Disney Plus launched in 2019 with most of Disney’s back catalog, but the platform still hasn’t reached maximum capacity just yet. In addition to original content, like the upcoming Andor series, there is a host of older movies and shows that trickle onto Disney Plus each month.

Speaking of Andor, after an initial delay, the new Star Wars series finally premieres! Remaining episodes of She-Hulk: Attorney at Law will also drop on Disney Plus. But most importantly, Pixar’s Cars on the Road debuts! And also the live-action Pinocchio. Disney Plus Day is also in September, so gear up for some making-of documentaries. From the back catalog comes a bunch of singalong versions of Disney movies, along with the streaming debut of Thor: Love and Thunder. And also, the long-awaited sequel to cult classic Hocus Pocus arrives at the end of the month, just in time to kick off Halloween season!
