Week in and week out, Disney+ always manages to surprise us. The streaming service is once again coming with some big surprises in the third week of May.

While some say April showers bring May flowers, Disney+ is actually slowing things down in May. Despite the ending of Moon Knight and some original movies, things have been slow, but that’s not to say some of the releases haven’t been gems.

Regardless, that’s not to say May is a wash for the platform. Rather, May promises even bigger things coming within this week and next. Honestly, Disney+ does seem to get overshadowed by the other services, but the mixture of old, new, and original content really sets it apart.

Either way, these Disney+ releases should help bring some much-needed fun to your weekend.

New Disney+ shows and movies to stream this weekend

While things are looking a little light on Disney content this week, thankfully we’re getting an extremely anticipated release for kids and their parents alike but here’s everything released this week.

  • Alice’s Wonderland Bakery, Season 1 [5 episodes] (May 18)
  • I Cavalieri Di Castelcorvo, Season 1 (May 18)
  • The Wizard of Paws, Season 2 (May 18)
  • Secrets of the Zoo, Season 5 (May 18)
  • Broken Karaoke, Episode 6 (May 18)
  • Chip ‘n Dale: Rescue Rangers (May 20)
  • Shook (May 20)

As you can see, the list for this week is pretty short but the most exciting is easily Chip ‘n Dale: Rescue Rangers which seems like it’s going to be the perfect weekend watch. The movie honestly looks like it’s going to have some Who Framed Roger Rabbit vibes while still paying homage to the original series it’s based on. Either way, that is super high on my Disney+ watchlist.

With a huge release coming next week, it makes sense for Disney to only release a few smaller yet still exciting projects. Regardless, hopefully, you’re able to relax and watch some Disney+ this weekend.
