Despite hours and hours worth of content to enjoy, there’s one show in particular that fans are craving to re-watch, “The Greatest Showman.”
What is “The Greatest Showman” about?
Growing up in the early 1800s, P.T. Barnum displays a natural talent for publicity and promotion, selling lottery tickets by age 12. After trying his hands at various jobs, P.T. turns to show business to indulge his limitless imagination, rising from nothing to create the Barnum & Bailey circus. Featuring catchy musical numbers, exotic performers and daring acrobatic feats, Barnum’s mesmerizing spectacle soon takes the world by storm to become the greatest show on Earth.
The film stars Hugh Jackman, Zac Efron, Michelle Williams, Rebecca Ferguson, Zendaya, and Keala Settle.
Is “The Greatest Showman” Disney?
Technically, yes. “The Greatest Showman” falls under the 20th Century Fox (renamed 20th Century Studios) brand which is now apart of The Walt Disney Company after Disney acquired Fox in 2019. “The Greatest Showman” is one of the many properties that fall under the Disney umbrella due to the acquisition with Fox.
Is The “The Greatest Showman” available on Disney Plus?
“The Greatest Showman” has definitely been one of the most requested shows for Disney Plus. After all, it was a huge box office success so naturally, fans are looking to rewatch the movie. Disney answered the request and the movie is now available in the US, Canada, Australia, and New Zealand.
Disney doesn’t typically share their plans on when a specific title will be added to the streaming service. New content is usually announced during the middle of the month for the following month. This gives us our best indication on what’s coming to Disney+ in the near future.
When is “The Greatest Showman” coming to Disney Plus UK?
Disney hasn’t announced an exact release date on when “The Greatest Showman” will be coming to Disney+ in the UK and Ireland.
It’s difficult to say exactly when the movie might be arriving on Disney+. Disney has added other 20th Century Studios movies such as the Ice Age franchise and “The Call of the Wild” in the UK, and with the movie available in other regions, it would appear it’s just a matter of time.
As the movie was such a huge success, it’s possible that the rights have been sold to a different company. If that is true, once that contract is expired, the movie would likely appear on Disney+.
It could also be something just that Disney hasn’t simply put the movie on Disney+ yet. Covid-19 has had a huge impact on Disney+ Originals with many delays, and “The Greatest Showman” will be a big addition whenever it arrives. It makes sense for Disney to hold back some titles to spread out content and have a few major titles each month.
