Everything New You Can Stream on Disney+ in May 2021

By Zach Johnson

We have a good feeling about this.

On Tuesday, May 4—aka Star Wars Day—Disney+ will debut the eagerly awaited first episode of the original animated series Star Wars: The Bad Batch, which follows the elite and experimental clones of the Bad Batch as they find their way in a rapidly changing galaxy in the immediate aftermath of the Clone War. The second episode will follow on Friday, May 7, along with new episodes of Big Shot and Mighty Ducks: Game Changers, two other Disney+ Originals. A week later, the East High drama club will stage a new production, Disney’s Beauty and the Beast, when season two of High School Musical: The Musical: The Series kicks off. On Friday, May 21, five new shorts will debut as part of Inside Pixar: Unpacked. LAUNCHPAD, a collection of six live-action shorts from a new generation of dynamic storytellers, debuts Friday, May 28—the same day the film Cruella releases simultaneously in theaters and on Disney+ with Premier Access for a one-time added fee.

Throughout the month, Disney+ will add even more fan-favorite films, series, and shorts to its library, including Big City Greens (Season 2), Fantastic Four: Rise of the Silver Surfer, Life Below Zero (Season 15), Mickey Mouse Mixed-Up Adventures (Season 1), Race to the Center of the Earth (Season 1), Running Wild with Bear Grylls (Season 6), Tinker Bell and the Legend of the Neverbeast, Wild Hearts Can’t Be Broken, X-Men: The Last Stand, and more.
