Mar 5 2021, 6:27 pm

Welcome in the first weekend of the month the way you spent most of the winter: streaming Disney Plus from your couch.

Along with the much-anticipated finale of WandaVision, the streaming service is releasing an exciting fantastical epic, and some older titles on the platform’s new Star channel.

Slip into a comfy pair of clothes. Here’s what’s on Disney Plus this weekend:

Raya and the Last Dragon

Raya and the Last Dragon takes us on an exciting, epic journey to the fantasy world of Kumandra, where humans and dragons lived together long ago in harmony. But when an evil force threatened the land, the dragons sacrificed themselves to save humanity. Now, 500 years later, that same evil has returned and it’s up to a lone warrior, Raya, to track down the legendary last dragon to restore the fractured land and its divided people.

WandaVision – Episode 8 (Disney+ Original)

Set in a surreal world inspired by classic American sitcoms, approach WandaVision as if The Brady Bunch were in The Truman Show, meeting The Avengers.
