Disney Plus Is Adding 11 New Movies/TV Shows This Week


It’s the start of a new month and Disney Plus has a lot of great content coming across August for its subscribers to enjoy.

There are all the latest episodes of D+’s usual TV shows – One Day at Disney, Pixar in Real-Life, Disney Family Sundays, etc. – to enjoy, plus a few must-see movies.

To begin with, this week’s lot includes Howard, a documentary film honoring the late Howard Ashman, the acclaimed lyricist behind the songs of Beauty and the Beast, Aladdin and The Little Mermaid who tragically passed away at just 40 years old in 1991. There’s also the second episode of unscripted series Muppets Now as well as National Geographic shows Hidden Kingdoms of China and UFO Europe: The Untold Stories.
