It seems like only yesterday that we said goodbye to Oscar Isaac’s Moon Knight accent and Obi-Wan Kenobi is keeping the Disney+ marquee alive, but the MCU is heading straight back to our screens in June with something very exciting in Ms. Marvel. Iman Vellani will play the titular teenage hero in the series, which looks to have a very different feel to Moon Knight and other recent Marvel outings.

On the movie front, there’s the raucous LGBT+ comedy Fire Island and a sequel to one of the original films that helped to launch Disney+ in the UK back in 2020 in the shape of Hollywood Stargirl.

Original movies coming to Disney+ UK in June 2022

Fire Island (3 June)

Located just off the shores of Long Island, Fire Island has become a rite of passage vacation spot for the LGBT+ community in America. This comedy directed by Andrew Ahn loosely transposes the action of Jane Austen’s classic novel Pride and Prejudice to this very different locale. Joel Kim Booster leads the cast as Noah and was also responsible for penning the script.

Hollywood Stargirl (3 June)

Stargirl was among the titles to be a part of Disney+ when it first launched in the UK in March 2020, within a week or two of the country entering its first COVID-19 lockdown. Fronted by likeable young music star Grace VanderWaal, the movie was a traditional, slushy YA drama but one that came with real heart and a sense of fun.

Two years later, sequel Hollywood Stargirl sees Julia Hart return to the director’s chair, adding some A-list names to the cast. Judy Greer plays Stargirl’s mother Ana, who relocates with her daughter to Los Angeles when she gets a job on a movie set. This gives Stargirl a whole new community into which she must try to fit.

The Antetokounmpo family arrive in America and find themselves facing the threat of deportation, but when three of the family’s children discover an aptitude on the court, they find a glimmer of hope that becomes something special.

Trevor: The Musical (24 June)

Only Murders in the Building S2 (two episodes on 28 June, then weekly)

In the wake of the final moments of the first season, the three hobbyist investigators at the centre of Only Murders in the Building are now implicated in a murder themselves — and there’s even a podcast about them. This comedy-mystery show was a surprise package for many when it appeared last year and so its renewal for a second season was inevitable. Central trio Steve Martin, Martin Short and Selena Gomez reprise their roles.
