Disney Plus launched in 2019 with most of Disney’s back catalog, but the platform still hasn’t reached maximum capacity just yet. In addition to original content, like High School Musical: The Musical: The Series, there is a host of older movies and shows that trickles onto Disney Plus each month.

She-Hulk: Attorney at Law premieres this month, with episodes of High School Musical: The Musical: The Series continuing to air. Also, a host of Disney animated classics (and their live-action counterparts) get special singalong versions.
