The first season of WandaVision may be behind us, and there may be no new Marvel flicks coming soon, but that doesn’t mean that there’s nothing new on Disney+. April is full of must-see movies and series, finales and premieres, and we’ve curated the best of the best, from an instant animated classic to one unmissable documentary.

Whether you’re in the mood to get lost in a fantasy or just learn something new, you’ll find something to fall in love with here, with unforgettable appearances from Anthony Mackie, Sebastian Stan, Emily VanCamp, Emilio Estevez, Lauren Graham and many more.

So grab your favorite blanket, make some popcorn, and let us point you to your next big TV obsession.

The Mighty Ducks: Game Changers (new episodes every Friday)

If you loved the 1992 Emilio Estevez flick about a scrappy peewee hockey team, you should check out this TV series, which features the return of Estevez and a continuation of that homage to the sport. But this time around, the Ducks are no underdogs. When a 12-year-old team reject finds himself in need of a new squad, he builds his own, with the help of Estevez’s returning character, Gordon Bombay.

The Falcon and the Winter Soldier (new episodes every Friday)

So what if there are no new Marvel movies coming out soon? We’ve got two unforgettable characters from the Marvel Cinematic Universe teaming up for this hotly anticipated miniseries. Anthony Mackie and Sebastian Stan reprise their respective roles as Sam Wilson and Bucky Barnes, as they go on the offensive against the Flag Smasher adversary.

Night at the Museum (April 2)

When down on his luck Larry Daley (Ben Stiller) gets a job as the night guard of New York's Natural History Museum, he gets more than he bargained for. An ancient curse makes all the museum's animals and dummies and come to life. Robin Williams, Owen Wilson and Ricky Gervais also star in this 2006 comedy.
