Pinocchio—Monday, February 7, on Disney+
“Hi-Diddle-Dee-Dee,” it’s this classic’s 82nd anniversary! Woodworker Geppetto (voice of Christian Rub) wishes upon a star that the puppet he created, Pinocchio (voice of Dickie Jones), could become a real boy. That very night, the Blue Fairy (voice of Evelyn Venable) appears and grants Geppetto’s wish and asks Jiminy Cricket (voice of Cliff Edwards) to serve as Pinocchio’s conscience. Jiminy has his work cut out for him when the naïve young boy falls with the wrong crowd; later, Pinocchio redeems himself by saving Geppetto from the clutches of Monstro the whale.

Mother knows best? When Junior’s (Marcus Scribner) girlfriend Olivia (Katlyn Nichol) is accepted into Yale, he turns to Bow (Tracee Ellis Ross) for guidance, asking his mom to convince her to stay in Los Angeles and attend USC instead. Will Bow follow her son’s wishes or encourage Olivia to choose the Ivy League? Meanwhile, Diane (Marsai Martin) and Jack (Miles Brown) discover the inspiration for Dre’s (Anthony Anderson) ads—and it’s hitting a little too close to home.

The Book of Boba Fett

Meanwhile, Fennec (Disney Legend Ming-Na Wen) lays out a plan to fight the crime syndicate. It all culminates with this season finale… Will Boba bring the Rancor out of its cage?
