TV Shows

Disney+ features content derived from Disney properties like Pixar (cartoons), Marvel (superhero movies and TV), National Geographic (documentaries) and Lucasfilm (the Star Wars franchise). In certain territories, it also hosts content from other studios under its Star brand name.

Original productions on Disney+ include The Mandalorian spinoff and plans for additional live-action Star Wars shows starring Diego Luna, Hayden Christensen and Rosario Dawson as Rogue One prequel characters from Rogue One prequel characters in Rogue One prequel Rogue One prequel Rogue One prequel Rogue One prequel characters Rogue One prequel Rogue One characters; another series centers around Lando from Solo.

Disney+ initially launched as a family-oriented streaming service, but is gradually adding more mature programming, including some Marvel shows previously found on Netflix like She-Hulk: Attorney at Law and The Punisher that can now be found there as well as being locked behind parental controls for added parental controls protection.

4K Streaming

While most Disney Plus content is offered in HD resolution, there is also some 4K content that may require a high-speed internet connection to stream successfully.

Disney Plus automatically selects the best possible video quality that your device and internet service can support, with an option to reduce resolution to save data; this may result in less crisp and sharp videos.

Disney Plus provides access to classic animated films like Toy Story series, Beauty and the Beast, Fantasia and Pinocchio as well as Marvel superhero action in Star Wars and an array of Dolby Atmos content.

Parental Controls

While Disney Plus provides some parental controls, they may not provide as comprehensive a solution as Netflix or YouTube do – making it easier for children to access age-inappropriate material that could cause them confusion, fear or trauma.

There are various ways parents can protect their profiles from being compromised by other users, including setting a four-digit PIN that protects it. To do this, launch the app and tap on each profile icon on the main screen.

Parents can also control content ratings for each profile to prevent accessing R-rated and TV-MA content. Should a child attempt to alter his/her rating without parental approval, an email will be sent directly to them from their parent account holder.


Subtitles can be an invaluable aid for those with hearing impairment or who don’t speak the native tongue of a film or show, yet can become distracting and irritating when automatically on while watching Disney Plus videos. Luckily, there’s an easy way to turn them off!

Process differs slightly for mobile and web platforms; but generally speaking, start streaming your video, tap once to bring up options and information, select subtitle language of interest from dropdown list, font style/size adjustments as needed as well as change interface language if necessary from Profile Page.
