A brand new Disney+ Original Series makes its debut, the latest series from Marvel heads to Pakistan, and some ESPN documentary series look at an important law in American history and an athlete who was on top of the world before it all came crashing down. Let’s take a look at what to watch on Disney+ this weekend.
The popular healthcare robot from “Big Hero 6” returns in a new series of healthcare capers across San Fransokyo. Baymax just wants to help others and it shows in this series of shorts. I found it to be a lot of fun.
Kamala Khan and her mother travel to Pakistan to spend time with her grandmother after the bangle showed both Kamala and her grandmother a train in the past. During her visit, Kamala is trained how to use her powers and then must protect herself and her new trainers from the Djinn who are trying to get her to take them back in time. It’s a fun episode that really makes Ms. Marvel feel like a proper superhero show.
The final two parts of the powerful docuseries that looks at Title IX and its effect on educational and athletic opportunities for women are now available. Episode 3 looks at how professional women’s sports has changed with women who were presented those opportunities from birth. And Episode 4 looks at how things have changed in the past few years and what that could mean for Title IX and opportunities for women.
This two part documentary series takes a look at Lance Armstrong. The man who became an inspiration to many when he survived cancer to go on to win 7 Tour de France races. But, then, became a pariah when the allegations of cheating against him were finally proven and he was officially punished for doping. The documentary studies his character to try to determine why he did it and if it could’ve been avoided or if he was always on this path.
MARVEL STUDIOS ASSEMBLED: THE MAKING OF DR. STRANGE IN THE MULTIVERSE OF MADNESS
The latest film in the Marvel Cinematic Universe gets a behind-the-scenes look in the latest documentary from the “Marvel Studios Assembled” series. Hear from the cast and crew, especially director Sam Raimi, as they discuss what it took to make this film and how they hope it helps the MCU continue to grow. The documentary shows viewers how it builds worlds and universes.
And, if you are looking for some library content, there are a lot of shark documentaries available through National Geographic. The “Sharks Collection” had 25 documentaries on it before July 1st and several more documentaries will be added throughout the month of July. They are some of the most fascinating creatures on Earth.
That’s a look at some of the big things to watch this weekend on Disney+. My question is, what will you be watching?
