Disney Plus UK is nearly here in the UK, landing next Tuesday, March 24 after a long wait. Until March 23, pre-ordering a year’s subscription of the service cuts the price down to £49.99 from £59.99. At launch, the new streaming service reverts to its normal yearly price, and you’ll be able to grab it for £5.99 per month if you don’t want to commit for a year.
The good news is, you can already make a fairly informed decision about whether Disney Plus is for you or not. Disney Plus UK’s launch line-up list is out in the wild, and it’s very comprehensive, with all Star Wars movies, most Marvel movies and a big archive of Pixar stuff to watch. A few treats from the Fox catalogue make the cut, too. Check out our list of 5 highlights here.
We’ve used the app extensively, too, and liked the interface, which seems identical for the UK launch based on our hands-on with it a couple of Fridays ago. Our review of Disney Plus when it launched in the US will give you some idea of what to expect from actually using the service.
