Disney Plus is hitting Europe a week early on March 24

The streaming service that brought us Baby Yoda is coming to the region sooner than expected.


Baby Yoda and Mando's adventures are coming to Europe early.


If you've been eagerly awaiting The Mandalorian in western Europe, you're in luck. Disney Plus is launching there a week early. Disney said Tuesday that the streaming service will hit the UK, Ireland, France, Germany, Italy, Spain, Austria and Switzerland on March 24. It was previously set to launch March 31.

In the UK, it'll cost £6 ($7.80) a month, or £60 a year. Elsewhere in the region, it's 7 euros a month, or 70 euros a year. 

Beyond those places, Disney Plus will come to Belgium, Portugal, the "Nordics" -- presumably Norway, Sweden, Finland, Denmark and Iceland -- and "additional western Europe markets" in summer 2020, the company said. 

Disney's Netflix rival includes a vast library from the company's media empire, including content from its own 83-year back catalog, Fox, Pixar, Marvel, Lucasfilm and National Geographic. Among its original series, Disney Plus' big star so far is The Mandalorian, an original Star Wars series that introduced meme phenomenon Baby Yoda. The season finale aired in December, and its second season is slated for this fall.
