What’s Coming to Disney Plus in April 2020

Disney Plus will continue to expand its library next month, adding older films as well as new episodes of its original programming.

Less than a month after its release on March 6, Pixar’s “Onward” is making an early jump to Disney’s streaming platform amid the coronavirus pandemic. With the vast majority of theaters now closed across the United States, the studio has elected to make the film available for viewers to watch at home.

Meanwhile, Disney Plus will celebrate Earth Month by featuring a curated collection of nature-themed documentaries and films from National Geographic and Disneynature. These will include the new documentaries “Elephant,” narrated by Meghan Markle, and “Dolphin Reef,” narrated by Natalie Portman.
