Lots of low-key TV to sift through in there, but the eye-catcher is undoubtedly Incredibles 2. The long-awaited animated sequel also ended up being long-awaited for Disney Plus. That’s because it was licensed to Netflix for 18 months. That 18 month sojourn is now over, though, bringing another member of the Disney family back under their roof.

Incredibles 2 was a smash hit when it finally released back in 2018. Can’t say I was quite as enamoured with it, though I loved the fact that the voice cast was fronted by Better Call Saul stars. Bob Odenkirk and Jonathan Banks are brilliant talents who make anything they’re in more watchable. But the film left me a little cold, leaving the impression of a project that came 10 years too late. The story picked up right where the first left off, but the intervening years created a dissonance I just couldn’t get over.

As for the rest of the new content, one can’t help but notice a pattern. Alaska Animal Rescue, Animal Showdown, Big Cat Games, Dr. Oakley, Yukon Vet….is it wildlife season at Mickey Mouse’s house, or is this par for the course? Disney Plus regulars are welcome to explain more in the comments section, but it seems this month has gone out with an animal-themed bang.
