Hello hello, honeybees, how are ya? We are gathered here today for another edition of Binge-Worthy Buzz, our weekly series where we give you a list of recommendations of what to watch next. We think you know the drill by now, so let’s get to it!
The Low Tone Club
Opening our list this week is The Low Tones Club, Disney+‘s latest Latin American show. Starting off strong, Carlos Vives plays the main character, Amaranto Molina, a new teacher at a music school that has… peculiar methods to say the least. Basically, the school only encourages students to do well by commercial standards (read: individuality and “doing what you love” aren’t a thing here.) This is the scenario Molina walks into, but we have a feeling some changes are coming.
At the school, based on the “commercial success” standards, the principal chooses five students to be part of the school’s band, those are The High Tones. On the other hand, there are The Low Tones, students who do not meet the school’s standards. Guess which group Mr. Molina is put in charge of (spoiler: it’s The Low Tones.) But instead of being bummed about it, Molina instead uses this as an opportunity to take his students on an inspiring music journey. On the other hand, the students start learning about their teacher’s past. Gosh, can November 30 please get here now?
Zen – Grogu and Dust Bunnies
First of all, Grogu is back!! Our favorite character from The Mandalorian is here for Zen – Grogu and Dust Bunnies, a short produced by Disney along with Studio Ghibli. Grogu looks adorable as ever in the hand-drawn animation directed by Katsuya Kondo.
The short was released on Disney+ back on November 12 as a celebration of the streaming service’s third anniversary (has it really been that long?) and also the release of The Mandalorian‘s first season. By the way, along with the short, we strongly recommend you watch The Mandalorian if you haven’t already because it’s definitely one of our favorite Star Wars shows to date.
Continuing on with the Star Wars shows we love, we have to talk about Andor. The show is set five years before the events of Rogue One, with Diego Luna returning as Cassian Andor while he’s still at the beginning of his journey to becoming the rebel hero we fell in love with.
Five years before Rogue One means the Rebellion wasn’t as big as it appears in other Star Wars media and Cassian is still a bit reluctant, but determined to make a difference. The first ten episodes are already available on Disney+, with the season finale coming on November 23. Also worth noting is the fact that the first two episodes of Andor will be shown on ABC on November 23, on FX on November 24, on Freeform on November 25, and Hulu will have it available from November 23 until December 7.
The popular show Mythic Quest is back for a third season! The show follows a group of video game developers who are constantly tasked with creating amazing worlds, heroes, and battles for the games. But, as they say, the hardest battles aren’t fought in the game, they’re fought in the office. And we think we can all agree real life is much harder than any video game ever.
The awesome story of the video game-developing team is about to get a new chapter, this time with time split between Ian and Poppy’s new company named GrimPop Studios and Mythic Quest, where David is now the boss. Everybody else is also back and better than ever. We can’t wait to watch it all on Apple TV+.
Elton John Live: Farewell From Dodger Stadium
This November 20 at precisely 11 pm EST Disney+ will livestream Elton John Live: Farewell From Dodger Stadium. A.k.a. Sir Elton John’s final performance in North America. For three hours, we’ll get to see one of the greatest voices of recent history rock our worlds alongside some other very relevant artists, such as Dua Lipa, Kiki Dee, and Brandi Carlile. We haven’t seen this many stars on a single stage in a while.
And even before the main event starts, there will be a Countdown to Elton Live, with the singer’s friends from the music industry wishing him well mixed with interviews with the man himself and with David Furnish. As sad as it is to know we won’t be seeing Elton John on North American stages any longer, we also can’t wait to see what his last three hours on one will be like. Thank you, Disney+ for this!
At last, the long-awaited Wednesday Addams show is about to drop on Netflix, on November 23. All eight episodes will be available at once and will show us Wednesday’s life as a high school student. For the first time, the older Addams sibling will be the sole main character (but her family will still show up, yay!)
And different from the 90s movies, the show won’t take place mostly inside the Addams family home. Instead, we’ll be seeing Wednesday at her school, Nevermore Academy. There, she’s learning to master her psychic abilities, trying to stop a strange force that’s going on a killing spree, and solving a 25-year-old mystery that has seriously affected her family. And, because she’s also a teenager, she also has to deal with new people and new relationships.
