Thor: Love and Thunder – starring Chris Hemsworth and Natalie Portman – will become the latest title to join the Disney Plus library on Disney Plus Day, just two months after premiering in cinemas.

Disney Plus Day will also see the arrival of both Frozen and Frozen 2 Sing-Alongs, as well as a new short from The Simpsons titled Welcome to the Club.

Tierra Incognita, an original series produced in Latin America, will also land on the streamer and follows a teenager investigating his parents' mysterious disappearance eight years prior.
