During the Investors Day 2020 event, Disney announced exciting news for Disney’s streaming service.
We all know and love the Disney heroines, and now, some of them are getting spotlights as they get their very own Disney+ series!
Just Announced: @DisneyAnimation’s first-ever original animated series are coming to @DisneyPlus: Baymax!, Zootopia+, and Tiana are coming in 2022, and Moana, the series, in 2023. pic.twitter.com/s7aOht4uU6

The first new Disney+ series will feature Tiana and her friends for all-new stories in a new musical comedy series. The last we saw Tiana, she was just married to Prince Naveen and the duo was building Tiana’s restaurant, making her dreams come true.
If you never saw the original 2009 film, The Princess and the Frog, the official description reads:
Hardworking and ambitious, Tiana (Anika Noni Rose) dreams of one day opening the finest restaurant in New Orleans. Her dream takes a slight detour when she meets Prince Naveen (Bruno Campos), who has been turned into an amphibian by evil Dr. Facilier. Mistaking her for a princess and hoping to break the spell, Naveen plants a kiss on poor Tiana — thereby turning her into a frog as well. The pair hop along on an adventure through the bayous to seek the help of a powerful voodoo priestess.
And secondly, Disney confirmed that Moana will return in a new Disney+ series as well! Moana appeared in her own film in 2016, by the same name, which is described as:
An adventurous teenager sails out on a daring mission to save her people. During her journey, Moana meets the once-mighty demigod Maui, who guides her in her quest to become a master way-finder. Together they sail across the open ocean on an action-packed voyage, encountering enormous monsters and impossible odds. Along the way, Moana fulfills the ancient quest of her ancestors and discovers the one thing she always sought: her own identity.
