Best new movies and TV series on Disney+ UK: April 2024

Each month, new films and TV shows are added to Disney+‘s UK library. Here’s Eliza Janssen’s recommendations for the titles most worth watching. Scroll down for the full list of everything arriving on the platform.

Top picks

Wish (April 3)

A classic, vaguely medieval fairytale with songs and talking animals, Wish kinda came and went from cinemas without too much excitement. It might find more appreciation amongst its old-school Disney musical pals, on the studio’s streaming service. Ariana DeBose voices our hero, whose generous wish that everyone’s wishes might come true causes chaos—in the form of a squishy, anarchic little star landing on earth and taking her request very literally.

The Greatest Hits (April 12)

We all have a mental playlist of the songs that changed our lives: the ballad that got us through our first breakup, the banger our parents always played in the car, etc. In this tuneful rom-com, Lucy Boynton’s character discovers that certain songs can literally send her back in time, reuniting her with memories of her last boyfriend (our new Superman David Corenswet). Meanwhile, a promising new love interest crops up in her future…but will she be too busy vibing out to her nostalgic tracks to notice?

FEUD: Capote Vs. The Swans (April 17)

“Tell me everything”, Tom Hollander squeaks as iconic mid-century scribe Truman Capote, in the trailer for Ryan Murphy’s latest scandal-obsessed miniseries. Following on from season one’s depiction of the battle between fading stars Joan Crawford and Bette Davis, season two delves into 1960s New York high society, where Capote infiltrated and then exposed a community of wealthy yet deeply unhappy socialites. The luminous female cast includes Naomi Watts, Demi Moore, Chloë Sevigny, Diane Lane, Calista Flockhart and Molly Ringwald, as the inner circle of women who Capote burned in his scathing literary take-downs.
