New to Disney+ in March

Variety reports season three of Star Wars: The Mandalorian, which has just launched on Disney+, probably won’t make any sense unless you’ve watched The Book of Boba Fett.

Here’s a round-up of everything casual fans need to know while those wondering how the cancelling of cast member Gina Carano (Cara Dune) would be handled story-wise can catch up here.

Mercifully, there’s much more to Disney+ in March than just another Star Wars off-shoot, including the 40-years-in-the-making Mel Brooks sequel History of the World, Part II (March 6), the Oscar nominated The Banshees of Inisherin (March 8), a new movie version of Boston Stranger from the perspective of the reporters who covered the true-life serial killings (March 17) and S2 of Doogie Kamealoha, M.D. (March 31).

The Watchful Eye (March 29) is an acclaimed mystery-thriller about a live-in nanny for an affluent family in a Manhattan building where everyone has deadly secrets and ulterior motives while Rye Lane (March 31) is a highly-rated rom-com movie about two South London youngsters who connect one eventful day while reeling from bad breakups.

Also watch for:

➢ Finding Michael (March 3): Bear Grylls documentary about the search for an Everest mountaineer who disappeared 23 years ago.

 Will Trent (March 8): A critics’ favourite based on the Karin Slaughter books about a special agent who overcomes a harsh childhood to achieve the highest clearance rate in Georgia (this week there was a multi-platform ratings hike for the ABC series).

Still Missing Morgan (March 8): An ABC news investigation of a 30-year-old kidnapping.

UnPrisoned (March 10): A Kerry Washington comedy about a solo-mum therapist whose ex-con dad moves in with the family

Chang Can Dunk (March 10): A 16-year-old Asian American student in the marching band bets the school basketball star that he can dunk by homecoming.

  1. As a fan of series 1 & 2 of The Mandalorian, I have to say the first episode of series 3 was very meh, verging on boring in fact. Thankfully Picard series 3 and Carnival Row series 2 are turning out to be brilliant.

  2. That’s great to hear about Prime video’s Carnival Row, Darren. I loved the first season.

  3. Same here Philip, it’s a shame that it turned out to be an enquired taste and clearly didn’t rate as well as Amazon had hoped. I recommended it to quite a few people, but they didn’t like it.

  4. Up Here looks cute going by the trailer 😁
