Trevor: The Musical
Disney+ also has something for the musical lovers too! The filmed version of the Off-Broadway stage production Trevor: The Musical will be hitting the streaming platform this summer, just in time for pride month. The musical is actually based on the 1995 Academy Award-winning film of a similar name, Trevor, which also inspired The Trevor Project, a nonprofit organization dedicated to providing mental health assistance for LGBTQ young people. The more you know!
Well, what about the musical, you ask? Right, well, the musical follows 13-year-old Trevor, who, after going through an embarrassing incident at school, must rise above and gather enough courage to march to the beat of his own drum. We’ll be rooting for Trevor through his journey, and we’re sure you’ll be too once you see the release of the musical!

The world of Descendants is getting bigger with this new spellbinding tale of a movie! The Pocketwatch (a working title at the moment) brings in new characters, Red, the daughter of the Queen of Hearts from Alice in Wonderland, and Chloe, the daughter of Cinderella and Prince Charming from, well, Cinderella! In this story, to prevent a forthcoming coup in Auradon during the celebration of the new royal baby, Red and Chloe must team up and go back in time so they can avert an event that’ll lead to big consequences! An interesting set-up considering Red is more rebellious while Chloe is more of a perfectionist, so they’re bound to butt heads sometime in the movie.
It’s nice to know that Auradon and possibly the Isle of the Lost will be revisited along with the introduction to the magical world of Wonderland. Plus, seven new songs will be added to the film, which means that’s seven more songs to sing along to, yay!
Released Date: TBA, so keep your eyes peeled!
