A new month is coming, which means lots of new additions to Disney Plus in the UK – from recent films like West Side Story, The Eyes of Tammy Faye and Pixar’s brand new Turning Red, to returning shows like Grey’s Anatomy Season 17, as well as the new hotly anticipated Marvel series – Moon Knight.
Disney+ (see our full review) can be streamed on most streaming devices and Smart TVs in the UK, and includes content from the worlds of Disney, Marvel, Pixar, Star Wars, National Geographic and Star – which is Disney’s general entertainment category for more mature audiences.
In the UK, Disney+ costs £7.99/month or £79.90/year – and you can subscribe directly via this link.
There’s been a lot of noise on social media in recent weeks, regarding a Disney+ price rise. However, this is the same price rise that took place last year – but some early subscribers, who were able to keep the older price for another year – are only seeing the increase now. Read our full explanation about the Disney+ price rise here.
