Witches. Aliens. Ghosts. Enter a world of fantasies and fears in Just Beyond, an Original Series streaming October 13 only on Disney Plus.I'm liking the look of this, a little bit Eerie, Indiana, a little bit Fear Street, a little bit Creepshow, a quality mainstream Disney slice of gateway horror.

Why isn't it December 29th already?
As much as I love the Marvel 'Verse and all the other amazing stuff that comes with my favourite streaming subscription - Disney Plus - it will always be the Star Wars material that lands closest to my heart.
This poster alone - for The Book of Boba Fett - gives me geeky tingles.
"The Book of Boba Fett, a thrilling Star Wars adventure, finds legendary bounty hunter Boba Fett and mercenary Fennec Shand navigating the galaxy’s underworld when they return to the sands of Tatooine to stake their claim on the territory once ruled by Jabba the Hutt and his crime syndicate."

In the increasingly competitive world of streaming services, I often find myself wondering if it might be time to drop my Netflix subscription (as it generally sees the least use compared to Disney Plus, Shudder, and Prime) but then they flood my feed with an array of wonderful trailers to remind me why I can never give them up.
I'm still bitter over the streamer's rotten treatment of Jupiter's Legacy earlier this year, but casting an eye over this parade of new and returning shows helps salve those hurt feelings.
Not everything I'm excited about is fantastical and mythological either, there's these:

Wikipedia tells us:
The first Den story, as told in the short film Neverwhere, is clearly inspired by the Edgar Rice Burroughs John Carter of Mars novels.
In the beginning of the film, an office worker is shown reading the 1963 reprint of A Princess of Mars, before he is turned down for a date by a coworker and quits his job.
He then builds a machine that opens a portal where a "deposed queen" beckons him to enter another world.
Turning into a muscleman he fights several monsters, including four armed monsters reminiscent of Burroughs’ Green Martians.
Den is then sent on a mission by the Queen to retrieve the Locnar and, after succeeding, returns home to his mundane life.Den would return to the world of cinema as the star of an eponymously titled segment of the 1981 Heavy Metal animated movie, where he was voiced by John Candy.
