Welcome back, honeybees, to another edition of Binge-Worthy Buzz! This is our weekly series where we give you a list of all the things you cannot miss in the realm of Movies and TV. This week, we chose to talk about all the new stuff coming from Disney in the near future. Hop on the magic carpet and let’s get into it!
If you love Disney and live anywhere in the US or Canada, you probably already know this one, but to anyone who doesn’t, we’ll tell you about it. June 21 was World Music Day, and as a way to celebrate, Disney+ livestreamed a special Harmonious Live! performance at Walt Disney World’s Epcot. In case you didn’t catch it, the recording is still available to watch on Disney+ as many times as you want.
Harmonious Live! was hosted by Idina Menzel and had Auli’i Cravalho as a special guest. The livestream gives us the opportunity to watch all the little details that go into Disney Park spectaculars, from the green screens to the lights and pyrotechnics. And that’s just the visual part, but the point of Harmonious Live! is to celebrate the power of music. And how do they do that? With a medley of Disney classics reinterpreted by 240 artists from all over the world with a live orchestra to top it off. We’re in love with this already!
Chip n’ Dale: Park Life
There’s something undeniably charming about the classic Chip n’ Dale shorts we watched as kids, so it was no surprise we fell in love with Chip n’ Dale: Park Life. Season one showed us it was possible to combine the classic slapstick comedy from traditional cartoons with the character-driven type of comedy we’re used to today.
The first season brought back our favorite tiny troublemakers but instead of living in the forest like they were used to, now they live in a park in a big city. We suggest you get to watching it as soon as possible before the second season rolls around and we see what else Chip, the worrier and Dale, the dreamer will get up to. And who else will be showing up in the show, of course.
Monsters at Work
You know a franchise is successful when it keeps coming back with new content for years and years. Monsters at Work is a series inspired by Monsters Inc., but instead of showing us the “before” like Monsters University, it shows us the “after,” as in “after the movie ends and monsters start using laughter instead of screams as fuel.”
The show follows Tylor Tuskmon as he tries to work his way up to the Laugh Floor at Monsters Inc. during the episodes. Season one is already available for streaming on Disney+ and season two is just around the corner, promising to bring back fan favorites and introduce some new monsters. Season one was about Tyler getting to the Laughter Floor, Season two will be about what he does after that dream comes true and we can’t wait to see how that goes.
What started as a spin-off of the show Jessie quickly became much more over the years. BUNK’D is currently on its sixth season and is the first-ever Disney Channel show to hit that mark. But we can definitely get why seeing as the campers at Camp Kikiwaka have always been captivating characters we all quickly fell in love with by the end of season one.
Now, BUNK’D is back with new episodes every week on Disney Channel at 7:30 p.m. EDT. The fourth episode of season six airs on July 1 and will follow Bill and Destiny’s search for treasure and Parker and Noah’s plans for a dance performance.
The Villains of Valley View
We’ve mentioned this show a while back, but we’re back to talking about it because it honestly deserves attention. The Villains of Valley View is what happens when a family of supervillains is forced to relocate to the suburbs and hide their identities.
It all starts when Havoc (or Amy) decides it’s a great idea to stand up to the League of Villains. They’re not exactly pleased and now everyone has to hide and pretend they’re just a regular family who moved to Texas. Now, each new episode brings us into the double lives of Amy and her family at 8:00 p.m. EDT every Friday on Disney Channel.
Ultra Violet & Black Scorpion
To end this list we’re going from villains to superheroes. Specifically, two superheroes: Ultra Violet and Black Scorpion. The crime-fighting duo consists of Violet Rodriguez and her uncle Cruz.
The story of the show begins when a magical luchador mask chooses Violet to become a new superhero, known as Ultra Violet, and through the episodes, we see the girl try to balance being a teenager and being a superhero. Every Friday, a new episode airs on Disney Channel at 8:30 p.m. EDT.
