What’s New on Disney+ in August 2021

It’s no surprise given the season of Loki that just wrapped up, but the Marvel Cinematic Universe is really doubling down on the “multiverse” concept in advance of next year’s Doctor Strange and the Multiverse of Madness. For evidence, look no further than the premiere of the next MCU series on Disney Plus, an animated show that asks, well, What If…?

The show takes its title from an occasional comic book anthology series published by Marvel since 1977. On the page, What If…? allows writers to explore wacky concepts that wouldn’t fit into Marvel continuity proper but are too fun to ignore—what if Thanos joined the Avengers? If recent history is any indication, the new series is likely to approach things with more of an eye toward the future of the MCU, but the trailer still promises some wacky ideas: Peggy Carter as Britain’s answer to Captain America? T’Challa as Star Lord? What if, indeed.

Other than that, it’s a quiet month on Disney Plus, with the biggest call-out being the regular streaming premiere of Cruella (August 27). Here’s everything on tap in August 2021:
