In September 2022, Disney+ will have a celebration with some of its biggest releases of the year and specials about its most popular titles.
In September 2022, Disney+ is celebrating with a bunch of big releases, such as the live-action version of a Disney animated classic, a new Star Wars TV series, new adventures from the Mighty Ducks, the return of the Sanderson sisters, Thor’s newest adventure, and behind-the-scenes looks at various Disney+ original projects. Disney+ is the home for all things Disney and its different branches, and as such, it has built a catalogue with a variety of content for all ages and tastes, though it mostly keeps a family-friendly vibe. Disney+ adds new licensed and original content every month, and September will see some highly anticipated titles joining the fun.
August didn’t see many TV shows and movies arrive at Disney+, but the Mouse House’s streaming platform welcomed Pixar’s Lightyear, Marvel’s She-Hulk, a series of short films starring Groot, a new LEGO Star Wars special, and new episodes of some of its original series, such as High School Musical: The Musical: The Series. When it comes to licensed content, September will mostly add titles from National Geographic, along with the sing-along versions of Frozen, Frozen 2, and Coco, but all eyes will be on Disney+ Day on September 8, which will see the addition of a bunch of special content as well as the release of a variety of projects.
Among those exciting additions are Thor’s newest adventure in the MCU, the live-action version of Pinocchio, a new Star Wars TV show, a new season of The Mighty Ducks, and the long-awaited return of the Sanderson sisters. Here’s everything new to Disney+ in September 2022.

Adrienne Tyler is a features writer for Screen Rant. She is an Audiovisual Communication graduate who wanted to be a filmmaker, but life had other plans (and it turned out great). Prior to Screen Rant, she wrote for Pop Wrapped, 4 Your Excitement (4YE), and D20Crit, where she was also a regular guest at Netfreaks podcast. She was also a contributor for FanSided’s BamSmackPow and 1428 Elm.

Every time she manages to commit to a TV show without getting bored, an angel gets its wings.
When she’s not writing, you can find her trying to learn a new language, watching hockey (go Avs!), or wondering what life would have been like had Pushing Daisies, Firefly, and Limitless not been cancelled. Breakfast food is life and coffee is what makes the world go round.
Guillermo del Toro said “hi” to her once. It was great.
