And now, one of the platform’s stars has come out to thank UK viewers for waiting so long for Disney+ to arrive, with Jeff Goldblum (who appears in original documentary series The World According to Jeff Goldblum) giving RadioTimes.com a special message to pay tribute on launch day.
“There must have been a reason cosmically and in the Disney cosmos why they made you wait. But like I say, some things are better for the anticipation.”
There are currently two episodes of Goldblum’s National Geographic-associated documentary available on Disney+ (with more scheduled to arrive every Friday) in a series that sees the Jurassic Park star investigating topics including denim, coffee, swimming pools, sneakers, tattoos and ice cream among others.
Other original series include live-action Star Wars adventure The Mandalorian, kid-friendly animation Forky Asks a Question and movie originals like the new Lady & The Tramp, all of which UK viewers have had to hold on to see for quite a long period.
“You’ve waited, I thank you for waiting if you’ve stuck with us and now you have some interest in unpacking for yourself this show that we’ve made,” Goldblum said.
