'Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings,' 'Jungle Cruise,' and everything else you're going to want to watch this weekend.
To celebrate the two-year anniversary of the streaming service, Disney has declared today “Disney+ Day” and while it’s tempting to roll your eyes at this megacorporation creating a holiday for itself, there are some serious perks that you’re going to want to check out. Here is everything you should know to make the most of Disney+ Day, including new releases and some truly great deals for potential subscribers.
The Must-Watch Titles
The two biggest new releases are Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings and Jungle Cruise (which was previously available to purchase through Disney+ Premier Access) and you’ve also got a new series of Frozen shorts and the Star Wars documentary Under The Helmet: The Legacy Of Boba Fett to get you even more pumped for the upcoming series.
There’s also a very short look at the upcoming Obi-Wan Kenobi series, which is only available on Disney+
The biggest part of “Disney+ Day” is the plethora of new movies that are being released, including Home Sweet Home Alone, Enchanted, and Spin now available to watch.
The focus is mainly on movies but there are a couple of new seasons you can check out, namely the second season of The World According to Jeff Goldblum, the third season of Fancy Nancy, and the entire first season of Entrelazados.
There are a few shorts being released as well, including a new series of Frozen shorts, a short semi-sequel to Pixar’s Luca titled Ciao Alberto, The Simpsons in Plusaversary, and a collection of shorts from Walt Disney Animation Studios.
And if you’re the type of nerd that geeks out on special features and behind-the-scenes access, you’re definitely going to want to see Under The Helmet: The Legacy Of Boba Fett, Marvel Assembled: The Making of Shang-Chi and The Legend of The Ten Rings, Marvel Studios’ 2021 Disney Plus Day Special, The Making of Happier than Ever: A Love Letter to Los Angeles, and Pixar 2021 Disney+ Day Special.

Disney+ subscribers will be able to view 13 MCU movies in an expanded IMAX aspect ratio, including Avengers: Infinity War, Avengers: Endgame, Guardians of the Galaxy: Volumes 1 & 2, Iron Man, Thor Ragnarok, and Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings. All you have to do is search “IMAX” and the titles will be there for you to watch.
