Everything New On Disney Plus In January 2020: Movies, TV Shows, And Original Programming

If Will Smith doesn't rap over the credits of his own movie, why bother?


New year, new streaming content to binge. Disney+ is ready to deliver everything single week in January. Sure, the first season of The Mandalorian has come a close, but are still new movies, TV shows, and original programming worth checking out. Last month, Disney+ revealed what will available at the beginning of January, and now, the list for the rest of this month is out. So we combined all the new release info for you, which you can check out below.

Kicking off the new year--which you can watch now--is the Disney classic Cool Runnings, which is loosely based on the story of the 1988 Jamaican bobsled team. It's the perfect feel-good comedy to start 2020.

The live-action remake of the classic animated movie Aladdin arrives on January 8. In his review of Aladdin, GameSpot's Chris E. Hayner said, "Aladdin is good. It's not perfect, but it's a big, extravagant musical that's filled with fun performances, bright colors, and some exciting moments. Will Smith's turn as Genie isn't better than what Robin Williams brought to the character, but it's different enough that it stands on its own merit. And, if you're into this sort of thing--and you should be--Smith has a new rap over the end credits that is themed to the movie."

There are some original programs coming to a close at the end of this month as well. The travel docuseries The World According to Jeff Goldblum wraps up on January 24 with an episode about jewelry, as the star of the series finds out what attracts collectors to this item. He'll probably say "bling" at least four times during the episode. Also on the 24th, Encore and Pick of the Litter have their finales as well.

Below, you will find everything arriving on Disney+ for January. If you're interested in more streaming news, check out what's coming to Netflix and Hulu this month.
