Between traditional television, video-on-demand releases, and a growing number of streaming services, it can be hard to keep up with what one should watch week to week. Fortune is here to help you keep track of new releases as well as the occasional older title worth checking out. Take a look at the long weekend’s notable arrivals, a couple you may have missed earlier in the week, and what else is coming soon:

Disney+

Mulan: After its release was delayed multiple times due to the coronavirus pandemic, the live-action remake of Mulan will finally be available to viewers on Disney+. Keep in mind, even if you’re a subscriber, it will cost $29.99 to watch the movie upon its initial release—perhaps a bit pricey for one or two viewers, but potentially worth it for a family.
