When Disney+ launched in the United States last year, a number of titles were missing due to existing contracts with companies like Netflix, Starz and HBO. These titles could be found within the Disney+ app, with a release date. Some of those missing titles have had multiple release date changes and some were brought forward.
Over the past year, many of those films have now been added to Disney+, but there are still many which are due to arrive throughout 2021, so I’ve put together a list of the known movies that we know are coming to Disney+ in 2021. There obviously will be more movies added than in this list, along with new titles and Disney+ Originals.
Here is a list of movies that are coming to Disney+ in the United States:

The Pixar Story – 19th November 2021
The story of the pioneering computer animation studio Pixar, featuring contributions from the studio’s bosses and a host of actors who have lent their voices to their creations, including Tom Hanks. Films such as `Toy Story’ and `A Bug’s Life’ have led to the studio becoming one of the most consistently successful, both critically and financially, of recent years.
Unfortunately, some titles such as “Maleficent” and “Cinderella” also not only were added to Disney+ in 2020 but shortly later, removed again. Though they are expected to return to Disney+ soon. So it’s possible this might happen with some of these titles in 2021.
These titles are usually available to stream in other countries.
