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.

“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.”
