SINGAPORE — Disney's streaming service, Disney+, has finally landed in Singapore! With its catalogue of all the shows that Disney – and Disney-owned properties – have ever made, as well as a host of upcoming new shows, Disney+ offers a compelling value proposition for TV lovers.

There are already 650 films and 150,000 episodes of content upon Disney+'s launch here on 23 February – that doesn't include all the original content that has yet to be released.

Singapore happens to be one of the first territories in the world to host Disney+'s sixth and latest brand, Star, on top of its other properties – Disney, Pixar, Marvel, Star Wars, and National Geographic.

We give you the lowdown on what are the hottest movies and TV series on Disney+.

Disney

Disney's latest animated blockbuster, Raya And The Last Dragon, will be released on 5 March simultaneously in theatres and on Disney+ Premier Access.

Godmothered, starring Isla Fisher and Jillian Bell, premiered in December 2020. It's a comedy about a fairy godmother determined to revive her dying occupation in the modern world.

Flora & Ulysses, based on a bestselling children's novel, began streaming on 19 Feb. It's a movie about a girl whose pet squirrel has superhero powers. Yep, you read that right.

What we know about Raya And The Last Dragon so far

Here's the best order to watch the Marvel Cinematic Universe

Marvel

After the cataclysmic battle against Thanos in Avengers: Endgame, Phase 4 of the Marvel Cinematic Universe will feature both event movies released in theatres and TV series exclusive to Disney+. We've been starved for Marvel content for a while now – WandaVision satiates that thirst. Disney+ has so far released seven out of the series' slated nine episodes.

The Falcon And The Winter Soldier is the next Disney+ original Marvel series; it will begin streaming on 19 March.

Loki, a series focusing on the Norse god of mischief, will be released on 11 June 2021.

Ms Marvel, starring Iman Vellani as Kamala Khan, will introduce a new superhero to the MCU. The series is expected to stream in late 2021.

Jeremy Renner will reprise his role as Clint Barton from the Avengers movies in Hawkeye, coming in late 2021. The series is still filming, so there is no official trailer yet.

Pixar

Besides the whole library of the beloved Pixar animated films, fans will be treated to other content such as Pixar Popcorn, a collection of mini-shorts starring favourite characters in all-new stories. All episodes began streaming on 22 January.

Dug Days is an animation series spun off from the movie Up, starring Bob Peterson as the "talking" dog Dug. It will premiere on Disney+ in late 2021.

Star Wars

Like Marvel, the Star Wars franchise will release a whole flurry of interlocking series on Disney+.

Disney+'s flagship series on its initial global launch, The Mandalorian, about a bounty hunter protecting Baby Yoda from threats across the galaxy in the wake of the fall of the Empire, recently dropped its second season.

The Bad Batch is a new animated series that's dropping on 4 May 2021 (it's Star Wars Day, May the Fourth, geddit?) The show follows the elite and experimental clones of the Bad Batch (first introduced in The Clone Wars) as they find their way in a rapidly changing galaxy in the immediate aftermath of the Clone War.

Ewan McGregor will reprise his role as the Jedi Master in Obi-Wan Kenobi, which was delayed last year but is expected to hit Disney+ sometime in 2022.

Andor, a 12-episode live-action series following the Rebel soldier Cassian Andor, will stream in 2022 on Disney+.

Currently still in production, Ahsoka is a new series starring Rosario Dawson, set within the timeline of The Mandalorian. It's expected to be released sometime in 2022. There is no official trailer for Ahsoka yet.

Rangers Of The New Republic, another live-action series set in the same time period as The Mandalorian and Ahsoka, will cross over with its fellow titles before forming a "climactic story event." It's also expected to drop in 2022.

National Geographic

You might not have known this, but the renowned nature and documentary channel, National Geographic, is owned by Disney. Shows under this brand include Gordon Ramsay: Uncharted, which features the famous chef travelling the world and cooking in wild terrains.

The Right Stuff is a scripted series about the first astronauts and their families, that explores the origins and growth of the United States' space program.

Star

Star is Disney's international online home for more adult content with additional parental controls. The new brand on the streaming platform hosts content that in the United States is carried by Hulu, which is owned by Disney.

The inclusion of Star doubled the amount of content available to watch on Disney+, as it includes shows and films from Disney Television Studios, FX, 20th Century Studios and 20th Television.

Star has originals and classic content including Big Sky, Helstrom, Grey's Anatomy, the Deadpool films, 24, Lost, Desperate Housewives, How I Met Your Mother, Prison Break, The X-Files, and some of the Die Hard movies.

Star Original series Big Sky, a thriller from David E. Kelley (Big Little Lies), follows a hunt for two sisters who have been kidnapped by a truck driver on a remote highway in Montana.

Disney+ is available in Singapore for S$11.98 a month or S$119.98 per year (15% savings on yearly plans).
