Disney Plus Release Calendar: All the Movies and TV Shows Coming Soon to Disney Plus

Though Disney+ may already have the majority of Disney's movies, the MCU and the Star Wars saga, the upcoming release schedule for the streaming service offers plenty more from the worlds of Marvel, Star Wars and Disney itself.

A Obi-Wan Kenobi series starring Ewan McGregor, a Monsters Inc. spin-off series and a show starring some of the MCU's biggest heroes are just some of the properties coming to Disney+ in the coming months, with live-action remakes of Disney classics also expected alongside reboots of movies like Home Alone and Night at the Museum, as well as dozens of other projects.

What is coming soon to Disney+?

Missing Marvel movies

Though Disney+ has 14 of the 23 MCU movies currently streaming, there are some notable exceptions, including Thor: Ragnarok, Black Panther, Avengers: Infinity War, and Ant-Man and the Wasp. According to The Verge, these four movies will come onto the services in early 2020, after the deal between Marvel and Netflix lapses at the end of 2019. There is no word, however, about when Marvel fans can expect to see The Incredible Hulk and the two MCU Spider-Man movies on Disney+, as these are owned by a different studio.

Marvel series

Disney+ will also offer a number of new Marvel series, featuring the continued adventures of many characters last seen in Avengers: Endgame. These series are The Falcon and the Winter Soldier (starring Anthony Mackie and Sebastian Stan and expected in late 2020), WandaVision (with Elisabeth Olsen and Paul Bettany as Scarlet Witch and Vision, expected in early 2021), Loki (expected in spring 2021 and starring Tom Hiddleston), and Hawkeye, continuing the story of Jeremy Renner's character and expected in fall 2021.

Marvel will also air a number of series revolving around superheroes not yet seen in the MCU, with Ms. Marvel, Moon Knight and She-Hulk all getting shows.

Marvel will also release What If, an animated series that will explore a number of alternate Marvel histories, which is expected in summer 2021 and will see actors like Chris Hemsworth, Samuel L. Jackson and Hayley Atwell return to voice alternate versions of their MCU characters.

Also announced is Marvel's 616, an anthology documentary series "exploring the intersection between Marvel's rich legacy of stories, characters and creators and the world outside your window," according to Bleeding Cool.

Remaining Star Wars films

Star Wars Episodes I through VII and Rogue One were available at the launch of Disney+. These will be joined by The Last Jedi, Solo and the upcoming The Rise of Skywalker, which will all appear on the streaming service by November 2020.
