The Reel Buzz: Everything coming to Disney+ in May

May 1, 2021

“Star Wars” fans can celebrate May the Fourth Be With You all month long on Disney Plus.

The streaming platform is kicking off the franchise holiday by launching the new series “Star Wars: Bad Batch” on May 4, with new episodes every Friday going forward. The animated program centers around the experimental unit Clone Force 99 as it navigates the recently transformed Galactic Empire.

This month also sees new episodes of “The Mighty Ducks” sequel series “The Mighty Ducks: Game Changers,” and the premiere of season 2 of “High School Musical: The Series.”

But the main action is all about the dogs. Disney’s next big blockbuster is set to be “Cruella,” which tells the origin story of the “101 Dalmatians” villainess. The live-action film stars Oscar winner Emma Stone in the titular role and will premiere in theaters and on the streaming platform simultaneously on May 28th.

“Cruella” will stream on Disney+ with Premier Access, which usually requires an additional $30 fee for subscribers.
