Disney+ will also arrive in Germany, France, Italy, Spain on the same date, having already soft-launched in the Netherlands.

So what this effectively means now, is that potential United Kingdom subscribers will have to wait almost half a year to see the hugely promising looking Star Wars: The Mandalorian TV show and attempt, in something of a futile fashion to avoid spoilers for that length of time.

Amazon today announced that Disney+ - the upcoming streaming service from Disney that'll be home to everything from Star Wars to every Marvel movie to, of course, Disney fare - will be available on Amazon Fire TV devices on launch day, November 12.

This shift is driven by the broadening of choice in the streaming landscape, with the likes of Apple TV, HBO Max and Disney+ joining the established likes of Netflix and Amazon.

Disney movies have earned more than £6.4bn in cinemas worldwide so far this year.

At the same time though, the entire back catalogue of Marvel, Star Wars, Pixar, and Disney movies will also be available, so if you really just want to veg out for the day with some content, you still can.

Amazon Fire TV users won't have to worry about missing out on Disney+ when it launches next week.

But Marvel boss Kevin Feige recently told Bloomberg that Marvel fans will need to watch the Disney+ shows to keep on top of plotlines for the Marvel films. All you'll have to do is say "Alexa, open Disney Plus", and she'll fire up Disney+ on your Fire TV. "I'm not sure we've actually acknowledged that before". The results reflect the consolidation of Disney's acquisition of Twenty-First Century Fox and its controlling stake in Hulu, Disney said.
