What’s Coming to Disney+ in September 2022, Including ‘Pinocchio,’ ‘Hocus Pocus 2,’ ‘Dancing with the Stars’

The live-action “Pinocchio,” starring Tom Hanks as Geppetto, the woodcarver who treats the puppet Pinocchio (Benjamin Evan Ainsworth) like a real boy, premieres on Disney+ Day, Sept. 8. Oscar winner Robert Zemeckis (“Forrest Gump,” “Who Framed Roger Rabbit?”) directs the touching story of love and longing, based on an 1883 Italian children’s novel and iconic Disney animated feature, proving wishes really do come true. Joseph Gordon-Levitt co-stars as Jiminy Cricket.

The film is one of many special treats the studio has in store for its second-annual streaming celebration.

The highly anticipated sequel to “Hocus Pocus” — “Hocus Pocus 2” — finally arrives on Disney+ on Sept. 30. The evil Sanderson sisters are back to create more Halloween havoc in Salem, Mass. It’s been 29 years since someone lit the Black Flame Candle — and the sisters are ready to flex their villainous muscles. The comedy reunites the original film’s stars Bette Midler, Sarah Jessica Parker and Kathy Najimy.

Also coming to the streamer in September is Season 31 of “Dancing with the Stars.” Hosted by supermodel and media giant Tyra Banks and actor, TV personality, and “DWTS” champion Alfonso Ribeiro, this season will be the first for the competition show on Disney+ after being a broadcast staple for Disney on ABC since 2005. The new era for the show heads to the floor Sept. 19.
