Everything Added To Disney+ Via Today’s Massive Star Expansion

Disney+ made a big splash in the movie and TV streaming world in 2019 when it arrived on what was an already crowded scene. With Marvel and Star Wars on top of decades of its own classic movies to offer, it was always going to be a success. The only worry was what would come next. Disney gave subscribers pretty much everything right off the bat. Well, for subscribers outside of the US, that “what’s next” arrives today in the form of new Disney+ expansion, Star.

Disney+ Star will look slightly different depending on where you are in the world. If you’re in the US, then the new tab won’t be there at all. That’s due to the fact that most of the content added via Star is already available on Hulu. US subscribers can get Disney+, Hulu, and ESPN+ for $12.99 per month though. Disney+ subscribers in Europe, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, and Singapore should now be able to find a Disney Star tab in the app. Disney Star will be coming to Latin America later this year and will be available via a separate app.

The Star expansion is a big one and effectively adds a lot of content geared towards adults rather than children. Although everyone loves Monsters Inc, most Disney+ content up until this point has been kid-friendly. A lot of what has been added via Star most definitely is not, including shows like The X-Files and the long-awaited arrival to the Disney family of Deadpool. More than 75 TV shows and 270 movies have been added today, and you can check out some of the biggest and best below.

More Than 75 TV Shows

Since Disney has been a juggernaut in the movie industry for the better part of a century, TV shows are definitely where its streaming service needed to be bulked up. Original series such as The Mandalorian and WandaVision have been huge hits, but many subscribers will want shows they can go back and watch over and over. That’s why Netflix has shows like The Office and Parks and Rec. Disney+ now has a few rewatchable heavy-hitters of its own, the best of which can be found below.

  • Modern Family
  • Grey’s Anatomy
  • Lost
  • The X-Files
  • Family Guy
  • American Dad
  • Buffy the Vampire Slayer
  • Desperate Housewives
  • How I Met Your Mother
  • Glee
  • Prison Break
  • Scrubs
  • Ugly Betty
  • Sons of Anarchy
  • Scandal
  • 24

More than 270 Movies

Yes, as touched upon above, Disney doesn’t really need any help on the movie front. However, there will be occasions when subscribers want to kick back and watch something that isn’t animated, or filled with superheroes, or takes place in a galaxy far, far away. Star has arrived to help satisfy that gap in Disney’s market, and some of the biggest movies now available on the service can be found below.

  • Deadpool 2
  • Borat
  • Braveheart
  • Commando
  • Die Hard 2
  • Die Hard With A Vengeance
  • The Devil Wears Prada
  • The Fault In Our Stars
  • Enemy of the State
  • Independence Day
  • The Grand Budapest Hotel
  • The Maze Runner
  • Moulin Rouge
  • Planet of the Apes
  • Pretty Woman
  • Shallow Hal
  • There’s Something About Mary
  • The Waterboy

On top of the 75+ TV shows and 270+ movies, Star also brings with it four of its own original series. Big Sky, Helstrom, Love, Victor, and Solar Opposites. A full list of everything added via Disney Star can be found on the expansion’s official website. The massive update also comes with a new option to set parental controls, which you might want to take a look at if you have kids in the house now that the likes of Borat and Deadpool are living under the Disney tree.

Josh has been gaming for as long as he can remember. That love began with a mild childhood addiction to the Sega Genesis, or Mega Drive since he lives in the UK. Back then, Sonic 2 quickly became his favorite game and as you might have guessed from his picture, the franchise has remained close to his heart ever since. Nowadays, he splits his time between his PS4 and his Switch and spends far too much time playing Fortnite.
