As many of you may know, Disney+ (Disney’s new streaming service) is launching on November 12th. And Disney has been sharing a bunch of new info on movies and shows that will be making their way to the platform.
From remakes of classic films like Lady and the Tramp to the introduction of new films like Noelle, there will be lots of content to explore. One newly announced project that will be making its way to Disney+ is One Day at Disney.
At the D23 Expo, Robin Roberts of Good Morning America announced One Day at Disney, which will be a collaboration between Disney Publishing Worldwide and Disney+.
One Day at Disney
One Day at Disney will be both a 224-page “coffee table book” and a documentary series released on December 3rd that highlights the talent of those who bring Disney to life.
According to Disney, 76 unique photo shoots took place around the world to capture the creativity of employees and Cast Members from ESPN, Shanghai Disneyland, Pixar, and beyond. Many of these photographs and the stories behind them will be featured in the new book written by Bruce Steele, which can be pre-ordered now!
Disney will also debut a 52-episode short-series called One Day at Disney. It will launch on December 3rd with a feature-length documentary. The shorts will range in length from 4-7 minutes and each will profile a different person! A new short will debut each week.
The new series will take a deeper look into the “unique and surprising roles these men and women call their daily jobs.”
“The series and documentary are from Endeavor Content’s Non-Scripted Division and executive produced by Michael Antinoro and David Chamberlin and produced by Victoria Chamlee.”
