August will see a new wave of new films added to Disney+ in the United Kingdom and Ireland including the latest live-action movie from Disney, “Cruella”, which will be available to all Disney+ subscribers, plus the first “Star Original” movie, “Vacation Friends”.  Plus there are lots of new additions to the Disney+ Library including the mega-hit movie, “Aliens”.

Here’s a look at all the films coming to Disney+ in the United Kingdom and Ireland in August:

Vacation Friends

In this raw and raunchy comedy, straight-laced Marcus and Emily (Howery, Orji) are befriended by wild, thrill-seeking partiers Ron and Kyla (Cena, Hagner) at a resort in Mexico. Living in the moment, the usually level-headed couple lets loose to enjoy a week of uninhibited fun and debauchery with their new “vacation friends.” Months after their walk on the wild side, Marcus and Emily are horrified when Ron and Kyla show up uninvited at their wedding, creating chaos and proving that what happens on vacation, doesn’t necessarily stay on vacation.  This will be the first 20th Century Studios film released directly onto Hulu in the US and on Disney+ internationally.
