Since the debut of Star in February, Disney Plus UK has grown into a more varied and interesting streaming service. Yes, it's where you tune in to watch WandaVision and The Falcon and Winter Soldier every Friday – but it's also entered our general streaming rotation as a movie destination. In May 2021, the service is getting even better, with more originals, and some key favourites from TV and cinema.

As well as marking the debut of Star Wars show The Bad Batch, a long-awaited spin-off of The Clone Wars, the service is getting a bunch more of ESPN's acclaimed 30 For 30 documentary films. You'll also get to enjoy all five seasons of Buffy spin-off show Angel in May, and movies like Unbreakable, Glass, (500) Days of Summer and train-based action movie Unstoppable. 

Also coming out of the archives this month are all seven seasons of New Girl starring Zooey Deschanel, and the acclaimed 2006 film Little Big Sunshine. New or continuing Star originals this month include the series Rebel starring Katey Sagal (sadly it's nothing to do with Star Wars), Dollface, Grown-ish, Filthy Rich, Next and Big Sky. Marvel fans also get to enjoy the debut of animated comedy MODOK, which begins rolling out episodes weekly on May 21 – shortly after its US debut on May 10. 

Here's everything coming to Disney Plus UK in May, including stuff branded under the adult-friendly Star banner. Note that 'S' stands for season number and 'E' stands for episode number in the list below.
