In a scene from the upcoming documentary The Beach Boys, the band is performing onstage circa 1964 in California. Dennis Wilson is seen playing the drums at the back, positioned higher than the rest of the band. At center stage are Al Jardine, Carl Wilson, Brian Wilson, and Mike Love. They are all singing, and (with the exception of Love) playing guitars. The band members are dressed in white and grey striped short-sleeve shirts and white pants.

What’s Coming to Disney+ in May 2024

By Cecilia Sarantopoulos

May is just around the corner… and so is the highly anticipated addition of several magical titles to Disney+.

Kicking off the excitement on May 4 is the premiere of Star Wars: Tales of the Empire, with all episodes streaming. This six-episode series takes viewers on a journey into the fearsome Galactic Empire through the perspectives of two warriors on divergent paths, spanning different eras.

Following closely on May 5 is the debut of the new Doctor Who series. Join the Doctor (Ncuti Gatwa) and his companion Ruby Sunday (Millie Gibson) as they traverse through time and space, embarking on adventures ranging from England’s Regency era to a war-torn future world.

Also on May 5, fans can watch Season 2 of Monsters at Work, with all episodes streaming. This season puts Tylor Tuskmon’s (voiced by Ben Feldman) journey as a Jokester and his friendship with Val (voiced by Mindy Kaling) to the ultimate test.

Making its debut on May 8 is Let It Be. Director Michael Lindsay-Hogg’s original 1970 film about The Beatles will be available for the first time in over 50 years! And speaking of music, The Beach Boys, a documentary celebrating the legendary band that revolutionized pop music, premieres on May 24!

Mark your calendars for May 22, when Season 2 of Chip ‘n’ Dale: Park Life premieres—following the nervous worrier Chip and laid-back dreamer Dale in their perpetual pursuit of acorns.
