After the official launch that was supposed to coincide with the IPL on March 29 got delayed, Disney+ Hotstar didn't make us wait further for its arrival. It’s late, nevertheless welcome, especially 'coz the launch was announced by making The Mandalorian live. For the uninitiated, The Mandalorian is the first ever live action series in the Star Wars franchise. Directed by Jon Favreau, it explores the events five years post Return of the Jedi. In fact, now the perfect time to stream some of the Disney classics for kids and take a break from them in this lockdown period. Having more platforms loaded with quality content is every self-confessed-lockdown-warrior’s woe, and this is reason enough to rejoice. Though the two plans – Disney+Hostar VIP and Disney+Hotstar Premium – are priced at 399 and 299, existing Hotstar subscribers can start streaming Disney+ content without having to pay anything extra. Disney favourites like The Jungle Book, Toy Story, and classics like The Lion King are the bonus. You and your kids can master the tunes of The Bare Necessities and perform together at their next school Annual Day.
