The Disney streaming service is finally crossing the pond to the UK this March, and there is plenty of exclusive content to catch up on
It's been a long few months since the US release, but Disney's streaming home for movies and shows from Disney, Pixar, Marvel, Star Wars, National Geographic and more is coming to the UK on Tue 24 Mar. Alongside the entertainment behemoth's impressive backlog of content, Disney+ will also host a growing variety of originals, from films to series and animated shorts.
You can, of course, start by reliving some of your favourite classics, but perhaps the service's best selling point will be the Disney+ Originals. At launch, Disney+ will feature 25 exclusives, so we have selected the ones we are most looking forward to to get you started.
Who hasn't heard of the series featuring a Mandalorian warrior trying to make a living after the fall of the Empire? Jon Favreau's creation has proved to be a hit amongst Star Wars fans already, and the geographical expansion of the Disney+ service means only one thing: more and more people will fall in love with 'The Child' (his official name, but you perhaps know him best as 'Baby Yoda').
The World According to Jeff Goldblum
Want a break from everyday life drama? Who better to follow on a quest searching for the connections that make ordinary things such as sneakers and ice-cream extraordinary than Jeff Goldblum? The American actor's quirky and entertaining demeanour will surely shed new light onto things we formerly believed we knew everything about.
High School Musical: The Musical: The Series
The title might not roll off the tongue, but the generation looking forward to more High School Musical-related content will surely not mind. Set at the school where the original film was shot, this ten-episode scripted series borrows docu-series elements to follow the school's hopefuls as they audition for East High's first production of High School Musical: The Musical. Say it with us: What team? Wildcats!
Forky Asks a Question
Toy Story 4's breakout star searches for answers to life's most important questions, such as 'what is love?', and not so important, like 'what is cheese?', in this collection of ten shorts. Disney and Pixar's most lovable craft project (who is definitely not trash) will be joined by other familiar faces of the franchise in his quest for answers.
