There's also some National Geographic content coming down the pipeline, including a series called The World According to Jeff Goldblum.

Pixar's theatrical shorts will be made available on day one, including shorts featuring "Toy Story" characters Bo Peep, in "Lamp Life", and Forky, in "Forky Asks a Question".
