Disney+ Free Trial
For an unknown period of time, Disney is offering a 7-day free trial of Disney+ that will allow you to jump in and watch Stargirl for as many times as you can cram into a week. Of course there’s plenty of other Disney, Marvel, Pixar and Star Wars offerings to enjoy as well.
Once the trial is complete you can decide whether to pay $6.99 a month to continue with Disney+ or cancel and pay nothing. Given the inexpensive price and great content and other Disney Originals to come, most folks will opt to signup.
Disney is also offering an option for $69.99 a year that drops the price down to $5.84 a month, over a dollar a month less than going month-to-month.
Disney+ Hulu ESPN+ Bundle Free Trial
There is also a $12.99 a month bundle option that includes Disney+, ESPN+ and the ad-supported version of Hulu. This deal is fantastic and many folks have already jumped in with both feet and endless hours of streaming options.
If you already have a Hulu account then you will receive a bill credit for each month that you’re subscribed to the bundle deal.
Look for the Disney+ app to show up on a variety of devices including Xbox and PlayStation gaming consoles; LG, Samsung and Sony TVs, and Amazon Fire boxes and Fire Sticks.
You’ll need to install the latest update to have the Disney+ app appear after registering your free trial and account.

Disney’s Stargirl is not to be confused with The CW Stargirl TV series that premieres next month. One is a coming-of-age story while the other is about becoming a superhero.
The official description for Stargirl reads, “…a tender and offbeat coming-of-age story based on the critically-acclaimed, New York Times’ best-selling young adult novel about an unassuming high schooler who finds himself inexplicably drawn to the free-spirited new girl, whose unconventional ways change how they see themselves…and their world.”
Stargirl is directed by Julia Hart from a screenplay by Kristin Hahn and Julia Hart & Jordan Horowitz.
The cast also includes Karan Brar, Maximiliano Hernandez, and Darby Stanchfield.
There is no indication that Stargirl will be receiving a physical DVD, Blu-ray or 4K UHD release at this time.
