The new streaming service already boasts an impressive back catalogue of content, ranging from classic films like Mary Poppins, the Toy Story franchise and Frozen to Fox’s The Simpsons. However, Disney has also lined up some seriously exciting TV series and films to mark their new platform and mount their defence against other big, on-demand platforms like Netflix.
In addition to live-action Lady and the Tramp remake, Disney+ will boast a roster of exclusive new Marvel TV series, including The Falcon and the Winter Soldier, WandaVision, and Tom Hiddleston one-off series Loki, following the version of Loki that stole the Space Stone in 2012 during the events of Avengers: Endgame.
Disney+ launches on 31st March 2020 in the UK
