Is ‘Free Guy’ coming to Disney Plus?

“Free Guy” is available to stream on Disney Plus in select regions like Australia and the UK, but a US premiere date has not been announced.

Though the movie is owned by Disney, it started development at 20th Century Fox. Disney acquired 20th Century Fox in 2019, but due to streaming agreements made before the purchase, Variety suggests that “Free Guy” could actually be available on HBO Max before it comes to Disney Plus in the US.

While “Free Guy” hasn’t been confirmed for Disney Plus in the US, multiple new movies and series are being added to the platform on November 12 as part of Disney Plus Day. The most anticipated release is Marvel’s “Shang-Chi and The Legend of The Ten Rings,” which will become available to all subscribers for no additional cost.
