According to a news release, Star will double the amount of content available to watch on Disney+, bringing TV shows and movies from Disney Television Studios, FX Productions and 20th Century Studios to the streaming service. Movies like Deadpool 1 & 2 will come to Disney+ via Star, along with shows like How I Met Your Mother and The X-Files.
Star might be familiar in Asia, as the brand has distributed tons of series and movies over here - but it’s making its global debut for other countries in February. The very first Star Original will premiere on Disney+, a thriller named Big Sky from creator David E. Kelley (Big Little Lies, Boston Legal). Other old favourites come with Star too, such as 24, Lost, Desperate Housewives, Prison Break, Atlanta, Blackish and more.
