There are many exclusive originals coming to Disney+ as well. The Star Wars franchise will be back with The Mandalorian and Clone Wars. Marvel has many new movies and series, including WandaVision, Loki, What If…?, and The Falcon and the Winter Soldier. Look for new Pixar content like Monsters at Work, and content from Disney including Timmy Failure and the Christmas movie Noelle.

Along with existing and original content, Disney+ will be adding bonus content. If you like getting behind the scenes looks at how your favorite movies were made, you’re in luck. Disney+ will include many of the DVD and Blu Ray Extras that are usually missing when streaming content.
