Disney+: What’s New in February

Last week, Disney has announced the films, television series, and specials that are coming to Disney+ in the month of February.

In addition to the Disney+ exclusives, the streamer is the home for movies and series from Disney, Pixar, Marvel, Star Wars, National Geographic.  What follows below are original films, new episodes, and new library titles heading to Disney+ in January.  It goes without saying that library title availability varies by region and subject to change.  New episodes include the synopsis for each new episode so this is a warning if you want to avoid anything considered even a slight spoiler for WandaVision.  I’ve read the descriptions and to me, they avoid any spoilers altogether.

Despite announcing Enchanted sequel Disenchanted during The Walt Disney Company Investor Day, the original film is still not on Disney+.
