What’s coming soon to Disney+ UK in October 2021?
James R | On 29, Sep 2021
Disney’s Netflix rival is here, serving up Marvel, Star Wars and Pixar originals, along with a post-modern revamp of High School Musical and every episode of The Simpsons.
This month sees Disney+ head into spooky territory, with the UK TV premiere of American Horror Story Season 10, as well as the debut of its new RL Stine anthology horror Just Beyond. There are also Halloween specials from The Muppets and LEGO Star Wars, plus a chance to catch up with the TV show What We Do in the Shadows. And, for those looking for something non-scary, there’s the chance to stream Marvel’s Black Widow without paying a Premier Access fee.
Here’s what’s coming soon to Disney+ UK in October 2021:
