Nomadland is coming to Disney+’s new channel Star this spring.

The drama, which was the big winner at last week’s Golden Globes, stars Frances McDormand as Fern, a woman who rejects conventional society following the economic collapse of a company town in rural Nevada.

While the film will be available in UK cinemas when they are able to open, it was announced on Thursday (4 March) that Nomadland will also stream on Star, Disney’s newly launched adult-focused channel, on 30 April.

Unlike new releases such as Mulan and Raya and the Last Dragon, which Disney+ subscribers paid a premium one-off fee to watch on release, Nomadland will be readily available for all UK members.

During Sunday (28 February) night’s Golden Globes, Nomadland was named Best Motion Picture – Drama. Chloé Zhao also won for Best Director for the film, making her only the second woman ever to be awarded the prize.

Star launched on Disney+ in February, with content from the likes of Disney Television Studios, FX, 20th Century Studios and 20th Television.
