Disney + surprises this week: Marvel blockbusters and two streaming recommendations

Disney + is not taking things slowly in January 2022 either and is bringing a Marvel blockbuster into its streaming offer that was still in theaters a few weeks ago. In addition, several Oscar winners appear, which you should not miss. These are our recommendations for January!


Streams Eternals from January 12th at Disney +.

Eternals is coming to Disney +! The much-discussed new Marvel blockbuster will be released on January 12th on the streaming platform – which should be especially good for those who couldn’t or didn’t want to go to the cinema when the film was released. Eternals follows on from the events of Avengers: Endgame, this time with the focus on a group of immortal superheroes – the Eternals. How they have shaped and continue to shape the history of mankind is shown by a first glimpse with the Trailer:

The Shape of Water

Streams The Shape of Water on January 14th at Disney +.

The Shape of Water won four Oscars in 2018, including the Oscar for best film of the year. The romantic fantasy drama by Guillermo del Toro tells the story of a lonely cleaning woman who works in a secret research facility. When she discovers a captive marine creature there, a unique relationship develops between the two.


Start streaming Birdman on Disney + now.

2014 hat Birdman Won four Academy Awards, including the Oscar for Best Picture of the Year. In case you missed this one-of-a-kind blockbuster back then, you can catch up on it on a winter movie night on Disney +: Birdman is a satirical drama about an old actor who wants to revive his fame on Broadway. What is special about the film, however, is the way it was made: Birdman looks to the viewer as if the entire film was shot in a single sequence. For the most part it is; only a few invisible cuts separate the long scenes.

The long-awaited series is also currently running The Book of Boba Fett on Disney +. Although only one episode is online, the next episodes will all appear on Wednesdays – until the first season is over. The Book of Boba Fett is a spin-off series from The Mandalorian and was produced by the same showrunner.
