We finally know when Disney+ is coming to UK screens.
The much-anticipated streaming service has been locked down to arrive in the US this month, but the launch date in other territories had been kept rather mysterious.
Disney+ will not only include a huge number of Disney’s own back catalogue but also a whole slate of original content, including Star Wars live-action television series The Mandalorian, starring Narcos star Pedro Pascal in the title role as a bounty hunter active after the events of Return of the Jedi
The Marvel Cinematic Universe will also be getting a serious look-in as well, with multiple series confirmed to be set in the world of the Avengers, with series for The Falcon and the Winter Soldier, WandaVision, Loki, and She-Hulk, to name just a few.
But when does Disney+ arrive in UK shores?
Disney+ UK launch date
Disney+ will launch in the UK on March 31, 2020.
However, the announcement was accompanied by a warning: not all the content in Europe will be the same.
Disney tweeted the reveal with a trailer saying: ” @DisneyPlus will be available in the United Kingdom, Germany, France, Italy, Spain (and more to be announced soon) starting on March 31. Please note: Titles may vary by territory. #DisneyPlus ”
This is likely due to the fact that in the UK and other territories, there are currently deals in place for Sky Cinema and NOW TV to air and stream some Disney titles, so some of your favourites will still be appearing on there and in other places.
Regardless, the amount of content that now falls under Disney is huge.
In addition to their own back catalogue of films and television series, they also now own all the content from under Fox entertainment, meaning we will be able to enjoy classic series such as The Simpsons and 24.
Disney+ launches on November 12, 2019 in the US, and arrives in the UK on March 31, 2020.
