If you've not yet found out what £4.99 a month could get you, May could be the time to dip in.

Disney Plus, which launched in the UK on 24 March 2020, is a hub of films, TV series and shorts from the media conglomerate and all the brands it owns.

That means that as well as Disney classics like The Lion King and Beauty and the Beast, there's also the best of Pixar like Finding Nemo and The Incredibles.

Disney also owns Marvel, Star Wars, National Geographic and Fox, so all their films and documentaries are included too.

Like other streaming services, new additions are made on a regular basis.

Although with much of Disney's classic output already available, we might not see tent-pole new arrivals as often as we do elsewhere.

Nevertheless, in May 2020 subscribers have Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker to look forward to as the final film of the saga comes to Disney+.

And seeing as it's 'Star Wars Day' on May 4, the service will also see the debut of The Mandalorian's behind-the-scenes documentary series and the finale of the Clone Wars animated series.

Here's everything coming to the service in May 2020:
