Disney+launched, the biggest selling point of the new streaming service was its popular feature film selection. These include Marvel Cinematic Universe movies, the franchise of “Star Wars” movies, and the famous Disney animated movie catalog. However, the streaming service also has several documentaries, including holiday movies, important darlings, and fan-favorite releases. Although many Disney+ documentaries are about Disney itself.
In 2018, the documentary Howard was screened at the Tribeca Film Festival and received limited theater screenings during the holidays. With an impressive 92% freshness rating of “Rotten Tomatoes”, Howard is still the latest original documentary of Disney+ released in 2020. Directed by Don Hann, the producer of “The Lion King and Beauty and the Beast,” tells the history of Howard Ashman.
Ashman wrote songs used in movies such as “Beauty and the Beast”, “Aladdin” and “The Little Mermaid”. Through audio interviews and personal photo creation, Howard directly and respectfully watched the life and death of one of the most influential writers in the history of Disney animation.
Waking Sleeping Beauty
If Howard seems familiar to Disney+ subscribers, it’s because director Don Hahn used helmets in both films and used similar technology to include photos and iconic images in audio interviews. Mix together. When Howard told the story of an outstanding music writer, “The Sleeping Beauty Waking Up” focused on Disney, from the struggle of its animation department in the mid-1980s to the revival of the 90s.

The documentary first premiered at the 2009 Telluride Film Festival and showed how Michael Eisner joined Disney as CEO, hired Jeffrey Katzenberg, and then hired Peter Schneider. These people reversed Disney’s fate with the so-called Disney Renaissance. It all started with “The Little Mermaid” and finally watched an animated film, which won an Oscar nomination for “Beauty and the Beast”. The best thing about this documentary is that it is honest and not afraid to shoot arrows at Disney.
The Imagineering Story
Fantasy Story is a documentary series created for Disney+, which premiered when the new streaming service was launched. Unlike other documentaries about Walt Disney, this six-part series tells the creation of Disney theme parks and attractions around the world. The series has been running for several years, originally planned to be shot as a feature film in 2013, but later expanded to Disney+.
The documentary began with the creation of Disneyland and its sister parks. It discusses the design and construction of the park and the creation of actual rides in the amusement park. The term “imaginer” refers to the engineers who designed the rides, including the visually impressive “haunted house”, which uses special effects to serve the guests of the park. Director Leslie Works will show another major documentary in “Pixar’s Story” next year.
Assembling A Universe
The only reason to stop this Marvel Studios documentary is its short length. However, the good news is that there is another documentary “Expanding the Universe on Disney+”. The combined time of these two documentaries is about one hour. For fans who want to learn more about the creation of Marvel Cinematic Universe in the early days, these are good documentaries-the first was released in 2014.
Since the documentary premiered on the American Broadcasting Corporation (ABC), it also talked about Marvel’s S.H.I.E.L.D. agents, which ultimately has nothing to do with the movie. However, the “Extended Universe” has a long way to go in giving subscribers a deeper understanding of the expansion of the MCU in the five years since the release of “Assembled Universe”.
Empire Of Dreams
Unlike the MCU documentary on Disney+, the “Star Wars” documentary “Empire Empire” is one of the most comprehensive documentaries in all film series. This is a documentary made for the DVD release of the 2004 “Star Wars Trilogy”, and it took two and a half hours to produce three of the most influential science fiction movies in history.
Director Kevin Burns hosted the documentary, and Robert Clotworthy (“The Curse of the Oak”) narrated it. A shortened version was released on A&E Network, but the Disney+ version is a regular extended version, although it does claim that it is “edited for content.” The documentary is divided into five parts and interviews everyone who participated in the trilogy.
