Best Movies Coming To Disney Plus UK
With over 500 films in the Disney Plus UK library, you’re a bit spoilt for choice on what to watch.
If however you’ve seen all the flicks you’re interested in – or you’ve managed to binge the entire library with all the time spent in the house in these trying times – then there’s still more films to look forward to over the next few months. If you’ve not yet signed up for an account, you can register on the Disney+ website for £5.99 per month, or £59.99 per year.
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.

If you just can’t get enough of Frozen, then this short film will be perfect for you. Once Upon a Snowman explores Olaf’s first moments of life after being created by Elsa outside of the steps of Arendelle. It will show how Olaf came to be who we know now, and will give us more insight into the adorable snowy creature.
Lego Star Wars Holiday Special
The Star Wars Holiday special is a fandom favourite, and now Disney+ is giving it a modern Lego twist. The film will feature heroes and villains across all nine films in the Skywalker saga, and will also star the voices of previous members of the franchise, including Kelly Marie Tran (Rose Tico), Billy Dee Williams (Lando Calrissian) and Anthony Daniels (C-3PO).

Music teacher Joe Gardener dreams of being on the stage, but just as his dreams are coming true, his soul is separated from his body. There, he works with other souls to train them up in order to return to Earth. It’s a bit bonkers, but looks like it could be a tearjerker.
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.
