It has already become the highest-grossing tour of all time, earning more than $1 billion. The movie was released in theaters on October 13, 2023, and became a box office smash, earning $261.7 million worldwide and similarly became the highest-grossing concert movie of all time, surpassing 2011’s Justin Bieber: Never Say Never.

The Taylor Swift: The Eras Tour Disney+ release is set to go live on March 14 at 6:00 p.m. PT. However, the documentary will have the subtitle (Taylor’s Version) appended to the end rather than using the original title with which it ran in theaters in 2023. While this could make the streaming release seem like it’s something entirely different from the original movie, there is a very simple explanation for this alteration in the title.

The Taylor Swift: The Eras Tour (Taylor’s Version) title is a reference to the star’s recently released re-recordings of her albums. These came about because Swift didn’t own the masters of the songs she wrote for her albums until leaving Big Machine Records in 2018. Because she owns her masters going forward, she has been recording and releasing new versions of her previous albums, so far putting out Taylor’s Version editions of Fearless, Red, Speak Now, and 1989.

This new title for the documentary is more than just an empty reference to the Taylor Swift re-recordings. As the original tour featured a wide variety of guest performers and surprise bonus songs, there was quite a bit of footage that wasn’t included in the theatrical release, which nevertheless ran for 2 hours and 49 minutes. More of these moments will be included in the streaming release, which is why the title references the new versions of albums that Swift has released, utilizing “Taylor’s Version” instead of a more standard term like “Uncut” or “Special Edition.”
