Disney Plus January 2023 new releases: The Bad Batch, Willow, and more

Disney Plus launched in 2019 with most of Disney’s back catalog, but the platform still hasn’t reached maximum capacity just yet. In addition to original content, like the currently airing Willow series, a host of older movies and shows trickle onto Disney Plus each month.

The newest season of Star Wars: The Bad Batch premieres in the first week of January. New episodes of Willow and National Treasure: Edge of History also hit Disney Plus throughout the month. And at the end of January, there’s something called T. Rex Autopsy. I want to know more.
