Disney Plus launched last year with most of Disney’s back catalog, 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’s a whole host of movies and shows wrapped up under other streaming services and licenses. Each month, a few new titles will trickle onto Disney Plus.

Mulan makes a Disney Premier Access debut, challenging the future of theaters and streaming everywhere. Also coming to the platform is that movie with Ewan McGregor as Christopher Robin, where all the stuffed toys come to life and remind him of happiness. Bend it Like Beckham, Ever After, and Never Been Kissed also debut.

Masquerading as a man, Hua Jun, she is tested every step of the way and must harness her inner-strength and embrace her true potential. It is an epic journey that will transform her into an honored warrior and earn her the respect of a grateful nation…and a proud father.
