Updated: May 27



Another month is coming up and that means a truck load of new content is coming to Disney+. The streaming platform will launch two new documentary series in May, perfect for movie lovers and those who like seeing what happens behind the scenes in Hollywood. The first new series entitled 'Prop Culture' will follow prop collector Dan Lanigan on his adventures to find artifacts from adored Disney films. Lanigan will reunite filmmakers and actors with unique items seen in films such as Pirates of the Caribbean, Who Framed Roger Rabbit?, Mary Poppins and so many more. The first season of the series will drop all eight episodes when it premieres on May 1st, 2020. To watch the official trailer for Prop Culture, click here.


Star Wars fans can celebrate everything from a galaxy far, far away of course on May 4th. Disney recently announced that a new documentary series will take fans behind the scenes of Disney+'s most recent hit. Disney Gallery: The Mandalorian will pull back the curtain on the first ever, live-action Star Wars tv show with a look at how various episodes were made and roundtable discussions with the series creator, Jon Favreau, along with his fellow directors and actors from the series. Disney Gallery will premiere its first episode on May 4th, with seven more episodes dropping weekly on the streaming platform. To watch a trailer for the new docuseries, click here.
