Here’s everything you can watch on Disney+
Disney+ arrives this week and it couldn’t come at a better time. We all need a bit of escapism right now, and this choice keeps the whole family safe and entertained at home. Perfect!
The first thing that has to be said about Disney+’s new content list is that it is extensive. There’s no question of value for money here, especially if you were planning on streaming some of these films in your newfound downtime anyway. There are hundreds of films from Disney’s catalogue, including all your nostalgic favourites. There’s also Marvel and Pixar hit films, plus content from documentary experts National Geographic. That’s all without even discussing the brand new and exclusive content to the platform.
So, here’s the lowdown on what to expect from Disney+ when it launches in the UK tomorrow (March 24):
We’ve been hearing a lot about The Mandalorian since Disney+ premiered in the US and Canada last November. The good news is the new Star Wars series is worth the hype, and some might argue worth the entire subscription fee.
Disney+’s other originals haven’t caused quite so much excitement, but there’s plenty of interesting things there. For High School Musical fans, there’s a new comedy series about a group of students who want to put on their own production of a show. New docuseries The World According to Jeff Goldblum is also worth a watch, featuring the film star on the road as he explores all manner of different things.
Here’s the full list of exclusive new offerings:
- Lady and the Tramp
- Star Girl
- Timmy Failure
- One Day
- Clone Wars
- Diary of the Future President

A lot of the big films are here. The Avengers series is all here, as is The X-Men. More recent hits such as Tom Holland’s two films as Spiderman seem to be missing though.
