The Muppets (Kermit, Joe the Legal Weasel, Miss Piggy, Fozzie, and Animal) featured in a 2020 promotional art piece for the service.

Disney+ is a subscription-based video streaming service owned by The Walt Disney Company, launched on November 12, 2019. The service offers original and library content from Disney and its various subsidiaries, including Pixar, Marvel, Lucasfilm, 20th Century Fox, and National Geographic.

Various Muppet movies, series and shorts are available on the platform (see below), packaged as part of "The Muppets Collection." The at-launch titles were first revealed as part of Disney+'s soft launch in the Netherlands on September 12, 2019. The titles were confirmed through a thread of consecutive posts on the Disney+ Twitter on October 14, 2019. These titles debuted when the service launched while additional titles and episodes continued to be added after the initial launch.

Additionally, a Muppet short-form series, Muppets Now, was developed for Disney+ but was reworked and released as traditional half-hour episodes on the platform in 2020. Another project, Muppets Live Another Day, was reported to also be in development for the platform but was ultimately scrapped. An episode of the anthology series Prop Culture focused on The Muppet Movie, and a segment of Disney Insider briefly mentioned the Regal Eagle Smokehouse. The Jim Henson Company-produced Earth to Ned premiered on the platform in 2020 and was the focus of an episode of Disney Insider as well.

Several titles include bonus feature "extras" along with the main title ― including Doc Hopper's Commercial, outtakes of Kermit riding a bike, and Jim Frawley's Camera Tests on The Muppet Movie; the deleted song "When Love Is Gone" on The Muppet Christmas Carol; multiple deleted scenes on The Muppets; and a blooper reel and "On-Set with Walter" featurette on Muppets Most Wanted.
