Disney Plus US in April 2020: every movie and show, including Pixar's Onward

Update: Onward is confirmed as coming to Disney Plus in the US (not UK) on April 3, so we've added that to the release list below. It now seems like a more exciting month!

Original story: Disney Plus has revealed everything coming to the streaming service in the US in April 2020. The line-up looks okay, but after heavy hitter Frozen's surprise-released in March, it was always going to look a little fallow for the time being. Still, there are a few interesting movies and shows in there, including a David Lynch film, of all things. 

Don't worry, Blue Velvet isn't coming to the family-oriented streaming service. Instead, it's the very un-Lynch The Straight Story, a biographical movie of Alvin Straight, who rode a lawnmower from Iowa to Wisconsin. It doesn't feature any of the trademark weirdness of the director, but it does feature one of his favorite collaborators, Harry Dean Stanton. 

Highlights of Disney Plus in April include weekly episodes of The Clone Wars, and the pick of the older movies is probably Nicolas Cage flick National Treasure. Who knows, though: maybe Disney will drop another big hitter out of nowhere like it did with Frozen 2. Maleficent: Mistress of Evil and Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker are yet to arrive on the streaming service.

The next big Disney Plus show is The Falcon and the Winter Soldier, which is due out in August. Due to the current global health crisis, though, we're unsure if that'll affect the timeline of scheduled
