What's on Disney+ UK? A guide to every original TV show and film

As a nation sits behind closed doors, what new marvels does Disney have in store?

The wait is over – Disney+ has arrived in the UK. The dedicated streaming service for films and TV shows from Disney, Pixar, Marvel, Star Wars and more can be  yours for £5.99 a month. And with the big-screen release of most its spring and summer titles already pulled (Mulan, The New Mutants and Antlers, with Black Widow widely expected to follow), this might well be the time to make the investment.

There are plenty of family favourites from the back catalogue to enjoy, including (almost) every Star Wars film, (almost) every Marvel flick, and every episode of The Simpsons (that's 640, if you're counting). But Disney+ isn't just a retirement home for the studio's past glories. The service is packed with new and original content, presumably in a bid to skewer a few subscribers away from rivals Netflix and Amazon.

Here is The Telegraph's definitive guide to every original show and movie streaming now.

Original shows

The Mandalorian

The rave-reviewed Star Wars spin-off that spurred a million Baby Yoda memes. The Mandalorian's story is set between the fall of the Empire and the emergence of the First Order, following the travails of a lone gunfighter in the outer reaches of the galaxy, and has already filled an asteroid-size hole in the hearts of Star Wars superfans worldwide.

Forky Asks A Question

Toy Story Four's break-out star Forky gets his own spin-off show of three-minute shorts, stabbing away at the same big existential questions that Toy Story handles with such cheerful aplomb. What is money? What is a friend? By the end of the pandemic, none of us may remember, but in the meantime, this should keep the kids entertained. 

High School Musical: The Musical: The Series

No, we didn't realise it was possible to stick that many clauses in one show title either. The series tells the story of the students of the school where the High School Musical movies were shot doing their own rendition of the movie that started it all. Meta, right?

The World According To Jeff Goldblum

A bizarre concept which sees the Jurassic Park star embark on a cultural tour of America, taking as his starting point each week a familiar household object. Such as, um, denim, ice-cream, and sneakers. Each half-hour episode begins with some tenuous but oddly touching link to Goldblum's childhood in Pittsburgh. So weird you may just have to watch it.

Star Wars: The Clone Wars (Season 7)

Disney+ will stream all six existing and a brand new seventh season of this popular animated Star Wars spin-off, featuring  Anakin Skywalker and Obi-Wan Kenobi, as well as Clone Wars originals like Jedi Padawan Ahsoka Tano and Captain Rex. This season apparently tells the story that show runner David Filoni always wanted to tell during the show's original run, which ended in 2014. 

Lamp Life

Forky ain't the only toy to be enjoying the spotlight. In Lamp Life, we get the backstory of how bad-ass porcelain shepherdess Bo Peep became a proud and heroic Lost Toy in Toy Story 4, based on deleted footage from the film. It's a funny, often melancholy series of flashbacks in which Bo tells Woody (voiced by Tom Hanks' younger brother Jim) about her past.

Marvel’s Hero Project

An uplifting documentary series following the achievements of 20 young “real-life heroes” in their own communities. You'll meet The Incredible Elijah, who campaigns to protect vulnerable children from abuse, and The Might Rebekah, Marvel's first transgender hero.

Be Our Chef

A cooking show in which Disney-loving contestants prepare Disney-inspired dishes to be judged by Disney’s “legendary chefs” as well as celebrity guests judges from the Disney cinematic universe.

Disney Fairytale Weddings

Hosts (and real-life couple) Stephen Boss and Allison Holker work with Disney's Fairy Tale Weddings & Honeymoons to make each couple's dream wedding a reality at Disney locations all over the world, including Disney World, Disneyland, Aulani (Disney's Hawaiian resort), and onboard the Disney Cruise Line.

Disney Insider

Documentary series that goes behind-the-scenes on different Disney projects, from music and travel destinations to theme parks and film sets.


Teams of inventive student sare tasked with designing, building, and testing new contraptions to compete for the title of Shop Class Champs. In each episode, they’ll present their work to a panel of experts who will rate their projects based on engineering, design, and the final test of the build.

Diary of a Future President

The optimistic story of Elena Cañero-Reed (Gina Rodriguez, also a producer), the United States’ first female and Cuban-American presiden.

Pick of the Litter

A factual series about how guide dogs are trained.

The Imagineering Story

A behind-the-scenes look at the creation of Disney Land.


A reality show in which former high school thesps reunite after decades apart.

Original films

Lady and the Tramp

A live action retelling of the 1955 classic with a voice cast including Tessa Thompson and Justin Theroux, and packed with adorable pooches.

Star Girl

Based on the New York Times’ best-selling young adult novel of the same name. The film follows confident and colourful highschooler Stargirl Caraway and shy bleacher Leo Borlock, who falls for her.

One Day

Another entry to add to the “self-obsessed” category of Disney's original content. Narrated by the smooth tones of Sterling K. Brown, this documentary gives short profiles of 10 people who work for Disney, from former CEO Bob Iger to animator Eric Goldberg.


Based on the true story of an epic Alaskan adventure undertaken by Leonhard Seppala, played by Willem Dafoe, and his dog, Togo, in the treacherous winter of 1925.

Timmy Failure

“The name is misleading because I am anything but.” Young Timmy Failure has a secret: he operates a detective agency, in small town Oregon, along with his 1,500-pound polar bear partner Total. Based on the best-selling book.


And in a final bizarre twist to the platform's original output, we have a Christmas film. Anna Kendrick stars as Santa's daughter in this goofy festive trifle. When her good-for-nothing uncle, played by Bill Hader, skips town to become a yoga instructor, rather than taking over Santa duties, it's up to Noelle and Elf Polly (yes, she’s played by Shirley MacLaine) to track him down, and save Christmas etc. You get the gist.

Disney+ is now available in the UK with a seven-day free trial
