Grab the remote, grab the popcorn: Here’s all the original offerings that will be available. Get your friends and family involved, too, because you can watch any show on Disney+ remotely with loved ones through the GroupWatch feature.

WandaVision

The premise of this mini-series begins three weeks after the events of Avengers: Endgame ends, with newlywed couple Wanda Maximoff/Scarlet Witch (Elizabeth Olsen) and Vision (Paul Bettany)—thus WandaVision—living an idyllic suburban life, until things start to get interesting. A must-watch for Marvel fans.

Available to watch at launch on Feb 22. 

The Falcon and The Winter Soldier

Are we ready for the next Captain America? The premise for this six-episode series was set up when old Steve Rogers gave Sam Wilson aka The Falcon (Anthony Mackie) his Captain America shield. This show explores how Wilson figures out his way, alongside Bucky Barnes aka The Winter Soldier (Sebastian Stan) whom he has teamed up with for an action-packed adventure around the world.

Available on March 19.

The Mandalorian

What is a Mandalorian in the world of Star Wars? They’re basically a warrior race with distinctive armour, and this US$15 million-per-episode show begins five years after the fall of the Empire (as shown in the Return of the Jedi film) and follows Din Djarin, a lone Mandalorian bounty hunter in the outer reaches of the galaxy. It was highly reported that there is a “universe spoiler” in the first episode of season one, which will impact the Star Wars movies, and one more in the finale of season two.

Available to watch at launch on Feb 22.

Raya and the Last Dragon

The newest Disney Princess is Raya, the warrior princess of Kumandra, a fictional land that has been inspired by Southeast Asian cultures from Laos, Thailand, Cambodia, Vietnam, Myanmar, and Malaysia—but no, not Singapore. Raya (voiced by Kelly Marie Tran) embarks on the search for the last dragon, in order to unite the five diverse clans of her land. Crazy Rich Asians’ Awkwafina and Gemma Chan also lend their voices to this film. 

Released through Disney+ Premier Access alongside its theatrical release on the same day, March 5.  

Pixar Popcorn

Can’t get enough of your favourite Pixar films like Toy Story, Finding Nemo and Soul? Pixar Popcorn is a collection of bite-sized stories featuring familiar characters in entertaining and heartwarming all-new original stories, like the characters of Cars challenging each other to a parallel-parking contest. This idea was sparked during quarantine, where Pixar animators were challenged to create vignettes from popular films. While mini-shorts aren’t new to the studio, this is the first-ever that was entirely created in the animators’ homes.
