Coming to Disney+ in April '21: Ewoks movies, Clone Wars, Rio, Night at the Museum

Coming to Disney Plus in April are the two live-action Star Wars Ewoks movies, Caravan of Courage and Ewoks: Battle for Endor, both of which have been long-sought-after for Star Wars completionists on the Facebook groups I frequent.

Also coming are volumes one and two of the original short-form “Star Wars: Clone Wars” series, which consisted of two- to three-minute episodes, produced in 2003 before the creation of Ahsoka Tano for the more well-known “The Clone Wars” series. “Star Wars: Ewoks”, seasons one and two, and “The Story of the Faithful Wookiee”, from none other than the infamous Star Wars Holiday Special, will all be coming out April 2.

Non-Star Wars content being released in April includes Blue Sky’s Rio, my personal favorite movie from the studio, one that I liked so much that I bought the soundtrack for it. That movie got me through some dark times in my life when I was living week-to-week in a hotel at the church’s expense.

“Big Shot”, an original Disney+ TV series about a disgraced college basketball coach given one last shot at coaching by leading a high-school girl’s team, is coming out April 16. And throughout the month, we have the continuing series “The Falcon and the Winter Soldier” from Marvel, and “The Mighty Ducks: Game Changers” from Disney, both of which are debuting in March.

It’s a good time to be a Disney+ subscriber; we’re finally getting some real depth in the lineup.

Until they bring back The Star Wars Holiday Special in its entirety including Princess Leia singing the “Life Day” song and Diahann Carroll doing that pornish-thing that got Lumpy so bothered, I’m not signing up. Give the people what they want, Disney!


No Droids or Ewoks?

Yes to “Ewoks”, no to “Droids”, for the time being.

Caravan of Courage is the movie that haunted my memories for nearly three decades before @Max_Torque discovered the connection.
