Disney Plus launched in 2019 with most of Disney’s back catalog, but the platform still hasn’t reached maximum capacity just yet. In addition to original content, like the currently airing Andor series, there is a host of older movies and shows that trickle onto Disney Plus each month.
In this, the spookiest of months, MCU fans get treated to Werewolf by Night, a black-and-white homage to classic horror films that genuinely looks like the sort of rad experimental diversion Disney Plus was made for. YA series The Mysterious Benedict Society also returns for its second season, and the animated Star Wars shorts anthology Tales of the Jedi arrives. Those into short-lived superhero cartoons also have something to check out, as episodes from MTV’s strange-yet-fascinating Spider-Man: The New Animated Series finally arrive on the streamer.
