Disney Plus (opens in new tab) impressed us all with The Mandalorian, but it still holds a wealth of original programming to look forward to. The House of Mouse is doling out shows based on characters from everything from Star Wars to Marvel and even National Geographic.
So, whether you're charmed by Baby Yoda is or you'd like to listen to Jeff Goldblum read the phone book, Disney Plus offers something that fits your taste. Also, looking for the Disney Plus app? We've got that covered.
While bounty hunter Boba Fett is the most iconic Mandalorian, this show won't focus on his character or backstory (the prequel trilogy did that to death already). Taking place between the fall of the Empire and the appearance of the First Order, writer/director/actor Jon Favreau's The Mandalorian series will be led by Pedro Pascal of Game of Thrones and Narcos. The show runs 8 episodes, and delivers a "gritty and immersive world of bounty hunters, scum and villainy."
Check out our The Mandalorian review (opens in new tab), which is light on spoilers but still gives you enough of a feel of what's good about the show.

Forky Asks a Question
The newest member of the Toy Story toybox will host a series of shorts.
The World According to Jeff Goldblum
If the title alone doesn't sell you, I don't know what to say. This National Geographic (one of the many brands under the Disney umbrella) series will give the beloved actor the opportunity to explain life on Earth as only he can.

Marvel's Hero Project
We know that not all heroes wear capes, and Hero Project will demonstrate this truth by documenting "young heroes" who are making positive changes in their communities.
Kristen Bell will reunite high school classmates, who performed alongside each other in on-stage musicals, and have them recreate their performances.

Marvel's Phase 4 slate of films and TV shows is coming to Disney Plus! Here's what we know:
The Falcon and The Winter Soldier (opens in new tab)
Coming Q3 2020 (July - September)
Since Sebastian Stan and Anthony Mackie's characters came back in Endgame, they're free to show us the future of Cap's shield. Daniel Brühl is back as Zero.
Elizabeth Olsen and Paul Bettany will reprise their Avenger roles of Wanda Maximoff (The Scarlet Witch) and Vision. Expect the show to be far quirkier than your average MCU project, with a half-sitcom, half-epic structure that looks to offer retro and modern moments.
Coming Q2 2021 (April - June)
Thor's brother might have been killed by Thanos in Avengers: Infinity War, but they found a way to bring him back — thanks to Avengers: Endgame. Tom Hiddleston is returning to star.
Coming Q3 2021 (July - September)
Formally announced at SDCC 2019, Hawkeye the series will star Jeremy Renner, in the role of Clint Barton. The Kate Bishop character, who Hawkeye trained to be his replacement, Kate Bishop, will be in the series.
Marvel's bringing its iconic alternate reality comic book — where each issue takes a major moment in its history and flips the script — to life on Disney+. The first episode of this animated series will show what will happen if Peggy Carter, not Steve Rogers, took the super serum that turned Rogers into Captain America.
Kamala Khan became the first muslim character to lead a Marvel comic book in 2013, and now she's going to be the first to lead a Disney+ show. The Hollywood Reporter announced the news on Aug. 23, prior to a Disney+ panel at the 2019 D23 Expo, where we expect to learn more.
