Disney+ has two big premieres this week with Big Shot and Earth Moods, plus new episodes of The Falcon and the Winter Soldier and The Mighty Ducks: Game Changers. Whatever you choose to stream this week, we hope it’s magical.
Big Shot – “Pilot”
“After getting ousted from the NCAA, a hothead men’s basketball coach is given a chance for redemption with a coaching position at an all-girls high school. He soon learns that the teenage players require empathy and vulnerability — foreign concepts for the stoic Coach Korn (John Stamos). By learning how to connect with his players, Marvyn starts to grow into the person he’s always hoped to be. The girls learn to take themselves more seriously, finding their footing both on and oﬀ the court.”
Earth Moods – All 5 Episodes
“A visual and soundscape experience takes viewers on the ultimate retreat—transporting them to a vast array of colorful and calming corners of the world. Viewers travel to blue glaciers, arid deserts, lush rainforests and pulsating metropolises to escape from the cacophony of everyday life.”
The Mighty Ducks: Game Changers – “Hockey Moms”
“Bombay helps Don’t Bother moms take on Duck moms on the ice; Sofi’s fate hangs in the balance.”
The Falcon and the Winter Soldier – “Truth”
“John Walker faces consequences for his actions, and Sam and Bucky return to the U.S.”
Secrets of the Whales – Premiering Earth Day (April 22nd)

Filmed over three years in 24 locations, throughout this epic journey, we learn that whales are far more complex and more like us than ever imagined”
