So much goodness! There's a ton of movies and shows that are new on Disney Plus in August 2021. The calendar for the streaming service is packed, including the premiere of Marvel's next series, the animated alternate-reality anthology What If. Peggy Carter as Captain America? Yes, that's a "what if" scenario that plays out in the new show.

Plus, this month brings the regular streaming debut of Cruella, so if you didn't pay for Premier Access back in May, you can watch it with your subscription now. Also new on Disney Plus in August are more installments of Turner and Hooch and Monsters at Work. And mark your calendar for the season 1 finale of Star Wars: The Bad Batch.

And of course, it's always the perfect time to explore the depths of the Disney Plus library. It is the place to watch the Star Wars movies in order and watch the Marvel movies in order.

Wondering when more MCU shows are coming? Ms. Marvel, Hawkeye and She-Hulk down the road — check out our guide to upcoming Marvel movies and shows.

Trying to find all the new on Disney Plus movies and shows? They now live on a row on the home screen.

Disney Plus is live and available either in the pretty-cheap $7.99 standalone package — which nets you the whole Disney vault and The Mandalorian — or with a $13.99 bundle that includes Hulu and ESPN Plus.View Deal
