Let’s get this new year started off proper with new titles coming to Disney+ this coming month! What are you most looking forward to?
Emphasis on Disney+
With the park experience unstable right now, The Walt Disney Company is turning to entertainment and streaming to beef up revenue. In October, Disney CEO, Bob Chapek, shared that the Walt Disney Company would place much more emphasis on Disney+ in the upcoming year. During the Investor Day, we definitely saw this shift with great new content announced.
Chapek shared, “The tremendous success we’ve achieved across our unique portfolio of streaming services, with more than 137 million subscriptions worldwide, has bolstered our confidence in our acceleration toward a DTC-first business model.”
With both the live-action Mulan and Pixar’s Soul going straight to Disney+ instead of the theater along with the endless titles presented during Investor Day, us Disney fans are in for a treat.

Marvel fans get ready for the highly anticipated premiere of WandaVision! It is the first live-action series from Marvel Studios streaming exclusively on Disney+.

WandaVision – Episode 3
Not the momma! The show Dinosaurs was created by Jim Henson, the creator of the Muppets. Unfortunately, Henson passed away before the show aired, but his creative influence and comedic flair are definitely seen in this family friendly comedy.
In case you didn’t grow up in the 90’s, the premise for the show is that the Dinosaur family is living in the modern age and they live with all of the modern conveniences. The comedic twist is that the Dinosaur family is living in the modern age, while the only humans are the cavemen who are considered pets and wild animals.
The Incredible Dr. Pol
Ramona and Beezus
Texas Storm Squad
Beyond the Clouds – Finale
