The Spiderwick Chronicles

During Disney+ Day, it was announced that Disney was creating a new live-action series, “The Spiderwick Chronicles,” a modern coming-of-age story combined with fantasy adventure from Paramount Television Studios and 20th Television, one of the Disney Television Studios. The series, based on the beloved, best-selling books, follows the Grace Family—twin brothers Jared and Simon, their sister Mallory and mother Helen—as they move into their dilapidated ancestral home. They begin to unravel a dark mystery about their great-great Uncle who once discovered the secret and sometimes dangerous faerie world.


Chip ‘n’ Dale Rescue Rangers

Diary Of A Wimpy Kid: Rodrick Rules

The second animated film based on the second book in the best selling book series.  It tells the story of Greg and Rodrick, two brothers, who  are always at odds with each other and rarely ever get along. However, their parents are tired of their antics and constant fights, so they try to make them bond.

Check in with everyone’s favorite healthcare companion in a trailer for his new Disney+ Original Series. “Baymax,” Walt Disney Animation Studios’ first-ever animated series, starts streaming exclusively on Disney+ in Summer 2022.


Rise

“Rise,” is a new film from Disney based on the triumphant real life story about the remarkable family that produced the first trio of brothers to become NBA champions in the history of the league– Giannis and Thanasis Antetokounmpo of the Milwaukee Bucks and Los Angeles Laker Kostas Antetokounmpo–will debut in 2022 on Disney+.

Zootopia+

Go back to the fast-paced mammal metropolis of Zootopia with new art from Walt Disney Animation Studios’ “Zootopia+,” a new short-form series coming to Disney+ in 2022.


In 2022, Walt Disney Animation is also releasing a new theatrical film:

Strange World

The original action-adventure journeys deep into an uncharted and treacherous land where fantastical creatures await the legendary Clades, a family of explorers whose differences threaten to topple their latest—and by far— most crucial mission. According to director Don Hall, “Strange World” is a nod to pulp magazines—popular fiction from the first half of the 20th century that was printed on inexpensive wood pulp paper. “I loved reading the old issues of pulps growing up,” he said. “They were big adventures in which a group of explorers might discover a hidden world or ancient creatures. They’ve been a huge inspiration for ‘Strange World.’ “Strange World” releases in cinemas on November 23rd, 2022. So it could slide onto Disney+ by Christmas, if it follows what Disney did with “Encanto”.



Disney Branded Television is also releasing many new shows and films in 2022, which will also be available on the Disney Channel.

Here’s a look at a few highlights:


Alice’s Wonderland Bakery

Slated to debut in 2022, the series centers on Alice, the great-granddaughter of the original heroine and a budding young baker at the enchanted Wonderland Bakery, where treats bring a new generation of characters together.



BUNK’D – Season 6

Season six, “BUNK’D: Learning the Ropes,” begins as Lou, Parker, Destiny and Noah arrive at the soon-to-be Kikiwaka Ranch in Dusty Tush, Wyoming, where Lou must convince the surly owner, a.k.a. “The Marshal” to officially sell the property to her. In the meantime, counselors Noah and Destiny have their hands full with the newly arrived campers, including Bill, a no-nonsense descendant of famous cowboy Bill Pickett who prefers roping cattle to hanging out with friends; Winnie, a fearless girl who’s earned the nickname “Wild Winnie” by breaking the rules and occasionally blowing things up; and Jake, a laid-back, easy-going boy who also happens to be a video-gaming fanatic.

Note: Due to a long-standing contract, BUNK’D won’t be released on Disney+ in the US



Firebuds

Set in a fantastical world where talking vehicles live, work and play with the humans who drive them, “Firebuds” follows a boy and his firetruck as they team up with their first responder friends to help others in their community with problems, both big and small. Whether rescuing a young car that’s stuck in a tree, tracking down lost Dalmatian puppies or helping their neighbors stock up on emergency supplies during a blackout, the Firebuds highlight the importance of teamwork and helping your fellow citizens.


ZOMBIES 3

In “ZOMBIES 3,” Zed and Addison are beginning their final year at Seabrook High in the town that’s become a safe haven for monsters and humans alike. Zed is anticipating an athletic scholarship that will make him the first Zombie to attend college, while Addison is gearing up for Seabrook’s first international cheer-off competition. Then suddenly, extraterrestrial beings appear around Seabrook, provoking something other than friendly competition.


Meet The Mayhems

At the center of the story is teenage Havoc, who stands up against the leader of all villains, forcing her entire family to change their identities and relocate to a Texas suburb where she now goes by the name Amy. With the help of her effervescent new neighbor Hartley, she must somehow hide her superpowers and quell her villainous nature in favor of something she’s fought against all her life — being normal.


Secrets Of Sulphur Springs – Season 2

In season two of “Secrets of Sulphur Springs,” Griffin and Harper unravel new mysteries about The Tremont, and Harper follows the real ghost back to the 1930s to learn more about her family’s deep-seated connection to the hotel. When the power source to the time machine is unintentionally taken and the portal disappears, Harper becomes trapped in the past with her great-uncle Sam and great-great-grandfather Elijah, while her great-grandmother Daisy is left to navigate the present. With help from Savannah from her new life in 1962, the friends attempt to fix the time machine and bring back the portal before it’s too late and their lives are forever changed.

    I'm looking forward to a TV show The Prydain Chronicles TV series, Artemis Fowl TV series, The Sword in the Stone TV series. Seriously Disney Plus needs to reboot Artemis Fowl, The Black Cauldron, because they didn't follow the books. I want them to try again with those TV show reboots. I'm aware that The Sword in the Stone remake movie is in the making but, I'd rather have it follow the book for example, the Sword in the Stone cartoon cut out so many scenes from the book including Arthur meeting Robin Wood and his Merry Men, fighting orcs, Arthur turned into an ant and meeting the ant colony, Arthur and Merlin storming into the Giants dungeon tower rescuing prisoners, Arthur going on a boar hunt with the men have been cut out in the cartoon. Also Kay was Arthurs age not older than he was, also Madam Mim was more menacing in the book and kidnapped both Arthur and Kay. Also I want Disney Plus to release more classic Donald Duck, Goofy, Mickey Mouse, Silly Symphony cartoons including Goofy's Gymnastics, Window Cleaners, The Clock Watcher, The Flying Mouse absoulty needs to be on Disney Plus. They also need to put on live action films and TV shows including Son of Flubber, Johnny Tremain, North Avenue Irregulars, Tower of Terror, The Jungle Book 1994, Heidi 1993, Buzz Lightyear of Star Command, House of Mouse, Dumbo Circus, Welcome to Pooh Corner, Alice Adventures in Wonderland, The Famous Jett Jackson, Aaron Stone, The All New Mickey Mouse Club on Disney Plus, Bear in the Big Blue House needs to be on Disney Plus.
