Friday really is the GOOD day, innit? First, we woke up to the news that Taylor Swift is dropping a brand new album TODAY, and now Disney has unleashed an avalanche of news, updates and trailers for their future releases.

There’s so much information, I don’t know what to do with it!!!

Try and keep up as we dive into all the goss that’s been rolled out today (and sign up to Disney+ here).


A prequel to the live-action The Lion King is in the werks via Moonlight director Barry Jenkins and featuring music by Hans Zimmer and Pharrell.


That much-talked about live-action Little Mermaid is officially happening, featuring queen Halle Bailey as Ariel, Awkwafina and Melissa McCarthy, along with tunes by Lin Manuel (no biggie!).


There’s also a live-action Pinocchio coming to Disney+, starring ma boi Tom Hanks.

Peep the trailer below:

Sister Act 3

FUCK YES!!!!! The long-rumoured third iteration of the iconic ’90s story Sister Act is officially a-go, feat. goddess Whoopi Goldberg as the lead star and producer.

It’s set to premiere exclusively on Disney+.

Peter Pan & Wendy

Peter Pan & Wendy will be flying to Disney+, feat. Yara Shahidi as Tinker Bell and Jude Law as Captain Hook.

Hocus Pocus 2

Your Halloween spells worked, witches, ‘cos Hocus Pocus 2 is officially in the werks and will fly via broomstick onto Disney+.

A new Zac Efron flick

We’ve been dealt the devastating blow that honorary Aussie Zac Efron will be leaving us soon to film a modern take on the hilarious ’80s comedy Three Men and a Baby, as previously announced.

It’s set to premiere on Disney+ in 2022 (which means we have plenty more Zefron Down Under time to look forward to).

Kardashians (???)

The Kardashians have inked some kind of special deal because OF COURSE they have.

According to a tweet, the Kardashian Jenners will “create new global content under a multi-year deal, to stream exclusively on Hulu in the U.S. and in multiple territories on Star internationally”.

Not sure what that means for us, but I’m bloody keen to find out!

Mighty Ducks

Millennials, rejoice! The Mighty Ducks: Game Changers is set to continue the legacy of hockey’s finest. Picking up where the movies ended, the series sees Emilio Estevez return as Gordon Bombay and Gilmore Girl Lauren Graham is joining the crew.

Black Panther 2

What’s bound to be an absolute tear-jerker, Black Panther 2, will hit cinemas in July 22.

To honour the late Chadwick Boseman’s legacy, his character will not be recast, and instead the film will explore the world of Wakanda.


Cop your first look at the Loki series, coming to Disney+ on May 2021, below:

Groot series

Your fave tree Groot is finally receiving the recognition he deserves via a new spesh, I Am Groot.

Thor: Love and Thunder

One of the greatest players in the DC universe, Christian Bale, heads to Marvel as he’s been cast in Thor: Love and Thunder as the film’s villain.

This is just a few of many, many announcements! I recommend you jump onto Twitter ASAP to peep more tea as it’s spilled.
