It’s Wednesday and time to take a look at what’s new on Disney+ in the United Kingdom and Ireland today, which includes a brand new Pixar film, a new National Geographic documentary starring British explorer Bertie Gregory and the return of “Welcome To Wrexham” plus much more.

Here’s the rundown:


Elemental

In a city where fire, water, land, and air residents live together, a fiery young woman and a go-with-the-flow guy discover something elemental: how much they actually have in common.


Good Chemistry: The Story Of Elemental

Pixar director Peter Sohn takes viewers on a humorous personal journey through the inspiration behind Disney and Pixar’s feature film “Elemental.” “Good Chemistry: The Story of Elemental” traces his parents’ voyage from Korea to New York, explores his dad’s former grocery shop in the heart of the Bronx, and delves into his choice of a career in animation, rather than the family business. The documentary is a delightful look at the unexpected influences that led to the making of the comedy-adventure “Elemental.” “Good Chemistry” is directed by Tony Kaplan and produced by Sureena Mann.



Carl’s Date: Dug Days

Written and directed by Academy Award® nominee and Emmy® Award winner Bob Peterson and produced by Kim Collins, “Carl’s Date” finds Carl reluctantly agreeing to go on a date with a lady friend—but admittedly with no idea how dating works these days. Ever the helpful friend, Dug steps in to calm Carl’s pre-date jitters and offer some tried-and-true tips for making friends—if you’re a dog. The new short, which opened in front of “Elemental” in theaters on June 16, joins an existing collection of shorts, “Dug Days,” that follow the humorous misadventures of the lovable pup with the high-tech collar.


The Other Black Girl

Nella, an editorial assistant, is tired of being the only Black girl at her company, so she’s excited when Hazel is hired. But as Hazel’s star begins to rise, Nella spirals and discovers something sinister is going on at the company.


Welcome To Wrexham – Season 2 – Premiere

Rob McElhenney (“It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia”) and Ryan Reynolds (“Deadpool”) navigate running the 3rd oldest professional football club in the world. “Welcome to Wrexham” is a docuseries tracking the dreams and worries of Wrexham, a working-class town in North Wales, UK, as two Hollywood stars guide the future of the town’s historic football club.

In 2020, Rob and Ryan teamed up to purchase the 5th tier Red Dragons in the hopes of turning the club into an underdog story the whole world could root for. The world took notice and change is afoot. After a painful elimination in the playoffs, season two continues to track the club as they fight for promotion out of the National League and return to the English Football League. Dedicated staff and supporters hold on to the dream of returning the team and town to glory while bracing for the new-found challenges that fame has brought to their small community.


From Hollywood to Wales, from the pitch to the locker room, the front office to the pub, “Welcome to Wrexham” follows Rob and Ryan’s stewardship and the inextricably connected fates of a team and a town in the midst of history in the making.


Star Wars: Ahsoka – Episode 5

Set after the fall of the Empire, “Star Wars: Ahsoka” follows the former Jedi Knight Ahsoka Tano as she investigates an emerging threat to a vulnerable galaxy.


PHOENIX: EDEN 17 (S1)

Follows a woman named Romi and her partner as they depart from the devastated Earth and head for a new life on the planet Eden17. However, life has already been made extinct on the new world, so Romi finds herself eking out an even harsher life there.


Han River Police: Season 1

“Han River Police” will see Kwon Sang-woo play the role of Han Dujin, the hot-tempered sergeant of the Han River Police Force who holds back for nobody, while Kim will be playing the role of Lee Chunseok, a laid-back lieutenant with the exact opposite personality. Stuck together on patrol of Seoul’s Han River, the two officers are faced with emergency situations ranging from terrorism to everyday accidents and other incidents requiring emergency assistance — a premise that suggests all of the action, humour and offbeat crime-solving of the classic buddy cop genre.


Animals Up Close With Bertie Gregory

Bertie Gregory is back, and this time, the adventures are even more epic! Bertie takes us to the most spectacular corners of our planet — from Antarctica to Africa and South America to Asia – tracking down extraordinary animals to capture their daily lives like never before. Armed with drones, state-of-the-art cameras, and underwater tech, he and his team brave subzero seas, climb snow-capped mountains, and sleep suspended 120 feet in the air to reveal the challenges these animals endure, their fierce rivalries, and the threats they face on our changing planet. “Animals Up Close With Bertie Gregory” shows all the behind-the-scenes moments he and his team face while adapting to unpredictable wildlife in remote environments where filming rarely goes as planned. There is no script for this unique series, but through it all, Bertie brings the audience with him every step of the way.


Butter Man: The Slickest Mexcian Thief

In Mexico, 1982, Emiliano Escamilla, a notorious scam artist and impersonator, plans to avenge his mother, who was wrongfully imprisoned for the crimes of his father, “El Mantequilla,” the most famous and pursued swindler of the 1950s. Elena Robles, the first female detective in her division, and Pablo Garduño, a young and ambitious reporter, set out to unravel his scams and find out who is the new “Mantequilla” and how to stop him. However, Emiliano, Elena, and Pablo will learn that things are not always what they seem, and each will learn that the world they are operating in is as capable of corrupting them as it is of destroying them. Mixing dark comedy, action, and drama, “Butter Man: The Slickest Mexican Thief” is a classic story of scams and impossible plans, where nothing is as it seems.


Marvel Studios’ Assembled: The Making of the Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3

Join visionary director James Gunn and superstars such as Chris Pratt and Zoe Saldaña as they recount how “Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3” was conceived, shaped, and delivered to the world. And stand alongside the cast and crew in the emotional final moments of the shoot as they bid farewell to each other, and close this chapter in the saga of Peter Quill and his loveable band of misfit-warriors.


Moving – New Episodes

In this supernatural action series, children who live in hiding with superpowers, along with their parents who live with painful secrets of the past, face enormous dangers together.


Miraculous: Tales of Ladybug & Cat Noir – New Episode

Lila uses an incident in class to calls for new elections to replace Marinette as class representative.
