If that's the price that's gonna be standard until the theaters are back to normal

True. But that price is per viewing - not per person viewing:
If you are a family of four, it works out to $7.50 per person (that's about 1/2 price compared to a regular movie theater ticket).

If you are viewing with another person ("date night"), then it works out to $15 per person (about the usual movie theater ticket).

Plus there are other "perks" to watching it via streaming at home such as being able to pause/rewind/etc., cheaper concessions, and watching on your schedule - not the movie theater's schedule.

Personally, I will wait until it goes to Redbox. But if someone is the "gotta see it as soon as it is released"-type person, then the Disney+ offering might be a good deal for them.
