Ladies and gentleman, it’s The Muppet Show on your favorite streaming service, Disney+. Yaaaaaaayyy!!! (Muppet arm flailing happy dance). All five seasons of Jim Henson’s classic variety show are now streaming along with a new episode of WandaVision and the new original film Flora & Ulysses. Whatever you choose to stream this week, we hope it’s magical.
“Disney’s Flora & Ulysses is a delightful comedy-adventure based on the Newbery Award-winning book about 10-year old Flora, an avid comic book fan and a self-avowed cynic, whose parents have recently separated. After rescuing a squirrel she names Ulysses, Flora is amazed to discover he possesses unique superhero powers which take them on an adventure of humorous complications that ultimately change Flora’s life–and her outlook–forever.”
WandaVision – “Breaking the Fourth Wall”
“Monica plots her return, Wanda navigates unsettling complications, and Vision forms a new alliance”
