Disney Plus Day is fast approaching, bringing new looks at upcoming Marvel and Star Wars projects, as well as other releases such as Home Sweet Home Alone. There are also some big-name movies being made available to stream, including Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings

At the moment, the full lineup hasn't been confirmed – but we can make some educated guesses. Marvel's special look will most likely include Hawkeye, with the series due to debut this November. On the Star Wars side of things, there's The Book of Boba Fett coming this year, and Obi-Wan Kenobi, The Mandalorian season 3, and Andor are reportedly coming in 2022.

We've rounded up absolutely everything you need to know about Disney Plus Day, including when it takes place, and how to watch. We'll keep adding to our guide as we learn more, too. So, scroll on for the full rundown on what Disney has in store.

It's not clear just yet how exactly Disney Plus Day will rollout this November, but Disney says the event is for subscribers – so we can assume it'll be streaming exclusively on Disney Plus, unlike Netflix's Tudum, which could be watched on YouTube. If you're not subscribed, the box below will help you out.

You can expect to find new releases on the day like Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings, Jungle Cruise, and Home Sweet Home Alone on the streamer like you would any other TV show or movie.
