As we look forward to February, the shortest month of the year, Disney+ keeps adding new content.
The first Friday in February launches with Episode 5 of WandaVision.
Furthermore, premiering is My Music Story: Yoshiki. Yoshiki is a Japanese songwriter, musician, and composer. He is also recognized as the leader of the rock group X Japan. My Music Story allows for a behind the scenes look at the production process of Yoshiki including unique arrangements of two recognizable Disney classics “Let It Go” and “Can You Feel the Love Tonight”.
The other premiering movie is Upside-Down Magic. This was originally a Disney Channel movie. A brief summary of the movie is that the kids all have magical powers… that may not function quite like they’re supposed to.
WandaVision continues to add to the Marvel fandom with Episode 6. Also, coming to Disney+ for Marvel fans is Marvel Battleworld: Mystery of the Thanostones (Season 1). The six-episode animated TV mini-series was released in June 2020. The show features the familiar heroes of Capitan Marvel and Iron Man but also includes unique characters such as Spider Ham. If you’re anticipating hearing the same voices as the live action Marvel movies, just know that different actors and actresses are doing the voiceover work.
Marvel’s Behind the Mask is a documentary that features the Super Heros we all know and love. But this documentary utilizes interviews from the original writers and artists of the Marvel comics to get a look at how Marvel impacted pop culture.
In addition to all the Marvel content, Inside Pixar: Portraits: Second Batch comes to Disney+. Like the original series, this second season looks at all the people at Pixar. Specifically, how they contribute to making the stories that Disney fans know and love.
The first Disney+ movie premiere of the year is Flora & Ulysses. Based on the book, Flora & Ulyssess: The Illuminated Adventures, Ulysses is a superhero squirrel. After a brush death by vacuum cleaner, Ulysses gains superpowers and befriends a young girl named Flora. Flora is struggling with the divorce of her parents and Ulysses is there to help her with that- although not how one might think.
Notable additions to Disney+ streaming service WandaVision: Episode 7, Cheaper by the Dozen, Cheaper by the Dozen 2, The Muppet Show (Seasons 1-5), and The Book of Life.
For those that love the nighttime spectaculars and shows of Disney Parks, this week features two. First, there is the Disney Illuminations Firework Show at Disneyland Paris. The other show comes from Shanghai Disney Resort Grand Opening Gala.
For the Frozen fan in your life, Myth: A Frozen Tale joins Disney+ this week. This is a special VR short meant to give viewers a look into the forest just outside Arendelle.
Significant new streaming shows includes Disney Pair of Kings (Season 1-3), Disney’s American Dragon: Jake Long (Season 1-2), WandaVision: Episode 8, and Secrets of Sulphur Springs (First 5 Episodes).
In case you’ve missed it…
This month’s recommended streaming show that you may have missed is the Disney series “Becoming”. This mini-series follows celebrities back to their hometown. There, they visit locations that were part of them becoming the people that we recognize today. The celebrity mix includes athletes, actors, and actresses. These short pieces are not interconnected. So, if one of the highlighted celebrities doesn’t appeal to you, skip it and go to the next episode without missing anything.
