Disney Scraps Thursday's Disney+ Launch Event In London Amid Growing Coronavirus Fears

Disney was set to host an event on March 5th in London ahead of the launch of Disney+ in Europe, but the Mouse House has now decided to cancel the gathering amid growing Coronavirus fears. Check it out...

Fans were hoping to get some updates and announcements about the upcoming Disney+ Marvel and Star Wars shows at a press event this Thursday in London, but Disney has now been forced to cancel the industry gathering amid growing concerns over the spread of Coronavirus.

We didn't have any specific details on what was going to be announced, but there's a good chance we would have got confirmed premiere dates for the streaming service's Marvel TV shows such as Loki, WandaVision and The Falcon and The Winter Solider. We might also have received word on some of the as-yet unannounced series we know are currently in the works.

Disney will still promote the Disney+ launch through social media and press notices. The company is also expected to showcase the streaming service to select journalists during a demo in central London on Friday.

Here's the official statement: “Due to a number of media attendee cancellations and increasing concerns at the prospect of traveling internationally at this time, we have decided to cancel our Disney+ launch events scheduled to take place on Thursday and Friday.”
