Disney+ has something new for everyone this month, whether you’re waiting excitedly for the finale of Marvel's Moon Knight, the newest Disney+ Star Wars miniseries, Obi-Wan Kenobi, or the newest retelling of Cinderella, which swaps glass slippers for sneakers.

Moon Knight's final episode premieres on Star Wars Day — aka May 4. But fans won't need to wait too long for the streamer's next series. Obi-Wan Kenobi picks up 10 years after the events of Star Wars: Revenge of the Sith, with Obi-Wan still struggling over the betrayal of his best friend and former Jedi apprentice, Anakin Skywalker. 

And after a series of delays, Sneakerella, starring Lexi Underwood and Chosen Jacobs, will finally make its grand entrance to Disney+ on May 13. 

Still not sure on what you should stream next? Keep reading to check out the highlights of what’s new on Disney+ in May, and be sure to check out everything new coming to Prime Video, Hulu, Peacock and more this month.
