What are the best Disney Plus series to watch in April 2024?

Gear up for a stellar April on Disney Plus! April 2024 highlights the return of some of the platform’s best shows alongside the premiere of new animated films. Disney Plus offers a vast library of content for all ages and interests. So, while Netflix might have its own contenders, Disney Plus is ready to transport you to galaxies far, far away, reunite you with superhero favorites, and fill your home with laughter this April.

The Artful Dodger

Take a trip Down Under with The Artful Dodger, a new twist on a literary classic. This series reimagines the infamous pickpocket from Oliver Twist, Jack Dawkins, but places him in a new frontier – 1850s Australia. It’s interesting to see how this classic trickster adapts his skills to a new world and time period. The series explores Dodger’s internal conflict as he juggles his seemingly respectable career as a surgeon with the allure of his criminal past. It’s a complex character study with shades of grey. The series offers a glimpse into the unique world of 1850s Australia, a time of both boom and hardship.

The Bear

Witness the steamy world of a Chicago sandwich shop with The Bear on Netflix. The Bear throws you into the heart of a chaotic and pressure-filled kitchen. It offers a realistic portrayal of the restaurant industry, with yelling chefs, messy kitchens, and the constant struggle to keep up with demand. The show isn’t just about the food. It’s about the people who make it. Carmy’s journey of personal growth and his interactions with the quirky crew that runs the shop is at the heart of the show’s appeal.

(Only available with Disney Plus + Hulu Duo or Trio subscription.)


Iwájú marks Disney Animation Studios’ first foray into long-form animation, and it breaks new ground by being set in a futuristic Lagos, Nigeria. Iwájú centers around two friends, Tola, a wealthy girl from an island utopia, and Kole, a self-taught tech wiz from the mainland. Their contrasting backgrounds set the stage for an exciting story of friendship, discovery, and challenging the status quo.


Marvel Cinematic Universe fans won’t want to miss Loki on Disney Plus. Tom Hiddleston’s Loki is one of the most popular characters in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. The series gives him a chance to shine as he grapples with his identity and destiny. Loki dives into the world of the Time Variance Authority (TVA), an organization that monitors the timeline and eliminates alternate timelines. It’s a mind-bending exploration of time travel with surprising twists and turns. The series connects directly to the larger MCU and has implications for the franchise’s future.

Percy Jackson and the Olympians

Percy Jackson and the Olympians isn’t your typical Greek mythology adaptation. Overseen by series author Rick Riordan himself, the adaptation promises faithfulness to the beloved book series. Whether you’re a Percy Jackson fan or new to the world of demigods, this show offers something for everyone. For fans of the books, it’s the chance to see their favorite characters come alive on screen in a way that respects the source material. Newcomers will be introduced to Greek myths in a fun and approachable way, making Percy Jackson a gateway to these classic stories. Unlike the movie adaptations, this series format allows for a slower pace. That means more time for character development and a deeper exploration of the world of demigods and the Olympians.

Star Wars: Ahsoka

Star Wars fans rejoice! Ahsoka Tano, the fan-favorite Togruta Jedi apprentice, finally gets a live-action series. This series gives fans a chance to see her story continue in a live-action format for the first time. Ahsoka builds upon the stories established in the animated shows Star Wars: The Clone Wars and Star Wars Rebels. While you don’t necessarily need to have seen these shows to enjoy Ahsoka, watching them beforehand can add context to the characters and events.

Star Wars: The Bad Batch

Star Wars fans, buckle up for The Bad Batch on Netflix. This animated series picks up right after the Clone Wars concludes, exploring the rise of the Empire from a fresh angle. Follow Clone Force 99, a squad of genetically enhanced clones with exceptional skills who must carve their path in a rapidly changing galaxy. Witness their struggle to adapt as the clone army transitions and the Empire tightens its grip. The Bad Batch brings the signature Star Wars action you expect, filled with thrilling fights and pulse-pounding chases.

X-Men ’97

For fans of the original 90s X-Men cartoon, X-Men ’97 is a dream come true. It picks up right where the original left off, with the same animation style and familiar voices. The show has already garnered a perfect score on Rotten Tomatoes, which is incredibly promising. Critics are praising its faithfulness to the source material while incorporating new storylines. If you loved the action sequences of the original series, you won’t be disappointed with X-Men ’97. It promises to be packed with exciting battles between the X-Men and their classic villains. Even if you haven’t seen the original, X-Men ’97 is still a great choice. It tackles timeless themes like acceptance and prejudice, making it relevant for viewers of all ages.
