The animated Clone Wars - which is airing its final season - will launch with the first two episodes with two episodes released every Friday.
Recently, in February 2020, Disney announced that its subscription-based streaming service Disney Plus, which was launched in the United States in November past year, will arrive in India on March 29 through its Hotstar app.
Disney+ will launch later than intended in one of the biggest markets in the world as coronavirus continues to wreak havoc on the entertainment industry.
However, as the company was looking at capitalising on the popularity of IPL, the suspension of the league has put a spanner in the works.
Robert Iger, then chairman and CEO of Disney, had given March 29 as the official launch date of Disney+ in India. The streaming subscription in India has been priced at 299 rupees ($4.05) monthly or 999 rupees ($13.55) for a yr.
Mint had earlier reported that Hotstar plans to localise Disney+ movies and shows by dubbing or adding subtitles in Indian languages, including Hindi, Tamil and Telugu.
While the pricing is yet to be finalised, Iger said that the company will offer two categories.
Meanwhile, Hotstar, at its peak, reported more than 100 million daily active users and 300 million monthly active users previous year. "One will be more premium in nature that will include the entire library, so with the original programming and the other one will be more basic that will have the library and not the original programming". The scheduled launch of the streaming service has been paused and the new date is yet to be revealed.
The streaming service also faces competition with domestic players such as ALTBalaji, Zee5, Eros Now, Sony Liv, and Voot.
