Missing Rick and Morty while we wait for season five? Well, Solar Opposites is arriving in the UK to help now that the new Star on Disney Plus section has launched on the platform.


The show comes from one of the minds behind the cult favourite, Justin Roiland alongside Mike McMahan, and while there are similarities, it is different while retaining the same type of humour. It's part of many other shows and movies that have been included as part of the Disney+ Star content, all the way from the complete run of Family Guy to Starship Troopers to Castle.

But what is Solar Opposites about, and when can we watch it here in the UK? Here is all you need to know.

When is the Solar Opposites release date?

Solar Opposites was released on February 23rd on Disney+ Star. It's part of a floodwave of new content that has arrived on Disney's streaming platform - all from Disney's wider creative studios, all targeted at a more mature audience. It's also marked a slight hike in subscription prices, but we're keen to point out that Netflix costs considerably more at £11.99 a month.

How to watch and stream Solar Opposites in the UK

Solar Opposites lives in the Disney+ Star section so just head there and you'll see it lined up and ready to binge.

What is Solar Opposites about?

"Solar Opposites centres around a family of aliens from a better world who must take refuge in middle America. They disagree on whether this is awful or awesome". So expect a lot of fish-out-of-water comedy with the same type of humour that we have come to know and love from Rick and Morty. Look too for a surprising and amusing link to The Simpsons that we won't spoil for you here.

Solar Opposites voice cast

Justin Roiland is picking up some of the voice duties for this one. You'll know his voice from Rick and Morty where he provides the vocals for both the titular characters. Thomas Middleditch (Silicon Valley), Sean Giambrone (The Goldbergs) and Mary Mack round out the main cast.

Will there be Solar Opposites season 2?

Yes! The second season will debut in full in the US on Hulu on March 26th. Given that nobody else in the UK holds the rights to it, it should come to the UK around the same time although nothing has been confirmed on that front yet. Either way though, it's coming!
