Can we have a week off from work just start watching all of the great content that’s going to be on Disney+? Starting tomorrow (November 12th) Disney+ is launching and I’m not sure I’ve ever been so excited about TV.
There are over 600 titles coming – lots of the back catalog of Disney movies (including Pixar, Star Wars, and Marvel), as well as new TV shows that will be starting. In addition there will be other new shows which have been announced but won’t be starting tomorrow. They’ll be coming sometime within the next year.
You can find a full list of everything coming on various websites like this one, but I wanted to share a little bit about what I’m personally most excited to watch and why! Lots of people mention the Mandalorian as a favorite upcoming show, but there’s so much more than just that.
Available on November 12th:
The World According to Jeff Goldblum
Apparently Jeff Goldblum will just give cool random information and history of everyday objects (like ice cream). I love learning new things and Jeff Goldblum is great.
This is an original Christmas movie starring Anna Kendrick and Bill Hader. I’m a sucker for a good Christmas movie and with the two lead actors I have confidence it will be entertaining!
One of my favorite Marvel movies, I’m definitely looking forward to watching this one again.
In truth I am excited that all of Disney’s animated movies will be there, but Brother Bear made the list in particular only because it’s the next film I have to watch for my “Thoughts on Disney Movies” series.
Another Marvel favorite, Jason never got around to seeing this one so I’m excited for him to finally watch it. Plus I am thinking about doing a Captain Marvel costume for my marathon in Disney so a re-watch definitely seems in order!
Elena of Avalor
I know this show is meant for little kids, but now that I’ve met Elena a few times in the parks I’m curious about learning more about her. Plus I think it’s pretty cool that there’s a Hispanic princess.
Lady and the Tramp (2019)
I’ve found the live action Disney movies based on animated films have been pretty hit or miss, but I’m still going to watch this to see what I think.
The Great Muppet Caper
I absolutely love the Muppets (and was pretty upset when I found out another Muppet series by Josh Gad which was supposed to be on Disney+ was cancelled). The Great Muppet Caper was my absolute favorite growing up.
Yes, as a Star Wars fan I’m definitely going to be watching this and I think it’s going to be the top one that everyone is talking about – so I need to stay in the loop!
Host and producer Kristen Bell reunites groups of adults who once performed together in their high school musicals – and gives them the chance to perform together in a show again. As someone who did a lot of theater growing up (and still tries to do community theater but I am finding less time and opportunity for it), I know this is going to hit me in the feels.
Forky Asks a Question
Forky asks “What is love? What is time? And of course, the deepest question of all, What is cheese? He explores all of these questions and more in a series of 10 shorts.” Given how hilarious the Forky character was in Toy Story 4, I think this will be entertaining.
Coming out after November 12th:
One Day at Disney (December 3rd, 2019)
A documentary that will take an inside look at the Disney company and the jobs of cast members all over the world.
Big Shot (no release date)
The description isn’t necessarily something that would intrigue me (“The show is the story of a temperamental college basketball coach who gets fired from his job and must take a teaching and coaching job at an elite all-girls private high school.”). But it’s starring John Stamos so I’m curious!
Obi-Wan Kenobi series (no release date)
A beloved character like Obi-Wan played by Ewan McGregor? I’m ready for this. No release date yet but they start filming in early 2020.
WandaVision (spring 2021)
We don’t know much about it yet, but I really enjoyed these two characters in the Marvel movies. It also been described as a “dramedy,” which means it will be both comedy and drama (probably my favorite genre of TV).
The Falcon and the Winter Soldier (Fall 2020)
Super curious about the fates of these two after Endgame, so I’ll be watching this one when it comes out.
Marvel What If…? (2021)
Each episode of this show will ask what if something happened differently in the Marvel universe… and then basically show us the alternate universe where that happened. Sounds really interesting.
Be Our Chef (spring 2020)
A cooking competition show that’s “Disney inspired.” The winner of the competition will have their dish added to a menu at the Disney parks. I am so here for this!
Monsters at Work (no release date)
A TV show featuring the monsters from Monsters Inc. after they switched from scaring to laughing. One of my favorite Pixar movies.
