It’s Friday, and time to take a look at what’s been added onto Disney+ today in the United Kingdom and Ireland, which includes a brand new episode of “Criminal Minds” and a brand new documentary about Idina Menzel.

Beloved Tony Award-winning actress and singer Idina Menzel’s many triumphs include iconic Broadway roles in productions of “Rent” and “Wicked” as well as the legendary voice of Elsa in Disney’s “Frozen.” Yet, one dream goal has evaded her grasp: to perform a concert at the world-famous Madison Square Garden in her hometown of New York City. From Disney Branded Television and Ideal Partners comes the joyous, inspirational and in-depth look at Idina Menzel as you’ve never seen her before.
