Welcome to the Deep!
Deep in the Plus is a brand new YouTube show/podcast devoted to going deeper into the world of Disney+. Once you’ve watched all the original programming from Disney+, like The Mandalorian, High School Musical: The Musical: The Series, and The World According to Jeff Goldblum, there’s still a lot more content out there to experience. Disney has rolled out over 500 movies from their ever-growing catalog, as well as thousands of hours of classic TV programming. So where do you begin?
That’s where we come in. Each week, hosts Rob and Jill will roll out a different “Deep Cut” from the Disney+ vault to discuss. It could be a Disney Channel classic, maybe an old favorite cartoon, or something you’ve never even heard of. And, they’ll take you even deeper into the app, what’s coming next, and what you need to know to get the most out of Disney’s new streaming service.
On this week’s series premiere episode, Rob and Jill talk about Disney’s 1992 cult-classic musical, Newsies! Directed by Kenny Ortega (High School Musical) and starring a young Christian Bale (Ford vs Ferrari), this film is based on actual events of the New York newsboys strike of 1899. With music from Alan Menken (The Little Mermaid) and featuring Bill Pullman, Robert Duvall, and Ann-Margret, Newsies would go on to become a Broadway musical and a guilty, nostalgic pleasure for Generation X. Is it worth your screen time? Watch this week’s episode to find out!
Plus, get an extra bonus recommendation each week as Rob and Jill present their “Deep Pick of the Week!”
