Disney Plus launched in 2019 with most of Disney’s back catalog, but the platform still hasn’t reached maximum capacity just yet. In addition to original content, like the upcoming Obi-Wan Kenobi series, there is a host of older movies and shows that trickle onto Disney Plus each month.
This month, Moon Knight finishes up, and Obi-Wan Kenobi premieres just a few weeks after. In between, though, Disney Plus Original movies Sneakerella — a modern gender-swapped Cinderella redux — and Chip ’n Dale: Rescue Rangers premiere.
