It’s a good time to be a Disney+ subscriber.
Today is Disney+ Day, a day for Disney to… celebrate Disney+ I guess? Not the most well thought-out holiday, admittedly, but if anyone can afford to create a holiday out of literally nothing, it’s Disney. Strange circumstances aside, there is plenty to celebrate, as Disney has released a massive laundry list of teasers for shows and movies both animated and live-action coming to the Disney+ service over the course of 2022.
In the live-action department, we’ve got confirmation of a sequel to the cult-classic Halloween film Hocus Pocus with Bette Midler, Sarah Jessica Parker and Kathy Najimy all reprising their classic roles as the Sanderson Sisters. Gabrielle Union and Zach Braff will be starring in a remake of the comedy film Cheaper by the Dozen, the original of which was an adaptation of a book from the 1950s. Will Smith will be starring in Welcome to Earth, a documentary series wherein the star will be traveling to some of the most beautiful natural spots on Earth, tackling potentially dangerous voyages in the process.

On the animated front, Baymax, the squishy healthcare robot from Big Hero 6, will be getting his own series where he aids folks young and old with health concerns. The Proud Family is returning in the form of The Proud Family: Louder and Prouder, with most of the original cast returning to tackle aged up, modern situations. Finally, another Disney cartoon classic, Chip N’ Dale: Rescue Rangers, is getting the full-on movie treatment, with John Mulaney and Andy Samberg set to play the lead roles.
This isn’t everything that was announced, as we don’t even remotely have time for all of it, but suffice to say, if you’re a Disney+ subscriber (or moocher, no judgement), you’ll have no shortage of stuff to watch next year.
