Disney Plus is set for a huge expansion next month, with hundreds of new series and films added to the streaming platform.
The service teased its ‘biggest content drop ever’ this morning with the launch of its Star content.
Launching on February 23, Disney Plus UK Star will include hit series such as Grey’s Anatomy, Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Prison Break, Desperate Housewives and Sons of Anarchy.
Glee, How I Met Your Mother, The Devil Wears Prada and many more titles are all being scooped up by Disney Plus, which we can imagine isn’t great news for the long-running leader of the streaming platforms, Netflix.
Nearly 300 blockbusters are due to be added to Disney Plus, and we can’t wait.
Sharing an image on Instagram, it wrote: “Our. Biggest. Content. Drop. Ever. 🤩
“Introducing STAR, a whole new world of entertainment coming to Disney+ on 23rd February ⭐️
“What are you looking forward to most? 👇 #StaronDisneyPlus”
Other titles include Borat, Con Air, Deadpool 2 and There’s Something About Mary.
It’s a step away from the family-friendly content that has been the focus of the platform so far.
Along with the raft of new content will also come a price hike, which could put off some new users.
It’s quite a hefty jump, costing users an extra £20 a year.
Disney Plus will increase from its current £5.99 per month to £7.99 per month, or from £59.99 per year to £79.90 per year.
But there is a way to avoid the jump in subscription fee for six months. .
If you’re already registered to Disney Plus before Star launches, your pricing will stay the same until August 23, 2021.
So if you’re not signed up and the launch of Disney Plus UK Star has tempted you, now is the time to register.
Star will house content from Disney’s creative studios, including Disney Television Studios (20th Television and ABC Signature), FX Productions and 20th Century Studios.
It will also have some of its own original content.
