News of a collaboration between Fortnite and Disney+ has been officially announced, with players being offered two free months on the streaming service as a reward for purchasing skins or V-Bucks.
Fortnite Chapter 2: Season 4 has introduced some of the most beloved Marvel superheroes and villains to the game, either as skins or by having their abilities playable in the game. Seeing the likes of Iron Man, Thor and Storm in the Fortnite universe has been a highlight.
Now, Fortnite’s partnership with Disney, who owns both the Marvel and Star Wars IPs, is about to get even stronger with a Disney+ collaboration incoming.

According to Marvel on Twitter, players who purchase V-Bucks or make any real money purchase from the in-game store from Nov 13 until December 31, 2020, will get up to 2 months of Disney+ for free.
If you made any real-money purchases in Fortnite from November 6 after 10 AM ET, you’re still eligible for the promotion as well. Just visit fortnite.com/disneyplus beginning to redeem your subscription.
The collaboration means that fans will be able to stream all their favorite Marvel movies like The Avengers and Guardians of the Galaxy, as well as originals like The Mandalorian and the upcoming Scarlet Witch series WandaVision, for free.
One additional note, if you have already had or used a Disney+ free trial in the past, you will sadly not be eligible. Like Spiderman says “everybody gets one.”
Fortnite fans are hoping for more Disney crossovers
As well as getting Disney+ for free, the promo has players hyped about other potential crossovers between Fortnite and Disney properties. Many are hoping for skins based on Star Wars: The Clone Wars or The Mandalorian characters to appear in the game in future seasons.
Others speculated that there could be even bigger things in the works from Disney and Fortnite’s team-up, with one fan writing: “There better be a Fortnite Disney Plus series in the works.”
With Chapter 2: Season 4 of Fortnite coming to an end soon, prominent leaker iFireMonkey has claimed that an event planned to round off the season will be “the biggest ever” – you can find out more about that here.
