When Disney+ launched on November 12, 2019, many fans noticed content missing from the service. Some Marvel and Star Wars movies weren't included, and even though Disney purchased many of Fox's assets, those highly-beloved films like the X-Men franchise haven't been included either. However, this summer, Disney+ has announced some of those films are about to arrive to the streaming service.

Alongside a promotional video, Disney released information about some of the high-profile movie releases on Disney+ between July and September. It all kicks off on Friday, July 3 with the release of Hamilton, which was originally going to release in theaters in October 2021, but because of the pandemic, Disney has decided to push it to the streaming service more than a year early. Check out the sizzle reel of the upcoming movies below.

The most notable of the releases are three X-Men movies--four if you count 2013's The Wolverine. Sadly, we're not getting all three of the original X-Men movies from the early 2000s. On July 10, X-Men: Days of Future Past arrives; on July 17, X-Men: Apocalypse; and on August 7, the first X-Men film. To date, there have been no X-Men movies on the streaming service, and the only Fox Marvel movie is 2015's Fantastic Four.

Additionally, Solo: A Star Wars Story hits the service on July 10, and finally, all of the Star Wars movies will be on Disney+. Another notable arrival is on July 31, when Pixar's Incredibles 2, as it's one of the few Pixar movies not on the streaming service. For more upcoming streaming info, make sure to check out what's coming to Amazon Prime Video, Netflix, Hulu, Shudder, and Disney+ for July.
