Disney Plus Day has arrived – which means there's a whole load of new content available on the streaming service. Most notable: Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings and Jungle Cruise are now both available to watch at no extra cost to your normal subscription, so you can enjoy Marvel's latest and The Rock's adventure from the comfort of your living room. 

There's still much more to come. As well as the stuff that's already been made available on Disney Plus, we can expect various new announcements in a set of live streams due to happen later today. We've already had a leak, showcasing a behind-the-scenes look at the Obi-Wan Kenobi series. And there's more to come from Marvel, Star Wars, Pixar, and more. Here's what time that all kicks off on Disney Plus Day.
