Disney Plus shifts The Mandalorian release schedule following Loki success.

The Mandalorian

Get your Wednesday hashtags ready, because Disney+ is shifting The Mandalorian to a Wednesday release date following the success of Loki.

 The Hollywood Reporter has confirmed that the streamer’s original series will now all air on Wednesday, including new episodes of The Mandalorian, which has previously been released on Fridays, and the upcoming Star Wars series The Book of Boba Fett.

The shift comes following the success of Loki as well as Disney Plus increasing its original content output. While TV shows will come on Wednesdays, new original movies will still be released on Fridays. As a result, movies and shows will no longer compete with each other for subscribers’ attention, plus films that release in cinemas on Friday won’t be affected by people heading home to stream shows.

The Disney Plus change will come into effect in July, which means the upcoming Monsters, Inc. spin-off Monsters at Work (July 2 to July 7) and live-action comedy Turner & Hooch (July 16 to July 21) have changed release dates.
