Disney+ has been a hit since it arrived on people’s screens, bringing a tremendous back catalogue of some of the best family films and TV shows of the last century, as well as original stories from our favorite characters.

While Disney is most commonly associated with programming for children and young families, it has used its streaming platform to bring the likes of Star Wars spinoff The Mandalorian, Marvel films and National Geographic documentaries to its audience.

In August 2020, they’re bringing a whole host of new content to Disney+, from sci-fi stories to Hollywood blockbusters. Here’s everything coming to Disney+ this month.
