What to watch on Disney+ Canada in January 2022

Including streaming premieres of Eternals and FX series like Atlanta, The Americans, Legion and What We Do In The Shadows


Our picks for the best new movies and TV shows coming to Disney+ Canada in January 2022.

All the FX shows you can eat

Rejoice, Canada! Some shadowy rights deal has ended, and a slew of FX programming is going up on Disney+’s Star tier this month, meaning the complete runs of The Americans (January 5), Baskets (January 26), Legion (January 19) and You’re The Worst (January 26) are ready to binge, along with the first two seasons of Atlanta (January 26), Pose (January 19) and What We Do In The Shadows (January 19), the fourth through ninth season of American Horror Story (January 12) and the recent limited series A Teacher (January 12) and Black Narcissus (January 19). Still no sign of Y: The Last Man, but it’s bound to turn up eventually.

Marvel Studios

Gemma Chan and Richard Madden stand very still in Marvel’s Eternals.

Eternals

I won’t mince words: I absolutely hated Chloé Zhao’s Marvel epic, which turned Jack Kirby’s cosmic super-beings into an estranged family of mopes. But a lot of people have been waiting for the Nomadland Oscar-winner’s take on superhero tropes to come to streaming, and now that theatres are closed again I guess there are worse things one could do than spend two and a half hours watching Gemma Chan, Richard Madden, Kumail Nanjiani, Don Lee, Angelina Jolie and Salma Hayek standing around trying to invest one-dimensional characters with anything like life. Or you could just watch Shang-Chi again, of course. That one’s great. January 12

The Ice Age Adventures Of Buck Wild

Hey, do you remember Buck Wild, the one-eyed weasel voiced by Simon Pegg in Ice Age: Dawn Of The Dinosaurs? (For that matter, do you remember Ice Age: Dawn Of The Dinosaurs? I had to look it up!) He’s finally been spun off into his own picture, which is premiering on Disney+ instead of coming out on DVD as I’d originally predicted. Hey, a lot has changed in the intervening 13 years. But not that much, since this new feature – which follows possum sidekicks Crash and Eddie (now voiced by Vincent Tong and Aaron Harris) into the subterranean dinosaur hideaway where Buck makes his home – sounds exactly like the sort of Ice Age movie you’d get when the core cast has other things to do. But kids love dinosaurs, so this will make them happy. January 28

Marvel’s Hit-Monkey

Bumped from its original launch window last November, this Hulu animated series about a Japanese snow monkey schooled in the ways of the assassin to seek revenge on a Tokyo crime syndicate (for reasons) finally gets in front of Canadian eyeballs at the end of this month. Will Jason Sudeikis’s voice performance as a ghostly assassin who mentors the eponymous warrior primate have dated at all? Nah. Animation is forever. January 26
