Disney+ has plenty of the right stuff in October, including the return of The Mandalorian and the premiere of The Right Stuff.

Season two of the Star Wars spin-off streams weekly from October 30, with The Mandalorian and The Child continuing their trek through a dangerous galaxy following the collapse of the Galactic Empire.

The latest adaptation of the Tom Wolfe book about the early days of the US space programme and the Mercury 7 astronauts will stream weekly from October 9, when the first two of eight episodes will launch.

Produced for National Geographic by Leonardo DiCaprio’s Appian Way and Warner Bros. Television, it’s billed as taking “a clear-eyed look at America’s first ‘reality show,’ when ambitious astronauts and their families became instant celebrities in a competition of money, fame and immortality”.

Patrick J. Adams, Jake McDorman, Colin O’Donoghue, James Lafferty, Aaron Staton, Michael Trotter and Micah Stock star.

Also new will be the Disney+ original movie, Clouds, which stars Fin Argus as a teenage musician who lands the record deal of his dreams while battling a rare bone cancer (October 16); Neve Campbell and Tom Everett Scott co-star as his parents.

Another premiere, Meet the Chimps (October 16), is a six-part Nat Geo series about the secret life of one of the largest and most unique wildlife sanctuaries in the world, the 200-acre Chimp Haven in Louisiana’s forest heartland.

Lost on Everest (October 16) is a Nat Geo special about a team of professional climbers, filmmakers and experts who try to determine what happened to Andrew “Sandy” Irvine and George Leigh Mallory when they attempted the first true summit of Mount Everest in 1924.

And The Last Secrets of the Nasca (October 23) promises to shed light on the mystery that shrouds the strange and puzzling world of the ancient Nasca and Paracas civilisations.

As well as the season four premiere of PJ Masks on October 30, there’s a new animated Frozen short.
