Streaming Guide August 2023 Streaming Guide August 2023

August’s animation streaming calendar leaves a bit to be desired in terms of new, original films or series, but there should still be plenty to watch as some major titles will be hitting the platforms.

Peacock has August’s highest-profile streaming debut, animation or otherwise, in The Super Mario Bros. Movie, 2023’s highest-grossing movie so far.

Netflix is adding a bunch of big Hollywood features and will bow its new original animated film The Monkey King, directed by Anthony Stacchi (The Boxtrolls), produced by Peilin Chou, and executive produced by Stephen Chow. The platform will also debut new seasons of Gabby’s Dollhouse and My Dad the Bounty Hunter.

Fans of classic Disney animation are in for another treat in August as Disney+ will be adding another batch of digitally restored Walt Disney Animation Studios shorts and a new 4K restoration of Cinderella. And Hulu is getting new seasons of several shows including Solar Opposites (the first without Justin Roiland), My Hero Academia, and the 14th and final season of FX’s Archer.

Apple TV+ will debut its latest original animated series Strange Planet and a new Peanuts special titled Snoopy Presents: One-of-a-Kind Marcie.

Max only has one debut planned for August, but it’s a big one in the first Adventure Time spinoff Adventure Time: Fionna & Cake.

A few notes on the list: The list includes announcements for new seasons of existing shows, however, we do not list new episode releases of existing seasons, as some streamers roll out new episodes in monthly batches. Streamers also often announce new animation releases mid-month. Our guide only catalogs what the streamers announce at the beginning of the month, but, when possible, we try to update the schedule if there are mid-month announcements. The list only includes content premiering on the U.S. versions of these services.
