Everything Coming To Disney+ In May: Star Wars: Bad Batch, Cruella

Disney+ will have some heavy-hitting adds in May, from original series like Star Wars: The Bad Batch and more episodes of Big Shot and the new Mighty Ducks: Game Changers series airing right now. We also get season 2 of High School Musical: The Musical debuting. No new Marvel MCU series this month; we get a break before Loki in June. But another Fox X-Men film joins the service with X-men: The Last Stand coming mid-month, and Fantastic Four: Rise of the Silver Surfer will also be on there. The big one will be the Premier Access debut of Cruella on May 28th. You can see all the Disney+ adds for May down below.
