Disney has released an extensive list of new content set to hit Disney+ on Friday as part of their Disney+ Day presentation. Some of them are fairly new information, like Under the Helmet: The Legend of Boba Fett, and a similar Marvel special. Others have been ong-anticipated, like Home Sweet Home Alone and The World According to Jeff Goldblum. In international markets, the decidedly less kid-friendly Hulu series Dopesick even makes an appearance, although not in the U.S. But there are more than a dozen high profile releases coming to Disney+ that day, and that doesn't even count things like Fancy Nancy, which is going day-and-date with its new season.
"The direct-to-consumer business is the company's top priority," Disney chief Bob Chapek said back in August. "Among the unique advantages in promoting our service, our powerhouse brands, and the best array of direct-to-consumer touchpoints that we have across our businesses from the media networks to the theme parks to the consumer products. The synergy enables us to raise consumer awareness and engage with the screening services."
Earlier this morning, Disney+ released a new teaser video for the event, looking back on the successes of 2021 and presumably teeing up the 2022 content that will be discussed on Friday. Disney+ Day is expected to feature not just looks at in-development projects, but also some new announcements, as well. If you haven't signed up for Disney+ yet, you can try it out here.
You can see a breakdown of the full list below, along with the official synopses for the projects from Disney.

The World According to Jeff Goldblum
In The World According to Jeff Goldblum, Jeff takes us on an entertaining, insightful and playful ride. In each episode of this 12-part series, he pulls on the thread of a deceptively familiar object to unravel a world of astonishing connections, fascinating science and history. From sneakers, ice cream, coffee and cosmetics to everything in between, Jeff uncovers how even the simplest things have incredible, sometimes whimsical back stories. Through the prism of Jeff's curious and witty mind, nothing is as it seems. These 'modern marvels' are so commonplace, we take them for granted...but Jeff Goldblum doesn't.
