The best shows on Disney+ right now (December 2022)

Disney+ has been a part of the streaming market for just over three years now, and although the streaming service doesn’t have the sheer depth of original projects offered by established giants like Netflix, there’s still plenty of material to enjoy going into the end of 2022. Now that Lucasfilm has wrapped up the first season of Star Wars series Andor, December is set to be an admittedly quieter month by comparison. But there are still plenty of exciting franchise shows and even a Marvel Studios special to keep up with the holiday festivities.

We’ve sifted through hours of content for audiences to look through in this guide, combining recent hits with past additions to the platform worth looking into for the uninitiated.

And for those that find what’s on display here appealing, the Disney Bundle is a streaming package to consider investing in, which gets you Disney+, ESPN+, and Hulu for just $14 a month. That’s a great bundled price for the content you’re getting, whether it’s the latest from Star Wars and Marvel, sports coverage, or all the originals offered on Hulu.

Looking for some more guidance on how to make the most of your streaming service subscriptions? We have also compiled guides on the best movies on Disney+, on top of the best shows on Netflix, the best shows on Amazon Prime, and the best shows on Hulu.

The Guardians of the Galaxy Holiday Special (2022) new
The Guardians of the Galaxy Holiday Special
80 %
Genre Superhero, Sci-Fi, Comedy
Cast Dave Bautista, Pom Klementieff, Kevin Bacon
Created by James Gunn
Marvel Studios has admittedly seen varying degrees of staleness in several of their superhero ventures in recent years, but it seems that the newfound TV specials format has some potential. It’s an exciting way to creatively use the TV medium to its potential, paving the way for some engaging one-off stories. And with James Gunn returning to helm his iteration of the Guardians of the Galaxy, fans are given a fun new side story revolving around everyone’s favorite band of Marvel Cinematic Universe misfits. In The Guardians of the Galaxy Holiday Special, the plot puts a refreshing focus on Dave Bautista’s Drax and Pom Klementieff’s Mantis in a superhero and sci-fi-themed escapade — with Kevin Bacon playing himself in a supporting role to boot.
Star Wars: Tales of the Jedi (2022) new
Star Wars: Tales of the Jedi
tv-pg 1 Season
Genre Animation, Sci-Fi & Fantasy
Created by Dave Filoni
Though Andor has closed the curtains on its gripping and reinvigorating debut season, there’s still some content in the Star Wars universe worth going back to get invested in. Like recent animated projects including the final season of The Clone Wars, The Bad Batch, and the anime-focused shorts anthology Visions, Tales of the Jedi is another impressive set of isolated Star Wars stories. Comprising six-episode shorts, this animated series takes fans back to the Prequel era while chronicling the parallel lives of then-Jedi Count Dooku and the young Ahsoka Tano. All six shorts of Tales of the Jedi are available to stream now.
Star Wars Rebels (2014) new
Star Wars Rebels
tv-y7 4 Seasons
Genre Action & Adventure, Animation
Cast Freddie Prinze Jr., Taylor Gray, Vanessa Marshall
Created by Simon Kinberg, Dave Filoni, Carrie Beck
Even though it didn’t quite measure up to the highs of The Clone Wars, Rebels still garnered a much-deserved, positive critical reception for continuing the franchise’s success in the realm of animation. Star Wars Rebels is the natural sequel to The Clone Wars, this time largely following a new main cast of characters. It begins 14 years into the devastating aftermath of Emperor Palpatine’s Order 66, with Jedi now endangered and actively hunted down. And while the protagonists are mostly original, it rewards longtime fans with satisfying conclusions to story arcs started in the preceding series, with thrilling appearances by characters from the original trilogy. All four seasons of  Star Wars Rebels are available to stream now.
Star Wars: Andor (2022)
Star Wars: Andor
74 %
tv-14 1 Season
Genre Sci-Fi & Fantasy, Action & Adventure, War & Politics
Cast Diego Luna, Stellan Skarsgård, Kyle Soller
Created by Tony Gilroy
It’s a bit of a misnomer to call this Rogue One prequel series Andor. It is the story of the doomed Rebel operative, Cassian Andor (Diego Luna). However, the narrative has greatly expanded to include Rebel masterminds Luthen Rael (Stellan Skarsgård) and Mon Mothma (Genevieve O’Reilly), as well as a dedicated Imperial agent, Dedra Meero (Denise Gough). The show’s relatively slow pace has put off some Star Wars fans, but it has incredible writing with excellent performances by Skarsgård and guest star Andy Serkis that have already made this season an unforgettable experience.
Save Our Squad with David Beckham (2022)
Save Our Squad with David Beckham

1 Season
Genre Documentary, Reality
Cast David Beckham
David Beckham is such a world-renowned soccer player that his fame even extends to America for his stint with the Los Angeles Galaxy. But before Beckham was famous, he was simply another child soccer player in East London’s Echo Premiere League. Disney+’s new reality show, Save Our Squad With David Beckham, brings the star player home as he mentors the Westward Boys, a struggling East London team that is at risk of being expelled from the league. Can Beckham’s guidance help the team turn their fortunes around? Probably, and it will be a lot of fun to see these kids come together with Beckham.

Cast Lauren Graham, Emilio Estevez, Brady Noon
Created by Steven Brill, Josh Goldsmith, Cathy Yuspa
In the Mighty Ducks movies, the titular team was a group of underdogs who rose above adversity to find a way to win. But in the Disney+ sequel series, The Mighty Ducks: Game Changers, the team’s success has transformed it into something unrecognizable. It’s now an elite junior hockey team that is the complete opposite of what the original Ducks stood for.
The Mighty Ducks: Game Changers | Official Trailer | Disney+

When Coach T (Dylan Playfair) heartlessly cuts Evan Morrow (Brady Noon) from the Ducks, Evan’s mother, Alex Morrow (Lauren Graham), takes it upon herself to start a new hockey team called the Don’t Bothers just so her son and his fellow outcasts have a group of their own. This soon attracts the attention of Gordon Bombay (Emilio Estevez), the original coach of the Ducks. And as much as Gordon has soured on hockey, the kids’ passion for the game helps him rediscover his own. The second season is now streaming on Disney+[/dt_media]

Now streaming its second season on Disney+, The Mysterious Benedict Society follows four kids: Reynard “Reynie” Muldoon (Mystic Inscho), George “Sticky” Washington (Seth Carr), Kate Wetherall (Emmy DeOliveira), and Constance Contraire (Marta Kessler). They’ve been recruited by the enigmatic Nicholas Benedict (Tony Hale) to infiltrate the Learning Institute for Veritas and Enlightenment and foil the evil plans of Dr. L.D. Curtain. However, Benedict has neglected to tell the kids that the malevolent Dr. Curtain is actually his twin brother, Nathaniel Benedict (Hale).

Jennifer Walters (Tatiana Maslany) may be one of the most normal people in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. She just happens to be the She-Hulk as well. In She-Hulk: Attorney At Law, Jennifer’s life is transformed after she is infected with the blood of her famous cousin, Bruce Banner/Hulk (Mark Ruffalo). Despite Bruce’s best efforts to turn her into a superhero, Jen resumes her career as a lawyer only to find herself at the forefront of a law firm’s superhuman law division. Unfortunately for Jen, her life only gets stranger from there.
Bluey (2018)
tv-y 3 Seasons
Genre Animation, Kids
Cast Dave McCormack, Melanie Zanetti
Created by Joe Brumm
If you have very young children, you’re probably well-aware of Bluey. This animated program is a blockbuster hit among the preschool crowd, and it has a delightfully simple premise. It follows a puppy named Bluey and her younger sister, Bingo, as they use the power of their imaginations to play with each other and the world around them. Bluey and Bingo’s parents, Bandit (David McCormack) and Chilli (Melanie Zanetti), also use the fun and games to gently teach their two girls some important life lessons. Those lessons are one of the reasons why Bluey appeals to parents as well.

The Simpsons (1989)
The Simpsons
87 %
tv-14 33 Seasons
Genre Family, Animation, Comedy
Cast Dan Castellaneta, Julie Kavner, Nancy Cartwright
Created by Matt Groening
Disney+ hasn’t officially announced it yet, but The Simpsons season 33 is going to arrive on the platform later this month shortly before or after the season 34 premiere on Fox on Sunday, September 24. In its heyday, The Simpsons was the sharpest animated satire on television, and it easily ranked among the best comedies on TV. Although the show’s best days may be behind it, the Simpson family of Homer, Marge, Maggie, Bart, and Lisa have become an American institution. We can’t imagine a world without the Simpsons in it, and we probably won’t have to for a very long time.

Prop Culture (2020)
Prop Culture
tv-pg 1 Season
Genre Documentary
Cast Dan Lanigan
Disney+ isn’t just about pop culture, it’s also about Prop Culture. Collector, Disney fan, and host Dan Lanigan created this eight-part documentary series in which he attempts to track down some missing props from Disney classics like Mary Poppins, Who Framed Roger Rabbit, Tron, Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl, and more. Some of these items have found their way into private collections, which we get to see on the show. Lanigan also has the honor of speaking with many of the behind-the-scenes creators who brought these films to life. 
I Am Groot (2022)
I Am Groot
tv-pg 1 Season
Genre Family, Comedy, Animation, Sci-fi
Cast Vin Diesel
Created by Kirsten Lepore
The Guardians of the Galaxy’s smallest hero, Groot, has his own series of shorts on Disney+. But since there’s so little time to waste in I Am Groot, the little guy fast forwards through the MCU fanfare himself. Vin Diesel reprises his role as Baby Groot, but don’t worry about things like continuity. These are just fun misadventures with Groot that never run longer than a few minutes. He even manages to learn a few things along the way. For Guardians fans, Bradley Cooper also reprises his role as Rocket in one of the shorts, and it’s easily our favorite of the season.

Created by Seth MacFarlane
Do you know what the advantage is to watching The Orville on Disney+ instead of Hulu? There are no ads on Disney+…at least until this fall. This series openly parodies Star Trek and isn’t exactly Disney-friendly at first glance. But it’s also an earnest show in its own way, as lifelong Trekker Seth MacFarlane gets to live out his dream by playing Captain Edward “Ed” Mercer, the new commanding officer of the Orville. Alongside his ex-wife and new first officer, Kelly Grayson (Adrianne Palicki), and their faithful crew, Mercer explores new worlds and saves the galaxy in ways that would make all Star Trek generations proud.

Light & Magic (2022)
Light & Magic
tv-14 1 Season
Genre Documentary
Cast George Lucas
Created by Lawrence Kasdan
If you know anything about special effects, you’ve probably heard of Industrial Light & Magic, the storied special effects unit that George Lucas formed to create his original Star Wars trilogy. ILM has gone on to become one of the most prominent effects houses in Hollywood history. Thankfully, Lucas and company documented a lot of their work along the way. In the new Disney+ original series, Light & Magic, director Lawrence Kasdan introduces fans to the unsung men and women behind-the-scenes who have created movie magic for over four decades. It’s an eye-opening experience even for casual fans.

Cast Bear Grylls
Created by Bear Grylls, Delbert Shoopman
Adventurer and TV host Bear Grylis is back for the latest season of Running Wild with Bear Grylls, which has a new subtitle: The Challenge. It’s nothing new for Bear to bring along a celebrity sidekick, but he really got Ashton Kutcher to open up about his health problems in the Costa Rica episode. Bear also took Natalie Portman to the Escalante Desert and taught Shang-Chi star Simu Liu some essential survival skills in the Canadian Rockies. You may not get to join Bear yourself, but it’s fun to watch these episodes unfold from the perspective of each celebrity guest.
Baymax! (2022)
tv-pg 1 Season
Genre Animation, Action & Adventure, Comedy, Kids
Cast Scott Adsit, Ryan Potter
Created by Don Hall
The breakout hero from Big Hero 6 is back in Baymax! Scott Adsit once again reprises his vocal role as Baymax, the inflatable healthcare robot who was repurposed to become a superhero. However, Baymax feels the need to revisit his original programming in this series of shorts as he sets out to help heal the people of San Fransokyo, whether they want his help or not! There are no big superhero battles to be had here, but Baymax does get into some hilarious situations despite his kind nature. And yet Baymax almost always finds a way to truly heal the people he comes into contact with.
The Villains of Valley View (2022)
The Villains of Valley View
tv-y7 1 Season
Genre Comedy, Kids
Cast Kayden Muller-Janssen, Lucy Davis, James Patrick Stuart
Marvel doesn’t have a monopoly on superheroes at Disney+. The Villains of Valley View stars Isabella Pappas as Amy, the teenage daughter of a family of supervillains. Amy’s parents, Eva/Surge (Lucy Davis) and Vic/Kraniac (James Patrick Stuart), are former members of the League of Villains who were in good standing with the evildoers. However, Amy/Havoc got the family blacklisted when she stood up for them against the top bad guy, Onyx. Now the entire Madden family, including Amy’s brothers, Colby/Flashform (Malachi Barton) and Jake/Chaos (Reed Horstmann), have to hide under assumed identities and keep their cover intact. That’s a lot easier said than done.
Alias (2001)
75 %
tv-14 5 Seasons
Genre Action & Adventure, Drama
Cast Jennifer Garner, Michael Vartan, Victor Garber
Created by J.J. Abrams
Two decades ago, J.J. Abrams made a big splash on ABC with Alias, an espionage series with unexpected elements of sci-fi and fantasy. Jennifer Garner stars as Sydney Bristow, an undercover operative for a CIA black ops division called SD-6. Sydney openly admires her boss, Arvin Sloane (Ron Rifkin), until she learns that SD-6 isn’t actually affiliated with the CIA at all. While hiding her double life from her friend, Will Tippin (Bradley Cooper), Sydney agrees to remain undercover at SD-6 while working for the real CIA to bring them down alongside another double agent: Her father, Jack Bristow (Victor Garber). This is one of the more mature additions to Disney+, but it should be fine for teenagers and older viewers.
America the Beautiful (2022)
America the Beautiful
tv-pg 1 Season
Genre Documentary
Cast Michael B. Jordan
How well do you know your country? National Geographic’s America the Beautiful shows us that there’s a lot more to the United States than cities and towns. Michael B. Jordan narrates each episode as the series offers a stunning look at the landscape and the animals who live in the wild. This show also explores how climate change challenges wildlife to find new ways to survive. It’s not always a pretty picture, but it’s a breathtaking reminder about the ways our environment has been transformed by humanity’s decisions and inaction.

We’ve been waiting a long time for this, but Ewan McGregor is finally back as Obi-Wan Kenobi in the miniseries that shares his name. Ten years have passed since the events of Revenge of the Sith, and Obi-Wan is a broken man who has lost faith in the path of the Jedi. Unfortunately for Obi-Wan, he can’t remain in hiding for much longer. A personal mission will force him to leave Tatooine, which draws his former pupil, Darth Vader (Hayden Christensen, with James Earl Jones reprising his iconic voiceover role). It’s the rematch of the century, and Obi-Wan’s greatest challenge lies ahead.

The Marvel Cinematic Universe’s newest heroine is headlining her own show before jumping to the big screen next year in The Marvels. Newcomer Iman Vellani stars in Ms. Marvel as Kamala Khan, a refreshingly normal teenager who just happens to be one of the biggest superhero fans, especially for her idol, Captain Marvel. When Kamala gains superhuman powers of her own, it’s like a dream come true. She has to learn the hard way that being a hero isn’t that simple, and her life is about to change forever.

Genre Comedy, Drama
Cast Matthew Morrison, Jane Lynch, Lea Michele
Created by Ryan Murphy, Ian Brennan, Brad Falchuk
Glee’s arrival on Disney+ is emblematic of the platform’s shift towards more mature programming that would traditionally be on Hulu alone. This wildly popular musical dramedy stars Matthew Morrison as high school teacher Will Schuester, and the new coordinator for the glee club at William McKinley High School. Will is lucky to have some extremely talented singers on his club, including Rachel (Lea Michele), Finn (Cory Monteith), Artie (Kevin McHale), Kurt (Chris Colfer), and Mercedes (Amber Riley). But if the glee club is ever gonna get to the regionals, they will have to deal with the machinations of cheerleading coach Sue Sylvester (Jane Lynch), as well as the everyday trials of being a teenager.
Chip 'n' Dale Rescue Rangers (1989)
Chip 'n' Dale Rescue Rangers
tv-g 3 Seasons
Genre Animation, Comedy, Kids, Family
Cast Corey Burton, Tress MacNeille, Jim Cummings
Created by Alan Zaslove, Tad Stones
The recently released Chip ‘n Dale: Rescue Rangers movie is a very funny, and also very adult, take on the original animated series from 1989. But for younger viewers, it’s probably a better idea to start them out on the show. It’s got a lot of charm despite its age. Lifelong friends Chip (Tress MacNeille) and Dale (Corey Burton) decide to make a difference in the world by forming a detective agency with Monterey Jack (Peter Cullen and Jim Cummings), Gadget Hackwrench (MacNeille), and a fly named Zipper (Burton). Together, the Rescue Rangers take on the cases that would otherwise “go slippin’ through the cracks.”
The Owl House (2020)
The Owl House
tv-y7 2 Seasons
Genre Animation, Sci-Fi & Fantasy, Comedy, Action & Adventure
Cast Sarah-Nicole Robles, Wendie Malick, Alex Hirsch
Created by Dana Terrace
The Owl House’s second season has arrived on Disney+, and it’s a marked departure from almost everything that Disney has done before. Sarah-Nicole Robles stars as Luz Noceda, a young girl who stumbles upon a witch named Eda Clawthorne (Wendie Malick), and her demon companion, King (Alex Hirsch). Upon learning that magic is real, Luz is determined to become a witch herself under the tutelage of Eda. Luz also has the honor of being the first LGBT lead in Disney history, as she is in a romantic relationship with a girl named Amity Blight (Mae Whitman). But it’s not all love and magic on this show, as Luz and her new friends face an evil that could threaten the human world as well.
Once (2017)
tv-g 3 Seasons
Genre Comedy, Family
Cast Sebastián Athié, Juan David Penagos, Luan Brum
Created by Jorge Edelstein
Don’t let Disney+’s confusing stylization, OIICE, distract you from what Once really is. This is one of the rare Disney original series that was created for Latin America. It’s a telenovela for teenagers, but the themes are universal as Gabriel “Gabo” Moreti (Mariano González-Guerineau) chases his dream to become a great soccer player. After earning a scholarship to Sports Academic Institute, Gabo’s ambitions are hindered when many of the team’s star players abandon the school for other institutions. Gabo will have to lead his remaining teammates to victory, if he can overcome some new rivals on the squad. He might even find love along the way. After all, we did say this was a telenovela.
Sketchbook (2022)
tv-pg 1 Season
Genre Documentary
Disney is keen to remind everyone that “the magic is drawn one line at a time.” But that doesn’t usually include a space to showcase the artists behind the magic. Sketchbook is a brilliant way to change that. Each episode, a Disney artist chooses a character from the studio’s vast library of animated features and shows the audience how they bring that character to life either on the page or on the computer screen. It’s fun to watch them draw, but the most entertaining part is when the men and women explain their Disney origin stories and how they ended up working for the studio.

New episodes of Marvel Studios: Assembled are admittedly few and far between. But this is the series that offers an intimate look behind-the-scenes of Marvel’s films and its original series that were created for Disney+. Since the shows aren’t on Blu-ray, this is really the only way to experience the special features for Loki, WandaVision, Hawkeye, and the upcoming Moon Knight special. Of course, there will also be special episodes later this year for Marvel’s 2022 film slate, shortly after they arrive on Disney+.

Unfortunately for Steven Grant (Oscar Isaac), his world comes crashing down when he learns that he is both Moon Knight and his alter ego, Marc Spector. Thanks to his severe dissociative identity disorder, Steven really believed he was just a simple gift shop employee with a mundane life.

Despite the vast distance between them, the four friends must find a way to reconnect in order to change their fate and restore their lives.

There’s no such thing as “Disney+ After Dark,” but Daredevil and its fellow Netflix refugees are about as close to R-rated content that you can find in the MCU. That’s why there are new parental controls on Disney+. But if you and your kids are old enough to enjoy it, then you’re in for one of the most amazing superhero adaptations to date. Charlie Cox stars as Matt Murdock, a blind lawyer whose enhanced senses allow him to become the costumed vigilante known as Daredevil. Vincent D’Onofrio also stars in the show as Wilson Fisk, a fearsome crime lord who won’t let anyone stand in the way of his criminal empire. That puts Matt and Wilson into conflict over the course of the entire series.

Black-ish is one of the few modern comedies that isn’t afraid to tackle the topic of race in a way that doesn’t belittle the subject matter or dumb it down for a general audience. In fact, there are moments when this show can be quite dramatic. But it’s still a family comedy at heart, with grounded and very funny performances by Anthony Anderson and Tracee Ellis Ross as Andre “Dre” Johnson and his wife, Rainbow Johnson, respectively. Together, the Johnsons raise their children Zoey Johnson (Yara Shahidi), Andre Johnson, Jr. (Marcus Scribner), Jack Johnson (Miles Brown), and Diane Johnson (Marsai Martin) against the backdrop of an increasingly complex world.

This Wonder Years is not The Wonder Years you may remember from the ‘80s. Although both the original series and its reboot take place in the ‘60s, the modern incarnation takes a look at the period from the perspective of an African-American family. In this period of social and racial strife, young Dean Williams (Elisha “EJ” Williams) still manages to find hope and inspiration. Don Cheadle provides the voice of Dean’s older incarnation in the present, and he offers his thoughts about his parents, Bill (Dulé Hill) and Lillian (Saycon Sengbloh), as well as his sister, Kim (Laura Kariuki), and the girl he longs for: Keisa Clemmons (Milan Ray).

A graduate student named Eun Yeong-ro (Jisoo) finds Lim Soo-ho (Jung Hae-in) suffering from a gunshot in the aftermath of a student protest. Yeong-ro quickly falls in love with Soo-ho and believes that he is a student protester.

Genre Animation, Comedy, Action & Adventure, Sci-Fi & Fantasy

Created by Matt Braly
If you think that Disney never tries out anything new, then maybe you should check out Amphibia. This animated series is really catching on, thanks to its unique blend of sci-fi, adventure, and heart. The show follows a 13-year-old girl, Anne Boonchuy (Brenda Song), and her friends, Sasha Waybright (Anna Akana) and Marcy Wu (Haley Tju), as they are thrust into an alternate reality called Amphibia where anthropomorphic frogs rule. While Anne is taken in by a kind family of frogs, Sasha takes a more ambiguous turn, and Marcy … poor Marcy, suffers a fate that may be worse than death. This is an unfolding epic for the younger viewers, but older fans may find a lot to enjoy as well.

National Geographic’s Called To the Wild is a survivalist reality competition that pairs people with their trusted canine companions. Three teams of humans and dogs brave the elements together and use their strong bonds to overcome any adversity that heads their way.

Cast Jeff Goldblum
The World According to Jeff Goldblum was one of the first original series on Disney+, and now it’s back for a second season, courtesy of National Geographic. Goldblum hosts the documentary series, but it’s not a traditional format. Rather than presenting himself as an expert, Goldblum intentionally explores topics that he knows little about, like the creation of sneakers, ice cream, video games, and more. And as Goldblum learns more about the subjects, so too do the viewers. Of course, Goldblum’s natural sense of humor and wonder shines through, which makes it a very enjoyable show to watch.

1 Season
Genre Animation, Kids
Cast Matthew Géczy, Kaycie Chase, Bill Farmer
Chip ‘n’ Dale: Park Life is technically the second Disney animated series to feature the titular chipmunks as main characters. However, these aren’t the Rescue Rangers that you may remember. Instead, Park Life takes its inspiration from the original Chip ‘n’ Dale animated shorts by presenting the duo as wild animals who live in a park. Their misadventures are largely non verbal in this series, but a few familiar faces show up. That includes Pluto and his pups, as well as Chip ‘n’ Dale’s old nemesis, Donald Duck.

Genre Adventure, Action, Superhero, Romance
Stars Cristina Valenzuela, Bryce Papenbrook, Keith Silverstein, Mela Lee, Max Mittelman
Directed by Thomas Astruc
There’s more to the superhero genre than just Marvel can provide. Case in point, the French animated series, Miraculous: Tales of Ladybug & Cat Noir. In this series, Marinette Dupain-Cheng and Adrien Agreste are teenage crime-fighting partners when they assume their alter egos, Ladybug and Cat Noir. They’re also in love with each other, but not in the way that makes for an easy relationship. Since neither Marinette nor Adrien knows each other’s secret identity, it makes things complicated when Adrien has romantic feelings for Ladybug and yet has none of those feelings for Marinette. In turn, Marinette loves Adrien, but she’s not into Cat Noir. Somehow, they will have to navigate their feelings while defending Paris against evil.

Genre Documentary
Cast John Lennon, Paul McCartney, George Harrison
Created by Peter Jackson
Is The Beatles: Get Back a miniseries or a single documentary that got out of control in the editing room? Since there are three episodes, we’re calling it a miniseries. The Lord of the Rings director Peter Jackson was given access to over sixty hours of previously unseen footage of the Fab Four: Paul McCartney, Ringo Starr, John Lennon, and George Harrison. Jackson’s special effects team has also restored the footage to a remarkably fresh and vibrant state while showing the Beatles creating and recording music together. Get Back doesn’t shy away from showing tensions as well, including one bandmate’s abrupt departure. But it may be the best window into the Beatles near the end of their run that anyone outside of the band will ever see.

We like to think we know everything about our planet, and every creature that resides there. But there’s always more to learn and discover. In National Geographic’s new series, Welcome To Earth, Will Smith serves as an executive producer, host, and an enthusiastic explorer as a team of experts takes him around the world to experience some of the most unique places on Earth. Their trip even includes some time in a submarine beneath the waves, which Smith likens to another planet entirely. It’s a beautifully realized journey of a world that hasn’t given up all of her secrets yet.

Created by Jonathan Igla
Hawkeye is the final live-action show in Marvel Studios’ first year on Disney+, and it may be the best one to date. Hailee Steinfeld stars as Kate Bishop, a young woman who has idolized Clint Barton/Hawkeye (Jeremy Renner) for most of her life. In the present, Kate’s suspicions of her soon-to-be father-in-law, Jack Duquesne (Tony Dalton), lead her to enter Clint’s life at a very inopportune time. Their subsequent actions also catch the attention of Maya Lopez (Alaqua Cox), a deadly woman who blames Hawkeye’s alter ego, Ronin, for the death of her father.
Magic Bake-Off (2021)
Magic Bake-Off
1 Season
Genre Reality
Cast Issac Ryan Brown, Dara Reneé
It shouldn’t surprise anyone that Disney has its own bake-off show. It’s practically a streaming prerequisite. But the appeal of Disney Magic Bake-off comes with the form that the show takes. Rather than focusing on adult chefs, hosts Issac Ryan Brown and Dara Reneé oversee a contest between kids to come up with the best Disney-inspired deserts that they can conceive within a strict time limit. For the first season, the topics include Disney Princesses, theme parks, The Lion King, Frozen, Toy Story, and more. It’s a real charmer, and appropriate family viewing is always welcomed here.
Just Beyond (2021)
Just Beyond
tv-pg 1 Season
Genre Family, Comedy
Created by Seth Grahame-Smith
Remember R.L. Stine’s Goosebumps? Disney+’s Just Beyond is essentially another iteration of that, based upon the graphic novels that Stine created in association with Boom! Studios. Each episode tells a self-contained story of its own, as kids and young adults find themselves thrust into unusual and strange circumstances including alternate worlds, aliens, supernatural creatures, and more. It’s a wonderfully weird universe out there, and it’s only getting weirder.
Wizards of Waverly Place (2007)
Wizards of Waverly Place

Genre Comedy, Sci-Fi & Fantasy, Kids
Cast Selena Gomez, David Henrie, Jake T. Austin
Created by Todd J. Greenwald
Would it surprise you to learn that Disney does have its own Harry Potter, by way of Sabrina the Teenage Witch? Wizards of Waverly Place may not be as serious as Harry’s adventures, but it’s a touchstone show for kids who grew up watching the Disney Channel in the 2000s. Selena Gomez plays Alex Russo, the oldest sibling in a family of wizards. Alex’s brothers, Justin (David Henrie) and Max (Jake T. Austin), are also wizards. But in this world, only one family member can hold onto their powers when they come of age. That means the Russo siblings are in competition with each other, even though they remain close as a family.

TRON: Uprising
tv-y7 1 Season
Genre Action & Adventure, Animation, Sci-Fi & Fantasy
Cast Mandy Moore, Elijah Wood, Emmanuelle Chriqui
Created by Edward Kitsis, Adam Horowitz
It’s unfortunate that there’s only a single season of Tron: Uprising, but what a season it was! This is the high point of the Tron franchise, with beautifully realized animation and a strong story about Beck (Elijah Wood), a young program who may be the next Tron. Bruce Boxleitner reprises his role as the original Tron, and he mentors Beck as he starts a resistance movement against the forces of Clu. Beck leads a double life in part to protect his friends, Mara (Mandy Moore) and Zed (Nate Corddry). But Beck also finds himself drawn to the enemy general, Paige (Emmanuelle Chriqui), a female program whose loyalties to the regime are conflicted by her empathy and her intelligence.
Gargoyles (1994)
tv-g 3 Seasons
Genre Animation, Sci-Fi & Fantasy, Action & Adventure
Cast Keith David, Salli Richardson-Whitfield, Jeff Bennett
Created by Frank Paur, Greg Weisman
In 1994, Disney didn’t have many action oriented brands like Marvel or Star Wars. What it did have was Gargoyles, an amazing animated series that seemed to take its style from Batman: The Animated Series. However, Gargoyles surpassed its influences with a dense and compelling mythology about gargoyles from 994 A.D. who awakened in the present after being trapped in stone for 1,000 years. Goliath (Keith David) leads the surviving gargoyles, and he forms a special bond with police detective Eliza Maza (Salli Richardson). Their slow burn romance was set against the backdrop of fantasy and sci-fi stories that remain among the best that Disney has ever made.

Lucasfilm delivered a new spin on Star Wars with this anime anthology series that includes nine short films produced by Japanese animation studios and inspired by the beloved sci-fi saga set in a galaxy far, far away. Set throughout the Star Wars timeline — and in some cases, outside of it — the films filter the franchise through a fresh lens that also offers some fascinating new stories voiced by an all-star cast of actors. Among the highlights in Star Wars: Visions are the Akira Kurosawa-inspired tale The Duel, and the surprising, post-Rise of Skywalker story told in The Ninth Jedi, among other great episodes.

Brian Volk-Weiss, the filmmaker responsible for the popular, nostalgia-inducing documentary series The Toys That Made Us and The Movies That Made Us, turns his attention to the Disney theme parks with this surprisingly deep dive into the history, evolution, and future of some of the most famous Disney attractions around the world. From The Haunted Mansion and Jungle Cruise to the Disney hotels, castles, and even the parks’ groundbreaking transportation systems, the series covers a lot of ground — literally — as it explores how Disney’s park experience has changed over time. Dwayne Johnson, who co-produced the series with Volk-Weiss, even makes an appearance, with Paget Brewster narrating the episodes. And yes, in case you’re wondering, there’s an entire episode dedicated to It’s A Small World.

The Clone Wars feature film, which also serves as the series pilot, is not good. The animated series that followed that film is very, very good. Although The Clone Wars started as a typical action-adventure cartoon, it quickly morphed into something much more complex: A thorough and nuanced examination of the horrors of war in the Star Wars universe. Across seven seasons, The Clone Wars both deepened and expanded the Star Wars franchise in all kinds of unexpected ways. Even better? The end isn’t really the end — the story continues in The Clone Wars‘ also-great follow-up, Star Wars Rebels.

So Weird was never the biggest Disney Channel series, but over the years, it’s become a cult classic. The title tells you why. In this X-Files-inspired series, a teenage girl tries to find a way to communicate with her dead father while touring with her rock-star mom and ends up running afoul of ghosts, vampires, Bigfoot, angels, and all kinds of other paranormal creatures. If you want something darker than the typical Disney Channel fare, look no further. You’ve found it.

The show features voice-over work and flash-forward appearances from Gina Rodriguez, playing the adult Elena, as she reads from Elena’s middle school diary and leads a political campaign. Rodriguez produces through her own I Can & I Will production company, alongside CBS Television Studios, with episodes premiering on Disney+. The show does a good job of balancing coming-of-age tribulations with witty humor. It’s sharp and heartfelt writing, for sure, which helped to net Diary a second season through Disney+.

When Disney+ launched, classic variety series The Muppet Show was conspicuously absent from its library. That terrible mistake was finally addressed when all five seasons of the show were added to the streaming service in February 2021. The series joins the various Muppets movies and modern Muppets projects like Muppets Now on the service, and offers a great reminder of just how groundbreaking The Muppet Show was when it premiered in 1975. Over the course of its run, a long list of A-list celebrities joined Kermit, Miss Piggy, and the rest of the Muppets gang, including Steve Martin, Diana Ross, Elton John, and even Luke Skywalker himself, Mark Hamill.

Disney’s reboot of ’90s teen-doctor series Doogie Howser, M.D. isn’t a sequel or spinoff, but rather the story of another teenage prodigy who finds herself saddled with the nickname “Doogie” due to awareness of the classic ABC series in the show’s fictional world. Peyton Elizabeth Lee portrays Lahela “Doogie” Kameāloha, a graduate of Harvard Medical School at just 16 years old, who finds herself juggling the responsibilities of a medical career with the trials and tribulations of teenage life. Fortunately, the Hawaiian teenager has plenty of friends and family around her to help. With positive reviews for its first few episodes, the series has proven to be just as rewarding for the children of parents who grew up with Doogie Howser as it is for kids discovering the premise for the very first time.

Stepbrothers Phineas and Ferb are going to have the best summer vacation they can, the only way they know how: By building ludicrous and extremely dangerous contraptions in their backyard and avoiding the wrath of their older sister, Candace. Phineas and Ferb has the same energy as Family Guy (co-creator Dan Povenmire used to work on Fox’s animated sitcom), but it’s not nearly as raunchy, leading to a show that the whole family can enjoy.

Over the course of the show’s 65 episodes, the series explored Peter Parker’s life both in and out of costume and took the unusual (at the time) approach of having lengthy, season-long story arcs unfold in addition to more traditional episodic adventures.

Destinations in the fifth and sixth seasons — which are both available on Disney+ now — included Iceland, Panama, Sierra Nevada, and Moab, Utah, among other breathtaking — but dangerous — locales.

The first live-action Star Wars series got off to a surprising start, and things are only going to get wilder as time goes on. In this groundbreaking series from Iron Man director Jon Favreau, Pedro Pascal stars as a bounty hunter who travels through the Star Wars Universe’s seedy underbelly, brushing up against ex-Imperial warlords, former Rebel shock troopers, assassin droids, and all other kinds of ne’er-do-wells — all while protecting an adorable piece of precious cargo. Featuring the talents of Timothy Olyphant, Werner Herzog, Ming-Na Wen, Nick Nolte, Gina Carano, and Giancarlo Esposito — and that’s just in front of the camera — this series is something special.

This anthology documentary series explores various topics within and around the Marvel Comics universe, its rich history, and the fans that have made it one of the most popular franchises in the world. While that’s all well and good, the series’ deep dive into Marvel’s legacy is a surprisingly deep, heartfelt journey through some of the brand’s iconic elements, strangest moments, and the ways it is evolving to better represent its diverse fanbase. Gillian Jacobs, Paul Scheer, and other familiar faces both host and direct episodes within the series, which explores such topics as the origin of “The Japanese Spider-Man,” the forgotten characters of the Marvel universe, and how female creators and the stories they tell are shaping Marvel’s future.

Wolverine and the X-Men (also available on Disney+) might be the superior cartoon, but there’s still nothing quite like X-Men: The Animated Series. The phenomenally catchy theme song. The ludicrous Jim Lee-designed costumes. The weird, funny moments that have sparked a thousand memes. This Saturday morning cartoon was many fans’ first introduction to Marvel’s merry mutants, and it remains one of the most popular takes on the characters. Nostalgia: It’s powerful stuff.
