There’s plenty new on Disney Plus this October, but no prizes for guessing what we’re most looking forward to. Yep, The Mandalorian season 2 lands this October and is joined by a heaving list of other shows and movies arriving over the coming weeks. We’ve got them all waiting for you down below.

Among the other highlights this week is another helping of mutant goodness with X2, one of the best X-Men movies ever. Alongside that is Maleficent, one of the darkest Disney entries in recent years, as is the entirety of The Simpsons season 31.

Plus, for those across the pond, there’s a real treat. New on Disney Plus UK in October is Pixar’s Onward, an unfortunate casualty that was caught in lockdown limbo back in March. Chances are, you didn’t get to see it in cinema – so now it’s on Disney Plus. 

For all that and much, much more, here’s what’s the full list of what’s new on Disney Plus in October.

I'm the Senior Entertainment Writer here at GamesRadar+, focusing on news, features, and interviews with some of the biggest names in film and TV. On-site, you'll find me marveling at Marvel and providing analysis and room temperature takes on the newest films, Star Wars and, of course, anime. Outside of GR, I love getting lost in a good 100-hour JRPG, Warzone, and kicking back on the (virtual) field with Football Manager. My work has also been featured in OPM, FourFourTwo, and Game Revolution.
