Published: Thursday, 19th March 2020 at 8:07 pm

If you’re a TV buff or film fanatic, then the launch of Disney+ will be absolutely massive. The new streaming service from Walt Disney Studios serves up a mountain of content to subscribers – over 500 movies, and more than 300 series.


From live-action Star Wars series The Mandalorian, to 30 seasons of The Simpsons, plus MCU movies like Avengers: Endgame, new Pixar shorts, a docu-series hosted by Jeff Goldblum, the X-Men saga and much more, there’s a heck of a lot in the Disney+ library.

And, even better, it’s all for a very reasonable £5.99 a month or £59.99 a year.
