There’s a lot of exciting content coming to the Disney+ streaming service this week, including the Marvel movie that made the Marvel Cinematic Universe what it is today. An X-Men Disney+ release is a big deal, but it’s far from the only film coming to the service this week.

Surprise extra movie for US Disney+ users

Prince of PErsia Disney Plus

US subscribers only will also be treated to 2010’s Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time. The Jake Gyllenhaal-led film tried to be the next Pirates of the Caribbean, but never quite made it.

Still, it’s a run romp with some epic fight scenes, so it’s nice to see it on the streaming platform.

Other launches this week include:

  • Hidden Kingdoms of China
  • Howard
  • Star Wars Galaxy’s Edge: Adventure Awaits 
  • UFO Europe: The Untold Stories (S1)
  • One Day At Disney – Episode 136 – “Ryan Meinerding: Marvel Studios Creative Director”
  • Disney Family Sundays – Series Finale Episode 140 – “Goofy: Pencil Cup” 
  • Pixar In Real Life – Episode 110 – “WALL·E: BnL Pop-up Shop” 

X-Men Disney+ Release gives 20th Century Fox movies a new home

Disney‘s acquisition of 20th Century Fox left the X-Men films a little out in the cold, relegated to their own universe. It also stands to reason that they’ll be unable to be shown on Amazon Prime and Netflix soon, as is the case with most Disney owned properties.

However, it’s comforting to see much of the line up (with the exception of more violent ventures like Logan and Deadpool) given a home at last. Hopefully the missing X-Men movies like The Last Stand will come after the summer, though there’s been no word on that yet.

And as for the New Mutants? The official word is still that it’ll get a theatrical release, though a ‘leaked’ Disney Plus release date supposedly debunks that.
