The Hollywood studio is offering customers the chance to sign up to the service for £49.99 for a year, a discount on the £59.99 regular annual subscription price.

United Kingdom users will now be able to buy a Disney+ Annual Pass during a pre-sale event that will run until March 23. As such, if you've been patiently waiting for Disney+ to launch in the United Kingdom, watching on enviously as those States-side tuck in to a smorgasbord of content like Thor: Ragnarok, The Mandalorian, The Simpsons, Star Wars: The Last Jedi, Guardians of the Galaxy, Aladdin, Pirates of the Caribbean, 10 Things I Hate About You, Wall-E and the excellent, Olaf-starring Frozen, then it makes ideal sense to lock your access in now for the cheapest price going.

However, European subscribers will still gain access to Disney's huge catalog, along with Pixar, Marvel, Lucasfilm, and National Geographic content, as well as Disney's original programming and more new releases that roll out throughout the year.

According to a new study of United Kingdom adults by consultant Goldmedia, the service has the potential for a rapid start in the country.

Luigi's Mansion 3 and The Strechers , both of which are also now available, will also be playable at the Nintendo booth. This will be accompanied by photo op areas with people dressed as Isabelle, Tom Nook, and K.K.

Subscribers will be able to stream Disney+ on almost all major mobile and connected TV devices at launch, including gaming consoles, streaming media players, and smart TVs. As many as 10% of respondents said that they would cancel another service in favour of the Disney streamer. It reported 28.6 million Disney Plus subs as of February 3.

Despite such a successful opening for Disney+, the company is hesitant to adjust its target of 60-90 million by 2024. In that vein, the DecisionData report also reveals that Netflix search interest has not only remained steady since the Disney+ launch, but has gotten a slight increase and remains considerably higher than that of Disney+ search interest. "[This is] not in any way [to] pour cold water on them, because we know that those brands are strong in the markets, and this product is already working".

The company has confirmed that Disney Plus originals like Jon Favreau's "The Mandalorian", the Star Wars-set live action series that was the breakout hit of the initial batch, will be available in global territories.
