Even though the latest Pixar movie only came out in theaters a few weeks ago, you can watch Lightyear online right now. All you need to see it is a membership to the Disney Plus streaming service (opens in new tab) – subscribers can stream Lightyear at no extra charge.
Because it’s an exclusive to that platform, you won’t be able to watch Lightyear online anywhere else without buying it outright (in other words, don’t expect the film to drop on Netflix any time soon). But on the plus side, it’s available in super-sharp 4K resolution so that the already impressive animation looks its best.

So, how much is it going to cost you to watch Lightyear online? We’ve got a breakdown of all the best Disney Plus sign-up deals here (including any available bundles that’ll save you money in the long run, not to mention the cheapest options that we’d recommend). Jump right into the action by clicking on your region.
However, we’d suggest prioritizing the single monthly membership. Short of grabbing a free subscription via phone contracts like those with Verizon in the USA (opens in new tab) or O2 in the UK (opens in new tab), it’s the cheapest option and can be cancelled whenever you like. That means you can stream Lightyear and bounce before you’re charged for a second month.
Regardless of where you buy, don’t worry – you won’t be spending much more than you would for a couple of takeaway coffees. That means you can stream Lightyear without breaking the bank. Which you’ll want to, by the way. Our Lightyear review says that it’s “a fun adventure with animation that sucks your eyeballs from their sockets”.
