West Side Story

West Side Story is still running in various Dutch cinemas, but Disney+ members can also admire this film on their own TV screen from 2 March. It is a long sit, because the well-known director Steven Spielberg reserved more than 2.5 hours to capture the story on screen.

West Side Story is set in 1957, where two rival youth gangs make each other’s life miserable. Tony has his roots with the Jets, while Maria is the sister of the leader of the Sharks. The two start an affair in the utmost secrecy with all the risks that this entails. Will love win?

Turning Red

The New Pixar Animated Movie Turning Red skips theaters and premieres March 11 on Disney+. The story is about the young girl Mei Lee. When the 13-year-old teenager experiences too much stress, she transforms into a giant red panda within moments.

She has no control over this, so she never knows exactly when the transformation will take place. This results in all kinds of uncomfortable situations at school and at home within the family. To make matters worse, Mei Lee’s meddling mother is never far away, making it hard for the rebellious teen.

The Ice Age Adventures of Buck Wild

This new addition to the successful Ice Age franchise is once again set in prehistoric times. The lead role is reserved for Buck Wild. This one-eyed weasel teams up with fun possums Crash and Eddie to battle a variety of terrifying dinosaurs.

Once the possums are trapped in an underground cave, Buck Wild strangely frees them. That is the beginning of a close friendship, after which they take a long journey together to the ‘Lost World’. The well-known mammoth, sloth and saber-toothed tiger are of course also present. The Ice Age Adventures of Buck Wild will be available on Disney+ from March 25.

Nightmare Alley

Frustrated Stanton Carlisle has longed for success for years, but unfortunately it just doesn’t go smoothly. One day he sets his parental home on fire and later comes into contact with the clairvoyant couple Zeena and Pete during a traveling fairground. That changes his life forever.

With all the ‘insider knowledge’ gained, Stanton and his partner in crime Molly set out to defraud various businessmen in New York. The main target is an unpredictable trader, with the main character enlisting the help of a psychiatrist friend. Nightmare Alley is set in the 1940s and is based on a 1946 novel of the same name. The film can be seen from 16 March.

Cheaper by the Dozen

Cheaper by the Dozen is a new film adaptation of the 1950 original and the 2003 remake. The comedy is about a blended family with a total of ten children. See, among other things, what practical issues the colorful company encounters and what prejudices the family has to deal with. Together, the Bakers make the most of it. The film is full of funny scenes that rather magnify the busy family life. This Disney+ original will be available on the streaming service from March 18.

Moon Knight

From March 30, a fresh episode of a new superhero series will be released weekly on Disney+ from the well-known film studio Marvel. Moon Knight tells the story about Steven. This friendly gift shop worker occasionally experiences nighttime flashbacks to another life. Eventually, Steven discovers that he shares his body with the mysterious mercenary Marc Spector.

The enemies pile up as Steven and Marc learn more and more about their complex identities. They eventually end up in a war between the mighty gods of Egypt. Surprisingly enough, Moon Knight only has one season.
