What to Watch on Disney Plus June 2024

The Disney+ library is a deep one. We’ve picked a few of our favorite TV shows and movies to get you started.

New on Disney+ in June 2024

  • The Acolyte (New series, June 4)
  • Big City Greens the Movie: Spacecation (Movie premiere, June 4)
  • Clotilda: The Return Home (Documentary premiere, June 18)
  • Zombies: The Re-Animated Series (New series, June 28)

Disney+ has nearly 700 TV shows and movies in its Scrooge McDuck vault—where even to begin?

From Disney classics to Pixar, and from Marvel to Star Wars, Disney+’s library features more mega-hits and beloved franchises than all other streaming services combined. And its new, original content is pretty good too, when it sticks around for longer than a few months.

Doctor Who | Sci-fi, family

Beginning with the David Tennant/Catherine Tate specials from 2023, all new Doctor Who episodes will stream on Disney+ at the same time that they air in the U.S. This will continue into 15th Doctor Ncuti Gatwa’s run, which officially kicks off on May 11, 2024.

If you’re unfamiliar, Doctor Who is a long-running British series about a time-travelling alien who can regenerate their body when it comes close to death. Unfortunately, you can’t catch up on Disney+; everything prior to 2023 is still streaming on Tubi and Max.

Ms. Marvel (Disney+)

Ms. Marvel | Action, comedy

This Disney+ series is different from its previous Marvel originals: it’s young, fun, color-splashed, culturally diverse, and veers even closer to YA territory than recent Spider-Man movies. Sixteen-year-old Muslim girl Kamala (Iman Vellani) is the biggest Captain Marvel fan in New Jersey, if not the world—so what happens when she’s suddenly gifted with superpowers similar to those of her hero? You get Ms. Marvel, a different MCU saga than you’ve ever seen before.

The Beatles Get Back (Disney+)

The Beatles: Get Back | Documentary, music

In 1969, Michael Lindsay-Hogg shot over 60 hours of footage of the Beatles’ final recording sessions, which became the albums Abbey Road and Let It Be. His resulting 1970 film Let It Be was only 80 minutes long (including the Beatles’ famed London rooftop concert); director Peter Jackson (The Lord of the Rings) has edited the rest of the material into a six-hour rock-doc epic in three parts (Jackson likes his trilogies). Get Back is a must for Beatlemaniacs.

Protip: Looking for titles like Just BeyondWillow, The Mysterious Benedict Society, and Marvel’s Runaways? Unfortunately, Disney+ removed dozens of original series from its platform in May 2023. If a new original series looks interesting to you, your best bet is to watch it fast before the next Disney purge.

Best movies on Disney Plus

Thor Ragnarok (Disney+)

Thor: Ragnarok (2017)

Thor: Ragnarok took the semi-serious MCU template and blew it up into super-sized comedy, thanks to the aggressive silliness of director Taika Waititi.

Ragnarok finds Thor (Chris Hemsworth) showing off his comedic chops while being held prisoner on a planet ruled by Grandmaster (Jeff Goldblum) with Hulk/Bruce Banner (Mark Ruffalo) and Loki (Tom Hiddleston). If you watch only one Marvel movie ever, make it Thor: Ragnarok.

The Incredibles, a family of superheroes in red costumes with a yellow letter "i" on the chest.

The Incredibles (2004)

Like Toy Story and Monsters Inc., The Incredibles was an overnight hit with audiences and critics upon release, introducing dazzling superhero action into the Pixar lexicon, as well as more adult themes and the studio’s first PG rating.

It’s also been called “the perfect Fantastic Four movie that Marvel can’t seem to make” by comic-book purists. Besides relatable family dynamics, The Incredibles also features one of the best Disney villains ever, Syndrome (voiced by Jason Lee).

A blue-skinned boy rests on the back of an alien creature in the ocean.

Avatar: The Way of Water (2022)

Experience the cinematic event 13 years in the making the way it absolutely was not meant to be experienced: on a tiny phone screen, occasionally buffering thanks to a subpar internet connection.

Okay, we kid; Avatar: The Way of Water is still pretty cool even if you’re not watching it in the highest-definition IMAX theater. And its predecessor, 2009’s Avatar, is streaming on Disney+ as well if you need to refresh your memory on Jake Sully and his family of tall, blue cat aliens.
