Artemis Fowl

It's hard to overstate just how much of a splash Disney's Artemis Fowl made when it was announced that the feature film would forgo theaters — because nobody's going to theaters anytime soon — and instead release it on Disney+. But that's inside baseball, really, and the end result is that we get to watch the highly anticipated movie on our own time, on our own terms. So thanks, Disney.

And it's just one part of what's coming to Disney+ this June.

Elsewhere, we'll see the finale of the first season of Be Our Chef on June 5, with two families facing off in the final rematch, drawing inspiration from their favorite Disney film.

And on June 26 we get Into the Unknown: Making Frozen 2 . The series takes a look at just how hard it was to follow up on the huge hit that was the original Frozen — and and just how quickly the clock was ticking.
