What movies and TV shows are coming to Disney Plus in Australia? It’s a question we’ve all been pondering for weeks. As Netflix has shown, just because a title is available in the US doesn’t mean it will be appearing Down Under.

Will we be getting the full Star Wars trilogy? What about The Simpsons? And how many Disney Classics will be making the cut? Today, Disney Australia finally let the mouse out of the bag and the news is good. Here are the chief titles that will be available in Australia on day one.

The list below isn’t exhaustive. Rather, it represents the cream that Disney Plus has to offer. There are plenty of additional movies and TV shows on the service too. (Indeed, according to Disney, Australia will be receiving over 600 films and 7000 TV show episodes at launch!) Don’t forget to sign up to Disney+, either.

Without further ado, here are the highlights for the Australian version of Disney+:

And there you have it! Quite a solid lineup, I’m sure you’ll agree. We’re particularly excited about on-demand access to The Simpsons seasons 1 through 29. (This is something that will surely irk Foxtel, which adopted Bart as its unofficial mascot for years.)

Believe the hype - Disney Plus is a bona fide Netflix killer. Boasting thousands of individual titles (much more than expected), premium features at entry-level pricing and some the world's most popular IP, it is set to shake up the local streaming market in a big way.</p> <p>We've been playing around with the platform since yesterday and so far we're mightily impressed. Here are ten things we love about the service (and a couple of things we don't.)
