If you’ve ever wanted to know what’s on Disney Plus in the United Kingdom, South Korea and the Netherlands, you may be wondering how to change your Disney Plus region to see what the rest of the world has to offer that’s not in the United States.

Disney Plus launched in November 2019 as a streaming service for The Walt Disney Company, the parent company of brands like Disney, Pixar, Marvel, Star Wars and National Geographic. Since its launch, Disney Plus—which kicked off its service with two original shows, The Mandalorian and High School Musical: The Musical: The Series—has produced dozens of original programs, including Star Wars series like The Bad Batch, The Book of Boba-Fett and Obi-Wan Kenobi; Marvel series like WandaVision, The Falcon and the Winter Soldier, Loki and Hawkeye; and Pixar series like Monsters at Work.

As of 2022, Disney Plus is available in more than 60 countries, including Canada, Australia, Japan and Puerto Rico. In January 2022, the service also reported that it has more than 129.8 million subscriber across the world. “When I got my job … I saw a world where technology has enabled storytelling to proliferate much more and there is much more consumer choice,” Walt Disney Company CEO Bob Iger said in a 2019 interview with the University of Pennsylvania on why he wanted to launch Disney Plus. “Quality and brands matter more than ever. That essentially means don’t let the economy get in the way of making something great, don’t let time get in the way of making something great. Don’t be limited by the amount of time it takes or the amount of money. Greatness is a necessity and an imperative.” He continued, “Consumers have a habit of going right to brands that you know because that brand has values. It creates almost a chemical reaction inside you if I say Nike, or Apple or Mercedes Benz or Pixar or Star Wars. There’s a comfort level because you know you’re going to be buying something that you know and trust.”

With tens of millions of subscribers across the world, it’s understandable why fans are curious about what’s on Disney Plus in other countries to make the most of their subscription. So how can you change your Disney Plus region? Read on for how to change your Disney Plus region to take advantage of everything the service has to offer across the world.
