We made it to another weekend and are somehow zeroing in on the halfway point of June (already?). In celebration, dive into some Disney Plus content for the next couple of days.
New releases are highlighted by Disney Plus’ exclusive content, including Loki, The Mighty Ducks, John Stamos’ all-girls basketball team, and much more.
Here is what is going on Disney Plus this weekend — actually.
Marvel Studios’ Loki features the God of Mischief as he steps out of his brother’s shadow in a new Disney+ series that takes place after the events of Avengers: Endgame. Tom Hiddleston returns as the title character, joined by Owen Wilson, Gugu Mbatha-Raw, Sophia Di Martino, Wunmi Mosaku and Richard E. Grant.
