If you’re eagerly wondering if Disney Plus will come to New Zealand, the wait is almost over. Disney Plus (or Disney+) will launch in New Zealand later this month. Here’s everything you need to know to get ready.
The wait is almost over, as Disney+ is scheduled to launch in New Zealand on November 19. Disney fans in the country will be able to enjoy a large library of new and older-released Disney content just one week after the service launches in the US, Canada, and the Netherlands.
New Zealanders may feel a bit antsy having to wait longer than the US, Canada, and Netherlands launch, but it’s not all bad news. Some countries won’t see Disney+ until the end of 2020, or even later.
What Titles Will Be Available In New Zealand at Launch?
Disney is planning to load most of its family-friendly content onto the Disney+ streaming service. To help alleviate any tension, the company took to Twitter in October 2019, and over the course of about 600 tweets, gave the full list of titles that will be available upon launch.
Over 600 movies and TV shows owned and created by Disney will be immediately available on-demand once the service launches in New Zealand on November 19.
Need to see proof? Disney also created a 3-hour-long preview video of all of its launch content.
The most anticipated titles, however, will be the original content Disney is promoting for the service. You’ll be able to watch some unique, Disney+ only originals, which include:
The Mandalorian (available at launch)
Based in the Star Wars universe, this live-action TV show follows lone gunfighter who wears the armor of the Mandalorians (which some viewers may recognize as similar to the bounty hunters Boba Fett and Jango Fett).
High School Musical: The Musical: The Series
Disney goes full meta in this musical series about a high school group who decides to create a High School Musical.
Forky Asks a Question (available at launch)
A mini-series “hosted” by the Toy Story character Forky, who asks probing questions about the mysteries of the universe (such as “what is cheese?”).
Lady and the Tramp (available at launch)
Disney continues its exploration in live-action remakes with the iconic dog romance film about two pups from different sides of the track.
Disney has over 50 original titles ready to go starting on November 12 and into 2020.
