Disney Plus UK announces full content lineup ahead of launch

Disney Plus UK has gone and revealed its entire content lineup ahead of its March 24th launch date, announcing a library of more than 500 films and 350 TV series, including 26 originals.


Viewers are encouraged to pre-order a subscription to Disney Plus UK ahead of launch for the discounted price of £49.99 per year, and can even get early access if they use a VPN. Once the service launches, Disney will offer two pricing options, either £5.99 for a month of access, or £59.99 for a full year.

And the lineup should surely be enough to persuade some to sign up now.

For example the Marvel comics universe will help to serve up more than 30 movies and 50 series, with big names including Black Panther, Avengers: Endgame, Captain Marvel and Guardians of the Galaxy available at launch.

There will also be a healthy serving of content for those nostalgic about Disney’s classics with Cinderella and The Little Mermaid, for example. And animation lovers will surely appreciate the entire collection of 30 seasons of The Simpsons, also available to stream at launch. Season 31, which kicked off in the U.S. in February, will be available by November, Disney Plus UK said.

Another of Disney's biggest brands, Star Wars, will be available to watch in it entirety with all eight films and Star Wars: Episode IX: The Rise of Skywalker due to launch “at a later date”. But at least the smash hit series The Mandalorian, will be available from day one.

Other titles worth a mention include the 20 Pixar movies Disney has promised, including Finding Nemo and Toy Story 4. They’ll be joined by Pixar in Real Life, a short live-action series that takes Pixar’s most popular characters from their pixelated world and drops them into a real-world scenario.

And lest we forget Disney's original shows, with The Mandalorian being joined by new titles including Clone Wars, Short Circuit, The World According to Jeff Goldblum, and High School Musical: The Musical: The Series.

We can fully appreciate that Disney Plus UK won’t be for everyone, but for anyone who does have a fascination for Disney content, the service sounds like a very nice little add-on to Netflix and Amazon Prime Video, at the least.
