The Eiichirō Oda manga adaptation premiered on August 31 and was highly anticipated by fans. If you’re feeling adventurous, binge-watch the fifth season of Matt Groening‘s fantasy series (Dis) Enchantment.
HBO Max is focusing on enriching its movie catalog this September. While most of the new additions will come later in the month, this weekend features the neo-noir thriller Brooklyn Orphans by Edward Norton. Although not a new release, this 2019 film set in the 1950s is a worthy addition to the platform’s offerings.
Prime is bringing back one of its most successful fantasy series, The Wheel of Time, for a second season. The series, based on the Robert Jordan saga concluded by Brandon Sanderson, continues the journey of Moiraine (Rosamund Pike) and her companions. Anime fans can also look forward to Kingdom, based on the manga by Yasuhisa Hara. Additionally, the movie Wildflower is being added to the catalog, and on Sunday, the critically acclaimed film Belfast by Kenneth Branagh will be available.
Disney+ may not have many new premieres this weekend, but it does offer a range of ongoing series. The latest episode of Futurama is out, marking the midpoint of its current season. Fans of Only Murders in the Building can catch up with its fifth episode, and those following the Star Wars universe can join Ahsoka Tano and Sabine Wren on their mission against Grand Admiral Thrawn. On the first weekend of September, major streaming sites offer many possibilities. For anime, neo-noir, and fantasy series fans, there’s something for everyone. So take your iPad or phone, relax, and enjoy a weekend of streaming.
