Here's What Disney+ Is Adding In April 2021

Boba Fett in The Story of the Faithful Wookiee

Normally, we expect to see big things happening in the world of Star Wars in early May, as May the Fourth is the somewhat official Star Wars Day, but when it comes to Disney+, the big day is April 2, as a bunch of Star Wars content is set to drop, including several pieces of cult content. However, that's just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to what's coming to Disney+ in April.

When it comes to Star Wars we're seeing a bunch of library content that we didn't necessarily expect to ever see on Disney+. We'll see both made-for-TV films from the mid-'80s staring Star Wars: The Return of the Jedi's lovable Ewoks, Caravan of Courage and The Battle For Endor. We'll also get all the original Star Wars: Clone Wars animated shorts created by Genndy Tartakovsk, which predated Dave Filoni's animated series. Finally, and perhaps most surprising, we're getting The Story of the Faithful Wookiee, which is the animated segment from the ill-fated Star Wars Holiday Special.

Beyond that, we'll get a handful of lesser known Disney films, in the first part of the month, including 1959's Third Man on the Mountain, which is credited as being the inspiration for Disneyland's Matterhorn Bobsleds attraction, and The Island at the Top of the World, which inspired a land never build at Disneyland called Discovery Bay, which would in turn inspire Discoveryland at Disneyland Paris.

The latter part of April is perhaps a little lighter on content than the first couple weeks, but it does still have some stuff worth checking out. April 15 will see the beginning on a new Disney+ orihinal series, Big Shots, that will see John Stamos as the coach of a high school basketball team. Earth Day will see a special release of a new National Geographic documentary on whales. We'll also see The Falcon and the Winter Soldier end its brief run, followed by a behind-the-scenes documentary similar to the one we got for Wanda Vision.
