Has Disney Plus stopped free trials in the UK in 2022?

There's plenty to enjoy in Mickey's vault.

Trying to find something to watch on the ever-increasing mountains of streaming services is always a bit of a nightmare. Well, Disney+ has you covered, whether you're a kid or an adult.

Forget Netflix and Amazon Prime Video for a second, because the House of Mouse has some of the best movies and TV shows to keep you entertained this month.

Whether you're after all things Marvel, a gritty drama, a Star Wars fan or just fancy rewatching some of the Disney classics, there's only one place to watch it all.

With instant smash-hits like The Book of Boba Fett and Marvel's Eternals available to watch now, as well as the likes of Dopesick and Pam and Tommy, there really is something for everyone.

Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings, Free Guy, Black Widow, Cruella? All present and accounted for on the service. Then of course there's the absolutely incredibly full back catalogue of Disney classics we can watch over and over again like Mulan, Hercules, and The Hunchback of Notre Dame.

But what you really want to know is if you can get a cheaper monthly price for all this visual brilliance, or even get it for free. Read on, to find out.

Is the Disney Plus free trial still available?

Unfortunately, the Disney Plus free trial is no longer available.

On the launch of the streaming service back in March 2020, Disney Plus did offer a free week to celebrate its start. However, that was only available for the first month.

However, it's still cheaper than some of its rivals, including Amazon Prime Video and Netflix.

If you want to sign up now, you'll pay £7.99 a month or £79.90 a year (which is a total saving of 15% - or two months free).

That's not to say there won't be other offers in the future either. In November 2021, the service dropped prices during Disney+ Day in November 2021, where prices fell to £1.99 for a month.

So keep your eyes peeled and we'll update you whenever there is another sale or price drop available!

What is Disney+?

We'd be shocked if you've never heard of it, but just in case you've been living under a Mickey Mouse-proof rock for the past year and a half, there's now a streaming service that holds all of Disney's great movies and TV shows throughout its history, ready for you to stream at your leisure for a monthly fee.

It's your one-stop shop to enjoy everything Pixar, Marvel, Star Wars and National Geographic, as well as the huge library of Disney original content like Sleeping Beauty, The Little Mermaid and Tarzan.

To sweeten the deal even further, Mickey himself (probably) later added a channel on the service called Star, which holds the best of the rest from FX, 20th Century Studios and 20th Television, including 75 hit TV shows and 270 films that are a bit more adult, with more being added monthly.

It's also the main home for Hulu content in the UK, as we don't have that service over here. So in a way, you're getting two services for the price of one!

Within this section, you'll find shows like The X-Files, 24, Lost, Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Scrubs, My Name is Earl and Grey's Anatomy. As for the movies, there are the Oscar winners The Favourite and The Grand Budapest Hotel, blockbusters such as Deadpool 2 and Dawn of the Planet of the Apes, and classics like Pretty Woman and Moulin Rouge.

It's also home to How I Met Your Father, Lily James and Sebastian Stan's Pam And Tommy, and crime thriller Big Sky.

When it comes to movies, Disney Plus also has you covered, with theatrical releases often making its way onto the service within a few months of being in the cinema.

It also houses straight to stream movies that have proven to be massive talking points. Most recently, the Oscar-winning Encanto was released on the service before a limited cinematic run. Now you can't go on TikTok without being told 'We Don't Talk About Bruno'.

In March, the Sandra Oh led Pixar movie Turning Red also made its debut on the site, which has also melted viewers hearts in a way only Pixar can do.

"Turning Red stands proudly as one of Pixar's most diverse movies to date and thanks to Shi and its cast, it offers buckets of charm and beautiful visuals wrapped in a heartfelt and entertaining coming-of-age story," our review read... and you know you can trust us!

So, for *just* under £8 a month, you can enjoy more than 500 TV shows and movies across the entire library. That number is ever-increasing thanks to titles like Hamilton, The One and Only Ivan, Artemis Fowl, Mulan, WandaVision and The Mandalorian, with Falcon and the Winter Soldier, Loki, plus Marvel's What If…? and new shows and movies are constantly being added.
