April is packed with brand new original programming that will be available exclusively on Disney+ globally. There are three live-action drama series dropping new episodes throughout the month and a brand new special National Geographic documentary series from James Cameron arriving on Earth Day.
Here’s a look at what Disney+ Originals are coming throughout April:
The Falcon And The Winter Soldier
The Falcon and The Winter Soldier is a new six-part series starring Anthony Mackie as Sam Wilson aka The Falcon, and Sebastian Stan as Bucky Barnes aka The Winter Soldier. The pair, who came together in the final moments of “Avengers: Endgame,” team up on a global adventure that tests their abilities—and their patience. Directed by Kari Skogland with Malcolm Spellman serving as head writer, the six-episode series also stars Daniel Brühl as Baron Zemo, Emily VanCamp as Sharon Carter, and Wyatt Russell as John Walker.
New episodes will be dropping each Friday in April.
The Mighty Ducks: Game Changers
Nearly 30 years after first taking flight, “The Mighty Ducks” returns in a brand new chapter starring Lauren Graham and Emilio Estevez in the iconic role he originated as legendary Coach Gordon Bombay.
In the 10-episode season set in present-day Minnesota, the Mighty Ducks have evolved from scrappy underdogs to an ultra-competitive, powerhouse youth hockey team. After 12-year-old Evan Morrow (Brady Noon) is unceremoniously cut from the Ducks, he and his mom, Alex (Lauren Graham), set out to build their own team of misfits to challenge the cutthroat, win-at-all-costs culture of youth sports today. With the help of Gordon Bombay, they rediscover the joys of playing just for love of the game.
New episodes will be arriving on Disney+ throughout April.
After getting ousted from the NCAA, a hothead men’s basketball coach must take a job at an all-girls high school. He soon learns that teenage girls are more than just X’s and O’s; they require empathy and vulnerability — foreign concepts for the stoic Coach Korn (John Stamos). By learning how to connect with his players, Marvyn starts to grow into the person he’s always hoped to be. The girls learn to take themselves more seriously, finding their footing both on and oﬀ the court.
New episodes will start to drop onto Disney+ on Friday’s from April 16th.
Earth Moods takes viewers on the ultimate retreat—transporting them to a vast array of colorful and calming corners of the world. Viewers travel to blue glaciers, arid deserts, lush rainforests and pulsating metropolises to escape from the cacophony of everyday life. Each “mood” gives the audience an opportunity to relax and reset as the sound of music and the natural world washes over them.
The first batch of Earth Moods episodes will be arriving on Disney+ on April 16th
“Secrets Of The Whales”
Epic, revealing and emotional, that’s what you get when immersed in the secretive world of whales and see life and love from their perspectives. From Academy Award-winning filmmaker and conservationist James Cameron, the Disney+ Original series SECRETS OF THE WHALES from National Geographic plunges viewers deep within the epicenter of whale culture to experience the extraordinary communication skills and intricate social structures of five different whale species: orcas, humpbacks, belugas, narwhals and sperm whales.
Featuring the expansive knowledge and skill of acclaimed National Geographic Explorer and Photographer Brian Skerry, the four-part Earth Day special-event series unveils new science and technology to spotlight whales as they make lifelong friendships, teach clan heritage and traditions to their young, and grieve deeply for the loss of loved ones. Filmed over three years in 24 global locations, throughout this epic journey, we learn that whales are far more complex and more like us than ever imagined. This is a personal story that very few are lucky enough to witness … until now.
SECRETS OF THE WHALES is narrated by award-winning actress and conservationist Sigourney Weaver (“Alien,” “Avatar,” “Gorillas in the Mist”) and scored by French composer Raphaelle Thibaut (“Maleficent: Mistress of Evil,” “The Act”).
All four episodes of “Secrets Of The Whales” will be arriving on Disney+ on Earth Day, which is Thursday 22nd April.
Assembled: The Making of The Falcon and The Winter Soldier
In Assembled: The Falcon and The Winter Soldier, you’ll find out everything you’ll need to know about the making of this hard hitting, high-flying series.
This episode of “Assembled” will be arriving on Disney+ on Friday 30th April.
