It’s Friday and time to take a look at what’s been added onto Disney+ in Australia and New Zealand today, which includes the return of Marvel’s “Loki” plus a new documentary from National Geographic and some classic Disney shorts.
Here’s the rundown:
Marvel’s Loki – Season 2 – Episode 1
Picking up immediately where Season 1 left off, during 2022’s D23 Expo star Tom Hiddleston teased that viewers will find Loki in a familiar, but strange, place. “Loki is back at the TVA, he’s had a very difficult confrontation with Sylvie, and Mobius and Hunter B-15 don’t know who he is.” Only time will tell what happens next.
Mickey and Friends Trick or Treats
Mickey and friends are off trick-or-treating, when they reach the spookiest house in town in search of the best treats. They meet Witch Hazel, who casts a Halloween spell on them.
Bobi Wine: The People’s President
Ugandan opposition leader, activist and musical star Bobi Wine uses his music to fight the regime led by Yoweri Museveni, who’s led the country for 35 years, and runs in the 2021 presidential election.
Aaron Carter: The Little Prince of Pop
Aaron Carter was a chart-topping child pop star who toured the world with hits; famous by nine and struggling by 20, the teen sensation fell amidst family turmoil, mental health struggles and addiction that ultimately took his life.
Atlanta musicians behind some of the biggest names in music embark on an uncertain journey into the spotlight with a new genre of music that fuses trap music with jazz.
CAMPING OUT (1934)
Mickey, Minnie, Clarabelle Cow and Horace Horsecollar are on a camping trip and enjoying the great outdoors until the arrival of a lone mosquito escalates into an all-out attack involving an army of stinging pests. The campers counterattack with some resourceful countermoves.
CHIPS AHOY (1956)
Hungry chipmunks Chip and Dale are down to their last acorn when they spot an acorn-laden tree belonging to Donald Duck across the lake. Pirating Donald’s ship from inside a bottle, the resourceful duo make their way to the tree, but not without interference from Donald. They take the wind out of Donald’s sail, and end up having the last laugh.
FIDDLING AROUND (1930)
Mickey Mouse shows a wide range of expressions and emotions (and even sports long hair) in this one-mouse virtuoso violin performance. He faces an unseen audience and a heckler as he earnestly plays several pieces including the Hungarian Dance and the William Tell Overture. Walt Disney directed this film, which is also known as “Just Mickey.”
INFERIOR DECORATOR (1948)
Donald Duck stirs up a hornet’s nest of trouble when he tangles with a bee named Spike, who is trying to pollinate Donald’s floral wallpaper. When Donald traps Spike with wallpaper glue, it leads to a sparring match between the two. The whole plan backfires when Spike manages to escape and enlist a hive-full of his bee pals to help get revenge.
OLD MacDONALD DUCK (1941)
Donald Duck gets into the rhythm of doing his chores around the farm, including feeding the animals and milking Clementine the cow, but finds there’s a fly in the ointment (or rather, the milk) when a persistent fly upsets his plans and drives him to distraction.
WHEN THE CAT’S AWAY (1929)
When Tom Cat is away, Mickey, Minnie and group of mischievous mice take over his home and entertain themselves with a variety of musical mayhem. Mickey and Minnie dance across the piano keys, use a wheel of Swiss cheese as a player piano roll, and find an inventive new way to play a phonograph record.
WYNKEN, BLYNKEN AND NOD (1938)
This elaborate Silly Symphony cartoon is a dream-like fantasy about three babes who journey to the moon in a wooden shoe-boat. Along the way, they go star-fishing, and catch a comet in their net to pull them through the night sky. When a storm breaks, they slide to earth on a moonbeam and back into a cradle as one little sleepyhead.
