The House of Mouse is preparing to bless us with a plethora of new content that will no doubt keep us entertained and captivated.
So buckle up and get ready; here are our Top Five picks set to land on Disney+ in April 2023.
1. The Crossover: Season One
Release date: April 5
Official Synopsis: The Crossover, based on the bestselling novel by Kwame Alexander, follows twin middle school basketball phenoms Jordan “J.B” and Josh “Filthy” Bell as they struggle with growing up, growing apart, and finding themselves — on and off the court.
Filthy is a laser-focused athlete, determined to be the next Lebron James. His brother and best friend, J.B., has always dutifully followed along with the plan. But when new girl Alexis comes to town and J.B.’s interest in basketball starts to wane, tension starts to brew between the brothers — threatening to break their lifelong bond.
2. Tiny Beautiful Things: Season 1
Release date: April 7
Official Synopsis: Based on the best-selling collection by Cheryl Strayed, Tiny Beautiful Things follows Clare (Kathryn Hahn), a floundering writer who becomes a revered advice columnist while her own life is falling apart.
When we first meet Clare, her marriage to her husband Danny is barely limping along; her teenage daughter, Rae, is pushing her away; and her once-promising writing career is non-existent.
So when an old writing pal asks her to take over as the advice columnist Dear Sugar, she thinks she has no business giving anyone advice.
After reluctantly taking on the mantle of Sugar however, Clare’s life unfurls in a complex fabric of memory, exploring her most pivotal moments from childhood through present day, and excavating the beauty, struggle, and humour in her unhealed wounds.
Through Sugar, Clare forms a salve for her readers – and for herself – to show us that we are not beyond rescue, that our stories can ultimately save us. And, perhaps, bring us back home.
3. Rennervations: Season One
Release date: April 12
