By March, Disney Plus’ “adult” streaming section, Star, will already be in full swing. Therefore, looking ahead, we’re going to get a long list of films and shows for both the “regular” Disney+ sections, as well as Star. From Marvel’s The Falcon and the Winter Soldier, to animated classic The Cleveland Show, classic thriller like Taken 1 and 2, and much more.
Disney+ (see our full review) can be streamed on a multitude of streaming devices, and includes films and TV shows from the worlds of Disney, Marvel, Pixar, Star Wars, National Geographic and Star – with content from Disney’s various general entertainment brands.
In the UK and as of this writing, Disney+ still costs £5.99/month or £59.99 for a full year. On February 23, however, the price will rise to £7.99/month or £79/year – so if you plan to subscribe, this is your last chance to get it at the old price.
If you’re already an existing subscriber – here’s our guide on what’s going to happen to your Disney+ pricing.
And now – for the new content. While the list might change later with new surprise additions, here are the current highlights for March 2021:
