Earlier this week, Disney unveiled the full list of films and TV shows that'll be available to watch on its brand new streaming service – and it had some surprising inclusions.

As expected, every Marvel, Pixar and Lucasfilm title will be available to stream exclusively via the platform, which is titled Disney+.

But, due to the merger with Fox earlier this year, it'll also be home to several things most people won't be expecting, including beloved 1990s romantic comedies and an acclaimed National Geographic documentary.

You can also find a full list of every single film and TV show joining Disney+ here.

Disney+ will launch in the US, Canada and the Netherlands this November, but its UK release has not yet been set.
