May on Disney+ brings several new movies, specials, a documentary, a fantasy competition show, and the return of a fan favorite Jedi.
This month sees the movie premieres of both “Sneakerella,” the contemporary update to “Cinderella,” and “Chip ‘n Dale: Rescue Rangers,” which updates the two sleuths 30 years later.
Director Ron Howard focuses his lens on chef José Andrés for his latest documentary, “We Feed People,” while on the opposite side of the reality spectrum, mix “The Lord of the Rings” with “The Amazing Race,” and you have the fantasy competition show, “The Quest.”
Meanwhile, fans who like to look behind the scenes of their shows will want to tune in for “Disney Gallery: The Book of Boba Fett” and “Marvel Studios: Assembled – The Making of Moon Knight.”
And finally, a legendary Jedi returns to the screen in the limited series, “Obi-Wan Kenobi.”
