Here’s Everything New on Disney Plus in May 2020

Disney+ has just revealed everything coming to the service in June and it’s a lot.
There are brand new episodes of Disney+ originals Be Our Chef (including the season finale), behind-the-scenes documentary series Disney Gallery: The Mandalorian, It’s a Dog’s Life with Bill Farmer, and One Day at Disney, plus the debut of brilliant new documentary series Into the Unknown: Making of Frozen II, a surprisingly honest look at the last year of production on the Disney animated blockbuster. Plus, there’s the debut of Kenneth Branagh’s Artemis Fowl, Disney’s big live-action adventure starring Josh Gad, Judi Dench and Colin Farrell, which was supposed to debut on the big screen this summer before this whole global pandemic struck.
Additionally, there are a ton of nifty catalog titles appearing on the service this month, among them documentary Walt & El Grupo, animated classic Tarzan (and its direct-to-video sequel), and several installments from the classic Disneyland TV series, including The Story of the Animated Drawing, Man in Space and Mars and Beyond. Overall, it’s going to be a very good month.
