Another weekend is upon us, and that means Disney+ has added a bunch of new movies and shows to keep its streaming roster fresh. Every Friday, Disney+ adds new content in the form of classic properties that have previously been streaming elsewhere, and original projects that are making their debut for the first time. This weekend’s additions are a solid mix of both categories, offering something for just about every Disney+ subscriber.
Friday brought the debut of a new original film from Disney+, Secret Society of Second-Born Royals. This teen movie likely would’ve made its debut on Disney Channel had Disney+ not been created, so it follows in the footsteps of films like Zenon, High School Musical, and Halloweentown. Royals, however, leans more into fantasy and sci-fi elements than others.
When it comes to new additions of titles that already existed, Hidden Figures is probably the most notable. Based on a true story, the 2017 film follows three female African-American mathematicians at NASA during the early years of the US space program. The movie was a hit upon its release and was ultimately nominated for three Academy Awards, including Best Picture.
