The new content includes classic Disney movies and television shows, but it also includes brand new originals only seen on Disney Plus. Here’s what’s new on Disney Plus this month.

New Titles Added to the Streaming Library May 2020

I am personally loving all the brand new original content coming to Disney+ each month. May is my favorite month so far because we are getting amazing new Star Wars content in the form of a behind-the-scenes series on The Mandalorain. Please add it to your watch list if you haven’t already!

The Mandalorain behind the scene show is coming to Disney Plus this month!
