As the summer slowly cools off and Autumn begins to take over, it’s time to look at what’s coming to Disney+ in the next few months of the Fall, which includes many major summer blockbusters and original films.
While at the moment, in the United States, Disney is generally splitting its film releases between Hulu and Disney+, later this year, Hulu content will become available within Disney+, offering more choice to subscribers. Internationally, all of Disney’s studio’s films head to Disney+, since Hulu isn’t a thing (other than in Japan, but that’s a whole other company).
It’s worth noting that Disney generally doesn’t announce its Disney+ release dates for its major theatrical releases that far in advance, since it wants people to go see them at cinemas or buy them on digital platforms, so we often won’t know officially that a film is coming to Disney+ until a few weeks before. Usually, this is around 90 days after the film is released in cinemas, but Disney is constantly experimenting, resulting in some smaller films from Searchlight Pictures arriving a little quicker.
Here’s a look at what’s coming to Disney+ later this year:
The Little Mermaid
“The Little Mermaid” is the beloved story of Ariel, a beautiful and spirited young mermaid with a thirst for adventure. The youngest of King Triton’s daughters and the most defiant, Ariel longs to find out more about the world beyond the sea and, while visiting the surface, falls for the dashing Prince Eric. While mermaids are forbidden to interact with humans, Ariel must follow her heart. She makes a deal with the evil sea witch, Ursula, which gives her a chance to experience life on land but ultimately places her life – and her father’s crown – in jeopardy.
We do know that “The Little Mermaid” is coming to Disney+ on Wednesday 6th September 2023.
In a city where fire, water, land, and air residents live together, a fiery young woman and a go-with-the-flow guy discover something elemental: how much they actually have in common.
While “Elemental” is available to purchase on digital platforms, no official release date has been announced, but it’s likely to be at some point in September.
Indiana Jones And The Dial Of Destiny
Daredevil archaeologist Indiana Jones races against time to retrieve a legendary dial that can change the course of history. Accompanied by his goddaughter, he soon finds himself squaring off against Jürgen Voller, a former Nazi who works for NASA.
The latest Indiana Jones film is out now on digital platforms to purchase, which means we are likely to see the film added to Disney+ at any time after 30 days, though it might be a little longer since the film was much more expensive to make. My guess, is that it might arrive on Disney+ in October.
Based on the infamous theme park attraction, the film tells the story of a woman and her son enlist a motley crew of so-called spiritual experts to help rid their home of supernatural squatters.
“The Haunted Mansion” is currently out now in cinemas and is likely to drop onto Disney+ around 90 days later, just in time for Halloween, in order to get a huge boost in viewership on Disney+
Tony Award winner Ben Platt and Molly Gordon star in the original comedy “Theater Camp” as Amos and Rebecca-Diane – lifelong best friends and drama instructors at a rundown camp in upstate New York. When clueless tech-bro Troy (Jimmy Tatro) arrives to run the property (into the ground), Amos, Rebecca-Diane and production manager Glenn (Noah Galvin) band together with the staff and students, staging a masterpiece to keep their beloved summer camp afloat.
“Theater Camp” is coming to digital platforms to buy, along with Hulu and Disney+, in Canada on September 14th 2023. Due to the film getting released a little later in cinemas in some countries like the UK and Australia, it might take a little longer to get released in those countries.
“The Boogeyman,” a horror-thriller from the mind of best-selling author Stephen King and is about a High school student Sadie Harper and her younger sister Sawyer are reeling from the recent death of their mother and aren’t getting much support from their father, Will, a therapist who is dealing with his own pain. When a desperate patient unexpectedly shows up at their home seeking help, he leaves behind a terrifying supernatural entity that preys on families and feeds on the suffering of its victims.
“The Boogeyman” was released in cinemas in June and is out now on digital platforms to buy, so we should likely see the film available on Hulu in the United States and on Disney+ internationally in October, just in time for Halloween.
No One Will Save You
Brynn finds solace within the walls of the home where she grew up until she’s awakened one night by strange noises from unearthly intruders.
“No One Will Save You” arrives on September 22nd 2023 on Hulu in the United States and on Disney+ around the world
In “Quiz Lady,” a brilliant but tightly wound, gameshow-obsessed young woman, Anne (Awkwafina), and her estranged, train-wreck of a sister Jenny (Sandra Oh), must work together to help cover their mother’s gambling debts. When Anne’s beloved dog is kidnapped, they set out on a wild, cross-country trek to get the cash the only way they know how: by turning Anne into a bona-fide gameshow champion.
“Quiz Lady” will be coming out on November 3rd 2023 on Hulu in the United States and on Disney+ around the world.
