    Oops, somebody screwed up, as Cheaper By The Dozen and My Dog The Thief have not shown up yet on the service.

    Honestly, I think it would be cool for them to hire the same animators who did Detective Pikachu. The subtleties of the facial animation was incredible with Pikachu. I would love to see that same style for Stitch.

    Also, random question-does anyone know if "Sky High" or "Swiss Family Robison (1998)" will be getting to Disney+? I was reviewing the list and was surprised at some of the movies not there.

    I watched another episode of Gargoyles earlier this week, Enter MacBeth. It was definitely an interesting introduction to the character.
    I'm a little surprised Splash is on Disney+, I would think the nudity would be enough to get it on Hulu.

    Cheaper by the Dozen and My Dog, the Thief finally showed up on D+ late Friday afternoon.

    All is well. Plus really, the more Steve Martin the better.

    Are there any Disney affiliated sites where you might be able to get official answers about why stuff is or isn't on Disney+?
    I'm getting really annoyed that there is still no sign of the Aladdin animated series, I swear it's only animated Disney series not on there at this point.

    Disney started some new twitter accounts for the UK, Spanish, French, and Italian versions of Disney+ today, and one of their tweets has people worried:

    https://twitter.com/DisneyPlusUK/status/1229354731916709888

    It is unclear if Mandalorian episodes will be available all at once or if they'll show up one episode per week in the new launch territories.

    That sounds to me like it's probably going to be weekly.
    Just watched Captain Marvel yesterday, love that movie.

    so we have:
    -Fairy Tale Weddings starting last week
    -Clone Wars starting this week
    -Shop Class starting next week
    -Stargirl debuts on March 13
    -Be Our Chef starts on March 27

    Hopefully there will be more original debuts in March than just Stargirl and Be Our Chef.

    New additions this week.
    I don't remember seeing Lost Cities or Star Wars The Legacy Revealed on the earlier schedules from D+. They seem to be surprises.

    So it looks like Star Wars The Legacy Revealed never showed up. Perhaps it was just a misprint, since it was never on the original lists for February.


    Speaking of, Disney has sent out the schedule for March (as always, subject to change). Not a gigantic ton of new originals for March, but I have 2 thoughts on that. First, I think we're going to get a whole ton of nature stuff coming up in April. Disney has been putting out lots of nature stuff in April the past few years, and I'm sure we'll see some more heading up to this year's Earth Day. Second, perhaps Disney+ is waiting for those big European countries to come on board at the end of the month, and is planning to debut a lot more original material once all those new users join. It would make sense. To impress all the new subscribers with a larger volume of D+ original shows.

    Anyways, here's the Disney+ schedule through the end of March, as it currently stands (there'll likely be a minor change or three over the next few weeks):

    -Disney+ finally added a "New To Disney+" row. Should be quicker and easier to find new stuff now.

    -Love Victor is moving from Disney+ and will now debut on Hulu instead.

    -Disney+ is making a brand new Proud Family animated series.

    -Monsters At Work has hit some construction delays. It now won't be ready to debut until 2021.

    -Brand new show called Disney Insider debuting on March 20.

    First episode will feature segments on Katy Perry, Stargirl, and Onward. If they keep featuring multiple segments like that every week, we ought to get cool behind-the-scenes stuff from Mandalorian, Falcon & Winter Soldier, or Black Widow soon enough. Or at some point. Eventually.


    And finally, last but not least, here's the new stuff that showed up on Disney+ (US version) this week:

    The rumored but not confirmed 101 Dalmatian Street made its appearance. Not sure why Disney didn't want to promote that. Plus a second surprise: Viking Warrior Women. (It's a NatGeo documentary in case you're wondering. I'll give you one guess what it's about.)

    Here's the promo video for March that Disney released:



    -Mostly stuff we already knew about, but a few small surprises like The Sandlot 2, The Sandlot: Heading Home and Star Wars Galaxy's Edge Adventure Awaits.

    -A few titles that we expected aren't listed too: Three on the Run and Zorro-Second Series. We'll have to wait and see if those two show up or not.

    -No surprise that they added another Pixar in Real Life on the first Friday of the month. We'll see how long they keep that show short and its monthly schedule going.
