On September 9, The Walt Disney Company will hold its D23 event. Not unlike E3, this event is exciting for consumers and deeply dreaded by reporters (like yours truly) because the company dumps TEN THOUSAND NEWS ITEMS AT THE SAME TIME and makes it IMPOSSIBLE TO COVER EVERYTHING.
But now, you can experience the same feeling that I have, just one day earlier, when Disney+ introduces the first-ever Disney+ Day: a day when so much content will be uploaded to the servers at once, you’ll have no idea what to watch. Disney+ Day has been marked for September 8, one day prior to D23. Within the blink of an eye, you’ll get:
Thor: Love And Thunder Skipped the theatrical run? Here it is.
Marvel Studios Assembled: The Making of Thor: Love and Thunder After you’re done, learn how it was made.
She-Hulk Episode 4
Cars On The Road I wish these miniseries spinoffs of Pixar movies had the same magic that the feature films did. The fact that it’s Cars sets my expectations even lower.
Pinocchio Wow, THIS is what they’re doing with that live-action Pinocchio remake? Barely anyone is going to see it, buried under all this crap. It must be really bad!
Welcome To The Club A new Simpsons short where “Lisa, heart-set on becoming a princess, is surprised to learn being bad might be more fun.”
Remembering It’s a short film starring Brie Larson, playing “a writer who loses a very important idea when her phone rings. Personified as golden light, the lost idea is found by the writer’s inner child, who takes us on a journey through The World of Imagination.” Weird.
Obi-Wan Kenobi: A Jedi’s Return Another making-of doc, this one for the most recent Star Wars series.
Frozen and Frozen 2 singalong variants Surprised these weren’t already there.
Some Dancing With The Stars thing to entertain your mother
Tierra Incognita Looks to be a Latin American series Disney is licensing in the US. Poor show, buried so deep….no one will know you exist.
The current layout of the Disney+ menu will not fit all these things at once, so some will literally get buried and no one will ever know they’re there (like Pinocchio, probably). The avalanche happens September 8.
