This Month’s Highlights

Just Beyond

Ghosts, aliens, monsters — oh my. Disney is putting their own spin on R.L. Stine stories with the latest series, co-executive produced by Stine himself, Just Beyond. A nice entry for the Halloween season, the anthology series is premiering eight different creepy stories in individual episodes. It’s just nice to see a Disney show get weird. How weird? We’ll find out on October 13.

Black Widow

If you missed out on Black Widow in theaters or didn’t want to pay an extra $30 dollars, we don’t blame you, the MCU film is finally available to stream for “free” for all paying Disney+ subscribers this month. You can finally see (or rewatch) Florence Pugh shine as Yelena Belova and say goodbye to Scarlett Johansson’s Natasha Romanoff, again.
