Happy Disney + Day! 🎂🎉

Did you know that Disney + turns 2 years old today?

Two years ago today, Disney launched their new streaming service titled Disney +.

For the two year anniversary of the launch of the streaming service, Disney + are celebrating with a virtual party filled with brand new releases including must-see TV, shorts, and movies. 

As Winter is fast approaching and temperatures dropping, we'd rather stay inside and stay warm where we can stream our favourite shows! 

Walt Disney Company CEO, Bob Chapek recently said in a statement “This day of appreciation brings to life our mission to entertain, inform, and inspire fans and families around the globe through the power of unparalleled storytelling, and will become an annual tentpole event to be amplified across our global businesses.”

To celebrate two years of Disney +, here's a list of the new movies and shows that will be arriving on Disney + this month including Hawkeye, The Beatles: Get Back, and more!

Hawkeye

Something we've all been waiting for is the release of Hawkeye. This live-action series features Jeremy Runner reprising his role as expert marksman Clint Barton a.k.a Hawkeye and introducing the next generation of heroes in the form of Hailee Steinfeld's Kate Bishop. 

The first two episodes of the new series will be premiering on November 24th.

Christmas

With it ALREADY being November, we are slowly entering the Christmas season and us Disney + subscribers are getting their first batch of winter goodies. One stand out this month is the new Disney + series Olaf Present’s. The animated shorts feature everybody’s favourite snowman, Olaf  who will retell beloved Disney stories with his own artistic flair.

Another new movie to look forward to is Home Sweet Home Alone which is a brand new movie that focuses on Max Mercer, a mischievous young boy who has been left behind while his parents celebrate the holidays in Japan. Home Sweet Home Alone premieres today on Disney +.
