UPDATE: “Legend of The Three Caballeros” to Make US Debut on Disney+, Release Date to be Determined

This post may contain affiliate links; please read the disclosure for more information.

UPDATE: Thanks to an update from Scott Gustin, we’ve learned that Disney has removed the passage announcing the show’s debut from the D23 article. Gustin has reported that the show is still coming to Disney+, but it may not be when the service launches on November 12th. Keep reading WDWNT for more on this developing story as we learn it.

You might remember that last year, we told you about a brand-new animated series starring The Three Caballeros… which was only available in the Disneylife app in the Philippines.


Well, with today marking Donald Duck’s 85th birthday, it looks like American consumers are getting a present. In a D23 article celebrating Donald’s history on television, author Jim Fanning confirmed that Legend of The Three Caballeros will finally premiere in the United States on Disney+ when it launches on November 12th.

We also have a description of the show, courtesy of Fanning:

Donald [Duck]’s latest TV venture is also one of his most thrilling. Legend of The Three Caballeros reunites Disney’s top duck with his two amigos from The Three Caballeros (1945). In this animated series, Donald releases Xandra, the Goddess of Adventure, from an enchanted Atlas. Suddenly the Duck, José Carioca, and Panchito find themselves battling mythical monsters around the globe, from the Egyptian pyramids to Mount Rushmore. Legend of The Three Caballeros is expected to be available on Disney+ when Disney’s new direct-to-consumer streaming service launches on November 12, catapulting Donald into a new level of groundbreaking television stardom.

So, what kind of adventure will Xandra have in store for our favorite feathered trio? We’ll just have wait until Disney+ launches on November 12th to find out! (Or head to the Philippines.)

Which Donald will this be? Tony, or the pale imitation from “roadster racers”? Really hope it’s Tony. The other guy is Ok…. but to me he sounds like he is doing the voice the wrong way.

Anyway, screenshots look great, hope it’s good!

The whole show has been online from various illegal site (in addition to YouTube uploaders) for a long time now. It is really good and funny, and I really recommend watching it on Disney+ so that we can get another season.

It’ll probably depend on the market they’re trying to go for. Roadster Racers is geared towards pre-schoolers so they’re keeping him a little more tame vs the cartoons I watched as a kid.

Is it just me or does it look like they’re running around with Wonder Woman?
