Disney+ the brand new streaming service that is expected to launch later this year just revealed a number of new shows that will be coming to the platform. Below we’ve listed all the new shows and a short description of each one.
Walt Disney Imagineering Documentary Series
Disney has just announced the long-awaited but still untitled Walt Disney Imagineering Documentary Series will be part of the Disney+ streaming service. The upcoming series will be, “a Disney fan’s dream, this documentary series looks at the more than 65-year history of Walt Disney Imagineering through parallel storylines focused on the people, the craft, and the business.”
Disney has not confirmed this but it seems like this projected created by Leslie Iwerks is the same one that was teased at the 2015 D23 Expo. That project, which was called “The Imagineering Story” has been highly anticipated since then. When “The Imagineering Story” was announced in 2015 it appeared to be a film documentary, but now with this announcement, it seems as if the project has been expanded to a television series.
The new series will “feature exclusive interviews and never-before-seen footage from Disney parks around the globe.”
Marvel’s Hero Project
This new series will focus on the good that “several young heroes are making in their own communities.” Marvel’s Hero Project will showcase the “selfless acts of bravery and kindness” of kids and young adults.
Marvel’s 616 – Working Title
Marvel’s 616 will be an “anthological documentary series exploring the intersection between Marvel’s rich legacy of stories, characters, and creators and the world outside your window.” Each episode will be told a “diverse group of filmmakers,” and will convey how our real-world history, culture, and society have “become inseparable from stories of the Marvel Universe.”
Be Our Chef
It was also announced that Disney+ will have a “playful Disney-inspired cooking competition at Walt Disney World” called Be Our Chef hosted by Angela Kinsey. The show will “give families the chance to create the next great Disney Parks dish.” The winning dish or treat will actually be served in the Disney Parks.
A former cast of a high school musical will be reunited together on screen to perform an encore in this new show produced by Kristen Bell. In the show, former classmates “face faded friendships, former flames, self-doubt, and killer choreography.” Teaming with Broadway stars they must perform musicals like “The Sound of Music,” “Beauty and the Beast,” “Annie,” and more. The show was created by Jason Cohen.
