The iconic voice of Goofy and Pluto for more than 30 years, Disney Legend Bill Farmer steps out from behind the microphone to meet his own favorite characters: dogs! Join him as he crosses the country meeting dogs doing all kinds of incredible jobs that make our lives better. The first episode, “Whale Poop Dogs & Sheep Herding Dogs,” finds Farmer at sea with a dog who sniffs for whale poop and meeting a dog that shepherds a sheep ranch.

Maleficent: Mistress of Evil—Friday, May 15, on Disney+
The story of Disney’s most iconic villain continues in the sequel to 2014’s Maleficent—making its streaming debut on Disney+! Although the years have been kind to Maleficent (Angelina Jolie) and Aurora (Elle Fanning), the hatred between man and fairies still exists. Aurora’s engagement to Prince Phillip (Harris Dickinson) is cause for celebration as the wedding serves to unite the kingdom of Ulstead and the neighboring Moors. But, when an unexpected encounter introduces a powerful new alliance, Maleficent and Aurora splinter to opposing sides in a Great War, testing their loyalties and causing them to question if they can truly be a family. Michelle Pfeiffer and Chiwetel Ejiofor round out the stellar cast.

May 15: The Great (Series Premiere) (Hulu)
All 10 episodes of the satirical, comedic drama about the rise of Catherine the Great from outsider to the longest reigning female ruler in Russia’s history arrive Friday. The Great is a fictionalized, fun and anachronistic story of an idealistic, romantic young girl (Fanning), who arrives in Russia for an arranged marriage to the mercurial Emperor Peter (Nicholas Hoult). Hoping for love and light, she finds instead a dangerous, depraved, backward world that she resolves to change. All she has to do is kill her husband, beat the church, baffle the military, and get the court onside. It’s a modern story about the past that encompasses the many roles Catherine played over her lifetime: lover, teacher, ruler, friend, and fighter.
