(CNN)Streaming services are understandably hungry for fresh content, but Disney+ has adopted an especially Disney-ish approach in fleshing out its lineup: Pulling back the curtain on how the magic gets made, with a parade of series that serve as DVD extras for those who can't get enough of Marvel, "Star Wars" and Disney animation.

Two additional examples arrive this month: "Marvel's 616," a documentary series examining the marquee brand's comic-book roots, from fairly arcane angles; and "Inside Pixar," a collection of shorts devoted to the inner workings of the Disney unit behind such hit movies as "Toy Story" and "Cars. "

These titles join a number of other shows that celebrate the creative process and its behind-the-scenes architects, including the multi-part docuseries "The Imagineering Story," a deep dive into the history and hard work behind the Disney parks and all those fantastic attractions; and "Disney Gallery: The Mandalorian," an eight-part series breaking down the various artistic contributors to the streaming service's signature original series.

For Disney, whose service has quickly amassed nearly 74 million subscribers, the strategy reflects the pressure to keep people coming back for new material.

"Marvel's 616" premieres Nov. 20 on Disney+.
