New on Disney+ UK in July 2022: What to stream, from 'Zombies 3' to 'Under the Banner of Heaven'
It's fair to say that Olivia Rodrigo's star has soared since she first appeared on Disney+ UK in the smart comedy show High School Musical: The Musical: The Series, but she's back alongside the rest of the cast for its summer camp third season this month.
Elsewhere in star power, Andrew Garfield leads the cast of true crime drama Under the Banner of Heaven, in which he portrays a religious detective whose faith is shaken by the murder of a Mormon mother. Sam Worthington, Wyatt Russell and Normal People's Daisy Edgar-Jones are also in the cast for this one.

Original movies coming to Disney+ UK in July 2022
The Princess (1 July)
It might be on Disney+ and it might have princess in the title, but The Princess is anything but the standard slice of Disney royalty. An R-rated adventure, it follows Slender Man and The Kissing Booth actor Joey King as a strong-willed royal who refuses to marry the cruel man to whom she is betrothed — played by Dominic Cooper.
This sparks a violent struggle in which the princess is locked in a tower, but must break free in order to fight for herself and her kingdom.

After its cinema outing earlier in the year, this adult animated movie is making its way to streaming off the back of strong reviews. A spin-off of the long-running comedy series, it follows the Belcher family's struggles when a sinkhole shows up in front of their burger restaurant.

One of the year's standout documentaries, Flee was nominated in three categories at the Oscars, becoming the first movie to be recognised simultaneously in Best Documentary, Best Animation and Best International Feature.

Not Okay (29 July)
Satires of millennials and influencer culture are ten and penny, but this one touches on an even darker element than most. Zoey Deutch plays an aspiring writer who fakes a very social media friendly trip to Paris, only to be caught up in a lie involving a terrorist attack. Her lie leads her into the path of the man of her dreams (Dylan O'Brien), but inevitably the horrifying deception will not stay secret forever.
