What Will You Binge On Disney Plus?
The Oregonian Offers Suggestions On What To Stream
I’m not yet working from my home, but a whole lot of folks are. And there will be a whole lot of kids, aged 0 to 99 looking for something to watch as they wait out coronavirus concerns.
Today, The Oregonian’s Kristi Turnquist posted, “Disney Plus: 8 great shows to stream when coronavirus concerns keep you at home.”
What To Binge
For everyone who’s heeding the authorities’ advice to slow the spread of the coronavirus by avoiding large public gatherings, there’s at least one small comfort: We have more at-home viewing options than ever before. If you plan on being home with kids during spring break, for example, you can check out Disney Plus, the streaming service that’s packed with family friendly choices.
Here are some of The Oregonian’s top picks:
Easily the most talked-about original on Disney Plus, this story is set in the “Star Wars” universe, and follows a bounty hunter (played by Pedro Pascal), whose adventures are a cross between science fiction and classic Westerns.
An unlikely hit among many Disney Plus subscribers, this short-form series features the lovable spork, Forky, introduced in “Toy Story 4.” In the short animated episodes, Forky (voiced by Tony Hale), asks such questions as “What is love?,” “What is a pet?,” “What is money?,” and “What is a friend?”
The actor and musician gets to follow his curious mind on various paths, as episodes involve Jeff Goldblum exploring topics and items that seem ordinary until he discovers some of the people and ideas involved. For example, Goldblum visits with Tyler Malek, co-founder of Salt & Straw, the ice cream empire that was founded in Portland.
The above mirror my top picks for Disney+.
Goldblum is every bit the entertainer you’d hope he’d be and delivers all of the wacky narration you want. Forky, well he’s often poignant and always makes me laugh. And The Mandalorian often makes me feel like the young boy who first started watching Star Wars.
All of these shows present a blank slate, with lots of imagination, and a whole lot of fun – exactly what I expect from Disney programming.
