Loving Disney+? You’re not alone. When Disney launched its streaming service in November last year, no one expected to it blow up in the way it has. In fact, Disney+ has already surpassed 28 million subscribers, as revealed at the start of February by former CEO of Walt Disney Bob Iger. The success was largely thanks to The Mandalorian, the first live action television series in the Star Wars franchise, alongside easy access to the entire collection of fan favourite’ s Marvel, Pixar, The Simpsons and the Walt Disney Animated original movies. But – the streaming service isn’t stopping there. More content for us to devour will be launching soon and we’ve got all the info. Check out everything confirmed to be arriving on Disney+ this year, as well as some highly anticipated 2021 arrivals.

Coming to Disney+ in 2020
Gear up for a big one, guys. Here’s some highlights:
Star Wars: The Clone Wars: Season 7
Perhaps one of the most successful Star Wars projects away from the Skywalker Saga movies, Star Wars: The Clone Wars is an animated series set between the prequel movies, Star Wars Episode II: Attack of the Clones and Star Wars Episode III: Revenge of the Sith.
The Clone Wars is a pivotal part of the plotline for the Star Wars galaxy. It saw a young Anakin Skywalker become the Jedi we meet at the beginning of Revenge of the Sith, and set in motion many of the events that we see in the third film. The first season aired in 2008 (after the animated film of the same name) and ran for six seasons (airing 2008-2014) before being renewed for a seventh and final season. The seventh season will tie up a lot of the storyline and we’ll see more of the events that lead up to the events of Revenge of the Sith (and it will fill in the gaps of some favourite characters, especially Ahsoka Tano, who also appears in the Star Wars Rebels show). It’s also expected to show the Siege of Mandalore, which is an important part of the Star Wars universe.
You can catch up on the film and all six previously released seasons of The Clone Wars on Disney+. The seventh and final season is launching on Disney+ from February 17.
The Mandalorian: Season 2
It’s Baby Yoda’s world, and we’re all living for it. Ever since ‘The Child’ showed up on our screens, we (and 28 million others) have fallen in love. The last episode of season 1 of The Mandalorian hinted at venturing into Baby Yoda’s origins, with the Armorer telling the Mandalorian (aka Din Djaren) that, “you have no choice, you must reunite it with its own kind.” Creator Jon Favreau said that the season would be released in October, however an exact date is yet to be confirmed.
The Falcon and the Winter Soldier
Teased in the Superbowl recently, this August we will finally get to see Sam Wilson/Falcon (Anthony Mackie) pick up the shield the Cap left for him. Set after the events of Avengers: Endgame, it will also star Sebastian Stan (oh, how we’ve missed him) as Bucky. If we can’t have Steve Rogers anymore, these two are second best.
Set to release in December (the best are always worth the wait), WandaVision is promising to be all kinds of weird and wonderful. Elizabeth Olsen and Paul Bettany are reprising their roles as Wanda Maximoff/Scarlet Witch and Vision respectively (we guess Vision is coming back to life?). The two super-powered beings are living life in quiet, ideal suburbia – until they begin to suspect that something isn’t quite right.

Monsters At Work
Everyone loves Monsters Inc – and you’ll be pleased to hear all our favourites are coming back very soon! Picking up 6 months after the power plant discovered children’s laughter, not cries, is a more powerful way to produce energy to charge the city, the Monsters are all hard at work practising some stand up comedy. A new character will be introduced (Superstore’s Ben Feldman), an eager young worker who dreams of working his way up to the Joker floor with Mike and Sulley.
America’s Got Talent success story Grace VanderWaal stars as Stargirl in her acting debut, a movie based on the New York Times best-selling novel of the same name by Jerry Spinelli. The movie follows the mysterious and quirky ‘Stargirl’ and a boy who becomes infatuated with her. After years of blending into the background, Stargirl’s unconventional ways may just change the way he sees the world. Catch it on March 13.
Timmy Failure: Mistakes Were Made
Timmy is a 11-year-old boy who gets himself into mischief – and his signature response to such trouble is just, “mistakes were made”. Fair enough, I guess? The family-friendly comedy is based on Stephan Pastis’ Timmy Failure series, which follows a soon-to-be detective (Timmy) and his polar bear friend Total, as they solve crimes in their local neighbourhood. Join in on the fun on February 7.

Coming to Disney+ in 2021
These ones we have to wait a little longer for – but we’d say they’re worth the wait! Check out everything confirmed to be arriving on Disney+ sometime in 2021.
We asked Obi-Wan for help, and now our hopes have been answered. Ever since the release of the prequel trilogy where Ewan McGregor portrayed a younger Obi-Wan Kenobi, fans have been craving more McGregor/Obi-Wan content. Luckily, Disney+ revealed that a television show doing just that was in the works, however filming is expected to begin until early 2021 so we shouldn’t expect it until late 2021, assuming there are no more delays.
Tom Hiddleston has confirmed he will be back as the love-to-hate Loki in his very own show. He got into enough mischief with less air time, so who knows how much destruction he will cause this time around. This also has no exact release date, but we should expect to welcome Loki back into our lives sometime in 2021.
Marvel’s What If…?
This one has really got people talking. Marvel’s What If…? is an animated television series, based on the Marvel comic series of the same name. The series, produced by Marvel royalty Kevin Feige, explores what would happen in the MCU if certain events did or didn’t happen – eg. What if… Jane Foster had found the hammer of Thor? What if the Avengers lost the evolutionary war? A huge amount of the stars we know and love from the Marvel Cinematic Universe are returning to voice their franchise characters, so it’s going to be special.
