Disney Plus Announces Over 40 New Movies/TV Shows For October

5 hours ago


With October quickly approaching, it’s time to start looking ahead to what’s coming to all our favorite streaming services next month, and as usual, Disney Plus is first out of the gate in regards to announcing what’s on the way. We’ll get to the full list shortly, but clearly, the big highlight for many will be season 2 of The Mandalorian.

Though it took a while for the Mouse House to begin the marketing campaign for it, the past few weeks have brought us photos, posters and, of course, a stunning full-length trailer for the show’s next run, all of which promise another thrilling adventure. Rumors of behind the scenes turmoil aside, all signs point to The Mandalorian making another big splash on the platform with its second season and we can’t wait to see what Baby Yoda and Mando get up to next.

But the Star Wars show isn’t the only thing headed to Disney Plus in October and below, you can see the full lineup of what’s on the way.

So, quite the meaty roster of new movies and TV shows, then, and there are certainly more than enough things for viewers to spend their time with even if they’re not fans of Baby Yoda. For instance, we’ve got classic Marvel movie X2 joining the streaming service, while forgotten Nicolas Cage flick The Sorcerer’s Apprentice might be worth a watch for those who’ve never seen it.

Of course, there’s also your usual mix of new episodes of a number of the service’s popular shows and a whole lot of documentary content, too. In other words, there’s enough variety on display to keep subscribers happy for another month and though Disney Plus is still lacking a bit when it comes to originals, that should soon change as we’ve got WandaVision to look forward to before the end of 2020, with more MCU shows to follow in 2021.
