Want to know what’s new on Disney Plus in August 2020? We’ve got you covered: the Disney streaming service has several superheroes, new documentaries, and even The Greatest Showman coming your way this month.

Probably top of the billing, especially for MCU completionists, is Ant-Man and the Wasp. Perhaps best remembered for its post-credits tie in to Avengers: Endgame, the movie itself is a solid, breezy Marvel effort featuring Paul Rudd and Evangeline Lilly.

Elsewhere, X-Men is coming to Disney Plus in August now they (helpfully) fall under Disney’s umbrella, as does Fantastic Four.

If heroes aren’t your jam, there’s the usual selection of fantastic behind-the-scenes Disney documentaries – try One Day at Disney or Pixar in Real Life if you haven’t already – plus some of Nat Geo’s always-wonderful wildlife and nature series.

Oh yeah, and there’s a little movie called Beauty and the Beast arriving on Disney Plus later this August. Don’t think we’d forgot about the live-action 2017 billion-dollar remake, which has been sorely missing from the streaming service. 

Check out the full list below and, for those of you looking for what’s coming to Disney Plus UK, come back soon; we’ll update as soon as we know all the Disney deets from across the pond.
