Nov 27 2020, 8:15 pm

As if we needed any more excuses to stay inside this weekend, the wonderful world of Disney is getting a bit more wonderful thanks to a slew of new movies and shows coming to Disney Plus.

It’s arguably the best time in the history of humanity to sink into your couch and stream.

From Mickey Mouse, the Mandalorian, and a reimagining of a Disney classic, here is what’s new this weekend on Disney Plus and some content from the week before.

Star Wars: The Mandalorian – Season 2 – Episode 5

In episode 5, 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 Wonderful World of Mickey Mouse – Episode 3 & 4

This week, Mickey, Donald, and Goofy experience tomorrow’s technology today when they sneak into Professor Von Drake’s latest invention.

Black Beauty

In this modern-day reimagining of Anna Sewell’s timeless classic, we follow Black Beauty, a wild horse born free in the American West. Rounded up and taken away from her family, Beauty is brought to Birtwick Stables, where she meets a spirited teenage girl, Jo Green. Beauty and Jo forge an unbreakable bond that carries Beauty through the different chapters, challenges, and adventures of her life.

Disney Plus is also adding some older content, new to the streaming service, this weekend:

Alvin and the Chipmunks: The Road Chip

The threequel to the remake of the Alvin and the Chipmunks franchise, released in 2015.

Marvel’s Spider-man: Maximum Venom (S3)

An animated version of the popular superhero Spider-Man.

Once Upon a Time in Wonderland

In Victorian England, the young and beautiful Alice tells a tale of a strange new land that exists on the other side of a rabbit hole.

And here are some shows, documentaries, and movies from earlier this month:

Star Wars: The Mandalorian – Season 2 – Episode 4

Season 2 episode 4 of the popular show that follows a lone bounty hunter in the outer reaches of the galaxy, far from the authority of the New Republic.

Marvel 616

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.

The Real Right Stuff

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.

Here are a few new releases that debut earlier on this week:

LEGO Star Wars Holiday Special

The new LEGO special is the first to debut on Disney+ and will continue the rich legacy of collaboration between Lucasfilm and LEGO – playful adventures told in the endearingly irreverent way that only LEGO Star Wars co-branded content can.

The Wonderful World of Mickey Mouse – Episode 1 & 2

In The Wonderful World of Mickey Mouse, it’s nothing but fun and excitement for Mickey and his best pals – Minnie, Donald, Daisy, Goofy and Pluto – as they embark on their greatest adventures yet, navigating the curveballs of a wild and zany world where the magic of Disney makes the impossible possible
