There is a whole new world of Disney content to enjoy on the excellent Disney Plus streaming service, which launched in the UK in March 2020 and selected European markets since its debut in the US and Canada last November.
And (shame, and because what else is there to do eventually?) We glued to this service as it appeared on our tally boxes.
If you’re a fellow mouseketeer and subscriber, and don’t know where to start in Disney, Pixar, Marvel, Star Wars, and the National Geographic catalog, or maybe you’re wondering what’s available in 4K, HDR10, Dolby Vision, Dolby Atmos , We have the answer.
We’ve worked hard to recommend watching the best movies and TV shows from Star Plus on Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker to Avengers: The Rivis, Skywalker, The Mandalorian to the Simpsons, and of course the classic Disney movies. Our pick.
You’re welcome, Marvel Cinematic Universe … though not what you were expecting. This year, Disney is pulling back the curtain on WandaVision, a six-part series by Jack Sheaffer (The Hustle, Black Widow) that presents a Marvel story in the style of the classic ’50s and’ 60s TV sitcom in which it Parody does. Think of the Dick Van Dyke Show and I Love Lucy, which are obvious influences.
Entertaining and downright charming Disney original Marvel comics characters Wanda Maximoff (Elizabeth Olsen) and Visions (Paul Bettany) live in an idyllic suburban community from which they hide their superpowers, but that’s not the case for everyone … the pair Or indeed the audience.
Anyone who is standing in a queue at the TKTS booth in London’s Leicester Square or New York’s Time Square, or has entered the ticket lottery, or has lost several hours trying to get desperate for online booking, will know that Hamilton has been the hottest theater ticket in the city since 2015.
And now the highly anticipated filmed version of the smash-hit musical, from July 3, is available exclusively on Disney +.
No queuing or profuse sweating required; Just launch the application on your device and you go to the music, the American founding father of Lin-Manuel Miranda!
When the world first came to know that Disney was about to get its own video streaming service in late 2017, anticipation began at home for this new live-action Star Wars television series. Now, two years later, we can now watch the entire series!
Set between the fall of the empire and the arrival of the first order, John Favreau’s style-hazy Mandalorian follows a lonely bounty hunter operating in the outer reaches of the galaxy far to the right of the Republic of New York.
Expect high-octane action, well-placed humor and wonderfully imaginative creatures (we love you, baby Yoda). Season two is now available in its entirety and season three is already in production!
The family animation film Soul was another Disney big-hitter that left theaters, but instead of joining the Mulan remake as payment for a Disney premiere access release, it hit the Disney + streaming service free of charge in December . And want a ‘freebie’.
A savory and heartwarming, it follows a musician and school band teacher who has lost his passion for music and is moved to another realm so that it can be rediscovered with the help of an infant soul. Ensues is a moving and reflective story full of imagination and underlined by a powerful message – and a jazz soundtrack that helps convey that it’s simply amazing.
No one speculated on Twitter, resenting that the Simpsons could not be a part, and Disney plus the UK’s parcel rights restriction might well think the world was about to end.
Thankfully, everyone’s favorite animated sitcom is actually on the service – all 600+ beloved episodes – which are 30 seasons – of it. The season is due to hit Disney Plus on November 31.
Not for the faint-hearted, this nail-biting national geographic documentary follows rock climber Alex Honnold, who was the first to successfully solo climb the 3000-foot-high El Capitan of Yosemite National Park. Honnold’s fearless, supernatural quest deserves a hard time – and it is found in this entertaining, Oscar-winning documentary.
It transcends the enormity of the work itself to offer an intimate, personal exploration into his passion and personality. The bus is breathtaking.
