Stan: What's New in September 2019

It has never been more important for Stan to put on a strong content line-up, now that Disney+ has put its hat into the ring, backed by the might of its very mighty franchises. So let's take a look at what Stan has for us in September.


With Stan making formal ties with U.S. based Hulu (which, ironically, is owned by Disney), more and more of Hulu's shows will be coming to Stan as exclusives, including the incredibly insightful and, more importantly, funny 'Ramy'. While the show has been released on Hulu for a while, Stan is still your best bet to watch the show (legally) in Australia, when the first season drops on September 13.

A couple of other notable new additions to Stan, but not quite the "newest" shows on the block, are the much talked about BBC American series 'Killing Eve'. Written by the Phoebe Waller-Bridge, the genius behind 'Fleabag', the voice of L3-37 in 'Solo: A Star Wars Story' and the co-writer for the new James Bond movie, 'Killing Eve' stars the impeccable duo Sandra Oh and Jodie Comer as the protagonist and archnemesis. It's an amazing show and if for some reason you still haven't seen it, you can now stream the entire season 1 starting September 5.

There is also the British comedy series 'Gameface' (season 1 - September 11), it comes highly recommended.

Notable returning series include 'Broad City: Season 5', which gets uploaded to Stan's servers on September 30.

Movies, Documentaries:

If Stan is trying to make a mark in September, the movies are where it's at. But before we get to the huge list of new additions, there's also a documentary series that deserves a mention.

'Murder In The Bayou' is a five-part docu-series that investigates the unsolved murders of eight women in and around Jennings, Louisiana. If true crime is your thing, then this show comes highly recommended, and it premieres on September 14 (with new episodes coming weekly).

Now unto the movies.

Still from Creed II

We always start with the newest and biggest movies, and 'Creed II' fits. If the 'Creed' series is a sequel to the 'Rocky' series, then the sequel of a sequel would normally mean a bad movie. But 'Creed II' is not a bad movie. It's not as good as the first, but just like 'Rocky 2', it has its moments. Stream this sequel on September 6.

Throw out the book. That's the first thing you should do before you even attempt to watch 'World War Z' because this Brad Pitt mega-blockbuster has almost nothing to do with the book, other than the title. And if you watch this film with this in mind, then this film is ... still not a very good one. But in the same way that 'Independence Day' and '2012' are not very good movies, but entertaining enough for what it is (a dumb action movie). Stream this dumb action movie on September 15.

The next clump of movies are older ones, but ones that you should definitely watch some time in your life (at least according to me).

Still from Hugo

There is Tom Hanks goodness in Forrest Gump (September 29) and Cast Away (September 1). Fantasy and adventure in 'The Adventures of Tintin' and 'Hugo', both arriving on September 21. Bad lawyer turned good in John Grisham's 'The Rainmaker' (September 14). Gritty and gripping and you asking yourself "what's going on" in 'No Country For Old Men' (September 17). Psychological thriller turned into another genre half-way through in 'The Forgotten' (September 26). And a comedy trilogy that quickly decreased in quality in the form of 'Meet the Parents', 'Meet the Fockers' and 'Little Fockers', all coming on September 27.

Still from Short Circuit

Next up, we have some of the best of the '80s. Not so much the best movies, but perhaps the best representation of the, to borrowing a more current term, "trending" films series/genres of that decade. 'Short Circuit' (September 28), 'Fatal Attraction' (September 30), and 'Pretty in Pink' (September 30) - three very different movies representing three very different styles of films back then.

Stan has also decided to absolutely flood its library with DreamWorks animated hits. It's not all of them, but it might be almost all of them, and all are coming over a few days in the middle of September. Just in time for the school holidays!

Still from Kung Fu Panda

So we have 'Kung Fu Panda' and 'Kung Fu Panda 2' on September 14; 'Madagascar', 'Madagascar: Escape 2 Africa', and 'Madagascar 3: Europe's Most Wanted' on September 15; 'Shrek the Third', 'Shrek Forever After', and the spin-off 'Puss in Boots' on September 16; 'Bee Movie', 'How To Train Your Dragon', 'Monsters Vs. Aliens on September 17; and 'Megamind', 'Over the Hedge', and 'Shark Tale' on September 19. I think that's all of them, but I may have missed a movie or five.

So um, yeah. Lots of movies.


So has Stan done enough in September to ward off the entry of Disney+ in November? Time will tell ...
