Disney+ Star: What will be available at launch?

Staff Writer

This February sees Disney+ step up its streaming game, as the House of Mouse adds its long-awaited adult section to its subscription streaming platform.

Called Star, the brand will be home to thousands of hours of movies and television from Disney’s creative studios that would otherwise not fit within the family-friendly remit of Disney+. That will give an official streaming home to titles from Disney Television Studios, FX, 20th Century Studios (the rebranded 20th Century Fox), 20th Television, Touchstone and more.

The new Star section will launch on 23rd February, at which point a Disney+ subscription will rise to £7.99 a month. For that money, subscribers will get 1,000 unique titles lined up for its first year, starting with 75 TV series and 285 movies on launch day – plus 4 Star Originals. (Monthly or annual prices for existing subscribers will be honoured for six months, with any automatic renewals only switching to the new, higher price after 22nd August 2021.)

Star Originals at launch include crime thriller Big Sky from David E Kelley (Big Little Lies); Love, Simon spin-off series Love, Victor, adult animated sitcom Solar Opposites co-created by Justin Roiland (Rick & Morty), and drama series Helstrom. Confirmed exclusive titles arriving later in 2021 will include Dopesick starring Michael Keaton and Rosario Dawson, The Dropout staring Kate McKinnon, a slate of FX originals including The Old Man staring Jeff Bridges and new content from the Kardashian Jenners.

Older TV series available at launch will include Firefly, Modern Family, 24, Lost, Desperate Housewives, Prison Break, How I Met Your Mother and The X-Files.

Movies, though, are where Disney+ Star will shine: the many impressive titles available at launch will include Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri, The Grand Budapest Hotel, The Favourite, Pretty Woman, Die Hard 2, 3, 4 and 5, The Devil Wears Prada, Moulin Rouge, Deadpool 2 and Starship Troopers. Notably, there aren’t any Alien films in the launch line-up – they are mostly on Sky Cinema until the end of August this year, so you can likely expect them to jump across then. Predator is also absent, perhaps for the same reason – Predator and Predator 2 are also on Sky Cinema until the end of July.

New parental controls launching on 23rd February will give users the ability set limits on access to content and add a PIN to lock profiles with access to mature content.

Here’s the full list of what’s available on Star on Disney+ at launch:
