A brilliant mix of classics and brand new releases have been added…

No matter what mood you’re in, no matter what kind of movie or show you’re looking for, the recent additions to Star and the other platforms on Disney+ will definitely offer you something you’ll know and enjoy, or discover and love.

Kicking things off with…


Three-time Oscar-winner Frances McDormand stars in the powerful drama about a woman who loses everything in the recession, so she embarks on a personal journey through America, living in her van as a kind of modern-day nomad.

It recently won three Oscars at the 2021 Academy Awards, including Best Picture, Best Director for writer/director Chloé Zhao and Best Actress for McDormand.

Grey’s Anatomy

If you’re a fan of the hugely popular medical drama – which has previously given us both McDreamy AND McSteamy – then you should be VERY happy to hear that Season 16 of the show is now available to watch.

If you’re already 15 seasons in, then you clearly don’t need any more convincing from us!

The 25th Hour

Spike Lee’s powerful 2002 drama sees a convicted New York drug dealer (Edward Norton) reevaluating his entire life across his final 24 hours of freedom before spending years in jail.

A massively impressive cast-list includes Philip Seymour Hoffman, Barry Pepper, Brian Cox, Anna Paquin, and Rosaria Dawson.


We’re going all the way back to the ’90s for this incredibly entertaining end-of-the-world disaster movie.

Bruce Willis and Ben Affleck head up a rag-tag group of deep sea oil drillers who are drafted by NASA to dig to the core of an incoming asteroid, with the hopes of blowing it up before it destroys mankind.

And who forget THAT iconic song from the movie’s soundtrack…

Baby’s Day Out

Imagine Home Alone, but if Kevin was a baby instead of an 8-year old boy…

That is kiiiind of the premise here, as three kidnappers completely bungle their attempts to hold a little baby ransom from his rich parents, when it turns out that the baby is (accidentally) a lot more competent than most adults.

And keep an eye out for Sex And The City’s Cynthia Nixon in one of her early movie roles!

Big Shot

John Stamos headlines this new series from the creators of Big Little Lies and The Undoing, playing an NBA coach with anger management issues, who has one outburst too many and finds himself fired from his job.

Trying to rebuild his career, he takes on the job as the coach of an all-girls high school basketball team.

Check out the trailer from the brand new show right here…

Dangerous Minds

Yes, it is probably best known now as the movie that gave us the iconic ‘Gangsta’s Paradise’, but there is more to this than just the killer soundtrack.

It has Michelle Pfeiffer as an ex-Marine, who takes on the job as a teacher in an inner city school, and tries to find a way to reach and connect with her new students.

Father of the Bride 1 & 2

Steve Martin is the titular father of the bride in these TWO much-loved comedies.

In the first one, he tries to wrap his head around his daughter actually getting married, while the sequel sees him contending with his daughter becoming a mother herself, while his own wife (Diane Keaton) also discovers she’s pregnant.

The perfect double bill for a Saturday night in!


This series takes an inside look at the real-life romantic and creative partnership between influential choreographer and director, Bob Fosse (played by Sam Rockwell), and Gwen Verdon (Michelle Williams), one of the greatest Broadway dancers of all time.

Solar Opposites Season 2

If you loved the first season of Solar Opposites, the new series from Justin Roiland, the co-creator of Rick & Morty, and you were worried you might have to wait a long time for the next season, we can put your mind at ease!

Korvo, Terry, and the rest of their alien family continue to try to adapt to life on Earth in their own irreverent, brilliantly weird and very, very funny way.

All of these, plus much more, are now streaming on Disney+.
