There’s a lot to celebrate this week on Disney+, including the 25th anniversary of Toy Story and 10th anniversary of Tangled. You’ll find all of them in the Library Highlights section, but first, there’s a new show premiering today, Marvel’s 616, and the documentary film The Real Right Stuff to celebrate the season finale of The Right Stuff. Whatever you choose to stream this week, we hope it’s magical.
Marvel’s 616 – All Episodes
“Marvel’s 616 explores Marvel’s rich legacy of pioneering characters, creators and storytelling to reflect the world outside your window. Each documentary, helmed by a unique filmmaker, showcases the intersections of storytelling, pop culture, and fandom within the Marvel Universe. Episodes in this anthology series will cover topics including Marvel’s world-spanning artists, the trailblazing women of Marvel Comics, discovering the “forgotten” characters of Marvel, and much more.”
The Mandalorian – “Chapter 12”
“The Mandalorian and the Child continue their journey, facing enemies and rallying allies as they make their way through a dangerous galaxy in the tumultuous era after the collapse of the Galactic Empire.”
The Right Stuff – “Flight” (Season Finale)
“After Shepard’s dramatic voyage to space, he feels underwhelmed and restless. Heeding Glenn’s advice, Shepard attempts to quell his ambition with gratitude for his wife and children. While Shepard’s marriage somehow remains intact, Gordo and Trudy’s may never recover. Meanwhile, when JFK publicly issues a challenge for NASA to send a man to the moon, Glenn’s drive to top Shepard is reignited.”
“The Real Right Stuff tells the remarkable true story of the nation’s first astronauts, the original Mercury 7, and pulls from hundreds of hours of archival film and radio broadcasts, interviews, home movies and other rare and never-before-seen material to catapult viewers back to the late 1950s. The two-hour documentary, from National Geographic, complements the Disney+ original scripted series The Right Stuff which will premiere its season finale on the same day.”
One Day at Disney Shorts – “Season Finale”
The following Disney+ exclusives premiered late last week. Here they are again in case you missed them.
The Wonderful World of Mickey Mouse – “Cheesewranglers/Supermarket Scramble”
