Disney Plus is turning two, and like any toddler, it's throwing a party. But instead of scoffing jelly and ice cream, it's launched a raft of huge releases all available to stream for Disney subscribers on 'Disney Plus Day' – today, 12th November.

You'll find Jungle Cruise and Shang-Chi And The Legend Of The Ten Rings available to subscribers at no extra cost – the former was previously only available on the Premier Access option, while the latter is only in cinemas right now. This all rather nicely coincides with the Disney Plus £1.99/$1.99 for one month deal. Today is your last chance to grab it.

But that's not all. The House of Mouse also has other new content lined up for today, including movies, shows, and Marvel and Star Wars specials.

These include:

  • Home Sweet Home Alone – a Disney Plus original that reimagines the Macaulay Culkin original 
  • Olaf Presents – new shorts from Disney's Animation Studios which sees Frozen's snowman retell several classic Disney tales in his own inimitable style
  • The debut of more Disney shorts like Frozen Fever, the Oscar-winning Feast and Paperman, Oscar-nominated Mickey Mouse short Get A Horse! and more
  • Ciao Alberto – a Pixar animated short featuring characters from the feature-length Luca
  • The Simpsons Plusaversary – a new Simpsons short that "pays tribute to Disney Plus's marquee brands"
  • Episodes one to five from series two of National Geographic's The World According to Jeff Goldblum
  • Under the Helmet – a special on the origins and legacy of Star Wars' bounty hunter, Boba Fett
  • Assembled – a special celebrating the Marvel Cinematic Universe including "an exciting look towards the future"
  • Dopesick – a Star original series starring Michael Keaton

Disney+ <a href="" data-link-merchant=""">first month for just £1.99/$1.99/AU$1.99
Get access to Disney's Marvel, National Geographic, Pixar, and Star Wars content, with classic and new shows coming online every day – including Star Wars. No contract, cancel anytime.

Today also sees Disney Plus expand to South Korea and Taiwan, with Hong Kong following on 16th November. And Disney Plus subscribers who head to Disney's theme parks and cruise liners are promised "photo opportunities, character moments and more".

Disney has promised to make this an annual company-wide shindig, or, in the words of the firm's CEO Bob Chapek, "an annual tentpole event to be amplified across our global businesses".

Since Disney Plus launched, it has enjoyed stratospheric growth, reaching over 100 million subscribers much quicker than it envisaged. The app is now available on Panasonic TVs too.
