With exclusive original content and thousands of episodes and movies from Disney, Pixar, Marvel, Star Wars, National Geographic and general entertainment from Star, Disney+ looks to take on the likes of Netflix, Showmax, Apple TV+ and Amazon Prime in South Africa, with an arsenal of world-class content.


In addition, the Marvel Studios’ series MOON KNIGHT starring Oscar Isaac as Steven Grant, which sees a mild-mannered gift-shop employee becoming plagued with blackouts and memories of another life as well as Academy Award-nominated SHANG-CHI AND THE LEGEND OF THE TEN RINGS starring Simu Liu and Awkwafina, will also be available at launch.


Subscribers will also be able to enjoy Disney and Pixar’s Academy Award-nominated LUCA, Walt Disney Animation Studios’ Academy Award-winning ENCANTO, which tells the tale of an extraordinary family called the Madrigals.

In general entertainment, subscribers will also be able to watch titles including THE SIMPSONS, QUEENS, and THE KARDASHIANS. From National Geographic, fans will have access to both seasons of THE WORLD ACCORDING TO JEFF GOLDBLUM which sees Jeff take us on an entertaining, insightful, and playful ride. In each episode of this 12-part series, he pulls on the thread of a deceptively familiar object to unravel a world of astonishing connections and fascinating science and history.


Disney+ looks to offer access to high-quality viewing for up to four concurrent streams, unlimited downloads on up to ten devices, and the ability to set up to seven different profiles, including the ability for parents to set Kids Profiles that have an easy-to-navigate, child-friendly interface to access age-appropriate content.
