February is going to be a very big month for Disney+ in the UK: The new ‘adult’ section, “Star” is launching, and will be bringing with it a host of new and classic programmes. In addition, next month brings with it The Muppet Show, more episodes of Wandavision and more.
In the UK, Disney+ currently costs £5.99/month or £59.99 for a full year. Next month, however, the price will rise to £7.99/month or £79/year – so if you plan to subscribe, hurry up and get it at the old price.
While the list might change throughout the month with new surprise additions, here are the current highlights for February 2021:

Marvel’s Behind The Mask
A documentary special that explores the power of identity behind the iconic superheroes we know and love today.
From the very inception of comic books, secret identities have been an integral part of both superheroes and villains leading “normal” lives. But it’s the characters beneath that resonate within us across generations of fans.
Since the advent of the Marvel Age of Comics in the early 1960s, Marvel’s writers and artists have used the notion of identities to examine the evolving concept of equal rights. These legendary Marvel creations and stories have not only reflected the world outside our window – they have become a reflection of our own identities and who we truly are.
