Taylor Swift just gave fans an iconic reason to not retire those eras-inspired friendship bracelets. On Feb. 7, the pop singer announced she’s bringing her Eras Tour to streaming platform Disney+. This announcement is an exciting upgrade, as Swifties have been renting the film for $19.89 since it became available to stream in December 2023.

Her tour has been one of many sonic highlights of the past year, so it’s only right for her fans to relive it (or for those who couldn’t get past that notorious Ticketmaster fiasco, experience it for the first time) at home.

Swift announced the update on Instagram — and this latest version of the concert film has some exciting song changes. “This week is truly the best kind of chaos. I’m thrilled to let you know I’ve found a streaming home for The Eras Tour Concert Film, and that home will be @disneyplus,” Swift wrote. “For the first time we’ll be showing the entire concert (including ‘cardigan’, plus 4 additional songs from the acoustic section!!) and I’m calling it, huge shock, ‘Taylor Swift | The Eras Tour (Taylor’s Version)’. Available starting March 15 which is actually very 🔜😆🫶.”

For fans who noticed “Cardigan” was missing in previous versions of the film, this is a major win — however, some of Swifties’ favorite songs are still being kept off the movie. “‘Tis The Damn Season” and “No Body No Crime” are notably absent the movie’s set list — at least, so far.

This announcement is yet another exciting addition to Swift’s tour, which has been extended and revamped with new openers more than 10 times this year. The 1989 singer first announced the tour film on Aug. 31, 2023, encouraging fans to wear their greatest “Eras attire and friendship bracelets.” At the time, AMC Theaters also celebrated the film news on Instagram.

According to a press release, the movie — aptly titled Taylor Swift: The Eras Tour, and released in theaters Oct. 13, 2023is directed by Sam Wrench, a Grammy-nominated director who created concert films for artists such as Billie Eilish, Lizzo, and BTS. This isn’t Swift’s first time transforming her shows into an hours-long film. The singer joined forces with Netflix for her 2018 Reputation tour special, which showed behind-the-scenes moments of her performances.

True to Swift’s penchant for hiding clues in her work, details about the Eras Tour movie are filled with Swiftie-clad Easter eggs. Here’s everything you should know before watching at home.

The Eras Tour Trailer Is A Swiftie Dream

For those who’ve seen clips of Swift’s tour on social media, it’s clear these shows are stunning to look at — mistakes and all. This trailer, which you can watch here, only adds to that consensus, as every inch of the stage is filled with theatrical flare, vibrant lights, and pyrotechnics galore.

You Can Stream It At Home

On Dec. 13, 2023, Swift shared that fans could stream Taylor Swift: The Eras Tour on AppleTV, Prime Video, Google TV, Microsoft, Xfinity, Sky Store, Vudu, and YouTube. Renting the film costs $19.89, a reference to her latest re-release.

Starting March 15, Swifties will be able to stream the film with a Disney+ account, which costs between $7.99 and $13.99, per month, depending on your subscription level.

There Are Changes To The Streamable Version

Although Swifties were excited to stream the Eras Tour at home, some were disappointed by the updated format of the film. When Swift revived three songs (“Wildest Dreams,” “The Archer,” and “Long Live”) from the setlist to add to the extended version of the movie, they were tacked onto the end of the film right before credits began to roll.

In the actual concert, the songs were spread out throughout her set list — something Swifties expected to see in the film. “wait wtf the extended version of eras tour has the extra performances AT THE END?? that’s not how it’s supposed to be,” one fan complained on Twitter.

It’s likely that Taylor Swift | The Eras Tour (Taylor’s Version) will follow the same pattern, with “Cardigan” appearing at the end of the film along with the extra four acoustic songs.
