The world of Pandora makes its triumphant return to Disney+, a risk-averse teenager tries to complete her to-do list, and the amazing true story of a janitor who came up with some of the Cheetos love so much. Let’s take a look at what to watch this weekend on Disney+.
AVATAR: THE WAY OF WATER
“Avatar: The Way of Water” reaches new heights and explores undiscovered depths as James Cameron returns to the world of Pandora in this emotionally packed action adventure. Set more than a decade after the events of the first film, “Avatar: The Way of Water” launches the story of the Sully family (Jake, Neytiri, and their kids), the trouble that follows them, the lengths they go to keep each other safe, the battles they fight to stay alive, and the tragedies they endure. All of this against the backdrop of the breathtaking seascapes of Pandora, where audiences are introduced to new Na’vi cultures and a range of exotic sea creatures.
HAILEY’S ON IT
Animated comedy-adventure “Hailey’s On It!” follows Hailey, a risk-averse but resourceful teenager on a mission to complete every item on her long list of challenging — and sometimes impractical — tasks in order to save the world. Whether she’s tackling every ride at the county fair, performing in a musical, reuniting a singing duo or facing her ever-growing and complicated feelings toward her best friend Scott, Hailey is always encountering new challenges ― and more opportunities to conquer her fears.
“Flamin’ Hot” is the inspiring true story of Richard Montañez, the Frito Lay janitor who channelled his Mexican American heritage and upbringing to turn the iconic Flamin’ Hot Cheetos into a snack that disrupted the food industry and became a global pop culture phenomenon.
AMERICA’S NATIONAL PARKS
National Geographic takes viewers on an extraordinary venture across world-famous and lesser-known national parks to reveal the diversity and wonder of this beautiful country, from the lush valley floors of Yosemite to the constantly erupting volcanoes of Hawai’i.
Indigenous Alaskans live on ancient lands but face a new climate of challenges.
And, if you are in the mood for some library content, check out “Robin Hood.” The 1973 animated film features anthropomorphic animals in the roles of the legendary characters. The film features Phil Harris as Little John, a very similar voice role to Baloo in “The Jungle Book,” and foxes as Robin Hood and Maid Marion. This film has become a cult classic among Disney fans.
Those are my picks. What will you be watching on Disney+ this weekend?
