The instant juggernaut that is Disney+ might as well be a blueprint for how to excite a subscriber base.

Start with a long history of classics, and occasionally throw some in the "Disney Vault." Younger viewers may not know this, but Disney has always taken pains to make their content collectible and as rare as possible. VHS and DVD versions of classics were given limited release and then "vaulted" to create scarcity.

Because Disney has created some of the most beloved and enduring content in history--fans tolerated it.

There Was Much Rejoicing

We won't say the Disney Vault is a hardship for fans, but they certainly weren't thrilled about it. The introduction of Disney+ as a streaming service assured fans that content would never be kept from them again.

How amazing is that? Not so fast...

Even though Disney+ promised the very best of FOX, Star Wars, Disney, and Marvel, plenty of key content was missing from the Disney+ lineup.

Most notably for many fans, 'Black Panther' was nowhere to be found. What nonsense is this?

The Wait is Over!

The good news is that 'Black Panther' is finally coming to Disney+ on March 4th. Currently, the cesspool of garbage known as Netflix is housing the instant classic. We're happy to see it vanish from there forever.

Netflix is widely reviled by fans for canceling its entire slate of Marvel shows including 'Daredevil' 'Luke Cage' 'Jessica Jones' and 'Iron Fist,' not to mention "The Defenders' which was a ton of fun. Opinions differ on whether Disney or Netflix is the wronged party here, but the fact remains that all the Marvel television shows were canceled without proper endings. Sad!

What Else is Coming to Disney+ in March?

'Black Panther' isn't the only fan-favorite franchise due to arrive on Disney+ in March.

'Ice Age' drops March first, in case you haven't had your fill of extreme cold yet. The sequel to Doctor Doolittle arrives March first as well.

Later in the month comes the much-awaited 'Stargirl' premiere. Can you ever have too many amazing girl heroes? We can't see how.

But the news isn't all delightful for Disney+ offerings. Sadly, 'A Wrinkle in Time' also drops in March. If you're not careful, you might accidentally see some of it. We cannot caution you strongly enough against this. It's very, very bad.

Cooking Shows? Reality TV? Really?

Disney+ isn't just about classic movies and old-school animated features. Offerings on Disney+ include classic National Geographic content--which means tons of animal shows.

This year, Disney promises a cooking show focusing on the delightful and thematic dishes you can experience at Disney parks. A separate offering details the many options for Disney wedding parties. Sure, these sound like commercials telling you ways to spend more money on Disney stuff. But we're pretty confident that these shows will be watched and imitated.

If you don't have Disney+ yet, what the heck are you waiting for?
