With the start of a new month, I’ve picked out some of the best movies coming to Disney+ in Australia and New Zealand in April 2021. There are many classic movies from Disney and 20th Century Studios arriving throughout the month.
Check out our full list of new releases for April, which include more films and series.
Note – This list is based on the Australian release schedule and availability in other countries may vary. This list is subject to change.
Here’s the rundown:
Star Wars: Caravan of Courage
When a family’s spacecraft crashes on the forest moon of planet Endor, teenage son Mace (Eric Walker) and his little sister, Cindel (Aubree Miller), find themselves separated from their parents. Soon these lost children encounter the Ewoks, the small and furry warriors who call the moon home. With the help of these adorable yet fearless natives, brother and sister set out on a quest to rescue their parents from the grip of a vicious monster known as the Gorax.
Star Wars: Ewoks: The Battle for Endor
Marauders raid the Ewok village and steal a power supply they believe to be magical. Wicket helps Cindel escape the evil witch Charal, and they befriend a hermit who may help them save the village.
Both of the Ewok films will arrive on Disney+ on Friday 2nd April.
South Pacific (1959)
Nurse Nellie Forbush (Mitzi Gaynor) of the U.S. Navy falls for middle-aged French plantation owner Emile De Becque (Rossano Brazzi), but recoils upon discovering that he’s fathered two mixed-race children. When Nellie leaves him, the heartbroken Emile agrees to take on a dangerous espionage mission. In his absence, Nellie struggles to reconcile her prejudices with her love for him — and after she spends time with his children and comes to care for them, fears that Emile may not return alive.
This classic 1950s film is arriving on Disney+ on Friday 30th April.
Squanto: A Warrior’s Tale
It’s the 17th century, and Native American Squanto (Adam Beach) roams free in the New World until he’s captured by visiting sailors who take him back to England. Monk Brother Daniel (Mandy Patinkin) teaches him social customs, but other Englishmen aren’t as kind. Squanto becomes the unwilling star of performances that highlight his fighting skills, but he eventually engineers a return trip to America. He finds that his home has changed forever, and he must chart a new path for his people.
Squanto: A Warrior’s Tale is coming to Disney+ on Friday 2nd April.
