Petrana Radulovic is an entertainment reporter specializing in animation, fandom culture, theme parks, Disney, and young adult fantasy franchises.

Disney Plus already launched with a ton of titles, but the platform hasn’t reached maximum capacity just yet. In addition to original content, like the upcoming episodes of Marvel’s Hero Project, there are a whole host of movies and shows wrapped up under other streaming services and licenses. Each month, a few new titles will trickle on to Disney Plus.

In January, The Proud Family makes its triumphant streaming debut. Early 2000s favorite Holes — starring none other than Shia LaBeouf — also lands on the platform. Animation buffs should watch out for the Salvador Dalí and Walt Disney collaborative short film Destino, which drops on January 10. There’s also the Mater shorts, 2019’s live-action Aladdin, and more Forky than we can handle.
