The witchiness of Hocus Pocus 2 puts a spell on you late in the month. Add in the streaming debut of Dancing with the Stars, and that's Disney+ at its best. 

We've put together our picks for what to watch on Disney+ in September 2022, plus lists of everything coming to the streaming service in the month. 

The Best New Movies and Shows on Disney+ in September

Pinocchio (Sept. 8)

Pinocchio becomes an even realer boy in the latest Disney animated classic to get the live-action remake treatment. Tom Hanks plays Gepetto, and the film reunites him with his old friend Robert Zemeckis, who directed him in Forrest Gump, Cast Away, and The Polar Express. Real boys and girls in the cast include Cynthia Erivo, Luke Evans, and Sheila Atim, with voice performances from Keegan-Michael Key, Lorraine Bracco, and Joseph Gordon-Levitt as Jiminy Cricket. I didn't realize until I saw the picture above that Pinocchio's character design is the same as it was in the 1940 movie, which I personally find weird and off-putting but I know other people think is cute. Disney isn't putting this one in theaters and is instead sending it straight to Disney+, because I guess the studio shot-callers don't think people will pay to see it. This is not to be confused with the Guillermo del Toro-directed stop-motion Pinocchio, which is coming to Netflix in December. [Trailer]       

Thor: Love and Thunder (Sept. 8)

The movie where we, as a society, realized we were starting to get tired of Taika Waititi's schtick. Chris Hemsworth continues to be Thor, Natalie Portman returns as Jane Foster after almost a decade away, the Guardians of the Galaxy are there, and Christian Bale is the bad guy, Gorr the God Butcher. It is what it is. It made a lot of money in theaters, and now it's coming to streaming. [Trailer]

Dancing with the Stars (Sept. 19)

The long-boogieing celebrity dance competition migrates from ABC for its first season on Disney+. And even though it's moving to a streaming service, it will continue to be broadcast live. Alfonso Ribeiro, who won Dancing with the Stars Season 19, joins Tyra Banks as co-host. The cast will be announced at a later date. There's still a lot we don't know about how this new incarnation of DWTS is going to work, but here's everything we do know[Trailer]

Andor (Sept. 21)

Remember Rogue One? That was the standalone Star Wars movie with Felicity Jones from 2016 about rebels stealing the plans for the Death Star. It was pretty good. It's getting a prequel series about Cassian Andor, the rebel pilot and intelligence officer played by Diego Luna, as he infiltrates the Empire on a spy mission. This will be even less popular than Obi-Wan Kenobi, though it will probably be a little bit better. [Trailer]     

Hocus Pocus 2 (Sept. 30)

This year's spooky season will officially begin with the premiere of this sequel 29 years in the making. It's basically the same story again, with teenagers accidentally summoning the Sanderson witch sisters — Bette Midler, Sarah Jessica Parker, and Kathy Najimy — and then trying to banish them before they wreak too much havoc in Salem, Mass. Sam Richardson is in it. Hi, Sam! Always nice to see you. [Trailer]

Watch She-Hulk: Attorney at Law, Obi-Wan Kenobi, and more $7.99 at Disney+
