We’ve rounded up some of the biggest movies that are coming to Disney+ - including older cinematic releases and original exclusives. A couple of the titles in here haven’t technically been confirmed, but we suspect that they’ll eventually be coming to the platform at some point.
The One and Only Ivan
14 August 2020
Inspired by the novel by K. A. Applegate, The One and Only Ivan follows a silverback gorilla who is kept in captivity with a number of other animals in a shopping mall. There, he begins to question his heritage and long for freedom. This Disney+ original features the voices of Sam Rockwell, Angelina Jolie, Danny DeVito, Helen Mirren and also stars Bryan Cranston.
14 August 2020
This Disney Plus live action exclusive follows Andy Tuckerman (played by Adam DeVine), a counsellor who returns to the magic camp of his youth to reignite his career, only to find inspiration from a bunch of rookie magicians who are based there.
Phineas and Ferb: Candace Against the Universe
28 August 2020
The second Phineas and Ferb flick will be exclusive to Disney Plus, and the sequel to Phineas and Ferb the Movie: Across the 2nd Dimension. Phineas and Ferb will go on a quest across the galaxy to save their sister Candace, who is in a utopia in a far off planet after being abducted by aliens.
4 September 2020 (at an additional price)
Though it's the latest in the long list of Disney live action remakes, Mulan may end up being the most different to the original cartoon. There will be NO singing (moment of silence for 'Let's get down to business') and no Mushu - so this is going to be more of a dramatic interpretation of a Disney classic.
Mulan will be released in both cinemas and on Disney+ - but the latter will cost subscribers an additional US$29.99 (UK pricing TBC).
Secret Society of Second-Born Royals
25 September 2020
Disney princess movies are pretty iconic at this point, but this Disney+ original is putting a new spin on that classic troupe. Sam (played by Peyton Elizabeth Lee) is a rebellious princess who discovers that not only does she have superpowers, but she’s also a part of a top-secret programme that is dedicated to keeping peace in the kingdom of Illyria.
Onward is already out on Disney+ in the US, but we're still waiting for the Pixar film to come to the UK streaming platform. Onward tells the tale of two elf brothers (voiced by Tom Holland and Chris Pratt) who go on a journey to find some magic that will bring their late father back to life. You can see what other Pixar films are on Disney+ UK right here.
Whilst Disney Plus UK has a good portion of the X-Men movies, some key titles are missing, so we wouldn’t be surprised to see them added in the future. Apocalypse follows the team fighting an all-powerful mutant - considered a god - who is trying to bring extinction to Earth.
Whilst the most recent movie in the X-Men universe wasn’t exactly a smash hit, this is still a big title that’s currently missing from the Disney+ superhero lineup. Dark Phoenix follows the estranged Jean Grey as she begins to spiral out of control and ultimately turn against the X-Men.
X-Men First Class
The final X-Men film missing from the Disney+ line-up is First Class, detailing how Professor Charles Xavier (James McAvoy) and Erik Lehnsherr (Michael Fassbender) became mortal enemies as Professor X and Magneto during the Cuban Missile Crisis of 1962. We also get to see how the team of mutants originally formed, setting up for future stories.
