Disney Plus launched last year with most of Disney’s back catalog, but the platform hasn’t reached maximum capacity just yet. In addition to original content, like the upcoming episodes of Marvel’s Hero Project, there are a whole host of movies and shows wrapped up under other streaming services and licenses. Each month, a few new titles will trickle onto Disney Plus.
This month brings the behind-the-scenes documentary about the making of Frozen 2, along with Artemis Fowl’s streaming debut. Also coming to the platform are some stragglers from Disney’s animation catalog, like Tarzan. There is also the live action Percy Jackson movie, but we don’t talk about that.
