But there is also another option available to you from today.

Disney Plus, the brand new streaming service from the Walt Disney Company, is launching today (Tuesday 24th March) in the UK, months after it arrived in the US, bringing with it a host of classic films, beloved series and exciting new shows to suit all the family too.

What can I watch on Disney Plus?

Two weeks ago, the streaming service announced that when the service launched it would come with more than 500 films, 350 series and 16 brand new, original series.

Best films coming to Disney Plus UK

So there are a lot of Disney cartoon classics obviously, but also if the film has a Disney update that will be included to. For instance, Beauty and the Beast - both the 1991 version and 2017 Emma Watson-starring one - will be included.

Then there are teen favourites like The Cheetah Girls, High School Musical (yes one, two and three), Freaky Friday and more.

Pixar movies like Finding Nemo, Finding Dory, Brave and all four Toy Story franchises are in the mix.

Remember both Marvel and Star Wars are now owned by Disney, meaning pretty much all the Marvel films - from the Avengers series to the individual superhero stories like Thor and Captain Marvel are included - as are all the Star Wars originals, prequels and sequels.

Then there are a whole other bunch of films like 10 Things I Hate About You, Cheaper By The Dozen, Home Alone, The Sound Of Music, Sister Act, Never Been Kissed and While You Were Sleeping too.

Best TV shows coming to Disney Plus UK

Disney Channel favourites like Boy Meets World, Hannah Montana, Kim Possible, Recess and That's So Raven are naturally included. Plus, over 600 episodes of The Simpsons will be added to the roster.

There are also one-off documentaries from National Geographic like The Flood, Diana: In Her Own Words (about the Princess of Wales), Stonehenge Decoded and Titanic: 20 Years Later with James Cameron.

Best new Disney Plus Originals

As ever, a new streaming series doesn't just play licensed content. Some of the Disney Plus originals have been the most hyped upcoming TV shows and films.

There is a Lady of the Tramp remake film and then new series including a High School Musical one, Encore! starring Kristen Bell and The Mandalorian.
