New to Disney Plus: Raya and the Last Dragon, Falcon and Winter Soldier and more in March 2021
Disney Plus released in 2015 with the majority of Disney’s back brochure, however the platform hasn’t reached optimum capability right now. In addition to original content like the upcoming episodes of Marvel’s Hero Project, there’s 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.
Disney’s newest animated feature, Raya and the Last Dragon, will come to Premier Access. WandaVision will finish up — but don’t worry, because The Falcon and the Winter Season Soldier premieres right after. The new Mighty Ducks series will also arrive.
