Best originals to binge on Disney Plus Singapore
1. Loki: The Series
When they say your actions come with consequences, we’re certainly glad that Loki’s various questionable actions brought him back to life for his own series. How did it happen? When the time heist chaos happened in Infinity war, Loki took the portal-creating Tesseract and portal-ed his way out. This created a Loki variant – the one that we will be following in the Loki series. This variant then gets caught by the organisation in charge of protecting the Sacred Timeline, and thus the adventures begin! You can definitely expect a lot of chaos from the God of Mischief as he is forced to fix the havoc he created with his free will taken from him. Will he finally transform into to be a hero or will he continue to stray from the “sacred” path that he is supposed to be on?
2. The Mandalorian
It’s no stretch to say this is the series that makes Disney Plus Singapore a must-subscribe for many! As the Star Wars universe’s first live-action series, The Mandalorian is an original show that explores what happens after the credits of Return of the Jedi roll. Even if you’ve never seen a Star Wars film, don’t fret — it’s essentially a futuristic Western narrative peppered with Star Wars references. By making each episode digestible, creator Jon Favreau has expertly crafted a series that’s perfectly accessible to newcomers. From the adorable Grogu (Baby Yoda) to Pedro Pascal as the titular bounty hunter, the series has achieved mainstream fame through its stellar characters and fresh take on the Star Wars lore!
Dying to find out what’s next for the Avengers? How about a series as quirky as WandaVision! As the most popular launch series on Disney Plus Singapore, no one expected the Scarlet Witch and Vision to appear in such bizarre sitcom scenarios. From classic TV homages to various nods and easter eggs for Marvel movie fans, it’s heartening to see our favourite characters return in such a whimsical setting. Without spoiling anything, we’ll simply say WandaVision subverts fan expectations in a good way and ignites the hype that is Phase Four of the Marvel Cinematic Universe!
Don’t we all love a coming of age film? Well Luca is just the Pixar movie that will be sure to warm the cockles of your heart. Follow the adventure of Luca, the undersea fish-herder that is intrigued by the world above the sea. Unlike in The Little Mermaid where sacrifices have to be made to turn human, Luca magically transforms into human form when he’s on dry land. Along with his partner in crime, Alberto, they go on a grand adventure exploring the Italian Riviera of the 1950s. Follow them as they navigate through the little Italian town, making new friends and finding themselves having to swim their way out of fishy situations! Definitely the perfect weekend movie for the whole family.
5. High School Musical: The Musical: The Series
Among a sea of teen dramas that take themselves too seriously, High School Musical: The Musical: The Series is certainly a breath of fresh air for Disney Plus Singapore subscribers! Don’t be fooled, this isn’t Disney trying to recreate the magic that was the original 2006 TV film. Rather, it’s a tongue-in-cheek take that places new characters in a familiar setting. The story begins in HSM’s East High School as the drama club attempts to stage the original musical. What follows is a tonne of self-referential jokes that mock the simplicity of High School Musical while pausing to highlight all the melodrama and over-the-top pieces the series is known for!
6. Pixar Popcorn
Can’t get enough of Pixar’s movies on Disney Plus Singapore? Pixar Popcorn gives you more of what you love by showcasing your favourite Pixar characters in bite-sized shorts. From Toy Story’s Buzz Lightyear to The Incredibles’ Parr family, you’ll adore how these self-contained mini shorts shine more light on all your beloved characters. Don’t let its run time fool you, these high production shorts have all the charm and polish of their movie counterparts that entertain you without requiring your precious time commitment!
7. Marvel’s 616
Contrary to popular belief, Disney Plus Singapore isn’t all about blockbuster hero movies and tween dramas! The Marvel’s 616 documentary peels back the layers and explores how Marvel has impacted the world through its various mediums. From retelling the creation of Japanese Spider-man to showcasing characters who got left on the cutting room floor, there’s plenty to chew through for new Marvel Universe fans. Overall, Marvel’s 616 is a love letter to those interested in Marvel’s inner workings and want to know how they’ve become the media juggernaut it is today!
8. Star Wars: The Clone Wars
For fans of the prequel trilogy, there’s a bittersweet feeling to seeing Star Wars: The Clone Wars conclude with its seventh season on Disney Plus Singapore. Despite originally airing back in 2008, it’s taken 12 years to finally see Disney bridge the gap between Episodes II and III! Thanks to The Clone Wars, we get to explore the conflict between the Republic and the Federation in greater detail as the battle felt rushed in the films. Additionally, fan favourite characters like Ahsoka Tano and Darth Maul get their own arcs as we witness their perspectives on how the Empire came to power!
9. The Wonderful World Of Mickey Mouse
Naysayers might say Mickey Mouse is a bland and uninteresting character but we beg to differ, especially with his latest showing in Disney Plus Singapore’s The Wonderful World Of Mickey Mouse (TWWoMM). From chasing after a sentient hotdog to running from an undead Goofy, Disney goes all out with painting wacky, self-contained tales of Mickey’s adventures. Unlike other modern animations, TWWoMM uses a stylised look that references the Mickey mouse cartoons of yesteryear. Also, the solid outlines help emphasise the overall zany cartoon look!
