Each month Disney+ has been adding new entertainment, both original content and pieces from the archives. While June is a quiet month with a lot fewer fresh arrivals than previously, there are still a few debuts and rereleases worth checking out, including at least one feature film that in other times would be destined for the big screen. Here’s a summary of what’s arriving on Disney+ this June.
New Disney+ TV Shows to Look For
There is only one new Disney+ Original premiering this month, but it should be a lot of fun for folks interested in behind the scenes and animation. Into the Unknown: Making Frozen 2 (June 26) promises an in-depth look at the making of Frozen 2, with unprecedented access to the process. Cast, writers, artists, and filmmakers all welcomed in cameras to each stage of the creation of the smash hit, documenting in detail the hard work that goes into a major Walt Disney Animation feature. This six-part documentary is a first in its level of access to the process, even for Disney, known for drawing back the veil on magic-making. All six episodes will be available on debut.
While not new, some great shows are arriving on Disney+ that are worth checking out this month, including Women of Impact: Changing the World (June 5). This National Geographic series looks at how women are making a powerful impact around the world, from the newsroom to the classroom, from discovering human origins in Africa to improving the planet’s health.
School House Rock! on Disney+
The other big highlight? The beloved educational classic, Schoolhouse Rock!, which has been a Disney holding since the mid-1990s. Over the years, it has added to the original episodes from the 1970s and ’80s with new songs and specials teaching kids about everything from multiplication and grammar to the American government structure. While it’s a bit late for the at-home school year, it might be a useful tool if quarantine schooling continues—and it’s a fun romp for both kids and nostalgic parents either way.

Movies Coming to Disney+ in June
Artemis Fowl (June 12) is the one significant new cinematic release for Disney this month, an action-packed fantasy film that would have been the big summer release in May before the COVID-19 pandemic. Based on Eoin Colfer’s beloved book, the film has been off and on and changed hands for nearly 20 years before getting produced by Disney, with direction by Kenneth Branagh (Thor, Cinderella). The story follows 12-year-old genius Artemis Fowl on a spellbinding adventure to save his father, which includes traveling into a magical underground civilization.
