While (most of) the world stays indoors due to coronavirus, many of us have been whiling the time away watching TV shows and movies online through our various streaming platforms. Unfortunately, one such service which is just around the corner from launch in Ireland has batted away any rumours of bringing their launch date forward.

Disney+ has taken to Twitter to tell fans that nope, contrary to popular belief, they will not be launching their service ahead of schedule. They tweeted: "We hear you. As much as we’d love to, we can’t bring forward the launch of Disney+ in the UK. Less than 8 days to go… Take care [love heart]."

Disney did announce however, taking the world-wide situation into account, that they would be releasing 'Frozen 2' earlier than expected onto the streaming provider.

Due to launch on March 24, the rumour mill was running overtime that Disney+ would be releasing their streaming service in Ireland and the UK ahead of schedule. With the world in the current state it's in, the ability to stream pretty much every episode of 'The Simpsons', or a feel-good Pixar movie was what we were looking forward to most this week.

Unfortunately, we'll just have to continue to be patient once again, and wait until the original arrival date next Tuesday. In case you haven't already, be sure to check out the full list of Disney+ titles that will be available from launch, as well as the best TV shows to begin streaming once it arrives on our shores.
