These Disney Live-Action Films Will Debut on Disney+ Earlier than Expected. Many of our favorite films are currently available to stream on Disney+, but what about titles that have yet to debut?
Due to existing contracts between streaming services and television networks, many Disney and related titles could not be added to the Disney+ library at the time of launch. That being said, it seems several live-action Disney movies will be headed to Disney+ sooner than expected!
Here are the titles coming soon(er) to Disney+:
The Jungle Book (2016)
“Raised by a family of wolves since birth, Mowgli (Neel Sethi) must leave the only home he’s ever known when the fearsome tiger Shere Khan (Idris Elba) unleashes his mighty roar. Guided by a no-nonsense panther (Ben Kingsley) and a free-spirited bear (Bill Murray), the young boy meets an array of jungle animals, including a slithery python and a smooth-talking ape. Along the way, Mowgli learns valuable life lessons as his epic journey of self-discovery leads to fun and adventure.”
The Jungle Book was set to swing onto Disney+ beginning May 30, 2021, but the streaming service has changed that date to June 19th 2020.
Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales
“Thrust into an all-new adventure, a down-on-his-luck Capt. Jack Sparrow feels the winds of ill-fortune blowing even more strongly when deadly ghost sailors led by his old nemesis, the evil Capt. Salazar, escape from the Devil’s Triangle. Jack’s only hope of survival lies in seeking out the legendary Trident of Poseidon, but to find it, he must forge an uneasy alliance with a brilliant and beautiful astronomer and a headstrong young man in the British navy.”
The last of the Pirates films was to be added to the library on December 2nd, 2020 and now you can watch Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales starting Friday, July 24th, 2020.
Beauty and the Beast (2017)
“An arrogant prince is cursed to live as a terrifying beast until he finds true love. Strangely, his chance comes when he captures an unwary clockmaker, whose place is then taken by his bold and beautiful daughter Belle. Helped by the Beast’s similarly enchanted servants, including a clock, a teapot and a candelabra, Belle begins to see the sensitive soul behind the fearsome facade. But as time runs out, it soon becomes obvious that Belle’s cocky suitor Gaston is the real beast of the piece.”
The live action Beauty and the Beast starring Emma Watson, Dan Stevens, Luke Evans, Josh Gad, Emma Thompson, Ewan McGregor, and Ian McKellen, was scheduled to stream via Disney+ on October 1, 2020, but has been moved up to August 21, 2020.
Alice Through the Looking Glass
“After slipping through a mirror, Alice finds herself back in Underland with the White Queen, the Cheshire Cat, the White Rabbit, Tweedledee and Tweedledum. Her friends tell her that the Mad Hatter is in a funk over the loss of his family. Hoping to save his loved ones, Alice steals the Chronosphere from Time to travel into the past. While there, she encounters the younger Hatter and the evil Red Queen.”
Alice Through the Looking Glass was originally intended to join the roster on July 11, 2022, but will now be available to stream on Disney+ beginning August 28, 2020.
