It’s Friday and that means it’s time for some new movies and shows to be added to Disney+ in the US and Canada, with today’s new additions including some new Disney+ Originals such as “The Big Fib”, “Zenimation” and “Out”.
Here is the full rundown:
The Big Fib (Global)
(All 15 Episodes Available)
Ever thought you could spot a fib better than a kid? Find out on The Big Fib. A new Disney+game show, hosted by Yvette Nicole Brown and featuring Rhys Darby as her robot sidekick, C.L.I.V.E. In each episode of this comedy game show, a kid starts by playing a warm up round where a silly liar and an authentic expert share fabulous fibs and fun facts.
Starring up and coming comedic talent, this round is played for laughs as well as always having a nugget of real information about the topic be it ice cream, tree climbing or toy design. Next our kid contestant plays the main round where they question an expert who’s paired with a really good liar on the same topic. It’s up to our kid to find the fibber. There are visual clues, fascinating props, a hot seat round of rapid fire questions and various topics, including jellyfish, venom and killer plants.
The show culminates with the expert and liar standing under the Fib Foam machine to await their fate. If our kid chooses correctly, the liar gets foamed. The Big Fib is full of outrageous truths that sound like lies and audacious lies that sound like the truth.
