This Lunar New Year, Disney+ has lined up an array of exciting shows for both the adults and kiddos to enjoy watching together!
Chinese New Year is all about gathering and spending time with the family! From reliving Star Wars memories to performing your own at-home karaoke with Encanto, here’s our top 5 most exciting Disney+ shows to keep both the adults and kids entertained this festive season:
1. Star Wars: The Bad Batch S2
In season 1, we were introduced to The Bad Batch, a group of elite Clone troopers who defected from the Empire and set out to save their fellow clones from imminent destruction. While their mission was successful, the capital of Kamino, Tipoca City was sunk, and Crosshair parted ways with the group. But new missions, allies and enemies await them in season 2, and new adventures await young and old viewers!
2. Beauty and the Beast: A 30th Celebration
It’s a tale as old as time… or at least 30 years old! One of Disney’s favourite animated classics has just hit its 30th anniversary, and we’re celebrating with a special live-edition featuring gorgeous sets and costumes, and performances from incredible singers like Josh Groban as Beast and H.E.R as Belle. Both young and old can enjoy this enchanting showcase, reliving memories and introducing a new generation to a timeless classic!
3. National Treasure: Edge of History
If you’re a fan of the National Treasure franchise, it’s time to introduce your kids to a whole new adventure in this spin-off series. Jess Valenzuela’s life is turned upside down when an enigmatic stranger gives her a clue to a centuries-old treasure that might be connected to her long-dead father. But can Jess outsmart a black-market antiquities dealer in a race to find history’s greatest lost treasure and uncover the truth about her family’s past?
Nothing says prosperity like a quest for treasure, making this the perfect Lunar New Year watch!

After Mr. Benedict and his kids' successful mission to save the world in season 1, we join them again in season 2 for a new crucial mission: stopping Mr. Benedict’s nefarious twin brother, Dr. Curtain. When Mr Benedict and Number Two go missing in Europe, the kids must embark on an adventure navigating foreign countries and new foes to save them.

If you’re just like us, you haven’t been able to get Encanto’s songs out of your head since the movie premiered in 2021. Whether it’s because they’re such bops or because your kids keep singing the tunes around the house, why not kick-start a karaoke session at your open house with this special concert spectacular that reunites the original voice cast? Don’t talk, but sing about Bruno this Lunar New Year with Encanto at The Hollywood Bowl!
