While the streaming service will be available for US customers from 12th November, UK viewers will need to wait until after Christmas, when Disney+ will be made available from 31st March, Disney CEO Bob Iger confirmed.

The same goes for customers in Germany, France, Italy, and Spain, while the release dates for further international markets will be “announced soon”.

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.
