It’s Friday and time to take a look at what’s new on Disney+ today, which includes a brand new Pixar film and some surprise ESPN additions.

Here’s the rundown:


Turning Red

Disney and Pixar’s “Turning Red” introduces Mei Lee (voice of Rosalie Chiang), a confident, dorky 13-year-old torn between staying her mother’s dutiful daughter and the chaos of adolescence. Her protective, if not slightly overbearing mother, Ming (voice of Sandra Oh), is never far from her daughter—an unfortunate reality for the teenager. And as if changes to her interests, relationships and body weren’t enough, whenever she gets too excited (which is practically ALWAYS), she “poofs” into a giant red panda!


Embrace the Panda: Making Turning Red

Embrace the Panda: Making Turning Red is a feature documentary about the all-women team at the helm of Pixar’s original feature, Turning Red. With behind-the-scenes access to Director Domee Shi and her core leadership crew, this story shines a light on the powerful professional and personal journeys that brought this incredibly comical, utterly relatable, and deeply heartfelt story to the screen.


The Dominican Dream

“The Dominican Dream” is a portrait of the Dominican immigrants of New York in the ’80s and ’90s, seen through a loving family whose youngest son, Felipe Lopez, became the top ranked high school basketball player in the nation and was hailed as “The Dominican Michael Jordan’


Phi Slama Jama

They were the most popular fraternity on the campus of college basketball in the early 1980s. Led by a Nigerian soccer player named Hakeem Olajuwon and a lightly recruited hometown kid named Clyde Drexler, the University of Houston Cougars not only electrified the NCAA Final Four with three straight appearances (1982-84), but they also helped transform the game itself.


Survive And Advance

In 1983, the NC State Wolfpack, coached by Jim Valvano, stayed alive in the postseason by winning nine do-or-die games in a row — seven of which they were losing in the final minute — beating the likes of Michael Jordan and three-time National Player of the Year Ralph Sampson.


There’s No Place Like Home

On December 10, 2010, Sotheby’s auctioned off what could be considered the most important historical document in sports history — James Naismith’s original rules of basketball.


I Hate Christian Laettner

He made perhaps the most dramatic shot in the history of the NCAA basketball tournament. He’s the only player to start in four consecutive Final Fours, and was instrumental in Duke winning two national championships. He had looks, smarts and game. So why has Christian Laettner been disliked so intensely by so many for so long?



Guru Of Go

Paul Westhead wanted to perfect his shoot-first offense at Loyola Marymount. Players Hank Gathers and Bo Kimble gave him the chance.
