For those who are trying to get their Disney fix via Disney+, the Disney based streaming service, there’s a lot to be excited about in January 2021.
January 1st & 8th
Lots of content is added to the streaming service although none of it is new. The additions include The Wolverine, Dr. Seuss’ Horton Hears a Who!, Ferdinand, Toy Story That Time Forgot, and Star Wars Forces of Destiny: Volume 1, 2, 3, and 4.
The brand-new content comes from Marvel Studios: Legends. This series features short episodes that shows off the various characters- both villains and heroes- of the Marvel universe. The first two featured characters are Wanda Maximoff and Vision.
If you’re a Marvel fan, you’ve been waiting a long time for this day. WandaVision is the first available production from Marvel since Avengers: Endgame. After the success of The Mandalorian, Marvel fans have high expectations for this short series. This nine-episode mini-series features Wanda Maximoff (The Scarlet Witch) and Vision. Also streaming on Disney+ for the first time is Mary Poppins Returns, Elena of Avalor: Season 3, and Isle of Dogs.
The big draw this week is Pixar Popcorn. Pixar Popcorn is a series of mini-shorts. What that means in terms of length of the episodes, only time will tell. Hopefully, we’ll see some of our favorite Pixar characters featured in new ways. Also featured is episode two of WandaVision.
WandaVision episode three begins streaming this week. Also coming to Disney+ for the first time is the shows Dinosaurs,Texas Storm Squad, and the movie Epic.
In case you’ve missed it…
In case you’ve missed it, Disney+ has a great backlog of the series Secrets of the Zoo, previously featured on National Geographic. Featured Zoos include The Columbus Zoo and Zoo Tampa. If you’re looking for a show with minimal inner connected plot that features cute animals- especially baby animals – this is the series to check out. The series takes you behind the scenes of the zoo with the zookeepers, veterinarians, and other staff. Viewers can see the innerworkings of the zoo including how the animals are fed and cared for throughout their lives. It is heartwarming to see how much the staff at the various zoos truly care about the animals in their care. Also featured are lots of extremely cute baby animals.
Hopefully, you can find an episode or movie to enjoy on Disney+ in January. What are you looking most forward to watching? Share with us your thoughts in the comments or on Facebook or Twitter!
