Upcoming Family Shows on Disney+
Star Wars features this season on Disney+ with the arrival of Obi-Wan Kenobi and LEGO All Stars Star Wars; other picks include Goodbye Christopher Robin and Tim Burton’s Corpse Bride.
The big premiere this season is Obi-Wan Kenobi with Ewan McGregor returning as Obi-Wan, having played the role in Star Wars Episodes One, Two and Three: The Phantom Menace, Attack of the Clones and Revenge of the Sith. The new series kicks off 10 years after the dramatic events of Revenge of the Sith when Anakin Skywalker (Hayden Christensen) became Vader after being left for dead by Obi-Wan, who was once his Jedi Master.
Chip and Dale: Rescue Rangers
Chip and Dale are living amongst cartoons and humans in modern-day Los Angeles, but their lives are quite different now. It has been decades since their successful television series was canceled, and Chip has succumbed to a life of suburban domesticity as an insurance salesman. Dale, meanwhile, has had CGI surgery and works the nostalgia convention circuit, desperate to relive his glory days. When a former castmate mysteriously disappears, Chip and Dale must repair their broken friendship and take on their Rescue Rangers detective personas once again to save their friend’s life.
Tim Burton’s Corpse Bride
Victor (voiced by Johnny Depp) and Victoria’s (Emily Watson) families have arranged their marriage. Though they like each other, Victor is nervous about the ceremony. While he’s in a forest practicing his lines for the wedding, a tree branch becomes a hand that drags him to the land of the dead. It belongs to Emily, who was murdered after eloping with her love and wants to marry Victor. Victor must get back aboveground before Victoria marries the villainous Barkis Bittern (played by Richard E. Grant).
Common Sense Media suggests 10+.
