    As we first reported here, Disney was due to host a European launch event for Disney Plus in London later this week. Sadly this event has now been cancelled due to growing fears over the coronavirus.



    Today The Hollywood Reporter has confirmed that the event, which was set to include key executives from both Lucasfilm and Marvel Studios, will no longer go ahead. A spokesperson for Disney told THR:

    The launch event was originally planned to consist of a special evening event on Thursday followed by a press conference and panels on Friday, with journalists from all across Europe invited to attend. In place of the launch event Disney will now hold a press briefing via webcast next week, with UK journalists able to access a Disney Plus lounge for product demonstrations.



    Whilst this decision is disappointing, it is understandable as countries worldwide continue to do whatever they can to contain the spread of the Covid-19.



    The launch of Disney Plus itself is unaffected, with the streaming platform going live in the UK and select European territories on March 24 as planned.

    To be honest, that is the right thing to do. Disney+ will still be launched so it doesn't matter really if there is a presentation or not.

    It's true...I was just thinking about the two sets of tickets my son and I bought last year, and thought "Oh WELL!!"

    We'll miss out on all of that glorious merchandise, but the potential alternative is the deal breaker, so.....

    If it's that bad by August, they may cancel it... they've set a precedent by canceling the + event.
