New to Disney Plus in July 2021: Black Widow, Jungle Cruise, and more
Disney Plus launched last year with most of Disney’s back catalog, but the platform hasn’t reached maximum capacity just yet. In addition to original content like the upcoming episodes of Marvel’s Hero Project, there’s a host of movies and shows wrapped up under other streaming services and licenses. Each month, a few new titles will trickle onto Disney Plus.
Summer blockbuster season is back in business, with both Black Widow and Jungle Cruise premiering on Disney Plus with Premier Access. Loki finishes up, and new episodes of The Mysterious Benedict Society and High School Musical: The Musical: The Series drop. Monsters at Work and Turner & Hooch make their debut.
