Given the success of WandaVision, and the upcoming addition of more adult-themed content to the platform (at least internationally), Disney Plus are having a pretty good year so far. After making a lot of fresh material available this week, including the full run of the original version of The Muppet Show, D+ have a strong lineup of programming coming our way as we head into March. What, then, can we expect on the service this February 26th?
Well, the eighth and penultimate episode of WandaVision builds off a great reveal at the end of last week’s instalment and those invested in the show will be hoping that Marvel can end the season on a high. In fact, we wouldn’t be surprised if there are more cameos from the wider universe in store.
Fans of Frozen, meanwhile, will be pleased with the arrival of Myth: A Frozen Tale, an animated short film that continues the recent trend from Disney of producing bite-sized movies based on their popular franchises. From the Disney Channel archives, we’re also getting all three seasons of Pair of Kings, a sitcom about twins who find out they’re heirs to a fictional Pacific Island nation, as well as Disney Channel Games 2008. In addition, the Mouse House are putting out Roll it Back, wherein a family have to act out choices selected by a live-studio audience, and the animated American Dragon: Jake Long.
Aside from these library expansions, Disney Plus will become home to the first five episodes of Secrets of Sulphur Springs, a new mystery series that launched on the Disney Channel in January 2021. Set in Louisiana, the show follows a 12-year-old and his friend as they travel through a portal to the distant past of 1990 to solve a disappearance. Other highlights include a new season of Car SOS, and nature documentary Okavango: River of Dreams, with the full list of what’s coming to D+ below:

With plenty more originals and library updates arriving in March, Disney Plus is becoming indispensable. And even with some of the recent controversies around a certain ex-cast member from The Mandalorian, we’re still expecting another strong year for one of the more serious competitors to Netflix’s streaming crown.
