Thursday TV: A Disney+ Day Onslaught

The second annual Disney+ Day brings some big productions, chief among them the unnecessary live action/CGI remake of “Pinocchio” (Disney+, streaming) with Tom Hanks as Gepetto, Cynthia Erivo as the Blue Angel and Joseph Gordon-Levitt as Jimmy Cricket.

Owen Wilson and Larry the Cable Guy reprise their roles as Lightning McQueen and Mater in a new animated “Cars” spinoff “Cars on the Road” (Disney+, streaming).

Also new to the service today, the recent theatrical premiere “Thor: Love and Thunder” (Disney+, streaming) with Chris Hemsworth and Natalie Portman.

The new “Epic Adventures with Bertie Gregory” (Disney+, streaming) is a National Geographic production starring the young naturalist, on the hunt for exotic animals.

A couple of new behind-the-scenes features has “Marvel Studios Assembled: The Making of Thor: Love and Thunder” (Disney+, streaming), as well as “Obi-Wan Kenobie: A Jedi’s Return” (Disney+, streaming).

Because it isn’t coming back to broadcast TV this year, the impending online premiere is preceded by a special featuring top performances in past seasons on “Dancing with the Stars: The Pros’ Most Memorable Dances” (Disney+, streaming).

Kids probably won’t be likely to resist the “‘Frozen “& Frozen II’Sing-Alongs” (Disney+, streaming).
