Welcome to the first Disney + day. It’s part birthday – Disney +, the streaming service, has just turned two years old – and part looks to the future, with the company showing dozens of shows coming online now, in the coming weeks and in the coming months and years.

It’s also a definite reminder from Disney + – which just announced that it now has more than 118 million paid subscribers worldwide – that the first two years were just the beginning. And that there is much more to come.
