The schedule of new Disney+ films and series for April 2023 is here! A month with iconic franchises and characters. Here is all the news not to miss.
Temperatures are still far from ideal throughout France, so take the opportunity to stay under a plaid and watch films, series or documentaries. And you will have the opportunity with the additions of Netflix, Prime Video or Disney + which announces these new releases of April 2023. If it is a very shy month compared to others, we note everything even the presence of established franchises. Moreover, one of them is a pure product of the house of Mickey and is making a comeback with a relatively anticipated feature film.
So as not to miss any of these new releases, here is the complete line-up of the month as well as a focus on the biggest tracks not to be missed.
The new Disney+ releases of April 2023
It won’t be Disney+’s most memorable month, but you’ll probably find what you’re looking for in the selection of films. For April 2023, head to the home of superheroes, Marvel Studios, with the arrival of Spider-Man Far Home. The second feature film in the trilogy starring Tom Holland (Uncharted) and Zendaya (Euphoria).
The second highlight of the next few days on Disney Plus will be the release of Peter Pan & Wendy which, drum roll, tells the story of the character who refuses to grow up and his sidekick Tinkerbell. A program which is released exclusively on the SVOD platform, and which will therefore not be distributed in cinemas. A film directed by a rather unexpected filmmaker: David Lowery. In recent years he has produced A Ghost Story et The Green Knight.
Director James Cameron is also at the heart of these novelties with an animal documentary, and the TV series adaptation of one of his successes.

The Disney Plus programs of April 2023 not to be missed
Let’s get to the heart of the matter with the unmissable Disney + of April 2023 in terms of films, series but also documentaries. What’s good this month? A big family blockbuster with Spider-Man Far Homea dive into the magical world of Peter Pan for adults who refuse to grow up, a horrific thriller produced by director Guillermo Del Toro – one of Hideo Kojima’s BFFs -, an original animated series or even two projects closely or remotely linked to the filmmaker with James Cameron.
Spider-Man Far From Home (14 avril)
With the new Spider-Man trilogy, starring young actors Tom Holland and his life and screen companion Zendaya, Sony Pictures has hit the jackpot and found its golden goose. Enough to make us forget their many cinematographic failures in recent years.
In Spider-Man Far From HomeMJ and Peter Parker go on a school trip to Europe, but the two companions will quickly be disturbed by the villainous Mysterio played by Jake Gyllenhaal (Night Call, Ambulance…).
Peter Pan & Wendy (28 avril)
Nostalgic for the fabulous Hook by Steven Spielberg, here is an unreleased film that might interest you. At least if you are at least attracted to Peter Pan and the characters that revolve around it. Peter Pan & Wendy is an adaptation of the eponymous novel and focuses on the meeting between the boy who refuses to grow up, and his good fairy, Tinker Bell. Happy in their imaginary country, they will be confronted with Captain Hook. A classic story known to all, but in a more current version.
Hungry (April 21)
Without being a complete success, hungry allows itself to be watched for its few moments and its history. We follow a teacher, played by Keri Rusell (Crazy Bear, The Americans…), investigates one of his students who seems undernourished as the mining town they live in is plagued by murders. Massacres that do not seem to be perpetuated by ordinary men or animals.
Produced by Guillermo Del Toro (Pacific Rim, Nightmare Alley… and a realization of Scott Cooper to whom we owe it The Blazes of Anger et The Pale Blue Eye with Christian Bale, or even Hostiles.
Tengoku-Daimakyo (1er avril)
Hirotaka Mori (Erased, Sword Art Online: Ordinal Scale…) is back with the animated series Tengoku-Daimakyo or A Journey Beyond Heaven. A program that will be available on Disney + at the rate of one episode per week. It is an adaptation of the mangas of Masakazu Ishiguro which takes place in the year 2024, in a dystopian universe where Japan is left in tatters.
After the disappearance of civilization, “infamous monsters” took over the country. A young woman, named Kiruko, must transport a boy named Maru to the « paradis ».
True Lies: For Better or Worse (April 19)
Finally a 4K HDR restoration and all the movie stuff Trues Lies by James Cameron? No, even if a little aside, it should happen in the next few months or at least in 2024. But anyway, we have a TV series inspired by the action comedy of the father of Avatar 2, which was itself a remake French feature film The Total.
Harry Tasker’s character is still an Omega Sector spy, but his wife, Helen, is now a teacher instead of a lawyer.
Secrets of Elephants (April 22)
Nature lover, especially the seabed, James Cameron signs a documentary “ The secrets of elephants for Disney+. A trip around the world to get to know these behemoths. As usual, the Hollywood technician combines his passion with the advances in technology to immerse us with realism in this new documentary which, for once, takes place on solid ground and not in the abyssal depths.
