A sequel of sorts to Love, Simon, the delightful 2018 movie, Love, Victor is now available on Disney+ thanks to the launch of Star on Disney Plus.
The roll-out of Star accounts for the biggest library update to the streamer yet and as well as Love Victor, there are many others shows and movies coming as part of the Disney+ Star content on the way from the complete run of Family Guy to Con Air to Solar Opposites.
But what is Love, Victor about? And when can we watch it here in the UK? Here’s all you need to know.
When is Love, Victor’s release date?
Love, Victor was released on February 23rd, as part of the launch of Star on Disney+. Luckily, we won’t have to wait for weekly new episodes of this show as all ten are set to drop on the same day, so we can watch the lot!
How to watch Love, Victor on Disney+
The series is now on Star (which forms part of Disney+). It will be in its own section so just head there via Disney+, and you’ll see Love, Victor ready to watch.
Love, Simon is not part of the launch line-up but considering it is on Hulu US, we expect it to make its way across the Atlantic soon. In the meantime, you can buy the DVD via Amazon.
What is Love, Victor about?
Returning to the Creekwood High setting of Love Simon, we now follow Victor who has a journey of self-discovery of his own to embark on. Struggling with his sexual identity, he reaches out to Simon who helps him to navigate his way through High School.
Love, Victor cast
Michael Cimino (Annabelle Comes Home) heads up the cast as Victor. He is joined by the likes of Rachel Hilson, Anthony Turpel, Bebe Wood, Mason Gooding and Ana Ortiz (Ugly Betty – also included in Disney+ Star). Nick Robinson (Jurassic World) also reprises his role as Simon in episode eight but features throughout via voiceover.
Love, Victor soundtrack
Music features prominently in the show and you’ll definitely hear some artists and tracks you know, such as “Electricity” by Silk City, Dua Lipa and “If I Can’t Have You” by Shawn Mendes, as well as some lesser-known ones that could well become favourites including “Boys Will Be Boys” by Arre! Arre!.
