Disney+ Adds The King’s Man

Kingsman prequel The King’s Man will stream on Disney+ under the Star banner from February 23.

Kingsman: The Secret Service and Kingsman: The Golden Circle already can be streamed on Disney+ in 4K and Dolby Vision, so the same should be true of The King’s Man.

The original is limited to 5.1 audio but Golden Circle is in Dolby Atmos (or as close as you’ll get to it on a streaming service).

The Disney+ premiere coincides with The King’s Man’s 4K-UHD release in Australia and presumably here on the same day, although it’s not yet available for pre-order from NZ retailers.

It stars Ralph Fiennes, Gemma Arterton, Rhys Ifans, Matthew Goode and Tom Hollander in the story of one man’s race against time to stop a collection of history’s worst tyrants and criminal masterminds gathering to plot a war to wipe out millions.

Disney+ also has released the first trailer for the comedy series, How I Met Your Father.

The How I Met Your Mother spin-off will open with two episodes on March 9, with new eps to stream weekly.

Set in the near future, it revolves around Sophie (Hilary Duff) telling her son how she met his father in 2021, when Sophie and her close friends are figuring out who they are, what they want out of life, and how to fall in love in the age of dating apps and limitless options.

    Good news. I’ll be watching it.

  2. Also West Side Story is coming next month I believe March 3rd. As far as retail, as it’s Fox if you want it, you will need to look online as Disney no longer distributing physical media in NZ, which is why no Shang Chi, Eternals or Encanto discs. So no Disney, Fox or Marvel physical media releases. However, they are still being released in Australia.

  3. Thanks, Mark. It’s a sad continuation of the erosion of disc support here since Roadshow closed its NZ operation and serviced the market from Australia. Blu-ray releases were the first casualty, save for the biggest WB titles. When BBC distribution switched from Roadshow to Universal Pictures NZ, I was hopeful this would improve supply but Doctor Who fans still have to source Blu-ray editions from Australia while even a prestigious BBC title as high profile as Seven Worlds One Planet was DVD-only. You can’t beat the convenience of streaming but even the best 4K streams from Disney and Apple can’t match the specs of 4K discs.

  4. You should be able to buy the discs from Amazon AU.

  5. That’s correct, in the last month I have found myself dealing mainly with Amazon AU and US helped with the fast delivery times as they’re using DHL at the moment. The US took 4 days for my order of Dune and Scream 4K UHD and two days from AU for my Eternals and Shang Chi order. As far as Universal I note that Last night in Soho is marked as a DVD and Blu-ray only release whereas the US and UK are getting the 4K disc as well. I ended up with the 4K Apple release, just for the visual pop of Edgar Wright’s use of colour. I’ll go for the 4K release maybe at a later date. The reason for Disney pulling out I was told by JB HiFi was that Disney are pushing Disney+ as they have done the same in Latin America, with Fox and the more challenging titles moving to their Star channel.

  6. I finally bought my first two UHD blu-ray disks which were Ready Player One and Free Guy! And yes on Amazon AU as it was cheaper and on sale. And I can’t even play them as I have no 4K player! At least I have well over 25Tb worth of 4K movies alone on my hard drives.

  7. Same – 4K disc but no 4K player. I’m only buying 4Ksets that include a BD. But many new releases are 4k UHD only.:(
