The Greatest Showman Is Coming To Disney+ In August 2020


The Greatest Showman Is Coming To Disney+ In August 2020

If lockdown was good for anything, it was the chance to binge your way through every movie and TV show available on streaming services. But having reached the end of the scroll for new stuff to watch, you'll be pleased to hear that Disney+ has unveiled its latest additions for August.

Oh, and the really good news? Smash hit musical The Greatest Showman is at the top of that pile. You're welcome.

Eighteen months may have passed since star Hugh Jackman said he was up for a sequel to the hugely popular movie, but at least can rewatch it to your heart's content while we wait for an update. It'll be up on the service from 14 August.

There are also brand new episodes of Muppets Now - who doesn't love those guys? - and the Disney+ original documentary Howard, which is directed by Beauty And The Beasts' Don Hahn and which tells the story of Howard Ashman, the lyricist behind Aladdin, The Little Mermaid and Beauty And The Beast. He was also the creator of 1986 cult classic horror musical Little Shop Of Horrors.

Other notable additions include The One And Only Ivan, which stars Sam Rockwell as the voice of a 400-pound silverback gorilla who shares a habitat in a suburban shopping mall with Stella the elephant (Angelina Jolie) and Bob the dog (Danny DeVito).
