Disney+ today announced that Star on Disney+ will launch on Tuesday, Feb. 23, 2021. Think of Star as a sub-brand on Disney+ that will carry content owned or licensed by Disney, but that otherwise lives outside the Disney+ family. 

Or in other words, it's like Hulu, but outside the United States.

So what's on Star on Disney+? A lot. The sub-brand will have more than 75 television series and more than 270 movies at launch, including four new titles that are exclusives to Star. Those will include Big Sky, from David E. Kelley (Big Little Lies, The Undoing), the Love, Simon spinoff Love, Victor (read our full review on that one), the animated sitcom Solar Opposites, and the new dramatic series Helstrom.

“Star will be an integral part of Disney+, making it bigger, bolder and even more exciting," Jan Koeppen, president, The Walt Disney Company EMEA, said in a press release. "The arrival of hundreds of TV series and movies including our exclusive Star Originals will make Disney+ the premier destination for high quality entertainment with something for everyone. Needless to say, all this comes with parental controls to give parents that peace of mind.”

In addition to the UK and Ireland, Star on Disney+ also will be available in France, Germany, Italy, Spain, Switzerland, Portugal, Belgium, Luxembourg, the Netherlands, Norway, Sweden, Denmark, Finland and Iceland, as well as in Australia, New Zealand and Canada starting Feb. 23, 2021.

Disney+ currently costs £5.99 a month or £59.99 in the UK. (You can find prices for all supported countries here.) Starting Feb. 23, Disney+ will increase to £7.99 a month or £79.90 annually. Existing subscribers on Feb. 23 will keep that lower price for six months, with the increase not landing until Aug. 22, 2021.

Here's the full list of shows coming to Star on Disney+. (Some content will vary by country, and all are subject to change.)
