Ever After: A Cinderella Story
The timeless story of Cinderella is reimagined as a Renaissance-era romance, and it’s a highlight of what’s new on Disney Plus in September.
Gone are Cinderella’s fairy godmother and the pumpkin carriage, and in its place is a story about a tenacious young woman who takes control of her own fate, the French prince whose heart she captures, and a royal case of mistaken identity. (And yes, a glass slipper comes into play!) It’s a Cinderella story steeped in realism with Leonardo da Vinci factoring in as a major character.
Logan may be James Mangold’s X-Men crowning achievement, but his first take on Wolverine is entertaining—and a mass improvement on X-Men Origins: Wolverine. (Also known as the film that introduced a zipped-up Deadpool.)
The Wolverine picks up after X-Men: The Last Stand and follows Logan (Hugh Jackman) to Japan as he tries to help out an old friend. However, after his arrival, he’s forced to face his past as he goes on the run with a young woman. On their tail are other mutants, the Yakuza, and a villain known as the Silver Samurai, who all target them for one reason or another.

Earth to Ned
Ned and Cornelius, two aliens soldiers who were sent to Earth to invade it, abandon their plans and instead host a late-night talk show in this original series from the Jim Henson Company. Ned and Cornelius fall in love with Earth as their celebrity guests teach them about human culture, but they have to keep their home planet—and the Galactic Fleet admiral—from discovering the existence of their talk show.
Once Upon a Time
Just as Disney’s efforts to remake its extensive catalog kicked off, ABC launched a series from Lost writers Adam Kitsis and Eddie Horowitz that reimagined Disney movies, fairy tales, folklore, legends, and myths and blended it with our world. The series centers on Emma Swann (Jennifer Morrison), the daughter of Snow White and Prince Charming, who’s drawn to the small town of Storybrooke, Maine—which has been placed under a curse—after the boy that she put up for adoption 10 years earlier comes looking for her.
Best New Originals and Exclusives on Disney Plus: September 2020
Mulan might be the most anticipated title out of what’s new on Disney Plus this month. Like many of Disney’s other live-action remakes, it closely resembles the original.
Liu Yifei stars as Hua Mulan, the woman who disguises herself as a man to take her father’s place after China’s Imperial Army calls for a man in every family to fight against invaders from the north and the witch who aids them. While it won’t have the animated version’s musical numbers, Mulan will feature plenty of epic battles.
The film was originally set for theatrical release back in March, but those plans were scrapped because of the coronavirus pandemic. After several delays, Mulan is finally debuting on Disney+ as the streaming platform’s first Premier Access film.
In order to watch Mulan, current Disney+ subscribers can rent Mulan for $29.99 in the U.S. (while it’ll be a little cheaper internationally). Unlike other rentals, which are only available for 48 hours after you start watching it, you’ll be able to watch Mulan as many times as you want as long as you have a Disney+ account.

A teenager who’s second in line to the throne (and is uninterested in any of it) discovers that she has superpowers. She’s then invited to train alongside other second-born royals with powers and join the Secret Society. While they might not have the throne, they do have an even more important job: Protecting the world from anything that might harm it.
Best recent releases on Disney Plus: Editors’ picks
“You can tell from the get-go that there’s a gentle and personal touch to Howard. Written and directed by Don Hahn, who worked with Ashman as a producer on Beauty and the Beast, it’s an examination of both Ashman as a person and as a creative mind. It delves into Ashman’s personal relationships but it also doesn’t shy away from the fact that Ashman had failures and that he wasn’t always the easiest person to work with…He had a very particular way of doing things, often informing voice actors how to inject their characters into song recordings. But there’s little malice from people in describing them now because well, Ashman’s notes absolutely made those films better.”

“From its very first note to its last, Hamilton is a marvel. For more than a year following its Broadway debut in 2015, the Tony, Pulitzer, and Grammy award-winning musical-turned-phenomenon, along with many of its stars, was everywhere online … Hamilton brings depths of humanity to Hamilton himself, warts and all, but the greater gift—enhanced with the care and attention that the camera gives them, as well as the book, music, and lyrics by Lin-Manuel Miranda—is the humanity that the other players, some of them larger-than-life figures whose legacy looms large to this day, receive.”
