Disney Plus Is Adding 8 New Movies/TV Shows This Week


October 30th will mark the final Disney Plus content drop of the month and it brings with it a handful of exciting new additions to the platform’s library that you’ll want to check out. But most importantly, if you have a subscription to the service, there’s a high chance that you’re a Star Wars fan who’s looking forward to season 2 of a very special TV series – and that wait is nearly over.

That’s right – The Mandalorian will be back on our screens this week, finally answering the call of the millions of fans who made it the most-anticipated returning show of the year. Of course, the 30th is only bringing the very first episode of the new season, with the rest to follow every Friday for a total of eight weeks.

Even so, folks are sure to be excited to finally catch back up with the titular bounty hunter and his incredibly adorable companion Baby Yoda (also known as The Child). Season 2 will see the duo forming fresh allegiances and fighting bad guys as they make their way through the galaxy. Not much is known about the story beats that we’ll see in the upcoming episodes, but the first run’s finale hints that they’re likely to focus on a search for The Child’s homeworld.

If you’re one of the few people who isn’t a fan of The Mandalorian, though, you can check out the list below to see everything coming to Disney Plus this week.

  1. Disney the Owl House (Season 1)
  2. Magic of Disney’s Animal Kingdom (Episode 106)
  3. One Day At Disney (Episode 148)
  4. The Mandalorian (Season Premiere)
  5. The Right Stuff (Episode 105)
  6. The Sorcerer’s Apprentice

As you can see, there are at least a few other cool things to enjoy, such as underrated Nicolas Cage flick The Sorcerer’s Apprentice or the first season of the Nat Geo series X-Ray Earth. Either way, hopefully this will hold you over until November brings even more great stuff to watch on Disney Plus.
