New on Disney+ In June 2024

Disney+ is proving itself a streamer for all ages this June. For the adults, we have a new season of The Bear along with exciting series debuts such as Clipped and Becoming Karl Lagerfeld. For the younger crowd (and plenty of adults as well), there’s The Acolyte, a grim Star Wars series chronicling the final days of the High Republic era. And while there isn’t much by way of movie releases, we are getting a mini-Donald Duck retrospective that should appeal to the kid in all of us. Here’s everything new on Disney+ in June.

Big City Greens the Movie: Spacecation

The animated exploits of mischievous country boy Cricket Green get the feature-length treatment in this upcoming film. After ruining the family vacation, Cricket tries to make amends by signing up for an experimental farming program…in space. Interstellar chaos ensues, naturally.

New Series on Disney+

Disney+ is dropping a bounty of new seasons and shows this June, most of which are Star Originals. Here are some highlights.

The Bear: Season 3

Release Date: 27 June 2024

Like the very restaurant at its centre, this gripping drama series is achieving success one hard-earned moment and accolade at a time. In Season 2, Chef Carmy Berzatto (Jeremy Allen White) and his team converted their humble sandwich shop into a fine dining establishment and experienced the ups and downs of a harrowing opening night. Season 3 finds Berzatto pushing himself like never before as he competes at the highest level and makes personal sacrifices along the way. In other words: it’s another freaking intense season of The Bear!

The Acolyte

Release Date: 5 June 2024

The latest Star Wars series takes place at the tail end of the High Republic era (about 100 years before The Phantom Menace) and reunites a former Padawan with her Jedi Master. As the pair investigates a series of heinous crimes, they brush up against a sinister force. Series creator Leslye Headland is promising a dark and morally ambiguous show that’s unlike anything else from the franchise so make like a co-pilot and tag along for the ride.


Release Date: 4 June 2024

A leaked 2014 recording of former Clippers owner Donald Sterling was the racist remark heard around the world (and an early sign of things to come for the culture at large). As it turns out, however, there was more to the story than first met the headlines. Ed O’Neill plays the disgraced figure in this limited drama series, which renders a portrait of dysfunction on multiple fronts.

Abbott Elementary: Season 3

Release Date: 26 June 2024

A workplace comedy quite unlike any other, this Office-style sitcom takes place within Philadelphia’s harried public school system. Follow an assortment of teachers as they grapple with a lack of funding, a tone-deaf principal, general indifference from the district at large, and other modern dilemmas. It might not sound like laugh-out-loud material until you watch it.

Becoming Karl Lagerfeld

Release Date: 7 June 2024

Daniel Brühl plays German fashion designer Karl Lagerfeld in this upcoming miniseries. It takes place in the world of 1970s Parisian fashion and depicts the future icon at the age of 38, when he was still trying to make a name for himself. After meeting the young Jacques de Bascher, Lagerfeld is finally ready to take on rival Yves Saint Laurent and Laurent’s partner, Pierre Berge.

Criminal Minds: Evolution (Season 17)

Release Date: 7 June 2024

Criminal Minds ended its run in 2020 only to be revived and continued under the Evolution banner. This time around, the members of the Behavioral Analysis Unit (BAU) must crack open a network of serial killers that formed during the COVID-19 pandemic. The 16th season concluded with a shocking finale and this one picks up where things left off. As the BAU continues its investigation into the GOLD STAR conspiracy, serial killer Elias Voit ends up in their own backyard.

Under the Bridge

Release Date: 12 June 2024

Adapted from a 1997 true crime novel, this compelling miniseries revolves around the murder of 14-year-old Reena Virk (Vritika Gupta). While investigating the crime, writer Rebecca Godfrey (played by Riley Keough) and police officer Cam Bentland (Lily Gladstone) uncover a dark underbelly of teenage delinquency. The story continues to send shock waves through Victoria BC even decades later so be sure to catch it.

New Disney+ Documentaries and Reality

Disney+ usually drops a few solid documentaries each month and this June is no exception. Here’s a closer look at two highlights.

Diane von Furstenberg: Woman in Charge

Release Date: 25 June 2024

Belgian fashion designer Diane von Furstenberg—also known as DVF—has lived a life, to put it mildly. The child of a Holocaust survivor, she introduced the original “wrap dress” in 1974 and thereby ascended to the top of her respective domain. Oh, and did we mention her stint as an actual princess from 1969 to 1972? Witness her rise to the top of a male-dominated industry and many other achievements in this new documentary, which features interviews with fellow legends such as Oprah, Hilary Clinton, and Marc Jacobs.

Erased: WW2’s Heroes of Colour

Release Date: 5 June 2024

Idris Elba narrates this British docuseries about the 8 million soldiers of colour who fought for the Allies during WWII. Using a mix of archival footage and dramatisations, it tells true stories of heroism that have gone untold for too long.

Things to Consider for Disney+

When it comes to Disney+, the streamer has no shortage of amazing series, documentaries and movies to watch, but how does it compare to Netflix and Prime Video? To make things easier, we’ve put together a few key considerations to keep in mind the next time you visit the streaming service.

Is There Anything for Adults on Disney+?

Despite being a largely children-led streaming platform, Disney+ is also home to an extensive catalogue of films and series for adults. In Australia, the streamer has the rights to channels such as Discovery, Hulu and Star, giving you access to a host of true crime documentaries and scripted series such as All That We Destroy, Pam & Tommy and many more.

Are There Any R-rated movies on Disney+?

In recent years, Disney+ has added more R-rated titles to attract adult subscribers. At present, the streaming service boasts R-rated films such as Deadpool, Deadpool 2, and Logan, with the streaming platform likely to increase its portfolio in the coming months.

Disney+ vs Netflix

While Netflix has a larger range of new original content, Disney+ is loaded with nostalgic classics and time-honoured favourites, so there is certainly a case to be made that the streaming platform is the top option. If you have kids, Disney+ is the obvious choice, but can also be a boost for adults, due to the streamer’s connections with Hulu and Star.
