It’s the weekend and once again, Disney has provided us with a host of new offerings to enjoy on Disney+. This week has been dominated by new Star Wars content to tie in with one of my personal favourite holidays of the year, “Star Wars Day!”.

Here are a few of my personal highlights of what to watch this weekend on Disney+:

Star Wars: The Bad Batch

If you’re only watching one thing on Disney+ this week, it’s probably going to be this.  If you enjoyed the other Star Wars animated series, “The Clone Wars” or “Rebels”, then this is a must-watch.  The first episode dropped on Tuesday and introduced us to all the new characters, a group of misfit Clone Troopers, who must find a new way of life after Order 66 is issued.  This series will bridge the gap between the original and prequel trilogies as the Galatic Empire takes control over the galaxy.

Maggie Simpsons In “The Force Awakens From It’s Nap”

This little  Simpsons short is well-worth checking out, especially for fans of “Star Wars” or “The Simpsons”.    I loved it, and it hit the spot perfectly since there are a couple of gags that did make me chuckle, especially the one with the Walt Disney Company stocks dropping.  If you enjoyed the other Maggie Simpson shorts (which are also available on Disney+), then you’ll love this one too.

Big Shot – Episode 4

The fourth episode of “Big Shot” arrived on Disney+ this week and this is a series I’d recommend all Disney+ subscribers check out, because it’s a great family drama and is a little more mature than “The Mighty Ducks: Game Changers”.  This latest episode sees one of the students struggle with being popular on social media and the issues of being an influencer, plus Coach Korn struggles with how people are treating him after Harper’s exposé goes viral.

New Girl

Every episode of the popular 20th Television series arrived on Disney+ in the UK and Ireland this week.  Jess, a middle-school teacher, moves into an apartment with three men after she finds her boyfriend with another woman and breaks up with him.  This series continues to be extremely popular on the weekly Nielsen streaming chart, so is a huge show to come to Disney+.  The show is already available on Disney+ in some countries like Australia and Caanda.

Grown-ish – Season 3 – Episode 2

The second episode of the third season of Grown-Ish arrived on Disney+ in the UK and Ireland this week.  This episode sees the group come to terms with the shocking surprise of Nomi being pregnant and Zoey really struggles with the news, highlighting some of her own issues with her friends.  I’ve been really enjoying catching up on this series last month, when it debuted on Disney+ and with new episodes dropping weekly onto Disney+, it’s a nice change from the more traditional Disney+ shows, as it deals with much deeper issues.   This episode is already available on Disney+ in Canada and Australia.
