Thankfully, ComicBook.com has taken care of the hard work by compiling a list of everything added for Disney+ Day.
Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings is now available on the Disney streaming service for the first time.

A behind-the-scenes making of Shang-Chi is the newest addition to Marvel Studios Assembled. A Marvel Legends episode featuring Hawkeye, the next original Marvel series premiering November 24th on Disney+, is also available. There is also the Marvel Studios Disney+ Day 2021 special to stream, which takes a look back at previous shows while looking ahead to the future of the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
The Pixar Disney+ Day 2021 special previewed Cars on the Road, a spinoff series of the Car franchise. Win or Lose is Pixar's first-ever original long-form animated series debuting in 2023. It follows a coed middle school softball team as they prepare for the championship game. The special also has documentaries for Lightyear and Turning Red.
Dwayne Johnson and Emily Blunt's Jungle Cruise joins Shang-Chi by making its Disney+ debut today. There are already talks of a sequel, so this is a movie you'll want to make time to watch with the family. The Simpsons are throwing a Disney+ Day celebration in The Simpsons in Plusaversary. Also, the Home Alone franchise gets a refresh in Home Sweet Home Alone, as a new kid gets the honor of being left behind by his family during the holidays.
