Read on for our picks of the best Disney+ movies and shows to watch.

 

Lightyear

Find it in Home > Apps > Disney+ or just say “Disney+” from Wednesday 3 August

The first thing you need to know about Lightyear is that it is not, technically speaking, a Toy Story prequel. This Buzz Lightyear (voiced by Chris Evans) is a human, appearing in the film that resulted in the existence of Buzz Lightyear merchandise – including Andy’s beloved plastic toy. But you don’t have to grasp the nuances of the fictional-universe-within-a-fictional-universe to enjoy this retro space-set adventure, which is as uplifting and gorgeously animated as anything you’d expect from Pixar.

 

Prey

Find it in Home > Apps > Disney+ or just say “Disney+” from Friday 5 August

The latest addition to the Predator franchise, new action thriller Prey is set in 1719 among the Comanche Nation, a Native American tribe known as the ‘Lords of the Plains’. The movie follows skilled warrior Naru (Amber Midthunder), who sets out to hunt a mysterious creature that is threatening her camp – only to discover that it is a sophisticated and vicious alien predator with a technically advanced arsenal. Gulp.

 

Only Murders In The Building

Find seasons 1 and 2 in Home > Apps > Disney+ or just say “Disney+” 

Deeply charming, the first season of mystery-comedy series Only Murders In The Building won critical acclaim for its portrayal of an unlikely trio (played by Steve Martin, Martin Short and Selena Gomez) who launch a true-crime podcast after a suspicious death in their Upper West Side apartment block. Season two sees the gang reassess their options after being warned by police to stay out of the case – but whether they’ll be able to resist getting involved seems unlikely.

 

The Kardashians

Find season 2 in Home > Apps > Disney+ or just say “Disney+” from Thursday 22 September. Season 1 available now

The family you know and love is here with a brand new series, giving an all-access pass into their lives. Kris, Kourtney, Kim, Khloé, Kendall, and Kylie bring the cameras back to reveal the truth behind the headlines. From the intense pressures of running billion-dollar businesses to the hilarious joys of playtime and school drop-offs, this series brings viewers into the fold with a rivetingly honest story of love and life in the spotlight. 

Ms. Marvel

Find it in Home > Apps > Disney+ or just say “Disney+” 

This Marvel Studios original series has won rave reviews for its portrayal of a Pakistani-American teenager who idolises the Avengers, then gains superhero abilities of her own. Newcomer Iman Vellani plays 16-year-old New Jersey native Kamala Khan, an avowed fangirl of Carol Danvers (aka Captain Marvel). When a mysterious gift from her grandmother activates Kamala’s ability to control cosmic energy, she sets out to discover the truth about her powers – travelling between different dimensions and meeting her grandmother in 1940s India in the process.

 

Obi-Wan Kenobi

Find it in Home > Apps > Disney+ or just say “Disney+” 

Andor isn’t the only Star Wars miniseries to watch on Disney+. Set 10 years after the events of 2005’s Star Wars: Episode III – Revenge Of The Sith, new six-parter Obi-Wan Kenobi sees Ewan MacGregor and Hayden Christensen reprise their iconic roles as the Jedi Master and Darth Vader. Obi-Wan is on a mission to rescue the kidnapped Princess Leia (Vivien Lyra Blair) from the Galactic Empire – culminating in a seriously emotional showdown with the former Anakin Skywalker.

 

The Princess

Find it in Home > Apps > Disney+ or just say “Disney+” 

Weddings have long been a key plot point of princess narratives, but the young royal at the heart of this new medieval adventure film is determined not to make it down the aisle. Known only as the Princess, she is betrothed against her will to the cruelly sociopathic Julius – and when she refuses, she is imprisoned in a castle tower. As Julius tries to take over the King’s realm, the Princess escapes her imprisonment and sets out to defend her family and kingdom.
