New On Disney Plus This Week: Movies, TV Shows, And Originals

Disney+ has all the original programming you need.


While Disney+'s premiere original series The Mandalorian came to an end in December, there is a lot of original content coming in 2020 to look forward to. Every Friday, Disney releases original programming to its service, and here's what's headed for the week of January 5-11.

You can now watch the live-action remake of the classic Disney movie Aladdin. Starring Mena Massoud, Naomi Scott, Marwan Kenzari, and Will Smith, the movie follows a street kid--more like adult if you ask me--who comes across a magic lamp and a genie that can bring him riches, wealth, and the hand of a beautiful princess. 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."

On Friday, Disney+ is dropping a bunch of content, including Season 3 of Marvel's Runways, a Hulu original series. High School Musical: The Musical: The Series, Encore, and One Day at Disney get new episode releases. And finally, there's a new episode of The World According to Jeff Goldblum, where the titular host dives into the world of cosmetics, where he'll surely be confused by every aspect of the main topic, like he has been on every previous episode of the series.

Below, you'll find everything coming to Disney+ this week, and for more streaming news, check out everything coming to Amazon, Hulu, and Shudder for the week of January 5 as well. We also have a rundown on what's new to Netflix.
