    1. Nathan Gamerdog April 13, 2021

      The people who run this site don't work at Disney, there is a feature on Disney+ where you can recommend content that you would like on disney+

  4. Robert April 15, 2021

    May looks like a month where nothing appeals to me. I was hoping they would keep adding legacy content but we are back to the same. Disappointing.

  5. Bengy4ever April 15, 2021

    Where’s Pepper Ann?

  6. Hannah April 17, 2021

    Looks like Wander Over Yonder is finally being added! Do wish that more 90s and 2000s shows would be added.

  7. ScionStorm April 18, 2021

    April was such a great month for legacy/vault titles. May seems so disappointing in comparison. Most of what's coming is just the latest completed season of currently airing shows. When will they give us their whole Zorro collection(2 tv shows, specials)? The original Lost in Space? Even Mickey Mouse Club. The deepest cut May gives us is a single 90s Wonderful World of Disney movie.

    1. Hannah April 22, 2021

      Plus they're still missing shows like Lloyd in Space, House of Mouse, Dave the Barbarian and Aladdin the series.

  8. Nathan Gamerdog April 18, 2021

    I'm happy we are getting many more 20th century studios films.

    1. Steve April 22, 2021

      I HOPE WE SEE CLASSIC LOST IN SPACE SERIES LAND OF GIANTS, SERIES VOYAGE TO BOTTOM OF THE SEA SERIES THINK THESE WERE BY 20th CENTURY , MORE 40s 50s 60s FILMS AND SERIES .

  9. Andrew April 23, 2021

    I've been waiting several months for 'Aladdin: Live From the West End'. When is it coming? I really want to see Jonathon Freeman reprise his role as Jafar from the movie.

    1. Hannah April 23, 2021

      Probably never. They haven't even added Aladdin the series yet. Also they don't care about UK content, since preschooler shows don't even have their British dubs and when I asked about them on Reddit, they deleted my thread because they thought it was spam... such ignorance.

    2. ScionStorm April 29, 2021

      They are probably holding it for July like last year's Hamilton.

  10. Owen Buddery April 27, 2021

    I would really hope that Disney's special agent OSO comes to Disney plus in the UK at some point in 2021 I really hope that Disney looks at it for Disney plus across the World

    1. Hannah April 28, 2021

      The problem is that the UK is missing most preschooler content, probably because + can't be bothered to add in the UK dubs for shows.

  11. ScionStorm May 1, 2021

    The May releases video says Gulliver's Travels is coming in May. Can we find out what week it's expected to arrive?
