Is Disney Plus worth it?

We've got a much longer explanation of why Disney Plus is worth it so we'll keep this short. A subscription gets you access to the Disney back catalogue the big franchises like Star Wars and Marvel as well as newer shows like The Mandalorian, which has already been renewed for season two.

Documentary wise there's The Imagineering Story, sharing the legacy of Walt Disney and a few behind the scenes secrets as well as National Geographic's The Wonderful World of Jeff Goldblum.
