September Is A Huge Month For Disney+ Releases

Bring on all the movies.

by Ani Bundel

Since the debut of Disney+ in 2019, Disney has held “Disney+ Day” in November. The first two iterations, held near (if not on) the anniversary of the streaming service’s launch, focused exclusively on Disney+ offerings. However, the House of Mouse is now changing it up, moving Disney+ Day to coincide with its annual D23 convention. That means Disney+ Day is now affecting what’s coming to Disney+ in September 2022, in a very, very good way.

Disney+ already has a lot happening already in September, with the debut of Dancing with the Stars, which is moving from ABC to streaming. It marks the first streaming series Disney+ has done, putting it in an elite group with that capability (one rival Netflix does not have). It also has several highly anticipated debuts, including the TV series Andor and the long-awaited film Hocus Pocus 2. There’s also a large influx of ESPN content, celebrating the kickoff of football season.

But Disney+ Day, which is happening Sept. 8, the day before the D23 convention, is the highlight of the month, with the addition of two highly anticipated films to Disney+: Pinocchio and Thor: Love and Thunder. The former includes Tom Hanks starring as Geppetto and Joseph Gordon-Levitt as Jiminy Cricket, with The Haunting of Bly Manor’s Benjamin Evan Ainsworth as the titular puppet. The latter, which is coming to streaming after spending the summer in theaters, marks the end of the current Thor standalone storyline and launches new foes for the Asgardian to face.

In TV specials, Disney+ Day will include the premiere of Cars On The Road for Pixar fans, Obi-Wan Kenobi: A Jedi’s Return for Star Wars viewers, and sing-along versions of Frozen and Frozen 2 for those who need their Disney princess musical serotonin blast.
