What’s coming soon to Disney+ UK in June 2020?
Staff Reporter | On 02, Jun 2020
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 almost every episode of The Simpsons. Except, due to both the coronavirus pandemic and Disney’s newcomer status in the streaming game, a lot of that original new content is a while off yet. This June, Disney is moving to combat that, bringing forward the release of Maleficent: Mistress of Evil and release new family blockbuster Artemis Fowl straight to Disney+ rather than in cinemas. They’re joined by a new documentary taking us behind the scenes of Frozen 2, alongside the final weekly episodes of making-of docuseries Disney Gallery: The Mandalorian.

Aurora’s impending marriage to Prince Phillip is cause for celebration in the kingdom of Ulstead and the neighboring Moors, as the wedding serves to unite the two worlds.
