What to watch on Disney Plus: New shows and movies in August 2022

She-Hulk: Attorney at Law comes to Disney Plus in August.

Following a slim slate of Marvel and Star Wars content on Disney Plus in July, the streaming service is turning things around in August 2022. New entries in both franchises launch next month, including the Rogue One prequel series Andor starring Diego Luna.

We’re also getting a series of animated shorts called I Am Groot and Tatiana Maslany will join the MCU as Bruce Banner’s cousin Jennifer Walters in She-Hulk: Attorney at Law. Plus, you can watch Lightyear at home on Disney Plus starting on August 3rd.

If you want to sign up for Disney Plus to watch all of the new shows and movies, head to this page. Follow the directions to get a Disney Plus account of your own.
