It’s a new month, which means new movies and TV shows being added to Disney+. But when it comes to Disney, May isn’t just any old month. May 4th is Star Wars Day, and Disney+ is celebrating in style with the premiere of the new animated series Star Wars: The Bad Batch, a sequel spinoff of The Clone Wars executive produced by Dave Filoni. We won’t have to wait long for the second episode, as that one drops May 7th before new episodes roll out on a weekly basis every Friday throughout May. This month also sees the premiere of the second season of High School Musical: The Musical: The Series, which finds the crew tackling a production of Beauty and the Beast.
May also sees the highly anticipated premiere of the new live-action film Cruella, starring Emma Stone and Emma Thompson. The film – which was directed by I, Tonya filmmaker Craig Gillespie – will be available on the streaming service on May 28th through Disney+ Premier Access, which means you’ll have to pay a premium to watch it at home. Otherwise, Cruella will be playing in theaters starting May 28th as well.
As for library titles, the third X-Men movie X-Men: The Last Stand gets added to the Disney+ catalogue this month, as does the sequel Fantastic Four: Rise of the Silver Surfer.
