Disney+ streaming service UK launch date confirmed

Disney's streaming service, which will include the likes of Star Wars, Marvel, Pixar and National Geographic, is hitting the UK on 31 March. The service's biggest launch will be The Mandalorian, Jon Favreau's TV series set in the Star Wars universe. Disney, which will rival services including Apple TV+, Netflix, Amazon Prime and the upcoming Britbox, will feature many staples from its own back catalogue, including Snow White and the Seven Dwarves, Pinocchio, Dumbo and Bambi. According to Tech Radar, just seven of the 23 hugely successful Marvel films will be initially available to watch, partly due to rights issues and also because "It's possible that Disney doesn't want to make its entire Marvel movie catalogue available right away - there are DVD and Blu-ray sales to maintain after all". Disney+ will be hosting Marvel TV series including Loki, starring Tom Hiddleston, and The Falcon and The Winter Soldier, starring Anthony Mackie and Sebastian Stan, although they're not expected to hit screens until at least next year and beyond.
