will be included in the Final Cut remains a mystery.
Taylor Swift: The Eras Tour is headed to Disney+ only a few weeks after leaving movie theaters. The film premiered in mid-October 2023, and it was a box office win from the moment it arrived–actually, since long before that. The title earned tens of millions in sales ahead of its premiere, with fans snapping up early tickets.
When all was said and done, Taylor Swift: The Eras Tour made history at the box office. The movie earned more than $261 million globally, making it the top-grossing concert film of all time. Swift likely made many millions more after that when it was available to rent–but not buy.
A representative for Disney has not responded when asked for comment on this report. This article will be updated if that changes.
