Disney+ has only been in people's lives for a mere 2 months now. That means 2020 will mark the streaming platform's first year of life in the world of entertainment. A whole 365 days of spending free-time binge-watching your favourite classics lies ahead and that also includes content no one has access too yet. However, if Disney+ Canada's January 2020 shows and movies list is any indication of how the years going to go, subscribers are in for a treat.  

While two months, in the long run, is a short amount of time, it was more than enough time for subscribers to get hooked on shows like The Mandalorian, Encore!, and High School Musical: The Musical: The Series

The company is also getting ready to welcome The Proud Family back into their customers' lives by adding the original show's two seasons onto their list of nostalgic throwbacks. 

If that hasn't gotten you interested yet, it's also a huge month for those who enjoyed all of the live-action films Disney brought to the box office this year. 

Even National Geographic is coming in full force!

Needless to say, there's something for everyone on this list. 

Here are the five best new releases on Disney+ for January 2020:

The Proud Family 

Fans who were wondering why The Proud Family wasn't included on the streaming platforms launch can rejoice. Seasons 1 & 2 will be available to watch starting January 1.
