New on Disney Plus (July 2020): All the movies and shows arriving this month

What's new on Disney Plus in July 2020? Well, quite a lot, actually. 

While Disney's streaming service may not have quite the sheer number of original shows as Netflix quite yet, the Mouse has a few very exciting releases coming over the next few weeks. First and foremost is Hamilton, the filmed version of the broadway musical that retells the story of Founding Father Alexander Hamilton. Tickets to the Broadway show were almost impossible to snag, and now there's finally a way to get front row. If you're not excited yet, you should be.

Muppets Now also starts later in the month. The original series sees Kermit and crew return for a particularly odd concept: this is the Muppets unscripted. Each episode is split into three parts – a game show, a cooking show, and a talk show. 

There's also a few major movies arriving on Disney Plus, thanks to Disney deciding to to do "Summer Movie Nights" – a big new release every Friday. Solo: A Star Wars Story (opens in new tab) is first up. Ron Howards adventure in a galaxy far, far away is heaps of fun – perhaps surprisingly so, considering how an origins story about Han Solo could have gone catastrophically wrong. If you missed this in cinemas, be sure to catch it here. Then there are entries from the X-Men and Pirates of the Caribbean series to look forward to, plus Incredibles 2!

One further note: this is what's coming to Disney Plus US. For our readers in the UK, the originals coming to the streaming service will also be available in the UK, but Disney has not revealed which other major titles are coming. We'll update this as soon as we know.
