Disney+ New Releases: May 2021

One of the most ironclad scheduling rules in pop culture is that no May 4 should come and go without a new bit of Star Wars lore to entertain us. Thanks to Disney+, this May 4 should be particularly celebratory.

With its list of new releases for May 2021, Disney+ is bringing Star Wars: The Bad Batch into the fold. The animated series will continue a plotline begun in The Clone Wars and will follow Clone Force 99 a.k.a. “The Bad Batch” of genetically mutated clone troopers. Dave Filoni is on board as creator and showrunner so we know we’re gonna have a great time.

On the movie side of things, Disney is premiering another major title this month. The Emma Stone-starring Cruella premieres on May 28. Did anyone ask for a gritty Cruella de Vil origin story? Almost certainly not. Is it gonna be a fun watch? Who knows! But rest assured, there will be memes.

May also brings two other, more experimental, original series of note. Inside Pixar: Unpacked on May 21 will take viewers behind the scenes at the legendary animation studio. Then Launchpad on May 28 is an intriguing new initiative in which six filmmakers from underrepresented backgrounds create a short film.

In terms of library titles for Disney + this month, there aren’t many to speak of aside from D-grade superhero fare like Fantastic Four: Rise of the Silver Surfer and X-Men: The Last Stand. That’s quite alright though, as Star Wars: The Bad Batch should be able to hold viewers over until Loki arrives in June.
