Learn about the lives of Ahsoka Tano and Count Dooku through parables. Cassian Andor continues his journey toward the rebellion. And “The Mysterious Benedict Society” returns. Let’s take a look at what to watch this weekend on Disney+.
STAR WARS: TALES OF THE JEDI
This series features six brand-new animated shorts. Each short is a parable built around Jedi from the prequel era. Journey into the lives of two distinctly different Jedi, Ahsoka Tano and Count Dooku. Each will be put to the test as they make choices that will define their destinies.
STAR WARS: ANDOR
Cassian Andor has been sentenced for crimes against the Empire as he is being pushed toward joining the Rebellion. Now we will see how he responds to the punishment and what happens next as we approach the two-thirds mark of the season.
THE MYSTERIOUS BENEDICT SOCIETY
Based on the best-selling YA book series by Trenton Lee Stewart, season two of “The Mysterious Benedict Society” picks up as the team of four intrepid orphans reunite a year after their first mission, when they were assembled by Mr. Benedict and his cohorts to foil the nefarious “Emergency” created by Benedict’s twin brother Dr. L.D. Curtain. Now they must embark on a perilous journey, relying on wits, intellect, and empathy to try to try to stop Curtain as he shifts to a new strategy with global implications.
THE MIGHTY DUCKS: GAME CHANGERS
Alex leads our crew of old and new Mighty Ducks through their first week of team training with the spirit of summer fun – but she struggles to bring a disengaged Jace into the fold. Coach Cole, meanwhile, drives Team Dominate through power practices, and Evan pushes himself harder than ever. And Maya tries to help Sofi find her inner rebel. When a conflict forces Evan to choose between his new squad and his best friend, we discover an unexpected side of Cole.
MUPPETS HAUNTED MANSION
And, if you are looking for library content, check out last year’s Halloween special, “The Muppets Haunted Mansion.” Gonzo has a chance to win a contest if he can stay the night in the Haunted Mansion. It’s the only good version of “The Haunted Mansion,” so far, and the best Muppets content we’ve had since “The Muppets” in 2011.
That’s my list. What will you be watching this weekend on Disney+?
