What’s new on Disney+ Canada for kids and families in March 2021


New content is coming to Disney+! The streaming service from Disney has announced which new TV shows and movies will be added to its lineup next year, and of course that means more options for the whole family, including the new movie Raya and the Last Dragon on Premier Access plus new titles for grown-ups from their new content brand STAR (which parents are able to lock for kids through the parental controls). There are quite a few things to look forward to in March, so check out the full lineup with specific release dates below.

But first, an important note: The age recommendations offered below are approximate. Every kid is different, and you’re the best judge of what’s appropriate and what your kid can handle.
