August is a month full of big-name titles for Disney+, including the streaming debut of “Lightyear” and highly anticipated new series from both the Marvel and “Star Wars” universes.
The animated “Toy Story” prequel “Lightyear” (Aug. 3) drops first, hitting Disney+ a month and a half after its theatrical release in mid-June. The Pixar movie disappointed at the box office, and Disney
execs are surely hoping it’ll be more of a hit for kids watching from home.
A week later comes Season 3 of the charming animated kids show “Bluey” (Aug. 10). Spoiler alert for adults: The animated Australian show about a family of dogs is ostensibly for kids, but it’s also a primer on how to be a great parent. On the same day, “I Am Groot” also drops, featuring a collection of five shorts starring Baby Groot from the “Guardians of the Galaxy” movies.
