From live-action remakes of beloved Disney classics, to lyrical tellings of boyhood and basketball, this month’s lineup of Disney Plus Originals is a hotbed of bingeworthy films, series, and documentaries to save.

Get ready for the biggest season finale in 2023 from ‘The Mandalorian’, a new take of a classic tale with ‘Peter Pan & Wendy’, and a nostalgic look back at one of Walt Disney’s original characters with ‘Oswald the Lucky Rabbit’.

Films

‘Peter Pan & Wendy’

Peter Pan, Neverland resident and leader of the Lost Boys, graces our screens like you’ve never seen him before. In this live-action remake, filmmaker David Lowery takes a stab at reimagining the Boy Who Would Not Grow Up as he recruits three young siblings from London, whisking them away on an unforgettable adventure.

Jude Law plays the notorious role of Captain Hook, while newcomer child actors Alexander Molony and Ever Anderson play the titular characters Peter and Wendy (respectively).

When: Apr. 28

‘SUGA: Road to D-Day’

SUGA, one of 7 members of world-renowned idol group BTS is set to release his solo documentary alongside his debut solo album this April 2023. As he opens up about his mixtape trilogy and his comeback as ‘Agust D’, the documentary shows Suga as a producer and songwriter – tracing his album making process across the world.

Meeting with other global artists including Halsey, Anderson Paak, and Steve Aoiki, SUGA plans to divulge his personal experiences, collaborations, and reservations about staying in the band at the very start of his journey.

When: Apr. 21

TV Series

‘The Mandalorian (Season 3)’

The season three finale of ‘The Mandalorian’ is upon us! While we hate to be parted from our otherworldly friends in a galaxy far far away, this highly anticipated episode finale will no doubt be having us at the edge of our seats. With Bo-Katan and Mando seeking to unite all of Mandalore’s trained combatants and the unknown whereabouts of Moff Gideon – we can only assume that a huge clash between the two forces is near.

Not to mention, the burning image of the dormant Mythosaur tugs at the idea of an even bigger threat sometime later in the series which should be a treat to watch. I have spoken.

When: Episodes returning every Wednesday until Apr. 19

‘The Crossover’

Based on the critically acclaimed best-selling novel by Kwame Alexander of the same name, ‘The Crossover’ follows the story of teen brothers Josh and Jordan Bell, two young basketball phenoms in their own right.

Through lyrical poetry, an adult version of Josh (a.k.a, Filthy McNasty), tells the story of the brothers’ coming of age, on and off the court – as their family moves through the unexpected trials of life.

When: Apr. 5

‘Matildas: The World at Our Feet’
