What's New On Disney+ In August 2021? Marvel's What If And Other Movies, TV Shows, And Originals

Find out everything coming to and leaving the streaming service for August.


In August, Disney+ is offering up plenty of reasons to stay at home with fresh content arriving throughout the month. This includes new movies, series, and classic catalog titles.

There's only a few truly bright spots in the new batch of content hitting the streaming service, and Marvel's What If…? definitely leads the pack on August 11. The animated series dives into various Marvel multiverses and the many possibilities for its character beyond what went down in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. It's the studio's first animated series, though it will feel familiar--it features a voice cast that includes many actors from the MCU, including Chris Hemsworth as Thor, Hayley Atwell as Peggy Carter, Josh Brolin as Thanos, Tom Hiddleston as Loki, Dominic Cooper as Howard Stark, Karen Gillan as Nebula, Michael Douglas as Hank Pym, Michael B. Jordan as Killmonger, and Jeff Goldblum as Grandmaster. And that's just to name a few. Check out the trailer below.

If the notion of alternate histories in the Marvel universe sounds daunting, August 4 brings about Marvel Studios Legends, which "serves as an exciting refresher for the various heroes and villains making their way to the highly anticipated streaming shows premiering on Disney+." The show is intended to "set the stage for upcoming adventures." The most immediate upcoming episodes will feature Peggy Carter, The Avengers Initiative, and The Ravagers.

Finally, Cruella finally hits Disney+ on August 28. Disney, already very pleased with the film's performance, has indicated that a sequel to the Cruella de Vil origin story is already in "early development."
