This August, Disney+ is giving us a plethora of animal-based content, ranging from terrifying to cuteness overload, kicking off on August 4 with the first season of America’s Funniest Home Videos: Animal Edition. Dog trainer expert Cesar Millan will return with his new series, Cesar Millan: Better Human Better Dog, where he not only seeks to improve the dog’s behavior, but to strengthen the relationship between the troubled pooch and their owner. As the pièce de résistance when it comes to adorable critters, the premiere of Growing Up Animal happens next month, which follows the early life of animals over 6 episodes. For those looking for something lower on the cuteness scale, shark programming will continue to flood in as Shark Fest forges on. Episodes of Disney originals Chip ‘N’ Dale: Park Life and Turner And Hooch continue to air in August, and the origin story for the most notorious dog-hater of all time, Cruella, debuts on Disney+ at the end of the month.

For those who do not give a hoot about animals of any kind, the streamer premieres some non-animal related content as well. The animated Marvel series What If...? premieres on August 11, and will dive into all of the hypothetical scenarios possible within the Marvel Cinematic Universe. The new series boasts a stacked cast of those who currently play the superhero (or villain) roles on the big screen, including Tom Hiddleston as Loki, Chris Hemsworth as Thor, Sebastian Stan as Bucky, Jeremy Renner as Hawkeye, Mark Ruffalo as Hulk, and Paul Rudd as Ant-Man, Josh Brolin as Thanos, and the late Chadwick Boseman as T’Challa. Disney will also debut a series of short films on August 4, with stories ranging from a lazy, evil fighting dinosaur who won’t take out the trash (Dinosaur Barbarian) to a man who faces a moral dilemma as he waits to cross the street at a light that just won’t change (Crosswalk).

In between all of the Marvel and animal content comes one unexpected addition: the 2007 romantic comedy Dan In Real Life, starring Steve Carrell, Dane Cook, Emily Blunt, Dianne Wiest, and Juliette Binoche. Carrell stars as Dan Burns, and widower and columnist who while on a family vacation inadvertently falls in love with his girlfriend’s brother. Bringing in The Family Stone kind of drama we see! The Robin Williams classic Mrs. Doubtfire will also hit the streaming service next month.
