Disney has added a new collection of shows from the Disney Channel and National Geographic today. These titles had originally been scheduled to arrive earlier this month, however Disney moved all of these titles back to half way through the month to spread them out.
There are some regional differences between countries on what is and isn’t available.
Here is the rundown of today’s new releases:
America’s National Parks (Season 1)
The audience will experience North America’s natural wonders with its iconic wildlife as you have never seen them before. Strong story telling let the audience discover the fascinating interactions in wild habitats they thought they were familiar with.
Continent 7: Antarctica (Season 1)
In an environment not conducive to human survival, it’s easy to understand why “Continent 7” is the first-ever global long-form documentary series filmed in Antarctica. Scientists and survival experts join forces on the ice, underneath it, and atop mountainous peaks — fighting brutal conditions along the way — to conduct life-changing research. These scientists and the community play a vital role in many urgent fields of science, from climate change to studies of glacier movement, active volcanoes and the search and tagging of marine megafauna that calls this ice home. The six-episode series also pays tribute to the mountaineers, mariners and helicopter pilots, among others, who help keep the scientists safe at work.
Dog: Impossible (Season 1)
Dog behaviour specialist Matt Beisner and his team help owners learn how to handle their aggressive and misunderstood animals, and rescue and rehabilitate dogs from local shelters that have been turned away by other facilities.
Marvel Super Hero Adventures (Shorts) (Season 2-3)
Spider-Man teams with other Marvel heroes, in this short-form series, to teach the benefits of friendship, co-operation and heroism.
Muppet Babies Show and Tell (Shorts) (Season 1)
Pull up a chair and join Miss Nanny as the Muppet Babies take her around the playroom and beyond for an amazing Show and Tell!
Randy Cunningham: 9th Grade Ninja (Season 1-2)
Randy Cunningham is a ninth-grader who is an unlikely hero with a superhuman ninja suit, the NinjaNomicon. Randy uses the suit and help from his best friend, Howard, to battle evil while trying to survive high school and guard his secret identity — all while trying to protect his school and the world from certain destruction. Seems like an average life for a high-school freshman, right?
The Lodge (Season 2)
After the death of her mother, teenager Skye returns with her father to North Star Lodge, the family-owned hotel where her mother was raised years earlier, to get a fresh start. She quickly makes friendships with the locals who live in and work at the country lodge. Skye must rely on her new friends for help when she finds out that her father plans on selling the lodge. Because it contains so many memories for her family, Skye becomes determined to change her dad’s mind and keep the hotel in the family.
Wild Russia (Season 1)
Wild Russia is a landmark High Definition series charting a journey across this vast land that stretches from Europe to the Pacific Ocean.
Covering 11 time zones, this huge country contains a wealth of unspoilt natural wildernesses – beyond the huge cities of Moscow and St. Petersburg, a primal world with rough mountain summits, wild rivers and an unmatched flora and fauna reveals itself.
Through unprecedented access we showcase the wild spectacle that is the Russian continent. Across six dramatic episodes we explore this diverse and even exotic country. Russia is a place of superlatives proving that size does matter. Few countries are home to such extraordinary mammals: the Amur Tiger is the world’s largest cat; the Polar Bear is the world’s largest land predator; massive brown bears scour the rivers in search of salmon. The Russian skies are home to the world’s largest owl and majestic sea eagles. In the freezing northern waters, walruses and Beluga whales hunt for fish. It also provides a refuge for some for some incredibly rare species – including the beautiful and elusive Amur Leopard.
